Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: firefox-3.0
Installed version of firefox is 3beta5. I've installed the packet Firefox-3.0(version 3.0~b5+nobinonly-0ubuntu3) via kubuntu adept packet manager.
Had the same issue on both Gutsy (7.10) and Hardy (8.04).
Opening file extensions, for instance .torrent, in Firefox 3 opens wrong
default application (in my case for .torrent = Ark).
Changing in Kubuntu's system settings for "default applications - file extensions" won't help. The issue seems to be limited to Firefox.
Inside Firefox you're suppose to change this via Edit -> Preferences -> Applications tab. Under content type and action the list is empty.
The solution that worked for me was to install the packet: firefox-3.0
-gnome-support (version 3.0~b5+nobinonly-0ubuntu3)
** Affects: firefox-3.0 (Ubuntu)
