Description of problem:
When accessing documents over http (e.g. WebDav folders), the document
mime-type handling incorrectly uses a web-browser to handle all
http-delivered documents (even when their mime-types have other
document handlers registered).
When viewing WebDav folders, the contents have correctly assigned
mime-types (e.g. application/msword for a .doc file, in my case). In a
WebDav folder view in Nautilus, selecting right-click->OpenWith brings
up the appropriate assign-application dialog and indicates that
OpenOffice etc. is already assigned to this mime-type (as you'd
expect), but when ever the user tries to open the documents, it
*always* opens it in a web-browser.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a WebDav folder in nautilus (maybe other network protocol,
I've not tried) which contains some documents e.g. OpenOffice or Word docs
2. Open a document by double-clicking or right-click->Open
3. Watch the web-browser open up ...
Actual Results: Document is *always* opened in web-browser
irrespective of it's mime-type
Expected Results: Document should have been openned by the
appropriate registered handlers for it's mime-type
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
This WORKSFORME in more recent releases. As mentioned above, FC2 is Fedora
Legacy (as is FC3) and this is not a security problem.
