Description Peter H. Jones 2010-11-26 10:40:07 EST
Description of problem:
Open Link feature doesn't work in Gnome-Terminal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Display a URL, as in echo http://download.fedora.redhat.com
2. Hover over the URL.
3. Underline appears.
4. Right-click on Open Link.
Actual results:
Get a popup window containing:
Could not open the address "http://download.fedora.redhat.com
Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox" (No such file or directory)

Expected results:
Firefox should launch with indicated URL

Additional info:

As in bug 431369, I did the following:

gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/applications
  exec = totem
  exec_arg = 
  exec = nautilus %s
  default = (no value set)
  current = (no value set)
  number_of_workspaces = (no value set)
  workspace_names = (no value set)
  exec = evolution
  needs_term = false
  exec = evolution
  needs_term = false
  screen_magnifier_enabled = false
  screen_keyboard_enabled = false
  screen_reader_enabled = false
   startup = false
   exec = dasher
   startup = false
   exec = orca -e magnifier
  exec = gnome-terminal
  exec_arg = -x
  nremote = true
  exec = firefox
  needs_term = false

Note also that "whereis firefox" gives:
"firefox: /usr/bin/firefox /usr/share/man/man1/firefox.1.gz" , and
not the "/usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox" location in the popup. Where
is gnome-terminal getting this incorrect location?
Comment 1 Peter H. Jones 2010-11-30 11:48:48 EST
Fixed it!

Created a new user. Works fine.

In my account with the problem, I used Gconf editor and copied the settings
from the new account. Specifically, I set the keys
to contain
firefox "%s"

Works fine now.

Closing as WORKSFORME because I'm wondering if the corruption
occurred as a result of a recent Firefox update.
