[Bug 196202] Re: Places menu FTP servers open in firefox-3.0 instead of nautilus

Still experiencing this after upgrading to 8.04 and firefox 3.0~b5
+nobinonly-0ubuntu3. In addition, clicking http:// and https:// URLs in
Tomboy, Pidgin and other applications produces no result or "There was
an error launching the default action command associated location".

It seems that when I installed the 3.0~b3 or ~b4 package, some
configuration keys had been created:

khaeru at khaeru-desktop:~$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/ftp
 needs_terminal = false
 command = /usr/lib/firefox-3.0-3.0b4/firefox-3.0 "%s"
 enabled = true
... with similar results for /chrome, /http and /https

Another user who had not installed the 3.0~b packages before upgrading
from 7.10 to 8.04 reports that the /ftp and /chrome gconf directories
don't exist, and that /http/command and /https/command are both (firefox
"%s") (without parentheses). When I manually modified the gconf entries
to match his configuration, the bug disappeared (i.e. Places menu FTP
entries / gnome-open FTP URLs open in Nautilus; HTTP[S] URLs are
clickable in Pidgin/Tomboy/etc.).
