I have this call to webapp-container in this .desktop file.

$ cat .local/share/applications/foo.desktop 
[Desktop Entry]
Name=web container
Exec=/usr/bin/webapp-container --enable-addressbar --enable-back-forward --webappUrlPatterns=/home/phablet/*/*/* /home/phablet/*/* /home/phablet/* /home/phablet/

This is the way I've found to open my local html files. It works fine until I follow a link to a PDF file. Then, I choose Document Viewer to open the PDF file, but it opens a dialog to choose a file to open instead. Sometimes it works right... Why?

    There is a bug in Document viewer, if you don't have Document viewer already open, files don't open from another app. Are you facing the same issue? – pomsky Dec 24 '16 at 7:24
  • You may be right, pomsky. Anyway, it does not always fail when still not running. – Jgrg.sdc Dec 24 '16 at 16:00
