Hi, thanks for the report.
It seems that the problem comes from the .desktop file that contain "inode/directory;" in MimeType. Rebuilding the package without this fix the problem, but upstream proposed an other idea : http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/python-apps-team/2009-May/001535.html but it has no effect for me.
I'm trying to find a better solution than removing inode/directory;

That's pretty much what I came up with as well.  I tried placing those settings in both my user and global defaults files without improvement before opening the bug.  It almost seems like Firefox is using a different source for its mime data.  xdg-open, gnome-open, etc. seem to pick up the changes properly.

I think this bu is also related to :
#497710 #508585 and #508667

Comment 4 Nicoleau Fabien 2009-11-29 00:07:01 UTC
It seems ok under F12, with firefox-3.5.5-1 and nautilus-2.28.1-4

Comment 5 Russell Harrison 2009-11-30 15:31:11 UTC
It seems to be working properly in F12 for me as well.

As the problem was not directly related to phatch, I'm closing the bug.
