Is this the secret you are looking for ?

Not sure where I found it - this list I think

"In the past, you could tell mozilla how to handle a media file. They
changed in Firefox, but there's a way to bring that feature back. In
Firefox, type about:config at the url and find 

browser.download.hide_plugins_without_extensions

Double click on it to set it to false. Then under
Edit->Preferences->Downloads you should see all the media types and
(theoretically) you could change the player. I didn't mess with that but
it might just be the feature we want."
