darn. that sounds like it's the right answer. 

alas, i can't find asx in his list of filetypes, in Firefox. I wouldn't mind so much, but
I can't find it in *mine* either - and mine is working right.

Microsoft has to get all friendly and call things Windows Media... something and then way over on the right, you can finally see the thing that would be a file extension. Alas, the dialog-ish box from the Applications tab isn't wide enough to read them all, and doesn't allow you to widen the left column (gee, thanks, Firefox)
