Hello, Sandro, there is a "per-user" setting for the preferred browser in the
gnome environment. It can be reached by the systems -> settings -> preferred
apps (or something alike, I am translating from french).

As far as I know, it seems to set a few keys in the ~/.gconf folder :

[12:26:43 fou at leila:~]$grep -r iceweasel .gconf/desktop/
.gconf/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/%gconf.xml:		<stringvalue>iceweasel
-new-tab &quot;%s&quot;</stringvalue>
.gconf/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/about/%gconf.xml:		<stringvalue>iceweasel
-new-tab &quot;%s&quot;</stringvalue>
.gconf/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/https/%gconf.xml:		<stringvalue>iceweasel
-new-tab &quot;%s&quot;</stringvalue>
.gconf/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/unknown/%gconf.xml:		<stringvalue>iceweasel
-new-tab &quot;%s&quot;</stringvalue>
.gconf/desktop/gnome/applications/browser/%gconf.xml:		<stringvalue>iceweasel</stringvalue>

Most of the gnome apps (pidgin, xchat) seem to follow that setting
