User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.2pre) Gecko/20061023 SUSE/2.0.0.1-0.1 Firefox/2.0.0.2pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.2pre) Gecko/20061023 SUSE/2.0.0.1-0.1 Firefox/2.0.0.2pre

The "Open with" dialog that you get when selecting a link. Will change between different opening in the same session. Also it will happend even after I have selected "Do this automatically for files like this from now on".
In my specific case it's a link to a tiff file that generate this behaviour.
I.E it either select the "display (default)" or opening with Gimp.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a page witch has a link to an tiff file (you should also has gimp installed)
2. When selecting the link the "Open with" is displayed. If no associations has been given in Preferences. It suggest "display", now press cancel. And click the link again, will give you Gimp instead (you might need to cancel a few time, for me it was random. But usually 50% of the cases).
3. Now if the "display (default)" is presented, check the box "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". The image is correctly displayed via Firefox, but close the window. And repeat a few times, and suddenly the Gimp is selected instead.

In my preferences I can see that TIF is associated with display.
Actual Results:  
The opening of a file with extension tiff will sometimes be open with an application I have not selected.

Expected Results:  
The display should open the tiff file.
