    Ubuntu 18.04.1 Firefox Quantum vmware-view URLs not working

    yaleman Lurker

      I've (seemingly) successfully installed the Horizon view client, but when attempting to connect I'm getting an error in firefox - basically the "vmware-view" protocol handler isn't install(ing)?


      Anyone got any ideas? I've restarted, uninstalled/reinstalled etc, with no luck.


      The URL starts with "vmware-view://"


      Error message:


      The address wasn’t understood


      Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (vmware-view) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.


          You might need to install other software to open this address.
