Hmm, it seems that I cannot manually add helper applications to Firefox.

where I can choose the helper application by browsing the system. This
is just hard on Linux as I only get to browse the filesystem, not a list
of applications. I know that the latter is a Linux problem.
What happened with this feature (it's there in Mozilla 1.7.x) and how do
you guys handle this on Linux?
(Firefox 22.214.171.124 on Linux)
To add a helper application
Download file of the type you want
Firefox will tell you it doesnt know what to do with the file
Tell it what to do, and check
Do this for other files of this type
<POOF> you will have a helper application ! You can later edit or change
it if you want.
