Description cpawling 2015-02-02 01:31:03 UTC
Description of problem:

In Fedora 21, with Icecat set as the default application for Web, clicking on a web link in another application (e.g., email client) opens a new Icecat window and loads the default home page.  This behavior defeats the purpose of setting a default web browser.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
icecat-31.4.0-2.fc21.x86_64 and icecat-31.2.0-5.fc21.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Set Icecat as default web application in Gnome
2.  Click on a web link in another application, e.g., email client, that uses Gnome's default applications to load links.

Actual results:
Icecat opens default homepage in a new window instead of loading the selected link.


Expected results:
Icecat should open a new tab to the clicked link.

Additional info:
I traced the problem to the .desktop file, i.e.,
/usr/share/applications/icecat-31.4.0.desktop
Line 45 of the .desktop file reads "Exec=icecat".  Adding %u to the line creates the expected behavior, i.e., "Exec=icecat %u".
