Selinux prevents f-spot from launching a browser when authorizing Flickr access

Description of problem:
Selinux prevents f-spot from launching a browser when authorizing Flickr access.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Export photo from f-spot to Flickr.
2. Press Authorize!
3. F-spot opens an error message.
F-spot returns the following error message:
Startup failed because of the following error:
An SELinux policy prevents this sender from sending this message to this
recipient (rejected message had interface "org.freedesktop.DBus" member "Hello"
error name "(unset)" destination "org.freedesktop.DBus")
SELinux policies are centrally managed. So filing it against SELinux policy
package is better. Reassigning.
Can you post the AVC denied messages from /var/log/messages or /var/log/audit
(if you are running the audit deamon)?
Sorry, no msg in neither /var/log/messages or /var/log/audit.
Are you sure this is an SELinux problem?
If you run setenforce 0, does the command succeed?
If it does, could you load the following policy and then try the command with
semodule -b /usr/share/selinux/targeted/enableaudit.pp
run your command
semodule -b /usr/share/selinux/targeted/base.pp
to turn off additional audit messages.
I think the bug can be closed, it is working now. I think the problem was that I
was using epiphany as the default browser at the time. I have tested with both
firefox and epiphany, and everything works now.
