Public bug reported:

When one opens a document on a web-page, firefox asks what application should be used to open this file (in cases the web-page doesn't identify this file as some kind of document).
In 'choose hepler application' dialog, one clicks 'recently used', but (!) the list one gets is a list of recently viewed documents, rather than recently used 'helper applications'.
