"What should Mozilla do with this file?" dialog doesn't remember preference
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507 When trying to open a file via a link on a web page, said dialog pops up. After accepting my preference and opening the file, if I open a file of the same type, the window still appears. This behaviour occurs even if I uncheck "Always show this dialog before handling files of this type". Very annoying. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to soma.fm. 2. Try to open a playlist file link. 3. Select "Open it with the default application" (winamp in my case) 4. Uncheck "Always show this dialog before handling files of this type" 5. Repeat from step one. Ad infinitum. Until it is fixed, anyway. Actual Results: The steps went exactly as described. Expected Results: Mozilla should have saved my preference from this dialog and not asked me again.
I thought Mozilla might not save such a preference when using the default profile, so I created a new one. No change. Same problem.

this works for me with "Groove salad" and "secret agent". are you using another playlist? Also, would it be possible for you to attach the file mimeTypes.rdf to this bug (using http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?bugid=207076&action=enter)? You can find that file in your profile, see http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.4/installation.html#files_profiles for the location
The problem persists in: Mozilla 1.4 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Any playlist I encounter anywhere does produce the same results. I have attached the requested file. Thanks.
sorry for replying so late :( Thanks for attaching the file, Tony - it shows that Mozilla thinks that the mimetype is "audio/scpls", while it really is "audio/x-scpls"; so your setting is saved under the former mimetype but looked up with the latter. This is a known problem, and was fixed today, nightly builds from tomorrow or later and 1.5beta or later should have this fixed. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 184971 ***
