So, when I tried to reproduce with thunderbird- I can confirm the described behavior, and that the correct value was stored in ~/.thunderbird/*.default/mimeTypes.rdf
Comment 3 lihuang 2008-11-18 00:53:04 EST
Reproduced with thunderbird-

And  I noticed that the action of opening a .doc file was stored in the configure file  and could be shown in the Preferences window correctly if openoffice.org hasn't been installed.

We filed this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=466044) and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.

Thank you for the bug report.
