Configuration to "Always ask" fails when downloading MP3 files.

Why doesn't the configuration to "Always ask" prevent the automatic playing of a downloaded MP3 file?

In Firefox 3.6.8 "Options" window, "Applications" tab, for "Content Type" "MP3 file (application/itunes)" and "MP3 file (audio/mpeg)," the selected action is "Always ask" for both.

VLC Multimedia Plug-in 1.1.0.99 is installed and enabled to play the MP3 files.

At different websites offering podcasts via MP3 files, clicking a "Download MP3/4" button or a "mp3" link causes the file to play automatically in Firefox. No dialog window opens asking what to do with the file.

Given the configuration, why doesn't Firefox launch an "Opening " dialog window that asks whether to open or save the file?

Other than disabling the VLC plug-in, how can Firefox be configured to "Always ask" and make it work?

Operating system is Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

Thank you.
