Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227405
Incorrect setting of firefox config value
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:The config option in firefox as supplied in the Fedora
installation is configured with the config option:
browser.download.hide_plugins_without_extensions is set to true. This means that
when you go to Preferences->Downloads->View & Edit Actions noone of the
associaton informaation between file types and application or plugin that
handles the file type can be seen. This makes the installation of appropriate
plugins much harder to do, especially since most peopple do not know about this
configurationn option. My suggestioonn is that firefox would be distributed in
Fedora with this config uration optiion set to false.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
126.96.36.199 and or 188.8.131.52.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1.chnage the value of this config option
2.Look at the display in Dowvnload-> View&Edit
can't see application and plugin assignments
Most people wold want to see them.
If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest
updates for this Fedora Core release, please file a bug report in the Mozilla
bugzilla located at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org in the "Firefox" product, "File
