Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4

When I download a file in Firefox on Windows Vista Beta 2 and select "Open in Containg Folder" in the downlaod manager, the software launches the file rather than opening the folder.  This happens with all file types and in all instances.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download a file.
2.Right click and select "open in containing folder".


Actual Results:  
The file launched, as if I had clicked open.

Expected Results:  
The folder should have opened which contains the file.

How have you confirmed this is actually a Firefox bug, and not a Vista one? Testing a beta product on a beta product and all that ;)

I guess I have no way of knowing.  It may be a Vista bug, but it may just as easily be a different way Vista handles this sort of request which will neccesitate a code change for Firefox in the future.
