WHY sooo ugly fire\s*h-i/t on kde integration?

Got arch/Kde 4.8 and FF sucks!

why not ff design for kde / qt? like OPERA!

I have to say that ff did a lousy job on kde...so any help/hint?

In general, using Oxygen-Gtk is a good start to fixing the appearance of Firefox - it will do a good part of the job for you. It also helps to use a distribution which bundles in the Firefox KDE extensions component - which changes things such as the file picker, etc.

Not sure what you mean. There's a Oxygen Firefox theme: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=117962

There's also been attempts to make a Qt port of Firefox: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Qt

@ goro

I have deleted your post 'cos it has absolutely nothing to do with firefox integration.

Please start your own thread or use google.

Thanks.

firefox-kde-support package isnt' working since upgrade to Kubuntu 12.04. Now I can't open a file or a folder from the download dialog window.
Any ideas?
Thanks...

PS: I've tried to uninstall it to install it again, but now the package is gone and can't be installed" :'(

I'm using Debian testing with KDE and didn't install any special packages for KDE/Firefox integration, besides general oxygen-gtk theme. I can open containing folder from the Download dialog (and it launches Dolphin). File opens as well (though it launches Dolphin first which isn't ideal but works).

In my Firefox preferences I have this setting though:

In Edit > Preferences > Applications
for content type "file" associated application is dolphin.

Hi, if I were you I'd try www.kubuntuforums.net - they'll know what is right for your distro :)

Most of those settings and protocol associations can be set up manually though.

I've found a workaround at http://matthieu.yiptong.ca/2012/04/12/fix-file-open-and-open-containing-folder-on-kdekubuntu-12-04/%20!

Code: Select all
Here is a workaround for the Firefox problem from Canonical support:

1) stop firefox
2) rm ~/.mozilla/firefox//mimeTypes.rdf
3) start firefox
4) download a file
5) open it from the downloads menu and choose the application. Browse to /usr/bin /xdg-open. then check to remember your choice

Now both open and open containing folder should work. You can then change the preferred programs through kde's file associations settings.
NOTE: I have confirmed that this solution works. It's a workaround, but in some ways it is an improvement over the original Firefox approach (for KDE users).


Thanks for the answers.

There is no need to delete the whole mimeTypes.rdf - it's too radical since it deletes lot's of settings besides the one in question. Just edit the appropriate line in there for the "file" mime type. Or as I wrote above, you can do it through Firefox preferences UI.
