Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: firefox
step to reproduce:
1° set a keyboard shortcut:
System-->preferences-->Keyboards shortcuts-->Launch web browser --> Ctrl-Alt+I
2° press Ctrl+Alt+I
Expected result: a Firefox windows with the default firefox home page configured by the user. ( ie www.google.com )
Actual result : a Firefox windows with the user home folder.
This behaviour is due to the url handler configured in /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command as /usr/lib/firefox/firefox "%s" , so when firefox is started with a empty url ( "" ) the user home is presented to the user.
