Hi *,

   With this small patch applied on Firefox 3 source code, (patch to apply on xulrunner-1.9 package), there's no more need to "open with"  and no more problems with others Desktop environments like KDE or XFCE. 
   It's based (and so requires) a really small dependency : xdg-open (~5Kb of perl script) and provides a unified way for opening files in Firefox, directly using System Defaults.

   It can be enhanced with a patch on this dialog, replacing "open with" label with something like "open file". We already applied this fix successfully for ~ 1000 users since 3 months, and no problem shown up. 
   I am currently trying to push it upstream, but maybe an Ubuntu integration can help this process.
