Sub_title: Launch what application?
 

Under Windows, Firefox always knows how to open the containing folder a file was downloaded to. Why not under Lucid 528? Or does this apply to ALL linux versions?

What do I tell it to use?

Not sure I understand the problem/question.

Are you are having trouble clicking on an html extension file, and having it launch Firefox?

In the Firefox Downloads window (CTRL+SHIFT+Y) listing downloaded files, right-clicking a file and choosing Open Containing Folder. Firefox asks what application to open it with.

I'm having trouble getting ROX-Filer to work with this, using network.protocol-handler.app.file (string) /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX-Filer I'm getting an error window

File doesn't exist, or I can't access it: file:///root/my-documents/My%20Pictures/


What's wrong? The path exists!

Use the string Semme gave you, not the direct one to ROX-Filer:

I guess additionally you have to modify /usr/local/bin/rox script.
If there's:
Code:
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun "$@"

then modify it to:
Code:
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun "${@#*file://}"

as it is in newer Puppies with later ROX.

HTH
Greetings!
