Fedora :: Thunderbird 3.0.4 Won't Open Browser On URL Click

Dec 21, 2009

Just in the past few days, after I installed a recent spate of updates, my Thunderbird stopped opening up URLs from within an email into a browser window.I'm using F12 and just updated to the latest Thunderbird 3.0.4 on the 9th. But things didn't get weird just then. Perhaps it was the update to Firefox on the 16th when I got 3.5.6 that did it. Firefox still opens up a window from my RSS feed reader (Liferea) just fine but Thunderbird can't open diddly unless I manually copy the link location and paste it into the browser window.

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Won't Open Http Links In Browser / Only Https

Apr 30, 2010

When I click on an http link in Thunderbird, nothing at all happens. There's no error message on the console, there's no new browser starting, and there's no new tab opening with the browser already running.

I've tried: sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser, choosing firefox.I've also tried: adding a new string value to Thunderbird's warranty-voiding config: network.protocol-handler.app.http, with a value of /usr/bin/firefox. This was recommended in various threads.But no luck.There's an entry for https - firefox on the Attachment tab of the preferences, and https links are indeed opening in Firefox. But not http.KDE 4.4.2 itself has default mail client and browser set to Thunderbird 3.0.4 and Firefox 3.6.3 (both from the repositories, no website downloads).

Fedora :: Check The Box For 'always Open In Browser Windows'

Sep 16, 2009

I'm running Fedora 11 64bit on an Acer Aspire 3935, dual boot with Windows Vista. I installed three days ago and the system is supposedly fully updated. While doing some routine configuring I noticed that I am unable to access the Preference window of File Management.

I want to check the box for 'always open in browser windows', but therefore I need the Preference window. When I try to access through System > Preferences > File Management, it says starting for a few seconds and then nothing. When I try to access through Computer > Edit > Preferences, the window crashes and disappears. I suppose there are other ways to change that setting, but in any case I'd like to get the general problem solved, not only the setting changed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Nfs Locking Files - Cannot Open For Editing, Or Open Firefox / Thunderbird?

Dec 12, 2010

Server - Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts
Client - Kubuntu 10.10

When I try to open any nfs-mounted file using OpenOffice, I get a pop-up window titled "Document in Use". The text of the message is:

"Document file 'abcde.odt' is locked for editing by:

Unknown User

Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing." I then have three options - <Open Read-Only>, <Open Copy>, & <Cancel> If I cp any of these files from the mounted directory to my home dir (not mounted), I can open them without problem.Also, my firefox & thunderbird date are in this mounted directory as well (sym links to ~dan/.mozilla & ~dan/.thunderbird). Both of these apps hang when trying to open, leaving two processes behind that need to be manually killed. Again, cp'ing the data out of the nfs-mounted dir onto a local dir resolves the issue, so I am 100% confident there is nothing missing or corrupted in the firefox &/or thunderbird data...

relevant entry in /etc/fstab:
server:/nfs/dan/Documents /home/dan/Documents nfs defaults 0 0
relevant entry in server's /etc/exports:
/nfs/dan/Documents client(rw)

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Open File Dialog Not Talking To Browser?

Aug 25, 2011

I suspect this is a Gnome 3 problem and not a Fedora problem, but I have no way to separate the two here. I cannot upload an image from my computer to Weebly or to Google Plus, but strangely enough, I can upload one to Picasa. The sequence of actions goes something like this:

1. Open Weebly editing interface, add a picture element, click on the element to edit/add a picture. It then gives you a choice: from your local computer, from the web, etc.

2. Click on 'from local computer' and my computer opens the Open File Dialog Window.I am guessing that is its name, it is the same window you get when opening a file in any other application, like Gedit or LibreOffice.

3. Navigate to the image I want to upload and double click on it or select 'Open'.

4. Nothing happens.

I am able to upload images from my laptop, running Linux Mint 11 with Gnome 2.

It sounds to me like the Open File Window is not passing on the necessary information to the browser. I have no idea why it works in Picasa and not in Google+ or Weebly.

I don't really expect anyone to have a solution just yet, but I wanted to mention it somewhere, and I didn't see any Gnome.org forums. On the other hand, if someone does have a solution, great.

This is by no means a knock on Gnome 3, it is fine with me and I Iike it a lot more than I thought I would.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Change Default Browser In Thunderbird

Jun 14, 2010

I've been using Thunderbird ( with html attachments opening in Firefox.I just installed the new Chrome browser (5.0.375.70) and like it very much, enough so that I decided to switch from Firefox now that the Add-Ons I like are available for Chrome (Lastpass, Adblock, AutoPager). I've made Chrome the default browser in KDE's "Configure Desktop>Default Applications", but html attachments in Thunderbird still open in Firefox.I've tried most of the fixes offered on this and other forums as well as those offered by Mozilla's various help files, but nothing works. Most suggestions refer to fixes for 1.x versions of Thunderbird and no longer can be used.I just checked another OpenSUSE 11.2 PC with the newer 3.04 version of T'bird and saw no solution there either.

