All 3 files have same owner, group and permissions (100644).  Newly
created foo.desktop also fails.  I changed the URL in the non-working
file to the same as one of the working ones, worked OK. Changed it
back to the original URL, it failed. Copy & pasted non-working URL
into Firefox, it opened OK.
