That's one of the several file/protocol association "bugs" which simply happen
because Firefox doesn't recognize KDE settings. Firefox as a GTK application
uses gconf and gnome-vfs to get the information what to launch.
On my 10.2 system it tries to open purple-url-handler which seems to be
"correct".
So either modify the gconf setting for the irc protocol or create the pref
network.protocol-handler.external.irc and specify a graphical IRC application
via about:config or manually in your FF profile.
