How do I get firefox to open a .nfo file with notepad instead of only asking me where I want to save the file?

Update:

I know I can save it and then open it, I'd like notepad to launch right from firefox when I click on a link that is a .nfo file.

Update 2:

.nfo files already have notepad associated with them, firefox refuses to recognize it.

    Right click on the .nfo,

    Select "Open With"

    Click on "Choose Program"

    In the list of programs that are displayed, find "Notepad", then click on it to select it

    Check the box that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file"

    Click "OK"

    Now Windows will tell Firefox (and all other programs for that matter) to open .nfo files in Notepad.

    Now, so Firefox will open it automatically when you click on a .nfo link:

    When you click on the link in Firefox, it should (depending on your download settings) ask you what to do with the file. (open or save). You want to select "Open File", and check the box that says something like, "Alway perform this action with this file type".

    Again, this depends on FF's download settings. Do you have any download manager extensions, or is it the one built into FF?
