Description reuben_swartz 2012-12-04 21:19:51 UTC
I have a user that has been using Libreoffice in conjunction with MS office and after install noticed a strange behavior. When links to a website on the internet are created in a MS word document and then clicked in order to bring up the external page a libreoffice window appears with the usage dialog. Upon searching I found that Libreoffice had set itself up as the default handler for HTML files which also included the link that this users was trying to open upon restoring the URL handler in the system to a browser. Is there any reason that this is the out of box behavior?
