Firefox "open containing folder" defaults to Konqueror

Like the title suggest, I just want 2 change the default program from Konqueror. This is a fresh install of Fedora 11, wit latest updates, RPM Fusion enabled preinstall, Gnome & KDE, ect.

Only thing that annoys me is how KDE defaults itself over in the Gnome environment. like Kget and such. This is easy by changing the Preferred Application under System/Preferences. The rest I can just change while in Nautilus via properties/open with.

What I cant find is how 2 change the "Open containing folder" dialog under Firefox to Nautilus (or Dolphin if others choose that).

Opera doesnt have this problem but it would be nice to also bring up the answer so that its conveniently all answered in 1 place on the forums.

So is there any other safe way short of reinstalling KDE? I say this cause I noticed that when I have Gnome the primary Desktop environment and later install KDE, I dont get said problems.

Thanx 4 any assistance and my bad if I made this post a lil long. Figured I wouldnt be the only some1 interested later down the road.

Re: Firefox "open containing folder" defaults to Konqueror

Sorry for bumping such an old thread, but I'm having this exact problem (Open Containing Folder in Firefox uses gwenview instead of nautilus) on Firefox 15 x64 and the latest official version of Firefox (5.0-2.fc15).

Hmm, it appears that the problem is not limited to Firefox - when plugging in a USB drive it automatically opens it with gwenview instead of nautilus as well. So somehow gwenview has become the default application associated with folders.

EDIT: Fixed it - just needed to change the relevant line in "~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list".
