Subject description: After download in Firefox: how to associate with ROX to open folder
 

By default ROX filer is not associated with opening files/folders from the Firefox download manager list.

That is, selecting a downloaded file and right clicking "Open containing folder" I am asked to associate the link with an application - a file manager in this case - Rox Filer. But where is its "executable" and how is it called?

If Firefox passes filenames the same way that SeaMonkey does, your next question might be: Why does rox report "File doesn't exist, or I can't access it: file:///tmp/"?

That's because the filename is passed as a URI beginning with "file://" which rox doesn't understand unless you use the -U option.

You could write a short wrapper script to handle that, or you can use the /usr/local/bin/xdg-open script, which is probably already in your Puppy.
