This question has been answered several times on this mailing list.
It means your installation is not correctly done.

Are you 100% sure that gnome-default-applications-properties is
configured to open links with a browser that is installed on your
system ?

Hi Damien,

Per my OP, I'm running KDE, not GNOME.  But Firefox is selected as the default browser.  I did try switching to Konqueror, but to no avail.

Yes, Firefox has been re-branded as  "Burning Dog", but the executable is the same.  I used Adept to pull down Ekiga from my distro's official repository, so I didn't do anything out of the ordinary in my installation.  I can use one of the other PC-to-Phone providers, but prefer to support Ekiga through your partner, if possible.

Thanks for taking the time to help.
