Description Aaron Konstam 2007-02-05 20:39:02 UTC
Description of problem:The config option in firefox as supplied in the Fedora
installation is configured with the config option: is set to true. This means that
when you go to Preferences->Downloads->View & Edit Actions noone of the
associaton informaation between file types and application or plugin that
handles the file type can be seen. This makes the installation of appropriate
plugins much harder to do, especially since most peopple do not know about this
configurationn option. My suggestioonn is that firefox would be distributed in
Fedora with this config uration optiion set to false.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): and or

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.chnage the value of this config option
2.Look at the display in Dowvnload-> View&Edit
Actual results:
can't see  application and plugin assignments

Expected results:
Most people wold want to see them.

If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest
updates for this Fedora Core release, please file a bug report in the Mozilla
bugzilla located at in the "Firefox" product, "File
Handling" component.

Once you've filed your bug report upstream, if you paste the new bug URL here,
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized Mozilla bug tracker,
and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future

Setting status to "NEEDINFO", and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.

Thanks in advance.
