Firefox 3.5 adds support for OGG and WAV playback using the HTML5
<audio> element. Great!
However, it also defaults to opening a media player in the browser whenever I follow a link to OGG or WAV. It's not a plugin, it seems to be implemented as a simple HTML wrapper containing
<audio>, but I still don't like it. I want to get a prompt to open/download/whatever like with any other media file.
I've set the action for OGG and WAV to ‘Always ask’ in the ‘Applications’ tab on Preferences, but this is ignored. I can't see anything obvious in
about:config. Except for
media.ogg.enabled, but that just disables format support so I still get an HTML player for OGG, just one that doesn't work. Gah!
Google's not helping today; do any superusers have a solution, before I go bugging the zilla?
