[TriLUG] playing ogg sound files with firefox

Some websites have pronounciation of words (eg 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tycho_Brahe has Tycho's name 
encoded in ogg). I can download the ogg file and play it 
with alsaplayer. I should be able to click on the link and 
instead have firefox (v1.5) open the file with alsaplayer. 
In preferences/download at the bottom there is an option to 
assocate file extensions with an executable. However when 
you open the window, you can only change the executable for 
already known file extensions. I can't find anywhere to add 
".ogg" and a player for ogg files.

How do I play ogg files in firefox?

Thank Joe
