How to change FileZilla so that View/Edit opens .html in Notepad++, not Firefox

Currently Firefox is set by Windows to open .html files. I'm hoping I can sort of override this in FileZilla so I can do quick edits and then upload them to the server.

"In FileZilla go to edit > settings...

In the left column scroll down to ""file editing""...

Select it, then in the right column select ""use custom editor"" then browse to the .exe file on your comp for Notepad++.

Hope it helps. :)

[Additional Note: if you are experiencing the same problem that @theking2 has in the comment below, remember that FileZilla also imports your system's filetype associations. This may cause conflicts with your custom associations. You can disable system associations under edit > settings > file editing > Filetype Associations: look for the checkbox. Don't forget that you did this though - it may cause other problems down the road.]"

Save an html file to any place on your computer. Then go into Windows Explorer, right-click and press "properties" and then then where it says "Opens with: Firefox" press the "Change" button and select Notepad++.
