2012-06-01-03-05-20-mozilla-central-firefox-15.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64 Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have an application chosen for a file type for clicking in the Downloads Panel. 2. Download a file. 3. Click an entry in the Downloads Panel. Actual results: There is some notice that a program is being started because of the click, then the program starts. Expected results: A program starts, quietly.

If I read this correctly, you're saying that a confirmation message appears before the program starts. This is expected for some file types, like executable files. Or is this a different issue?
Oops, sorry, I mixed actual and expected results up. It should be: Expected results: There is some notice that a program is being started because of the click, then the program starts. Actual results: A program starts, quietly.
There's already a preference for this, see "browser.download.manager.alertOnEXEOpen" in about:config. The default value is 'true', you will receive a warning when you start an executable. In that warning, you have a "don't ask" box to shut it off for the future. That would set the configuration value to 'false'.

Sorry, I still find unclear what's the bug about, comment 3 seems to explain the correct behavior, is not this what happens?
