When I click on an image link (e.g. PNG), Firefox 4 asks me what it should do with the file, either Open With or Save File. If I check "do this automatically for files like this from now on", the next time I click the same file, it still asks the same question. How can I skip this? I just want it to open in my image viewer automatically, without asking.

EDIT: Running Windows 7.
