I tried to download a file using the Sun Download Manager. First, I downloaded the *.jnlp file in Firefox. Then I double-clicked the JNLP file, only for a console window to open briefly, flash some text across the console, then exit before I could read the text.

I have used Sun Download Manager before but don't what's gone wrong after updating to a new edition. By the way I donwloaded both the WebStart plugin for Firefox and the standalone version.

Also, what is the correct mime type or Windows file association for *.jnlp files?

Window XP Pro SP2, JRE 1.6.0_02.
