    what exactly do u mean, do you set the the file to open with firefox? and want to change it to something else? or have i misunderstood

    I thought ubuntu geeks knew everything?

    Ever have the need to change the program or application that a file type is associated to in GNOME? If so, you can easily make the modifications in Ubuntu (or any Linux distribution).

    To do so, open up Nautilis (click on Places in the top panel menu then open your home directory) and find the file type that you want to change the association.
