    Firefox "Launch Application" window

    Ubunteros,

    Would anyone happen to know how applications are removed from the "Launch application" window in Firefox?

    Pic is attached as reference.

    Thank you!

    Not sure
    You can tr by right click the selection and see for delete or remove option

    Thanks folks!

    The right click idea was the most intuitive to try first but since that didn't work I asked the "how to question".

    Regardless, the "tools>addons>plugins" may or may not work. I don't know?

    I want to remove Sopcast from the launch application menu and haven't been able to determine how its done.

    I DO NOT WANT TO UNINSTALL THE PROGRAM!

    Thanks!

    Thanks forestpiskie. I gave it a go but no luck. Although the info is only a year old it seems things are out of place and not including the information in specifically referenced files.

    I'd suspect that lovinglinux has some firefox search going on and is likely to pitch in at some point.

    That said I appear to have the mimetype.rdf file in my .mozilla/firefox/stupidname.default folder

    .mozilla/firefox/gmhqg0qg.default/mimeTypes.rdf

    Hi,

    I attached a pic and as you can see none of the programs found in Launch Application are in the .rdf file I have.

    Kinda strange.....

    OIC - thought you meant you didn't have the file.

    I've no idea then - I just had a search as it intrigued me ...

    Indeed

    The mimetype.rdf is indeed the file you need to delete. However you need to close Firefox first.

    Close Firefox and try this:

    Code:
    rm -f ~/.mozilla/firefox/**/mimeTypes.rdf
    BTW, your dialog looks very different than mine. Which version of Firefox you are using?
