Firefox under KDE behaves differently than under other desktops.

What's this ? PollKit? ksysguard?
That I'm running temperature sensor and memory/cpu monitoring widgets?

Firefox under KDE (only the openSUSE version) gets default applications
using KDE mechanisms instead of Gnome's GIO.

That's interesting for a number of reasons.

First, other people have advised me to lock-out the openSUSE version and
download directly from Mozilla.

I've tried that and it doesn't work either.

And that's why I didn't jump in earlier. That means the reason is more
complicated on your system and I wanted to do some tests before (what I
still need to do).
I just was pointing out that there is a difference in Firefox when
running under KDE.


It works here under factory (12.1) and Mozilla Repo for Factory.
How I setup thing are like this : first be sure to have in systemsettings under
kde4 the
default ressource pointed to firefox and thunderbird
Default application

Then, and this is the most tricky part, get firefox and thunderbird default for
gtk env
either by using the gnome-control-center, or gconf

in the url handler the mailto has to be set to /usr/bin/thunderbird %s
