When opening the "Manage Download Actions" panel, there is no application listed for the handler of the specific mime type.  For this test, I used text/calendar mime types and the Windows Calendar application (running on Vista).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Firefox, browse to URL above and select any of those bugs.
2. Open the text/calendar attachment on the bug
3. Allow Firefox to open the file with Windows Calendar
4. Check the "Do this automatically from now on" checkbox
5. Go to Tools->Options, Content tab and click on "Manage..."
6. Note that the text/calendar mime handler is listed (ICS). Click on "Change Action"
7. Note that in the text box for "Open with default action" there is no text specifying the application.  It only contains an icon.

Actual Results:  
Only contains icon, no application name

Expected Results:  
It should contain the application name as well as the icon.

I also saw some odd issues where the "Do this automatically from now on" checkbox did not take the first time I saw it.  I had to click on several files and choose it before it began to work properly.  But I cannot recreate that scenario on a clean profile.

Similarly, on Mac OS X, the text/calendar attachment states that it will open in Apple but once I go look in the "Manage Download" window, it shows that ICS files will only be saved to the computer, not opened with the iCAL application.

There seems to be lots of linkages between the back-end and front-end busted here.
