    A restart of firefox did not work, probably I have to restart the
    session.

    And next problem is finding out what modified the file, in order to find
    whom to report the bug. easytag rpm, probably.


    It's already fixed upstream, update pushed to GNOME:Apps

    I found that the source of the problem is the easytag.desktop file, and
    mine comes from packman.

    Yes, and it was fixed in February with this commit;
    https://git.gnome.org/browse/easytag...681e8f41b6cf4f

    Needs to be updated by the packman maintainer.
