Open firefox’s about:config. Then add a string value with the name of
network.protocol-handler.app.file
and assign it whatever you like, for example /usr/bin/konqueror or
/usr/bin/doplhin. Alternatively, once that entry exists, you can also invoke a
dialogue for that by selecting "Go to download folder" once. You then get the
opportunity to select an app via a file choser.
