From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0) BuildID: 20020109 While running the Preferences test suite, I entered a "New Type" in Helper Apps and was allowed to enter nothing in the MIME Type field. This put an entry into the File Types list, but it didn't have a name and looked like a blank line. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. select Edit | Preferences 2. Choose Navigator -> Helper Apps 3. Click New Type... 4. enter data into the New Type dialog box, but leave MIME Type empty. Actual Results: Blank line appears in File Types list Expected Results: I expect that a MIME Type name to be entered, and if it's not, that you are prompted to enter one. I first saw this on OpenVMS, but then tested on a Linux system which had the same problem.
that's weird. a bug here was recently fixed, preventing entry of blank mimetypes. bill?

Well, I made it so you have to enter a mime type, but apparently didn't go so far as to force you to enter a non-blank mime type! Easily remedied.
