I can't comment on the gconf tool you used, but you could use
to learn how to handle dconf settings by command line. However, the
issue seems to be related to KDE, so neither installing gvfs, nor dconf
settings might solve the issue, for openbox I can chose the browser by
running libfm-pref-apps.

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ man libfm-pref-apps | grep DESCRIPTION -A6
       libfm-pref-apps  is  an application that changes preferred applications - web browser and mail client.
