Midori is not available as a choice of default browser in Gnome
Last modified: 2013-11-11 19:34:20 EST
Please add Midori as an option for default browser in Gnome. Thanks!
Moving this over to control-center as I think thats where this can be set.
On my F20 installation, Midori shows up fine in the gnome-control-center browser selection dialog:
It doesn't work for me in F19. After a fresh install and installing Midori the settings dialog only gives me Firefox as option.

Hasn't for 3 years:
Does midori have "x-scheme-handler/http" and "x-scheme-handler/https" as mime-types it can handle?
Not a control-center bug anyway.
Yes, it does have those. I have no idea what the process beyond that is or where I could change anything in midori.
Thank you Bastien for the link. It led me to a solution (albeit not a "good" one):
sudo vim /usr/share/applications/defaults.list -> %s/firefox/midori/g
A midori.desktop file is available and it has almost the same mimetype list as Firefox has - besides XUL.

Running update-desktop-database in %post so that the mime-types are actually installed, to start with.
