Description Denis Leroy 2006-10-10 13:26:50 UTC
In gnome-defaults-applications-properties, when selecting firefox as the default
browser, the three "open link..." radio buttons are disabled.

firefox by default opens a new tab in any running window, even when it's in
another desktop, but using the -browser option forces it to open a new window,
so there's a way to support this.

I'm unclear whether this needs to be filed against
gnome-defaults-applications-properties or against firefox.

If you want to change the firefox settings, change them internally to firefox
for now.  See the firefox Tabs prefs for the way to do it.
