[Karmic] apturl does not work out-of-the-box

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubufox

In Karmic's Firefox (K/X/Ubuntu 9.10), the apturl links don't work out-of-the-box.

Very boring for beginners, as the community wiki (English and French, I don't know for others) use plenty of APTURL links, and so does the new Getdeb website.

I remember it was working out-of-the-box with Ubuntu 8.04 and 9.04.

Ubuntu 10.04.1 is also concerned.

I'm sorry, i was wrong.
A windows raises when clicking on a apt:// link, asking with which programm it should be opened.
Choose apturl and it works.
Anyway i feel this config should have be made during the installation of firefox => that is out of the box for me ;)

I agree with Raps. The window asking to select APTURL is unnecessary.
