User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032620 Firefox/3.0b5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032620 Firefox/3.0b5 When I download .torrent type file, sometimes Firefox opens 'What should firefox do with this file?' window even if I have checked 'Do this automatically for files like this from now on' box. And by 'open with' radio button there is only 'browse' button. But when i click OK then it downloads and opens like it should. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: No special steps. Just when i download these files a lot sometimes it opens the window, sometimes not. Actual Results: Sometimes it opens the window. Expected Results: It shouldn't have opened the window and simply downloaded and opened the file with specified program.
Such torrent files are often served up with content-disposition:attachment which means the browser has to ask what to do with the file. Unfortunately, firefox has a bug where it erroneously shows the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on", even tho firefox can't honour the setting. So this is probably a dupe of bug 285976.
