OS: Ubuntu 20.04 Firefox 113.0(64 Bit )

I am building a website on my hard drive just using files. EX: file:///home/username/notes/main.html <a href="/home/username/folder/file.txt"></a>

I put an anchor link in the html source , and when I click on it I want it to open file.txt with gedit. I can get c files to do it , but .txt files open in Firefox.
