This is a proposed Change for Fedora Linux.
This document represents a proposed Change. As part of the Changes process, proposals are publicly announced in order to receive community feedback. This proposal will only be implemented if approved by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee.
Recent Firefox desktop file (firefox.desktop) does not comply with DBus/Gnome search provider rules thus Firefox can’t provide DBus Gnome search service.
We should change Firefox desktop file from firefox.desktop to org.mozilla.firefox.desktop.
Firefox needs to provide desktop file in expected format to pair DBus service and Gnome search service together to make Gnome search service work.
We’ll fix already broken feature.
- Proposal owners:
Desktop file name is changed in Firefox 121.0.
- Other developers:
Fedora Workstation needs update Firefox desktop name (hardcoded in gnome-shell) to correctly place Firefox to Gnome taskbar as default application.
- Release engineering: #Releng issue number
No need to coordinate with rel-eng.
Policies and guidelines: N/A (not needed for this Change)
Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)
Alignment with Community Initiatives:
Should not impact.
- Open Firefox 2) Type something to Gnome search 3) It works
Test also KDE/Plasma it doesn’t crash (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2017123)
Enabled Gnome shell search provider for Firefox.
- Revert desktop file name change in Firefox package.
- Blocks release? No
