Hey guys, I'm using Ubuntu 24.04 with Firefox 124.0 .deb release from this repository: https://launchpad.net/%7Emozillateam/+archive/ubuntu/ppa I enabled "Ask whether to open or save files" from settings. Whenever the Open/Save dialogue is shown and I choose Open, I expect that the file would be opened using the default application. But Firefox asks again to choose the application by which the file (file link?) should be opened. It seems that Firefox is somehow change the way the files are opened through external applications and transformed local file addresses to file://uri/on/disk.
