For the HTML file type, I want the "Open" event to trigger Mozilla, but the
"Edit" event to trigger a text editor (PFE32). But, if I have "HTML" checked in
Prefs -> Advanced -> System, it will always override my using PFE to edit an
HTML file. What would be nice is two little entries underneath HTML that read
"Edit HTML Documents" and "Open HTML Documents", and if you check the master
HTML switch it turns both of those on by default--but then you can uncheck them
if you want. Natch if you uncheck both of them, the master switch turns off.

A workaround is to setup the associations in Windows the way you like, and next
time you start Mozilla and it complains "Mozilla is no longer your default
browser...", uncheck "Check next time, too" and click No. But IMO that is more
kludgy than having a selective association in the System pref.
