    I've recently ran into a quip that is bothering me... not sure when it actually started or what might even be causing it. I've attached a snapshot of this problem, if anyone ran into or knows how to stop it I wold be very thankful.

    Also as the error or whatever says it's the first time I've opened the application that is false. It also has done so with other applications as well. Thanks for your time.

    First time I encountered this was post-10.3.5 update.

    I think it's part of a security upgrade to ensure that the app you think will open a file actually is the app which will open it. My guess is that the prefs file which gets populated with your responses started out empty and so will present this with any non-obvious file until you've answered for all file types. Or something like that.

    Still, it's better than finding out what you though was a document was actually going to run AppleScript.
