How do you set FF as default for Kmail

I've seen some postings on this, but I can't get it to work. I go to File
Associations and set the text, html to
'/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/firefox %u' .

If FF is NOT running, then a clicked html link in an email will bring up FF.
But if it IS running in any desktop, FF will not load. I get an icon on the
task bar and it eventually times out and goes away.

What is the secret I'm missing here?
