FF/TB Consistancy request & minor default bug (?)

Robert-64
On my iBook, both FF and TB regularly ask me if I want them to be the
default browser/email client as appropriate.  I always say "yes", but FF
requires that I leave the "always check on launch" checkbox checked, and
TB requires that I leave the "never ask me again" checkbox unchecked.

My suggestion is to switch one of the dialog boxes so that it is
consistent with the other.

My wish is that neither ever asked me again; that both just kept their
default-ness (or, that there was a setting to "always set as the default
on launch without asking").

What version of OSX are you using?

Thunderbird's dialog have been reworked in the nightly builds, so this shouldn't
be an issue anymore.

10.4.8, iBook G4 1.33GHz, 12".

It's a minor annoyance which pops up fairly randomly (more often after a
reboot than just restarting FF/TV, though).

I have not noticed it here on a mac mini and a Powerbook on Tiger, nor
on an IMac with Panther.

Older versions of OSX user=d to require you to go through Safari to set
  defaults. I wonder if another app is setting itself as default when
you reboot.
