Description Dean A. Calhoun 2004-09-22 18:06:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20040904 Firefox/0.9.3

Description of problem:
I did not install the Ephinany(sp?) web browser.  I installed Firefox
instead.  After logging in and clicking on the Web Browser icon in the
bar at the bottom of the screen I was presented with an error message
that said something to the effect of 'no browser found'.  I then had
to choose Firefox as the default browser.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Fresh install of Fedora Core 3 Test 2
2.During package selection choose Firefox and deselect Ephinany(sp?)
3.After initial boot select the Web Browser icon from the toolbar at
the bottom of the screen.

Actual Results:  An error dialog that the browser could not be found,
followed by a dialog that let me change the default browser.

Expected Results:  That Firefox would have been set as the default

FC3 Test2 shipped with the default icons on the panel launching the
"Preferred Applications", but (with protest from me) we are heading
toward hard coding those to the Red Hat default applications instead.
 This is currently not yet in rawhide.

This is not specifically a firefox problem, but more of a distribution
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-02 17:08:18 EST
How does this currently fare with released FC 3?
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-03-02 22:04:25 EST
This was fixed by me and jrb right before FC3's release, at least for new Gnome
profiles.  Nothing we can do about old profiles.
