Well, I've changed the default browser to opera in the Preferred Applications:

enter image description here

firefox is still in the dash. Before this Chromium was the default browser, and it was in the dash after making it the default browser.

For example: I've changed The default music player to Clementine and it didn't take time to show in the dash :enter image description here

But the problem is still that Opera isn't showing in the dash, I think that there is something preventing opera from showing in the dash.

Did you reboot or restart unity after that? That's when it worked after switching to thunderbird for me. – K. Hendrik May 14 '11 at 16:35
@K.Hendrik Yes,I did a restart.Should I do again ? – Binarylife May 14 '11 at 16:37
@Rinzwind it is still the same, Opera is not showing, although I use opera like-everyday. – Binarylife May 14 '11 at 17:37
Is there a way to tell Opera it's the default browser from it's preferences? – wojox May 14 '11 at 21:06
What to do with questions that describe known bugs? this has been reported on Launchpad and as such is now closed. – Marco Ceppi May 28 '11 at 14:05

I had the same problem. Uninstalling the browsers I didn't want to see in the Dash and then reinstalling them solved it. Try removing Firefox and Chromium; Opera should appear in the Dash and stay there even after you reinstall them.

Looking at Rinzwind bug report does this gconf-editor value match?
