The 'application/pgp-keys' MIME type has bad application associations
.key files are associated with
gedit in the browser, and Archive Manager in GNOME. Because of the former, the '
Importing an OpenPGP key from a website' scenario is broken in Tails/Jessie since it expects the browser to want to open
.key files with "Import Key".
Update the rest of torified_browsing.feature's images.
... for Debian Jessie. Now all scenarios except 'Importing an OpenPGP
key from a website' passes, due to
Manually associate application/pgp-keys with Seahorse's "Import Key" application.
I can't reproduce this in my Tor Browser on current sid, so I don't see
where I could report it. Hence added a "XXX: Stretch" so that we check
if we can remove it next time we upgrade to a new Debian release.

Probably not relevant, but on current sid I see:
$ mimetype wiki/src/tails-signing.key wiki/src/tails-signing.key: application/x-iwork-keynote-sffkey $ mimetype --debug -a wiki/src/tails-signing.key > Data dirs are: /home/intrigeri/.local/share, /usr/share/gnome, /usr/local/share, /usr/share > Checking inode type > Checking globs for basename 'tails-signing.key' > Checking for extension '.key' wiki/src/tails-signing.key: application/x-iwork-keynote-sffkey > Checking all magic rules > Value "-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----" at offset 36 matches at /usr/share/mime/magic line 337 wiki/src/tails-signing.key: application/pgp-keys > File exists, trying default method wiki/src/tails-signing.key: text/plain
And on current feature/jessie, the file manager says that
/usr/share/doc/tails/website/tails-signing.key is "Apple Keynote 5 presentation (application/x-iwork-keynote-sffkey)", which indeed opens with Archive Manager by default.
So I'm not sure it's a problem of associating
application/pgp-keys with a particular application, it seems rather like it's a matter of detecting the correct MIME type to start with, no?

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xdg/shared-mime-info/tree/NEWS says that shared-mime-info 1.3 "Add Apple Keynote 5 mime-type". On Tails 1.7 we're installing 1.3-1~bpo70+1, and in the file manager I see the same results as those reported above on Jessie. I think this confirms that I was on the wrong track: the browser is passed the correct MIME type, but indeed the association between that MIME type and Seahorse is broken on Jessie. anonym was right :)

- Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress
- % Done changed from 0 to 20
The application we want in
/usr/share/applications/seahorse-pgp-keys.desktop and on current feature/jessie:
$ grep pgp-keys /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache application/pgp-keys=seahorse-pgp-keys.desktop;
... which sounds right.
Anyway, manually adding
/etc/gnome/defaults.list solves the problem. I'm going to do that and spend some reasonable amount of time reproducing / reporting the problem where it should be.
