[xubuntu-users] No file associations in firefox after upgrade

I upgraded from 08.4 LTS to 10.4 LTS with one intermediate step. Worked 
fine except for one issue. Firefox 3.6.12 does not load downloadeded 
files anymore. It asks me what to do (open with... or save) but it 
silently fails to call any application. It can not even show the target 
directory when I tell it to do so in the download manager. I have to 
pick up the file from /tmp or ~/download respectively.
I renamed my user profile, but get exactly the same problem with a newly 
created user profile.

Thanks in advance,
Andreas Säger
