From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523 BuildID: Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 3 I have been trying to use Hotline 1.8.5 client to download files off the web. I go to www.hlsearch.com to search for file to download off Hotline. I have setup the helper so that when I click on a file or server to connect to using the Hotline client software. A example of a link you click on www.hlsearch.com after searching for a file or server is as follows "hotline:192.168.0.0.1" I have set the mime type to "hotline:" and for it to open Hotline Client. It works, it opens the server connection in Hotline Client but Mozilla choses to open Hotline Client (Which is a Carbon application) in Classic. Once classic boots it works fine. But I want Hotline to open in Mac OS X not Classic. This application works fine in Mac OS X. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Setup the Helper Application in the Prefs. by setting the mime type of the Helper to "hotline:" with out quotes and set it up to open in the Hotline Client 1.8.5 software (Only 1.8.5 because 1.8.5 works in Mac OS X) 2.Go to www.hlsearch.com and click on hotline 3.Click on server search or file search (which ever you perfer both will have the same outcome) 4.If in file search find a file of your choice. or if you are in server search click on any server name listed and it will launch Hotline in Classic, not in Mac OS X 5.If you chose to search for a file click on the server name with the file that you search for and it will launch Hotline in Classic, not in Mac OS X. Actual Results: It launches Hotline or even possibly every Carbon app in Classic, not in Mac OS X like it is supposed to. Expected Results: It should launch the Carbon Helper application in Mac OS X, not in Mac OS 9
Erik, can you still reproduce this problem using a recent nightly build? Carbon applications have a checkbox in their Get Info window about whether to open as Carbon or Classic applications. Is that set correctly?

Summary: Problem with Helper Applications → Mozilla opens helper application as Classic, rather than Carbon, application
ccing some people who may know what this is all about (and whether it's even a problem in the new Mach-O world).
We're using an OS call to launch the helper app so if it's being launched in Classic I don't think it's us. Besides what Greg asks, the reporter should verify there aren't multiple copies of the app on the hard drive.
Launch Services does have a flag to say if you want to launch the classic or Carbon version of an app, IIRC.
Yes... and what are you supposed to do with that flag?
We always set them to the defaults (open, async) and AFAIK the only change we'll make to that is add the kLSLaunchDontSwitch flag so we aren't asking for the Classic app, that's what LaunchServices/Internet Config is telling us is the helper.
So this is a change to nsLocalFileMac, basically? Can someone who has a mac and can test actually take this, then? ;)
Erik Brakvatne, can you still reproduce this problem using a current nightly build?
no other reports of this problem in past 2 years.
