Thank you!

I did this but that does not solve the problem. Still the file just
disappears when I click on it. When I right-klick on the file the
mime-type changes from "application/mathematica" to "plain text
document" and I do not understand why. That is realy a bad bug! So the
file type is known in the beginning but does change when acting on it

Regards, JC
