Hi, i'm having a problem with Firefox 55, that was working perfectly on firefox 53 on Linux. This problem does not reproduces on Windows, i mean, on windows custom url schemas are working correctly with Firefox 55. The problem is as follow, We have this .desktop registered application: cat /usr/share/applications/UDSClient.desktop [Desktop Entry] Name=UDSClient Comment=UDS Helper Keywords=uds;client;vdi; Exec=/usr/lib/UDSClient/UDSClient.py %u Icon=help-browser StartupNotify=true Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Utility; MimeType=x-scheme-handler/uds;x-scheme-handler/udss;
As you can see, this registers an schema handler on Linux Platform. On Firefox 53 this was working correctly, on google chrome, chromium, etc... works fine. In Windows, the registered protocol handler (in the windows register, not using the .desktop file) works, xdg-open with this kind of schema works but with firefox 55 this has stopped working. We only get that the protocol is not recognized and that we should probably install a program that recognizes it.
Thanks for your help,
