Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: totem-mozilla
The totem-mozilla plugin included from edgy on automatically runs on
full screen videos as well as embedded videos. When you go to a website
containing a video, you typically want to watch it embedded in the
browser when it is embedded in the site, but want to download it if you
are just clicking a file.
For example, thatvideosite.com has embedded wmv's. These work fine, but
then you can click "Download this video" and instead of downloading, it
opens as a full screen plugin.
There is also no obvious way to disable the plugin for certain file
types in the default install. You currently have to go into
about:config, change browser.download.hide_plugins_without_extensions to
false, and then enter properties in firefox to disable it for certain
filetypes. And then, if you disable a file type, it no longer works for
Some sort of better system should be implemented.
** Affects: totem (Ubuntu)
