#8805 closed bug (fixed)

FileType attempts to use a folder as the preferred application.

This bug applies to both the Tracker Add-on and the standalone preflet.

In Tracker, right click a file and open it with the FileType add-on. Press the "Select" button for "Preferred application". At least on hrev44418, the file listing will be activated by default. Use keyboard navigation to select a folder. Press Enter. This results in an info alert of "Could not retrieve application signature"

The expected behavior is to enter that folder and not attempt to use it as the preferred application. For comparison, StyledEdit's File-->Open panel works as expected.

Reopened, as the applied patch does introduce a number of regressions: the file panel is used for other things, too, and there, directories are required (ie. "open" and "same as").
