Description of problem:
gnome-moz-remote always opens Mozila, even if you set Firefox as your
preferred web browser. IMHO, gnome-moz-remote should just tell GNOME
to tell whatever web browser you have configured to open a window for
you in the URL it was given.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the 'Preferred Applications' preference dialog
2. Select 'Firefox' as your web browser
3. Make sure you've exited out of Mozilla in all it's forms. For good
measure, even start up Firefox.
4. Type this on a command line: gnome-moz-remote --newwin
Actual Results: It starts up a copy of Mozilla with the appropriate
page in it.
Expected Results: It should open a new Firefox window with the page
Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
