Interesting. I'm starting to get a clearer idea of how FF handles file
associations now and it seems a bit odd. Here's how I understand it
currently; for links on the web they're handled by FF's own list of
actions (ask, download, or launch in this program), for the files
already on the download list they're supposed to be 'what the OS would
do' if you launched that file from the desktop. But FF needs the
firefox-gnome-support package to know what gnome would do.. and
otherwise the default action seems to be poorly defined. Why
OpenOffice is a bit of a mystery still?
Anyone else got a bit more insight on this?
