User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032620 Firefox/3.0b5

After selecting a custom application to open a file with, the choice is not remembered.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click an attachment in Gmail (.c in my case)
2. Open With -> Other -> Browse -> Select gvim.exe
3. File opens in Gvim
4. Repeat step 1
Actual Results:  
I was forced to repeat step 2 instead of selecting gvim from the dropdown list.

Expected Results:  
gvim should have been in the Open With dropdown

Possibly unrelated: the icon for the file did not show up correctly.
dupe of bug 236541 ?

Not sure when this was fixed, but this problem is not present on Firefox 57, at least not on either Windows or Fedora Linux.
