I've also tried application/x-nautilus-link (which, curiously, wasn't
in the VFS MIME type list by default), but it doesn't work either for
an RSS feed or for a URL icon on the desktop.  When I try "Open With"
using Default-Browser (i.e. gnome-moz-remote), I get

  "Default-Browser" can't open "/" because
  "Default-Browser" can't access files at "http"
  locations.  Would you like to choose another

This message appears no matter what combination of "Can open multiple
files" and "Can open from URI" I select in the VFS Edit Application

All the best,
