Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b4) Gecko/2008030318 Firefox/3.0b4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b4) Gecko/2008030318 Firefox/3.0b4

See below:

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the URL => Popup:
  You have chosen to open <filename>.pdf 
   which is a: Portable Document Format from: <url>
   What should Firefox do...?
   (*) Open with firefox3
   () Save File
2a. If you accept the "Open with firefox3" option, an error message appears.
  A screenshot of the two popups is attached (error1.png).
Alternative:
2b. Instead of accepting "firefox3", select "Other" from the list. in the file
   browser, immediately click "Cancel".
   => Now, the default is magically correct: /usr/bin/xpdf (default).
   See attached screenshot error2.png.
Actual Results:  
The first default "firefox3" is wrong and not functional at all.
After browsing for "Other" applications --- without selecting any ---, the correct default pdf handler is shown.

Expected Results:  
I expect to see the correct default application immediately (i.e. popup error2.png appearing immediately after step 1).
