Firefox does not handle osu:// schema correctly

I have installed a game program that accept and handling such a `osu://` schema. URLs with such schema is provided in its site. By clicking it, browser would call up the game program (according the schema handler setting), then pass the URL to it.

This mechanism works fine, except it is a side-effect.

By clicking the osu:// URL (such like: osu://b/355852), Firefox would open a new window, but weirdly covered it into a http:// URL (like this: http://osu//b/355852 , which I copies from the new-tab's urlbar.).

This problem is not a big-up, but truely ... odd (because it appears only on this schema, the others, like ftp, ssh, irc..., work fine). So that I am interested in it. Is any clues to why this happens?


Hints:

  • Schema handler is registered fine, because game program catch the URL correctly.
  • Using FF Developer Edition 51.0a2 (2016-11-09) (64 bits), on Windows 7
  • Tried disabling all add-ons, problem remains.

I'm having the same problem as this old support question. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/814083

Issue is that the answer seems outdated and when I search in the forums and MDN, if feel like I'm entering a rabbit hole.

Basically, I have Kubuntu 16.10 and Fire Fox 51.0a2 (2016-11-14) (64-bit). The KDE system theme is a dark one. Now what happens is that all my text boxes, in FF, are also dark. This makes it very hard to input text as most of the time the text is black or grey.

I looked into adding a userContent.css file in the chrome directory of my profile. Folder is not there, so I created it and the css file: input, textarea, select {

  color:#555 !important;
  background-color:#fff !important;
  -moz-appearance: none !important;

}

Found a chrome folder under /usr/lib/firefox/browser and copied the css file there. None of these did anything even after closing and reopening FF.

I do have "Use system colors" unchecked under Color Preferences...
