Firefox not opening hyperlinks in run dialogue/programs

Post by ldlx » Tue Sep 17, 2019 10:04 am

... this is caused by the entries in
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ftp\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\https\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\firefox.exe\shell\open\command

With FrontMotion Firefox MSI v69.0 the registry value is

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -requestPending -osint -url "%1"
Leaving out either "-requestPending" or "-osint" will repair this behaviour. The Installer from Mozilla doesn't have the parameter "-requestPending" which let Firefox wait for a following DDE call. The ddeexec section in each registry key is empty when using Mozilla's installer - so DDE calls may be deprecated?

Edit: it is easy to generate a transform file for the MSI with Orca/SuperOrca/Insted, just change

Code: Select all

RegKey020
RegKey028
RegKey071
RegKey076
RegKey081
RegKey086
RegKey091
RegKey096
RegKey033
Kind regards, ldlx

That fixed it for us.

Thanks!

I don't know if DraconPern is reading new entries in the forum, but the wrong registry keys are still in the 69.0.1 MSI... so fixing it with a transform file is still necessary.
