Evince Doesn't open URL links (Ubuntu 12.04)

After upgrading my ubuntu from 10.04 to 12.04, the evince cannot open url links in either firefox or chrome. This seems to be a bug, see:

To fix this, adding the following to /etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/ubuntu-helpers:

/usr/lib/chromium-browser/chromium-browser-sandbox PUxr,
/opt/google/chrome/chrome-sandbox PUxr,
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome Pixr,
/opt/google/chrome/chrome Pixr,
/opt/google/chrome/lib*.so{,.*} m,

Then do

sudo apparmor_parser -r -W -T /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.evince

After doing this, when I click a href in evince, they can be successfully directed to chrome and open the correct page. lol
