    Default Firefox tries to use "easytag" as file browser.


    hi,

    if I open the list of downloaded files in firefox (down arrow on top
    right), right click on a file on the list, select "open containing
    folder", I get "easytag" (an application to manage mp3 tags) instead of
    any file browser.

    This happened since I used easytag the other day, previously it worked
    correctly.

    I do not see where to change this back.

    Using:

    Code:
    cer@Telcontar:~> rpm -qa | grep -i mozilla
    mozilla-nspr-32bit-4.10-1.14.1.x86_64
    MozillaFirefox-23.0-1.29.1.x86_64

    Take a look at firefox-edit-preferences-applications
    and find-out if you can change it to another application.

    Easytag is not listed there at all.

    Usually, Firefox saves all relevant changes.

    Maybe you can search the "about:" pages for the string "Easytag", esp. "about:config", "about: plugins", "about:addons" via "about:about"?

    Nothing in the firefox configuration anywhere points to easytag. I
    scanned the entire .mozilla/ folder with grep.

    The only references are in the places.sqlite because I have a page open
    on the easytag site.


    It must be the desktop who chooses to open files with easytag when
    firefox asks.

    Hi,
    I'm not using easytag so I have no idea how it works, but maybe
    worth looking to the configuration of easytag. there might be an
    option somewhere to disable it running inside firefox

    easytag is not a file browser, it can not work as such, and it has
    nothing configurable related to firefox. I looked, just in case.

    Wow! Thanks! Yes, you are right, that old thread (2008) has the clue.


    It is the file "/usr/share/applications/defaults.list" which contains a
    bad entry:

    x-directory/normal=easytag.desktop

    which is surprising, because the file is dated Jun 8. No, wrong, it is a
    symlink to "/var/cache/gio-2.0/gnome-defaults.list" which is dated Sep
    29 15:24.

    I was looking at "/etc/mime.types" instead.

    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.
