I dont know if I made it clear... but when you get that select app
question if you select thunar as the app and then select always use this
then all downloads open in their native apps, so downloading a zip opens
in fileroller, a video in totem and so on. Rather than having to tell it
over and over what you want to use.

If you accidentally set the app to a specific app like fileroller and
tell it to always use that (as I did) then it screws your downloads up
as it will try to open every single download regardless of file type in
that app, to fix it you need to go delete the mimeTypes.rdf file as
outlined in the link in my earlier post.

Hope that makes it more clear than my first post.
