File type problems.

I'm not sure what I did to cause this but all of my mp3's are showing as Netscape Plugger 4.0 files I went into my KDE control panel and changed the file association to XMMS but they are still showing as the netscape files, my media players will play them but its just odd that linux thinks they are netscape plug ins, anyone know how to fix this?

Go into "Konqueror->Settings->Congure Konqueror->File Associations" and type ".mp3" into the "Find filename pattern" field. Make it so .mp3 extensions are handled by xmms.
