            Bug ID: 344649
           Summary: Clicking link to open external browser opens browser,
                    but fails to load link
           Product: akregator
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: kadjette at yahoo.com

When viewing the chosen article in the preview pane, right clicking on the
"Complete Story" link, and selecting "Open Link in External Browser," the
browser opens but fails to load the link in the browser. Instead a new browser
window opens to my default home page with no further action. The same behavior
occurs when right clicking on the article title and selecting "Open Link in
External Browser". Same results from multiple articles.

My default browser is Firefox. I wonder if a recent Firefox update broke this

Clicking on the link and opening the article in the internal browser appears to
work for most articles.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on "Complete story" link on article preview or Right click on
article title
2. Select "Open in External Browser"

Actual Results:  
Akregator opens default browser to default home page but does not pass the link
to the browser. A new browser window is opened at each attempt. An already open
browser is ignored.

Expected Results:  
Akregator should pass the link to the browser in a new tab if the browser is
already open or open a new browser window and load the link.

Firefox version 36.0
Akregator 4.13.3
Xubuntu 14.04 (trusty)
Kernel 3.13.0-46-generic
