How do I map a .csv MIME type to the "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File" application using Firefox?

When I open Tools > Options > Applications and enter csv in the search box, I see two entries for Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File. These correspond to "application/csv" and "text/csv". I assume Firefox found these in the registry, but that's just a guess.
Are you missing both of those?
Usually you can add a new type and an application to handle it by accessing a file with the content type (MIME type) and responding to the dialog asking what to do with the file.
Does that help?
Yes, I am missing both of entries. I'll have to experiment a bit. I'll let you know how I make out. thanks
If the server sends the .csv file with a registered MIME type then Firefox should allow to set an automatic action for that file.
