This happens because of two reasons:
1. The file panels do not use metadata information because it
is really slow to use it on big directories or NFS-mounted
2. Only desktop icons know how to open URLs.
The former is more important. Even if you enable customization of
icons in the file panels (from the preferences dialog), they won't
know how to open URLs.
This inconsistency is hard to fix at this point :-(
