    Hi peeps.

    A little help needed if no one minds?

    I am having trouble download .nzb files.

    When i try i get an error via firefox saying: ...nzb could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist.

    I used to used Unison to open this file be have now deleted this and started using i grab and nzb drop.

    I don't know if the problem is with my firefox settings or what? Ive had a look but cant seem to sort it out...

    Thanks in advance for your help as i know how helpful you peeps can be on here!

    Control-Click on the file and choose "Get Info" -> "Open With".
    Select the Application and then click "Change All"

    That will let you set it to whatever you want.

    problem sorted.

    I went into firefox's preferences
    clicked content tab
    at the bottom clicked manages files types, then selected the type of file and changed it there.
