On Linux, Mozilla opens ghostview INSIDE the browser (with very limited functionality) instead of spawning a external ghostview browser. (I don't know who thought this was a good idea; it really isn't). I know how to tell Mozilla in Windows not to open pdf files inside the browser (again, a REALLY bad idea), but I can't figure out how to do the same on Linux. I searched both Bugzilla (yes, this really is a bug) and google with no luck. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Click on any link that points to a .ps file 2. 3. Actual Results: Opens ghostview inside of browser Expected Results: Spawns a separate ghostview vierer.
testing a page i found on google at random: http://web.mit.edu/Saltzer/www/publications/endtoend/endtoend.ps Mozilla prompts for action. If I select the default application, it opens in gv (separate gv window) WFM. Trunk CVS, 20040406 http://web.mit.edu/Saltzer/www/publications/endtoend/endtoend.ps Are you using "Plugger"?
you have plugger (or mozplugger) installed. It's configured (by default) to handle .ps files and is doing exactly what it thinks it's supposed to be doing. If you don't want that, disable it in /etc/plugger or /etc/mozplugger (or wherever the config files is located on your system). marking INVALID -- this is not a Mozilla bug
