    Just WAG's, but

    Perhaps it is related to an extension? Does this also happen when you run
    firefox in safemode? For a new user?

    Have you searched in the "about:config" settings for something that might
    seem related?

    Nevermind - I jumped into the thread late. Just read the original post...

    That should be easy, for example, to me happen that once, my default open folder conteiner was thunar, i uninstall it, next i restart firefox and try open folder, firefox tell that had no application to open folder and ask me to select one...i put /usr/bin/dolphin....

    Could be a KDE setting, try systemsettings - default applications - file manager - other
    There you can add/remove applications, if there's EasyTag on the list, remove it.

    M solution to your problem, which was identical to mine, was to uninstall easytag. I also had it opening directories when I opened a directory pinned to the panel/desktop. I have no idea why it decides to do this.

    Try kid3 or pinkytagger instead. I use kid3.

    it really was easytag. When running update-desktop-database it recreates mimetypes. The order of applications was incorrect. You should delete smth like "inode/directory" in the "MimeType" line of /usr/share/applications/kde4/<undesired_app_name>.desktop
    Where undesired_app_name is the app that you don't want to see. For me it was gwenview

    sorry for my english.

    P.S. just delete "inode/directory;", don't touch useful associations . After editing the file run update-desktop-database

    look for the answer from Peter Vollebregt in this thread.

    in short: create a file ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list with this contents:
    ------cut-here------
    [Default Applications]
    x-directory/normal=kde4-dolphin.desktop;kde4-kfmclient_dir.desktop;
    ------cut-here------

    if some other application (eg gimp) opens to view PDF documents, you
    can redirect this to okular by adding the following line:
    ------cut-here------
    application/pdf=kde4-okularApplication_pdf.desktop;
    ------cut-here------

    At some point after upgrading from openSUSE 13.1 (fresh install) to openSUSE 13.2 (zypper upgrade) the Firefox dolphin integration was lost. Instead of dolphin the GTK file manager is started.

    The proposed solution with the defaults.list file does not work for me.

    Is there an updated solution for openSUSE 13.2?

    There is no "Firefox dolphin integration".
    Firefox has a KDE integration, that makes it use KDE's file dialogs e.g., but that's totally unrelated to dolphin.

    Instead of dolphin the GTK file manager is started.
    You mean when you click on "open containing folder" in Downloads, as the thread's subject says?

    See those posts for workarounds:

    Or uninstall nautilus, the "GTK" (GNOME actually) filemanager you probably mean.

    Edit this file as root and comment out the last line:

    [D-BUS Service]
    Name=org.freedesktop.FileManager1
    # Exec=/usr/bin/nautilus --gapplication-service

    Note that this has to be done everytime the file gets overwritten.
