Those '/desktop/....' aren't folders or directories in your filesystem,
they are gconf keys that hold information within the gconf system.  Try
doing something like:

/usr/bin/gconftool-2 -g /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command

This should come back with something like "firefox %s" - this means that
gnome is using firefox as the program that handles URL requests.  What
the command above are doing is changing the programs.  The only bit you
need to change for your own system is the bit at the end in the quotes,
the rest you should type as-is.

Another thing to look at is the gconf-editor program. It shows the gconf keys in a tree list. You
can modify the key values there. You'll see that the "command" key for the http and https are set
to some value. Mine are set to 'mozilla-firefox %s'.
