Thanks for the link to the firefox bug.

But nevertheless: Is there a setting in a config or registry of wine that i am able to a different web browser?
I need a default webbrowser where i can install plugins in (for example djvu..). Additionally i need a webbrowser with a adressline to be able enter urls.

any further hints?
