firefox3{,.5} and external apps for various mime types

   firefox 2 used to work out what external application to offer to 
launch for a given mime type (eg openoffice for application/msword) 
using the information in /usr/pkg/share/applications/ via a call to a 
function in a dynamically loaded (if it exists).

In firefox3 and firefox3.5 this doesn't happen.  As far as I can see 
its now trying to do the same thing via D-Bus calls but I don't speak 
D-Bus well enough to work out what its actually trying to do and see 
why its failing.

So is this working for anyone?  Any clues on how to track this down?
