Currently Firefox is set by Windows to open .html files. I'm hoping I can sort of override this in FileZilla so I can do quick edits and then upload them to the server.

In FileZilla go to edit > settings...

In the left column scroll down to "file editing"...

Select it, then in the right column select "use custom editor" then browse to the .exe file on your comp for Notepad++.

Hope it helps. :)

[Additional Note: if you are experiencing the same problem that @theking2 has in the comment below, remember that FileZilla also imports your system's filetype associations. This may cause conflicts with your custom associations. You can disable system associations under edit > settings > file editing > Filetype Associations: look for the checkbox. Don't forget that you did this though - it may cause other problems down the road.]

Ah, it does indeed help. But it doesn't completely work. I think that because it's View/Edit and somehow the system has the idea that html files are meant to viewed and not edited. However, it does work for some other stuff, like .css. Anyway, the fix: Settings > File editing > Filetype associations and enter the following custom filetype association: html "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe". Bam. –  Nathaniel Jan 1 '10 at 17:30

Doesn't work. With filezilla 3.5.1 when I select "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe" as custom editor under Default editor html files are still opened in Firefox when I select Edit from context menu. –  user103998 Nov 3 '11 at 14:07
    
The settings are just for editing the files (note the settings page title). The Open context menu item always uses the system filetype associations. Also note that the Edit option is only available when connected to a server. This is by design. –  Daniel Mar 14 '13 at 18:18

Go to Edit / Settings / File Editing / Use custom editor (i use notepad++), then Filetype associations / html "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

Pay close attention, you must specify the filetype before the full address to the application which will open it.

Save an html file to any place on your computer. Then go into Windows Explorer, right-click and press "properties" and then then where it says "Opens with: Firefox" press the "Change" button and select Notepad++.
