Today I clicked a link on Facebook and a dialogue window gave me the message:
"The link needs to be opened with an application. Send to:
Upon examining the link, it had the format:
I've never seen a browser link with the "fb://" protocol before and certainly never heard of "AddressBookUrlForwarder".
So I did a finder search and came up with nothing. Then I did a Locate search from terminal and found:
So I open "/System/Library/CoreServices/" in finder and that app doesn't show up. But it's definitely there. Thinking it must have some extended attributes or ACL I do an "ls-lae@" in the coreservices directory and for all intents and purposes it appears to be a normal .app directory with no @ or + or anything special to hide it from the Finder.
What the heck is going on? What is this app? Why is it not showing up in Finder? What is an "fb://" protocol link?
I'm creeped out now.
Also, I'm using 10.8.4.
