Problem with link between Evolution and Firefox

In poking around with the apparently well-known Firefox/Java plugin problem (which will be in a separate post), I have somehow got Evolution directing http links in the text to a non-existent Firefox.
This is presumably a soft link in the Evolution configuration. How do I re-set it to the correct value?
I have tried re-installing both Evolution and Firefox but the problem persists.

Re: Problem with link between Evolution and Firefox

I finally solved this one for myself. In case others need to know -
In ~/.local/share/applications/preferred-web-browser.desktop there is an "Exec=" line which had somehow got to be pointing to a no longer existent copy of Firefox.
