Steps to reproduce:
0. Set up Chromium/Firefox to prompt when it’s not the default browser (e.g. for FF, set browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser to true)
1. Create/save a file with .html extension
2. From Nautilus, open the file’s properties
3. On the Open With tab, select gedit as default application to open html files with
4. In System settings, select Details and verify that in Default Applications the Default Web Browser hasn’t changed
5. Start Chromium/Firefox
The browser thinks it’s not the default browser anymore and prompts you to set it as such.
What I expect to happen:
For the browser to know it still is the default browser and not ask about it.
Has this happened before:
Doesn’t seem to apply to Lucid, so the bug occurs somewhere between 10.04…12.04.
I’ll attach a screenshot demonstrating the above result.
I’m not at all sure whether I filed this against the right package, feel free to correct it.
This is apparently caused by something not in Chromium itself: it’s not reproducible in a VM running Oneiric, with 17.0.963.26 from ppa:chromium-daily/dev nor with Chrome 17.0.96356. It *is* reproducible in Precise with the latter too, but not reproducible with Firefox nor Epiphany. In Precise with Chromium 17, it’s reproducible with a temporary profile and a guest login also.
Then I would rephrase this into a bug report as follows: currently, the toolbar navigational buttons (previous, next) are positioned to the right from the location bar. This is inconsistent with what most users probably expect, which is the way they are located in a web browser.
The three web browsers I currently have installed on this system position these elements as follows:
- Epiphany 3.2.1: previous, next buttons above the left end of location bar.
- Firefox 9.0: previous, next buttons to the left from location bar.
- Chromium 15.0.874.121: previous, next buttons to the left from location bar.
From my personal anecdotal evidence, with this background, I say suddenly finding the navigational buttons from the right end of the location bar in one app is undly arduous. Thus this bug’s title should be: Move the navigation buttons to the left of the location bar.
(IIRC this was also how the buttons were back in Gnome 2. If there was some usability reasoning behind moving them to the right, I’d be interested in reading about it.)
a) Minulta kesti pitkään tottua Firefoxin osoitepalkin logiikkaan sen jälkeen, kun se vaihtui (olikohan versioiden 2 ja 3 välillä, vai jo peräti 1.5:n ja 2:n). Nyt sitten kun olen vaihtanut Chromiumiin, en millään totu sen logiikkaan, vaan törmään koko ajan siihen, ettei odottamani osoite ilmesty osoitepalkin tarjokkaisiin antamistani kirjainvihjeistä. On hassusti nurinkurista, mikäli todella on niin kuin epäilen, että Chromiumin logiikka muistuttaa enemmän Firefoxin aiempaa kuin nykyistä logiikkaa.
I marked the answer above as unhelpful, because the issue raised in the title of the question went unanswered by it: English not showing up in the preferences, i.e. the language selection dropdown menu didn’t have English. I was able to fix this by unselecting Google and Google Services from HTTPS Everywhere’s settings, but then again wasn’t able to reproduce it after re-enabling them, so I’m still not sure whether HTTPS Everywhere was the root cause.
For me, the same symptoms were caused by apparent incompatibility btw Greasemonkey and another add-on, autoHideStatusbar, so you could try disabling other add-ons.
I just tried this in Shiretoko (4.0b2pre) and it’s fixed there, i.e. the plus sign is preserved. So you probably deduced the right culprit. :)
As the summary says: when a user opens a new, empty tab, it opens next to the rightmost of tabs currently open in the browser. This is inconsistent with the way links in new tabs are opened, which is to have them next to the currently active tab.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open multiple tabs in the browser.
2. Select the leftmost tab.
3. Press Ctrl + T.
Have a new, empty tab next to the leftmost tab.
The new, empty tab opens next to the rightmost tab.
