External links won't launch Firefox
Hi, I was working with Chromium since a year or more without any problem. As Chromium is not updated in the ppa since version 18 I have removed it and switched back to Firefox.
I made Firefox the default browser but clicking a ling inside email (thunderbird) continues to launch Chromium. So I removed Chromium, and now when I click a url link from inside Thunderbird it does not launch nothing at all ... no reaction at all. Of course I can copy and paste the link manually to Firefox and it works, but it's a pain.
I have already check the following:
- Firefox IS the default browser. It is set both in Firefox and in Gnome applications setting
- In: ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list , firefox is well configured
- Also in: /usr/share/applications/defaults.list
I use Ubuntu 12.04.
The same occurs either I login with Unity or Gnome 3
I discovered this with Firefox 14.01 (did not used it before, so I don't know if it would work ok with previous versions). Now I have updated to Firefox 15 from the ppa beta channel... no change in the behaviour.
Thanks for any help...
