I am having strange problem, i think it is mime-type problem. I can not open file from firefox's download window. It shows an error.

enter image description here

It happens every time when i try to open file from firefox, from trash of unity panel, from stack of avant-window, 'open with folder' in firefox-download. How to fix this? I did not change any mime-type related file. I am using ubuntu 11.04 32 bit.

Do you have XCFE or KDE on your system? –  RolandiXor Sep 17 '11 at 18:04

Well I think we will never know the answer now... Should we close the question as we are trying to do clean up ( meta.askubuntu.com/questions/2651/ask-ubuntu-clean-up ) ? –  desgua Feb 25 '12 at 18:38
will you do it? then do. –  shantanu Feb 26 '12 at 2:20

Delete ~/.local/share/mime/mime.cache. This should fix it.

If it does not, then delete ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list.
