User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040209 Firebird/0.8.0+ (daihard: XFT+GTK2; optimized for P4/SSE-2) The Show link attached to a donwload entry in the Download Manager that brings up a folder window containing the file just downloaded does nothing on Linux. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download a file on Linux. 2. Open the Download Manager. 3. Click the Show link. Actual Results: Nothing. Expected Results: A file manager of some sort should open, within the directory that the file was downloaded to. This could be fixed by adding a File Manager selection dialog to the Download Manager section of Options->Downloads in Firefox which allows the user to select the application used to display the file. Firefox could then call the program with the directory path of the downloaded file and have them display the directory (xffm and Konqueror, for example, allow you to call them on the command-line with a directory path appended, and both will open in that directory). I'm starting this bug at Normal, because it makes the Show link work on Linux. This could also be an enhancement. This might also be related to bug 232138, "Show Folder button does not work in Tools->Options->Downloads->Download Folder", and it could ostensibly be fixed by this as well if Firefox gains the ability to call external file manager applications.
I feel like such an idiot. I just fixed my symlinks for my Firefox installation and now the Show link does work, but in an unexpected way - it spawns a new browser window to display the folder, instead of opening a new tab in the current window or opening a folder view via an external application, like on the Windows platform. While this functionality is nice, I still think the browser should use the window manager's filemanager application, so this enhancement bug is still somewhat relevant.
