Firefox uses wrong file manager under KDE

If Firefox uses different from your KDE file manager, then there's a workaround for this. Just add the following to the
"~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list" file:
[Added Associations]
x-directory/normal=kde4-dolphin.desktop;kde4-kfmclient_dir.desktop;
inode/directory=kde4-dolphin.desktop;kde4-kfmclient_dir.desktop;kde4-gwenview.desktop;kde4-filelight.desktop;kde4-cervisia.desktop;

[Default Applications]
inode/directory=kde4-dolphin.desktop;kde4-kfmclient_dir.desktop;kde4-gwenview.desktop;kde4-filelight.desktop;kde4-cervisia.desktop;
x-directory/normal=kde4-dolphin.desktop;kde4-kfmclient_dir.desktop;
Create file/sections manually if they do not exist.

LPCXpresso IDE + libxul.so problem

If during LPCXpresso IDE startup you are getting this (or something else related to XULrunner):
# Problematic frame:
# C  [libxul.so+0xda3c0f]
then add the following option to your "lpcxpresso.ini" (/path/to/lpcxpresso_dir/lpcxpresso/lpcxpresso.ini):
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=/dev/null
Add that option to "lpcxpresso.ini". If you are running LPCXpresso IDE from command line, passing mentioned option as a command-line parameter may not work.
