java Desktop class cannot be trusted for launching URLs

Reported by: Kevin Milner Owned by: Kevin Milner

The desktop class that we've been using to launch URLs in web browsers cannot be trusted on various linux distributions. For example, it doesn't work at all on Xubuntu. Maybe we can make a util class that tries Desktop first, then falls back to BrowserLaunch2 (which we used previously).
