It's a problem in the filemanager itself, reassign to pcmanfm

  [12.04] lubuntu: "open-dialog" is confused when there are different
  filetypes for the same application

Status in LXDE - Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment:
Status in “pcmanfm” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  riqht click on a file is opening a windows with "open, open with,
  copy, properties" and so on. if i have 2 *.doc files, i can mark them
  and then click right on a file and choose "open" and libreoffice will
  open both of the files. But that option is missing when i mark a *.doc
  and a *.docx. Both are set to libreoffice as the mime-handler but the
  menu is not handling different file-extentions which are opened with
  the same application, so there is just the option "open with" instead
  of open, so i have to select libreoffice from a list

  the same goes for *.png and *.jpg., *.mp3 and *.wav and so on.

  So this should be fixed so that me menu is offering "open" when all
  selected files are opened with the same program, even when the file-
  extension is different
