It works the second and subsequent times. This seems to be a regression, I do not remember having seen this is 1.3alpha. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start mailnews 2.double click on attachment in mail which should start without asking 3.watch the menu asking for 'start with application ...?' 4.do 2 and 3 for the next attachment 5.now be happy that it starts automatically Expected Results: should always start automatically if checkbox is not on. Probably an initialization problem.
