Subject: [libreoffice-marketing] Re: Mozilla Thunderbird file warnings

Le 2011-02-16 20:06, webmaster for Kracked Press Productions a écrit :

For some reason some of the ODT files now open up within
Mozilla FireFox 3.6.13 for Ubuntu. Never did this before for
OOo. But it did for LibreOffice 3.3.0.x

That is a nice feature sometimes, while other times is can be a headache.

Yes, but imagine, all of these years, Thunderbird has been offering this default 
for MSO. This seems to give the view that the .doc and .pdf files have 
established the norm, when we should be pushing for support for conventions. 
OpenDocument Format (ODF) support is crucial to our distro. We should try to get 
support for the ODF formats from as many places as possible. It will only help 
us. You can always remove these preferences if you like. Unfortunately, I don't 
believe that Thunderbird (Mozilla) would want to remove the .doc and .pdf 
formats from the default install, so we may as well push for ODF as well.



Hi :)

I think if you find one of those documents that opens in FireFox and 
right-click, choose "Properties" then you can set the default program as 
LibreOffice.  Hopefully there is only 1 sub-set of OpenDocuments that have this 
problem on your machine but if you find other documents opening in FireFox then 
you might have to repeat this 2 or 3 more times to catch them all.

LibreOffice is not a distro it is a suite.  Usually OpenSource projects of 
anything like this size are distros and the unusual way TDF formed is more usual 
amongst distros so it is easy to make the mistake.  It is difficult to think of 
a generic term that would cover Gimp, Firefox, Mozilla, the distros, small 
libraries, large organisations but i guess "project" is about the most generic?

Tom :)
