I did what I should have done ages ago and started googling. Found that
Firefox (to my total amazement) truly does not have this basic feature
by default!

To get it, you have to install the "MIME Edit" extension. Install it,
then adding, removing and editing applications and file types is simple.

Thanks for your help, all those who offered answers. Much appreciated.
