I can't set a default behaviour for download of *.XLSX files
I am trying to download a spreadsheet file which has a .xlsx extension. Firefox insists on downloading the file (my default action) but I want to be given the option to open in my spreadsheet program (Libreoffice).
Looking in Settings and scrolling down to Files and Applications -> Applications, there are other spreadsheet formats present but not one for .xlsx. How do I add the "Always Ask" option for .xlsx files?
Libreoffice is the default system application for opening these files.

Thanks Terry. That worked perfectly.
It would be good if there were something in the settings page to indicate this for unlisted file types. The "right click on an entry in the download panel to set default behaviour" is not obvious.
Alternately, an obvious link in the download panel to set default behaviour could also work.
