Re: How to stop Quicktime to opening MP3 file on Firefox?

I am suggesting the following stuff which you can use to fix the requirement of yours.
  • You need to go to the about:config.
  • Now you should enter plugin on the filter box.
  • You need to see for the plugin.disablefull_page_plugin_fortypes
  • In case it is already existing then it will contains values and simp0ly add the audio/mpeg at the end or simply change the audio/mpeg.
  • Now you should close the Firefox on the computer and launch the same and click on the MP3 link.
I am sure that it will work for you.

I have found that the config line was not existing on the computer of mine. However I have right clicked on the main about:config window and simply created the new string value with the set to the ?audio/mpeg? without using quotes and after doing the same I have closed the browser and restarted the same. After doing the same I was able to meet the requirement of mine. So you should try the above mentioned thing it will help you out.
