One thing you can do that Mozilla refuses to do is change the following
config option from true to false.

Go to: about:config
in the browser, Then change the value of the config parameter:
from true to false.
This will allow you to go to: Edit->preferences->Content
Then in box called File types click on Manage.
There you will see a list of what application handles which extension
type. This can now be changed. This hidden feature of firefox is helpful
in situations such as yours.

spend too much money and pay lots of hidden taxes, then leave. We'll be
happy to see your money again next year. You can save time by simply
sending the money, if you're too busy.
