Description Jiri Koten 2014-08-05 14:42:06 UTC
Description of problem:
I use default Preferred Applications, i.e. Firefox as a web browser, but after upgrade to rhel 6.6 Beta, these are being ignored by other apps. Evolution open links in Konqueror and Thunderbird ask me to choose the app to open the links with.

It's a regression, possibly related to gtk rebase in rhel 6.6.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
control-center-2.28.1-39.el6
gtk2-2.24.23-3.el6

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to open a link in evolution 
2.
3.

Actual results:
Link is not opened in the default web browser.

Expected results:
Link is open in the default web browser set in preferred applications.
