I've been playing around a bit working with managing firefox's profile manager so that I can click open a saved html and browse at the same time, and I've come to an annoyance. I used to have a custom program to run (/usr/local/firefox/firefox) to open html, but I made a small shell script to open it up as /usr/local/firefox . Now I have both in the open with menu.
I decided maybe I could fix things in the file types and programs manager. But I doesn't seem that I can fix my problem through that, but I come up with another idea. I would like to get firefox with a non-custom item, kinda like how you can go to the file associations and a huge list of preset programs are there. I think this is done by going to 'add service' but I don't know what to put in for the 'protocol'.
So I would like to know how I can get rid of those extra custom programs and how I can edit those preset programs for a file type. Am I on the right track? What do I put in for 'protocol' for an html document?

I found a file in ~/.gnome/application-info/user.applications
This lists all my custom programs, so I fixed that one, hehe, shoulda tried a little harder before I came running here :-) But still I'm interested in how all this works, and the whole protocol thing...
