Xfce4.10 with firefox > open containing folder opens dolphin?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Firefox 15.0.1 > Tools > Downloads or
Ctrl+Shift+Y > open containing folder always brings up dolphin?

Nothing I could find in about:config gave any clue.

Anybody know how I can have Thunar be used instead?

slackware15 x86_64 Multilib
Xfce 4.10
KDE ? dunno, whatever the subscription media installs, I never use it.

Thank you,

If Xfce's default file manager is thunar, it does not mean that Firefox's will use it.

Firefox is not part of Xfce and not event a GTK app for that matter. Much the same applies to chrome. The problem lies with these browsers and not Xfce.

On my system (Slackware 14 i386 without KDE installed) "open containing folder" in firefox does nothing (maybe because dolphin and nautilus are not installed).

Edit -> preferences -> applications -> content type: file -> action type: /usr/bin/thunar

For me this now opens thunar when selecting "open containing folder".
