Evolution is a Gnome app and does not respect KDE settings. You have to set the proper Gnome settings for the default browser.

Using the Gnome Control Center

Open the "Gnome Control Center" > Preferred Applications > Web Browser or simply run: $ gnome-default-applications-properties

check 'Custom Web Browser' and set the command to be what you want.

Using gconftool-2

$ gconftool-2 --set --type=string /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command 'mozilla %s'
$ gconftool-2 --set --type=bool /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/need-terminal false
