Ultimate Edition and Firefox issue, SOLVED!!

Postby OlDrunk » Fri Jun 24, 2016 11:07 pm

Some system script is redirecting all external browser new taps/windows to ultimateedition.info, so if I use SABnzbd or click on a link a friend sends me in skype or Steam chat , same thing all new tabs/windows go to Ultimate Edition site, kinda of annoying to have to copy and paste every link into the address bar every time, if any one knows hows to disable this please share?

Thanks to any or all replies

I have seen this before and I believe somewhere in Ultimate Edition Knowlege base is the answer, but I believe it to be related to the mimeaps.list. Have a look here http://askubuntu.com/questions/317874/opening-email-links-to-appear-in-browser-not-working-right and let me us know if this gets you back on track...

Kinda back on track, doing some more reading and mineaps.list has been getting moved around since 12.04 so no luck yet finding a solution, running terminal search find / -type f -exec fgrep -l 'http://ultimateedition.info/' {} \; right now hoping that I'll find where that is nested and change it to %u so external link launches will work
**UPDATE**
Found it , /usr/share/applications/ubuntu-about.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=About Ultimate Edition
Comment=Learn more about Ultimate Edition
Exec=firefox http://ultimateedition.info/
Icon=distributor-logo
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;Application;Core;
StartupNotify=true
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-panel-2.0

Changed Exec=firefox http://ultimateedition.info/ to Exec=firefox %u
Tested and Every thing is right with the world again, Thanks for point in the right direction! Cheers!
