[thelist] Launching a MDB file from a TWiki and browsers

Hi all --

I have a Microsoft Access database file (mdb) that I want to launch 
from a link either in our TWiki and/or from a regular web 
page.  Using IE the link will open from the browser and from the 
Wiki.  Using Firefox the link won't open at all from the Wiki and 
from the browser all it will do is save the file rather than open.

So, does anyone know if it is possible to force Firefox to open a mdb file?

If I can't figure out a way to have a link somewhere then I'll have 
to install a shortcut on all my users (only about 15) desktops.
