JNLP files not running correctly

I'm attempting to run a JNLP file. When I first run it, I select "Open With" (rather than "Save File") and select "Java(TM) Web Start Launcher (default") as the program to open it with.

I also turn on the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" button.

However, it doesn't behave as expected. It downloads it to the Downloads folder, displaying this folder in focus (and also creating a new copy of the JNLP file each time I run it). Also the splash screen is displayed but nothing happens.
