Gnome desktop links open in epiphany

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

At some point recently desktop links have started to open in Epiphany, no matter what I do.

I have set Firefox as my preferred browser and I have checked all entries in /etc/alternatives, and everything says ‘firefox’. Still, a link on my desktop will always open in Epiphany, whether I have Firefox running or not.

I have no idea about how to fix it 🙁

UPDATE: It appears desktop links open with the default handler for the mime type “text/html”. Change that to something else and the desktop links will open with that handler. Thanks, Bin Guo.
