I have the problem that when I open some programs/documents in Gnome, the wrong application is launched to open these.
I think I already narrowed the problem, that everything that is called with
file:// will be launched with the wrong program (in my case keepassx). I remember that when everything starts, I wanted to start keepassx from my gnome-panel. Ubuntu asked me with what program it should be started. I wondered a little, since I used it already a lot, so I choosed keepassx from the list. But it seems that this has overriden the file-protocol handler.
Some situations where the wrong program is called: shortcuts in my gnome panel (personal folder - which should open nautilus, keepassx, some txt files), synapse (launcher like gnome-do) and firefox finished downloads.
How can I reset this setting to get everything back to normal?
