Description of problem:
In f22 Beta tc8, konqueror from Favorites (kicker?) by default opens as a file manager.

If I create a shortcut on the desktop (drag&drop -> (kfmclient_html.desktop))(Folder layout, not Desktop with widgets (default)), it is hidden, and command is 'kfmclient openURL %u text/html'

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

reassigning to plasma-desktop, this is currently implemented via

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2015-04-22 20:27:26 UTC


Currently this only difference to default is the addition of konsole and apper,

-        applications << browser << "kontact" << "systemsettings" << "dolphin" << "ktp-contactlist" << "kate";
+        applications << browser << "kontact" << "systemsettings" << "dolphin" << "ktp-contactlist" << "kate" << "org.kde.konsole" << "apper";

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2015-04-22 20:40:28 UTC
Besides the aforementioned

which we patch, there's also:
which contains:

<entry name="favoriteApps" type="StringList">      <default>preferred://browser,kontact.desktop,systemsettings.desktop,org.kde.dolphin.desktop,ktp-contactlist.desktop,org.kde.kate.desktop</default>

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2015-04-22 21:04:47 UTC
OK, I think I'm convinced this is not a fedora/downstream issue.

In short, the default out-of-the-box configuration for "default browser" ends up being:
Exec=kfmclient openURL %u text/html

Since kfmclient_html.desktop ends up with highest preference for handling text/html mimetype (as it should).  But, if opened with empty URL, it ends up exhibiting this bug.

It may be possible to hard-code "Default Browser" to be konqueror to workaround this, ie, set in kdeglobals:
So that ends up being displayed @ systemsettings5->Applications->Default Applications->Web Browser, instead of the default:
"in an application based on the contents of the URL"

though I'm worried about the possible side-effects of making *that* change. :-/

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2015-04-23 18:53:49 UTC
the immediate fix I went for here, fwiw, was to hard-code konqueror as the favorite, instead of relying on plasma-desktop code to deduce "default browser", which as shown here, has some problems.
