I can't find any mappings in mine (1.0), but its help says:

| The settings in the Downloads panel in the OptionsPreferences window tell
| Firefox which helper applications to use on your computer. In the File
| Types section, you can see how different file types will be handled by
| Firefox. You can change the action for a file type or remove it. Also, if
| Firefox doesn't know which helper application to use, it allows you to
| find helper applications within the download dialog box.
| The download dialog box has these choices:
| * Open using: Firefox opens the file using the default program in your
| system settings. You can also choose a different program by selecting
| Other... in the drop-down list.
| * Save to Disk: Firefox allows you to select a location to save the
| file. If you have selected Save all files to this folder in the Downloads
| panel of OptionsPreferences, the file will automatically be saved to the
| default folder.
| * Do this automatically for files like this from now on: When this is
| selected, Firefox will automatically perform the selected action the next
| time you download a file of this type.
| Tip: You can clear your saved optionspreferences for Do this automatically
| for files like this from now on in the Downloads panel of
| OptionsPreferences.
