After installing 1.2 I tried launching a project web page from boincmgr but nothing happened. That was not unexpected since I had discovered the same problem in 9.1 ubuntu.

Googleing, I read here that the problem might be wxLaunchDefaultBrowser, Boinc uses wxWidgets. I then tried the suggestion where /usr/share/mime-info/gnome-vfs.keys had to be edited and Epiphany replaced with the desired browser. IANE on linux. Unfortunately, that didnt apply since I was not in an email and clicking on a url. I then restored default-application-id to Epiphany, installed Epiphany and selected Epiphany as the default browser. That works, and if I click on any project link buttons in boincmgr it brings up Epiphany and I get to the web site. I just cant get firefox launched the same way.

Anyway, if anyone reading this knows how to get the boincmgr to launch firefox in Dotsch/UX please let me know.

thanks for looking

I saw this problem in the 1.2 beta tests, but have not found any solutions.
But your hints looks great. - I will investigate this problem.

Thanks!

I went and posted a comment at that bug site confirming the bug. Maybe one of the gnome maintainers can figure it out.
