    Firefox 3.5 doesn't know which applications to use

    I am running Jaunty. I installed Firefox 3.5 (Shiretoko) from the Ubuntu repositories. It works fine except for the file associations. When I download a file, neither "open" nor "open containing folder" work. They both tell me to "choose an application", and I do not know how to do that.

    Is there a way to pull over the prior Firefox application associations?

    Thanks

    I have been searching Google and these forums and I cannot find a solution. I suspect I'm searching with the wrong terms (e.g. "applications" is too broad). Can anyone suggest a solution? I'm sure this has been solved - I just can't find the solution. Thanks.

    I have been having a quick look on the Mozilla support forum and as far as I can make out it has been disabled as a security measure, I might be wrong though.

    Thanks, but there is nothing that is disabled. It is simply that the settings are wrong. What I need to do is "choose an application" that will open locations (directories). I also need to fix the same issue for opening downloaded files. I need some help doing this. Thanks.

    There is not a single good native browser for Ubuntu (even wine is better). As bad as Firefox 3.0 sucks, I want to at least be able to run Firefox 3.5 without waiting until October.

    Firefox 3.5.2 (Shiretoko) totally sucks! I just removed it completely. I'm angry.

    Swiftweasel is good! No problems, faster than other builds and better than Swiftfox because I'm on AMD64 and Swiftweasel supports the proper flash on that platform.
