I did another test. I previously had installed Mozilla Seamonkey. I
now set Seamonkey as the preferred browser (System > Preferences >
Preferred Applications) and re-booted. (Just logging out and in again
didn't change the default behavior of Nautilus when I clicked on an html
file; but after re-booting, Seamonkey launches for html files.) When I
next did the same Evolution > Help > Report a Problem, apport then
behaved correctly by opening Seamonkey's browser after apport finished
uploading the files. So, this apparently confirms that the problem is
in Firefox 126.96.36.199, not Evolution nor apport. I see that the Firefox
web site now has a version 188.8.131.52 for Linux in tarball, but it's not
in the Ubuntu repository yet. This may be a good time to get .11 into
the repository as an update, unless it has its own show-stopper bugs.
The Ubuntu repository does contain an alpha of Firefox 3.0 for Linux.
I may try that version to see if the bug has been eliminated in 3.0 yet.
Until then, the workaround is Seamonkey. Setting Seamonkey as the
default browser does not interfere with normal use of Firefox when
