I'm using KDE 4.8.4 too.

I had a similar problem with *.svg and I changed my configuration as 

1) In KDE Settings -> Default Applications I switched back to "in an 
application based on the contents of the URL"
2) In KDE Settings -> File Associations -> text -> html I moved Iceweasel 
to be the first item inside "Application Preference Order"

This way I have Iceweasel as default browser and opening *.svg from Dolphin 
works as expected (using inkscape instead of iceweasel).

I hope this workaround can help!
