The web server serving the file tells the browser what the MIME type of
the file is.
If you're asking about this in the context of Manila as the server,
then you need to add the .pgm file type to Frontier's list of MIME
types. You must have access to the server to make this change, or ask
your Manila system administrator to:
Jump to user.webserver.prefs.ext2MIME, duplicate any of the existing
entries and change the new duplicate to:
This tells Manila to set the MIME type sent to the browser for this
particular file extension. If your browser is configured properly, that
should launch your plugin (or helper app).
