Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Problem with MIME type on Windows platform

I'm running Windows XP, with Firefox 1.5.0.4

When I have ethereal 0.99 installed, and click on a pcap file on my
web-based (Sourcefire) IDS console, it opens right up in Ethereal.

With Wireshark 0.99.1pre1  installed, it does not.

By examining the HTTP headers I found that the MIME type that the IDS
console applies to the pcap file is application/pcap

Apparently Ethereal understands this and configures the mimetype during
installation, but Wireshark does not.

wireshare -v:

wireshark 0.99.1pre1
