Firefox infinitely loops opening new tab
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3 When opening http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/modules/googlecalendar/ics.rtm I chose to open with Firefox and chose the 'do every time' option. This resulted in Firefox infinitely opening tabs. I was able to close Firefox so it's not a huge issue - it also wouldn't have occurred without the Redirect Remover extension though the potential is there for problems. Note that while this is unusual behaviour to select such options, I have had to do that exact behaviour for some image types to force Firefox to be the viewer. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a url with a file extension Firefox doesn't recognize (rtm by example) 2. Select 'Open File' and set to Firefox 3. Check the 'do this every time' option Actual Results: Firefox opened blank tabs infinitely Expected Results: Error: unable to open filetype .rtm (as it had already prompted with the download dialog, it shouldn't keep trying to download over and over)
