User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Netscape/7.1

I have noticed that even with my preferences properly set for "Helper
Applications", I still get a prompt when clicking on a link for a file of type
ZIP.  The first time I saw the dialog, I unchecked the option "Always show this
dialog before handling files of this type."  Every subsequent download of a zip
file shows the same dialog.

The MIME type displayed as sent by the server is:  application/x-zip-compressed

This happens everywhere including ZIP files on the Mozilla FTP site and
SourceForge to name a couple.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:




Expected Results:  
I expected the download dialog to open instead of being asked how to deal with
this MIME type which exists in my settings.

To assist with this issue, I have included the section of mimeTypes.rdf which
relates to the MIME type 'application/x-zip-compressed'
