firefox & jpeg attachments


Hi.

I'm using Firefox 1.0 on SuSE 9.1 Pro. Whenever I receive webmail with a jpeg attachment, it seems to be fairly random as to which application is used to open the file.

When I click on a file, I get the dialog box asking me whether I wish to save or open, and usually it says "Open with Display (default)" This is what I want it to do, and have clicked the box to say always do this with this type of file.

However, about 50% of the jpeg's I try to open, I only get offered the gimp. Even in the same mail, with multiple attachments, it may choose 'display' once, then on a subsequent opening of the same file will revert back to the gimp.

Any ideas as to why this might be happening, or where the file association mappings are stored please?

Mike.
