Judging from your other post, you already did it - by selecting the
appropriate application when firefox asks you what to do[1]. If you also
check "Always do this..." the mapping should even appear in the config
dialog you spoke earlier of.


[1] At least I do not know of any other way to generate a mapping
application <-> MIME-type - short of fiddling around with user.js or
other config files.
