Links opened from TweetDeck try to load from the cache
Running Firefox 3.6.4 on KDE 3.5 on openSUSE Linux 11.0, running Adobe AIR TweetDeck v0.33.4. When I click on a shortened URL link in TweetDeck, such as to go to a YouTube video link, Firefox attempts to open the link from the cache, not go directly to the Web page. Result is something like: file:///var/tmp/kdecache-rhack/krun/30908.0.bBUGz0. So I get the YouTube or other Web page from the cache, not from the Web site. I'm not entirely sure if this a Firefox bug or a TweetDeck bug.
Not sure how often

My guess is that the URL is not being passed to Firefox correctly. Is there another browser you can test this with?
Just tested it with Opera by resetting the KDE preferences to use Opera instead of Firefox. Works fine in Opera. Definitely a Firefox problem.
I don't know. Maybe a Linux user can help.
