Comment 137 for bug 209520

IMHO, this whole smb:// access from nautilus is really not that great. It is fine for copying files but most applications are not compatible with this URL, so you can not drop the files with smb:// access into an application. Another example, if you using Google web mail to compose an e-mail and want to attach a file, you can browse to the smb:// share and click on the file URL but then Firefox does not translate the smb:// URL so it become useless!!

I might as well just use smbmount and mount it to a mount point. I really hope to see Nautilus/Ubuntu improve in this area.
