Application select for firefox "open folder containing"

When I have a file downloaded via firefox and I right click on the file and select "open folder containing" it asks me to select a program to use, how can I tell it to use nautilus?

That's a bit silly, but you have to browse into /usr/bin and then choose "nautilus" from all that stuff in there. Note that you can enter the first letter of the desired object when you click into the field where the files are.
