This isn't the responsibility of firefox I think.  It must be set somewhere in
GNOME's MIME system.  I don't know which package.  desktop team would know. 
Setting FC4Blocker.

It's not immediately obvious to me that this can be fixed in shared-mime-info -
Jonathan, do you know?

OK, presumably this patch

Index: defaults.list

should do the fix. 

It seems that Evince, per it's desktop file, doesn't handle the
application/x-gzpostscript MIME type. Is that correct, jrb? If Evince doesn't,
should we just drop that entry in defaults.lst? 

Another issue is that we need to have Evince in the default install for this to
work; is that the case now?

Bah, ggv was removed from the distro on 2005-02-24 but defaults.list wasn't
updated :-/. I checked comps.xml and Evince is indeed installed per default.