Server :: Setting A Proxy Thunderbird And Other Non Internet Browser?

Aug 5, 2010

I have to set up a proxy for my work's network. No computer except the proxy has a direct internet connection. The proxy will NOT be transparent so it authenticates with Active Directory and allows or denies pages. The squid proxy is up, and working accordingly, denying and allowing what's needed to who's needed. BUT! Thunderbird and Outlook didn't work, so in less than 10 minutes I was forced to fall back.

I read googling a lot, and searching a bit here about socks, which seems to be what I need but also that squid is already a socks proxy. Web pages were the concern, it's not needed that other stuff is authenticated, it might as well be transparent for Outlook, Thunderbird and other programs *for example, it's not needed to block a Warcraft III game, though, allowing it explicitly is not the point either* but as of now, none can connect *haven't actually tried Warcraft though, but stuff like Adobe's updater didn't work either and I recall someone mentioned Windows Live messenger didn't either* The Squid Proxy is a CentOS.

Fedora :: Cleaning Up - Make Epiphany Remeber Tabs After Close Browser And Open It Again?

Nov 13, 2009

I just moved to Fedora 11 from Ubuntu and I am very happy, not even thinking to go back to Ubuntu (because of gma500 driver support). How can I clean up Fedora? On Ubuntu I could go to Synaptics, remove Installed (not residetial) packages, I coud use terminal sudo autoremove, autoclean, clean. On Fedora I found out only one so far: yum clean all. Is there anything else I should now, can you share with me how you are cleaning up your Fedora? Second thing, which is not only related to Fedora, is there any chance to make Epiphany remeber tabs after I close the browser and open it again? Don't really want to use any other browser.

What can I do to make an .avi to stream from my linux machine ( note this is for private use only so i can stream movies on my lunch break or when I am at a friends house this is not to share my stuff to the general public)

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Won't Open Anymore?

Jul 12, 2010

I've been using Thunderbird for a while. Well today it wont open anymore.

I'm just getting a very small and empty window frame, but that's it.

I've tried the command line with -safe-mode, didn't work. I've tried the command line with -profilmanager, didn't work.

The weird thing is that when using gksudo thunderbird, it does open (but of course with an empty profile)

How am I supposed to "repair" what seems to be a broken profile ?

Ubuntu :: Getting Thunderbird To Open Links With Chromium?

Jan 19, 2011

I'm having trouble getting Thunderbird to open links using Chromium (chromium-browser).

The default browser is now set to chromium-browser in KDE system settings. I've also tweaked the Thunderbird config network.protocol-handler.app.http and https settings to use chromium-browser or /usr/bin/chromium-browser.

Despite this, Thunderbird keeps opening links in Firefox. I'm bewildered as to why.

One thought is possibly an old GNOME system setting (there are .gconf and .gnome2 directories in my home directory, though I no longer use GNOME or have it installed on my system). But I don't know and I would have thought the Thunderbird config would have overridden that in any case.

General :: How Do I Add Right Click Open With WINE

Jan 10, 2010

1. In windows, you can create batch files. I know Shell files are the equivalent of that in linux, but how do i create one?I tried creating a text document, typing echo Test, and saving it as .shell but it came up with a empty terminal.

2.How do i add the Right Click> Open With WINE, like there was in Ubuntu. I currently have to go through terminal and type Wine ProgramName, which i am fine with, but I want shortcuts (reason for asking about batches)

3. Finally, how do i add programs to the KDE Menu? I made a custom menu, but when i try and send a program to it, it works unless its a windows executable, which what i'm using is, how can i still add it?
The Program is Brutus AE2, and i want to add it the KDE with the command "Wine" so when you click it it launches a terminal, enters Wine BrutusA2.exe and runs?

4. Also, my search wont work. dunno

Ubuntu :: Right Mouse Click Freeze / When Right Mouse Button To Open Options Menu It Freezes And Does Not Open Menu?

Oct 14, 2010

just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.

Ubuntu :: Right Click Open As Administrator Does Not Work

Jan 28, 2011

Strange. After a recent update, I can no longer right click on a folder and open it as Administrator. I get this error message:

Unable to determine the program to run.

The item you selected cannot be open with administrator powers because the correct application cannot be determined.

I don't quite get this but why is it looking for a program to run? I only want to open a folder, not run a program. Anyway, I have done an uninstall and re-install of nautilus-gksu but that did not solve the problem. I have googled but no answers I could use.

Again, all I want to do is open a folder as Administrator so I can perform other operations that require root permission on files in that folder.
