Hi,

When I click on a Webstart program in FireFox I get prompted how to open it, and when I select Java, the Downloads window pops up while the JNLP application fires up.

I seem to recall that sometime in the past this was fixed such that you'd click on JNLP and it would open without prompting or without poping up the downloads window. Is this a regression?

This is controlled entirely on the browser's side. If you click to remember the action without prompting, does it prevent popping up the download window?

There's an RFE against the installer to modify prefs.js to not prompt the user, but this has been open for a while and I don't think there's been a regression.

No. It pops up next time anyway.
