Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0
Build ID: 20160824215626

Steps to reproduce:

When I click on any link that leads to downloading a file, a dialog is opened (depending on the browser configuration of course) that allows me to select which operation I want to perform with the downloaded file.I have two radio buttons allowing me to select either Open with... or Download. The Open with option is followed by a dropdown list of available applications.


Actual results:

When I click on the dropdown list of available applications I can change the application. However, to really use it, I can click once more to select the option Open with (when this is not the default).


Expected results:

Whenever I click on the dropdown list of available applications, I demonstrate my intentions to use some application to open the downloaded file with an application. So I would like the option Open with to be automatically selected whenever I click the dropdown list. For me not to have to click once more on the option. This one extra click is in vain.
