Question How to launch gedit from Firefox


Hi,

I'm trying to set up the Firefox extension 'Web Developer' to view the source of a webpage with gedit.

I've done this previously on Windows with notepad just by adding the command 'notepad %1' to the appropriate entry in 'Web Developer'.

In Firefox under Linux Mint 9, I tried replacing that command with 'gedit %U' but nothing happens. I can launch gedit from a terminal, but how do I get it to run from another application?

Thanks.

Oops. Sorry, this turns out to be a bug in the 'Web Developer' extension.
