How to fix Firefox “Show Downloads Folder” after installing Git Cola
After installing Git Cola specially in Arch Linux whenever you press the "Show Downloads Folder" in Downloads Library or "Open Containing Folder" in Downloads popup** Git Cola** pops up instead of the default file manager. This happens because of MIME edits that Git Cola does whole installing. Anyway is very easy to fix, just follow these steps
- Open up Terminal and type
sudo nano /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache
- Search for [c]inode/directory[/c]
- Remove [c]git-cola-folder-handler.desktop;[/c] from [c]inode/directory=git-cola-folder-handler.desktop;Thunar-folder-handler.desktop;[/c]
- [c]Thunar-folder-handler.desktop;[/c] this part means that from now on directories will open using Thunar. Yours might be different so just remove the [c]git-cola-folder-handler.desktop;[/c] part and you will be fine.
