bluefish default browser is galeon

Bug #348408 reported by marco.pallotta on 2009-03-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
bluefish (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: bluefish

In Bluefish 1.0.7 (Hardy Heron) if you try to press the button "view in browser" you will not see anything. In fact if you launch bluefish from cli you will see that the default browser is galeon but it's not installed by default in Ubuntu. You can fix this adding a new entry in "edit" -> "preferences" -> "external programs" -> "browser", typing a new label for firefox with the appropriate command (you can use the command "firefox -remote 'openURL(%s, new-window)' || firefox %s&") and then dragging it to the top of the list.
Now you can view your html projects inside firefox browser simply pressing the above button.

I think Ubuntu should include this entry (positioning it to the top of the browser list) by default as this is an usability bug.

The attached patch adds a Firefox entry in the list of viewers. Since it's placed as first on the list, it is the default. Patch tested and binaries available for karmic here:
