Clicking on a live link in a LO 5.1 Presentation results in the

your Desktop Preferences or install a web browser (for example, Firefox)

In fact Firefox is set as default and doing a command click on a link
from Writer works fine.

From looking at the code (shell/source/unix/exec/shellexec.cxx, sfx2/source/appl/openuriexternally.cxx) that error message can misleadingly be presented also when a browser /is/ found, but something else goes wrong when trying to open the hyperlink with the browser.

Marc, what is the hyerlink's exact URL? (In Impress, select the hyperlink---which is easier to do with the keyboard than with the mouse---, select "Insert > Hyperlink," and from the dialog that pops open copy the content of the "Target" field. Alternatively, you can mail me the presentation file, and I'll have a look.)
