Hi Saulius!

Thanks for the answer! 

In which file should I add/modify this line? - I can't find an entry beginning with 
"[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\" in user.reg or system.reg.

What I've found is the following item in user.reg:
[Software\\Wine\\WineBrowser] 1088978394

What means "sensible-browser"????  BTW: Can anybody explain which meaning the 
numbers at the end of the headline of a registry item has?

The "link" (or whatever it exactly is) "winebrowser" works also in my installation. 
"winebrowser <URL>" starts mozilla with the used URL, but it isn't registered as as 
default browser. Pegasus Mail also don't start mozilla if I even use "winebrowser" as 
user defined web browser via the settings dialog.

Any ideas?
