This can be smoothly resolved in the mean time if Firefox is shipped
with different defaults, namely to have xdg-open available as an option
for all file types (which I believe is possible) and to have every file
type which is not to be viewed internally instead opened using /usr/bin
/xdg-open.

If possible, have xdg-open named "Default application" or some such in
Firefox, so that something like the download method dialog says "Open
with [default application]".

I don't know much about Firefox, and I've never looked at its source,
but it shouldn't take much effort to implement and the result for end
users would be terrific.
