Simple fix.  In the File Associations dialogue, where I selected Firefox, I 
needed to use this as the command to launch firefox:

/opt/software/firefox/firefox -remote 'openURL(%u,new-tab)'

Which not only gets Firefox to run instead of Konqueror, but also opens the 
link in a new tab.  Pretty sweet.

I have nothing against Konqueror.  But I have all my bookmarks and preferences 
set in Firefox just the way I want them, and don't want to change right now.
