Upgraded from 5.4 to 6.1.

I have a Windows 10 VM with virtio drivers and Spice.
In Proxmox 5.4, regardless of the video driver selected for the VM (default or Spice qxl), default "console" was always noVNC. If I wanted SPICE console I had to select it manually in the drop off console menu. But anyways, both worked well. If selecting SPICE, Firefox browser asked how to open the file, but Firefox detected virt-viewer as default application to use.

Now in Proxmox 6.1, the "console" option seems to auto-detect the selected video driver for the VM. Problem is, SPICE no longer works.
I select open with SPICE, a message from Firefox browser pops asking what to do with the file, but no longer detects virt-viewer as default app to use. I can just save the file, but cannot auto-open it with Firefox browser.

I'm using openSUSE 15.1 as client PC.
Any help?

what about on other browsers? (or different versions of firefox)

does it auto-open with those, or not at all?

Thanks for responding.
I already figured it out: it was an issue with the installed virt-viewer version. I just updated the package and now it works.

Thanks very much sir.
