firefox openwith

How do I assosiate things in firefox, I'm tired of save/open/delete I rather just click a button for it to be done manually like for somefiles firefox is assosiated with programs but not all (usually the new formats)

Thank you

Edit -> Prefrences click on the content tab, then click the manage files button.

A list will appear with all known types of files and what should be done with them.

It also may help to look for plugins for certain types of files, specifically media such as flash.

Or do you mean how do you configure your file manager to use firefox to open things?

I don't see manage files button. I would like to get pdf's to open, I'm using kubuntu. Some websites have pdf's integrated into them, is this also possible to be viewed integrated. To me it just say's "download file" I download and open.
