Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Cannot add new handlers for mimetypes - the edit->preferences->applications won't let me, no other way to do it.
Clicking on a file that is unknown results in the dialog box:
You have chosen to open


which is a: <filetype>
from : <url>

[cancel]   [save]

There is no option in the dialog to add the application in.
Is there any circumstances at all that would require a dialog box that is slightly less helpful than a dead herring?
