MisFox helps you access several Internet settings which were available under Mac OS 8 and 9 and are still present -- but hidden -- in OS X. So if these settings gets corrupt for some reason there's no way to repair these settings anymore. MisFox makes some of the most important Internet settings accessible again.

MisFox will show all the file mappings settings and the protocol helpers. You can inspect these settings, but you can also edit, delete and create new items for these settings.

The File Mappings are used for many tasks. First they will translate the "content-type" and file extensions which are more...

What's New

Version 2.0:
  • Rewritten as Preference Panel for the System Preferences application
  • MisFox is now Universal Binary and runs natively on PowerPC and Intel Macs

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

I'm a little concerned to see the developer release this as if it were in any way new ... when I see it is exactly the same as years ago in Classic Mac. And the file types and mappings reflect this, as well as the old, old choice of IE 4.5 for browser. How long ago was that?

RCDefaultApp by RixStep is the true file mapper for OS X, and the only reason to use MIsFox is if you have simple enough needs.

The developer's description is not entirely the case ...but I think this version may be a bit more editable.

I'm concerned that noobs and switchers may get confused by all those file types that don't even exist in OS X ... which is, after all, what we're working with.

Nice app. Does what it says and not overly complicated. PLUS, I can verify that it works on my "MacIntel" MacBook. :)

Excellent app. Much easier than the manual way of doing this. The only problem is that when I deleted an entry it did not refresh the table. It was still there. Of course, a restart of the app showed that it was properly deleted, but it was a little odd. Otherwise, excellent app.

This does more than More Internet. It provides an interface to change all the MIME type file mappings (in addition to the protocol helper programs). It remains preferable to me.

It's a nice application and it's free (and it's a pity how MacOS X sent us into the past in too many respects, being the one addressed by this app one of them - other "fixers" aren't and we're spending money on them to get back feautres MacOS did have).
However, More Internet (which is also free) does the same thing this app does and it's a preference pane, which is a more convenient thing as far as I'm concerned.

This is an immensely useful app -- easy to use and reliable. It makes up for the confusing lack of features in OS X that some of us relied upon in OS 9 Internet Settings and Internet Config. Enables the user to change File Mappings (i.e. what file is opened with what app) and Protocol Settings (e.g. what is launched to handle ftp protocol). Personally, I like having this as an application rather than a preference pane.

What took so long for a program like this to come out? Would be nice if it was a prefs pane.
