Package: nautilus
Version: 2.14.3-0ubuntu1
Severity: normal

When you open a html file in nautilus it will not respect the setting
for default web browser that is set under System -> Preferences ->
Preferred Applications.  It will instead take the program to launch from
the mime information it has.  It is my believe it should take the
default web browser though.
