Hello everybody,

i have a problem with downloading in firefox. When i download a file with an extension unfamiliar to firefox, the download prompt opens, as it should be. What's missing is the option to select "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" before choosing an action. This means i can not "teach" firefox how to handle unfamiliar files which gets tedious when downloading them en masse. How do i get this option backin the prompt? Alternatively, is there another option to add file extensions and what to do with them to the Applications list in general settings?

Thank you very much!

"Do this automatically..." is only available if the file is send by the server with a valid (registered) MIME type for this file extension.
