For the rest, the correct functioning do not depend of hfs, but of Windows system. (I hope it) ;)

Mars, thanks for your reply, but Windows file associations isn't case of mine :-)
When i click on Mozilla's site on the .xpi link immediately the proposal to install the addon pops up.
But when i click on my site, i get nothing, but prompt to download.
