Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 430668
no plugins detected if firefox is started via htmlview
Last modified: 2008-01-30 17:49:36 EST
Description of problem:
firefox stopped detecting the installed plugins. The funny thing is that if it
is run with --debug switch, everything works as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update firefox to rawhide
2. run it
no plugins are detected
plugins are detected
I thought that's due to the fact I am running f8's nspluginwrapper with
rawhide's firefox, but updating to rawhide version did not change anything. I am
reporting this bug against xulrunner since it is the only related software I
updated since everything was working fine.
works fine for me...
Now I'm puzzled... I downgraded nss and xulrunner to the versions that were
working OK for sure, and nothing has changed. I even tried erasing
nspluginwrapper without success. Do you have *any* ideas why plugins would
vanish from normal mode?
OK, more weirdness:
htmlview: no plugins
firefox: everything OK
What is going on?
OK, I got it. For some reason, Firefox asked to be the default browser, and put
some strange command into preferred browser path. Sorry for the noise.
Wait.... Firefox asked to be the default browser? That's very bad. We should
fix that if you were using our RPMs. If that's the case, please file a new bug.
Done. Bug #430988.
