Add options for advanced MIME types editing

Post by aegis » 2017-06-02, 09:07

Hi,
I would like to have an option, in the application section of the preferences menu, for an advanced MIME types editing, that permits to manually add/remove mimetypes, set the actions and the default applications.

You could see some example in the old version of Seamonkey: http://kb.mozillazine.org/File_types_an ... Monkey_1.x

There is also a (very) old extension for firefox, no more avable from official channels: http://www.ffextensions.com/addon/MIME+Edit/2155.html
but you can't select the default application, and it's a really buggy extension.

I found difficult to edit manually the mimeTypes.rdf file propely.

I also have an issue whit torrent files that make the text editor the default program for open them, so when I open a torrent file from the download button menu, it will be opened ever with the text editor instead the program I choose. So having an option thac can also manage the default application in Pale Moon could be useful to resolve quickly issues similar to this one.

This kind of functionality really does belong in an extension, not in the core.
Perhaps someone can revive the old extension for Firefox in a Pale Moon compatible way.
