I know you are trying to be helpful but you answer does not really
help. With firefox open I go to Edit-> preferences-> Downloads

In the window that opens there is one option that seems relevant. Under
file types there is a statement that the associated action will be
performed on the following file types. However this window is empty
and cannot be written to. The only thing I can do is click on the
plugins button which opens another window with columns Extension, File
type and Enabled. This window is also empty so I am stuck,

What am I missing that I should see?
