Firefox 1.5.0.1
FC5

Clicking on mp3 links such as:
mms://www.relapse.com/dbmedia/audio/zombi_-_Challenger Amp.mp3

results in the browser trying to hand off the file to totem. Preferences -> Donloads -> Download Actions -> View and Edit shown nothing and all buttons are greyed out.

I want firefox to open mp3s with xmms. Not sure whats wrong with my setup...

you have to edit the /usr/share/applications/defaults.list file. theres an entry for every mime-type which is set to a .desktop file. search for something like totem.desktop and replace with xmms.desktop (these two files must exist, but could be named different. i'm sorry but right now i dont have access to a linux machine)...

make a backup-copy of your defaults.list first!
