That's what I used to do.
Now I can't.
I don't know if it's a Fedora thing or a Gnome 3 thing but it's quite annoying
maybe it's a case that users of Gnome 3 shouldn't be allowed too much control over stuff and just let the experts decide what's the best thing to use

Anyway I can now report that it's Gnome3 providing me with this delightful interlude.
I really don't know why people complain so much about it.
In order to create the file associations I wanted for my PC I used the KDE system settings tool.
