    Firefox keeps opening media file links and plays them in the browser not my default media player.
    Help.
    Thank you,

    Open your Firefox. Click on Tools, Options, and then Applications. Set the program to use for the content type that you want it to be.

    I found something here.
    Starting in Firefox 21 on Windows 7 and above, downloaded MP3 files (also MP4 files with the H.264 video codec and either AAC audio or MP3 audio codec) are also automatically played. Firefox Options -> Applications settings for those MIME types are ignored, unless you go to about:config and toggle the preference media.windows-media-foundation.enabled to false

    So try entering about:config in your URL/address bar, enter the key media.windows-media-foundation.enabled for the Filter, then, assuming that key shows up, change its status to false.
