Summary0015113: Firefox is unable to determine how to open Word documents
DescriptionAccessing a Word document in Firefox 60.1.0-5.el6 results in a dialog with:

   You have chosen to open:
   which is: Word 2007 document (4.0 KB)
   What should Firefox do with this file?
   Open with LibreOffice Writer (default)

Doing the same thing with Firefox 60.1.0-6.el6 gives:

   You have chosen to open:
   which is: DOCX file (4.0 KB)
   What should Firefox do with this file?
   Open with Browse...

Selecting 'Browse...' results in a dialog which tells me there are no applications capable of opening 'application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document type' files.
TagsNo tags attached.
