Download files with custom extension instead of opening

I am aware how to define what happens, when I click a link leading to a "normal" file extension like PDF, etc. But what can I do with "custom" extensions (.vzf)?

When I click a link leading to a .vzf file, it opens it as text, instead of downloading it. I would love to be able to define that firefox downloads these files, instead of always clicking "save target as".

Thanks a lot!

Best regards Clemens
