Hi James,

In Firefox:

'Edit'->'Preferences'->'Downloads'->'View & Edit Actions'
Scroll to 'PLS'=>PLS file' and set the action to '/usr/bin/xmms'

If you've got all the latest related Packman multimedia packages, this
*should* work. For some reason, I can't get xmms to handle .pls streams but
it's handling .m3u just fine. I'm still running 10.0 if that matters.

hth & regards,
