​This is a list of the 'efforts' done by OpenSuSE on integrating Mozilla
Firefox with KDE, unfortunately there are not links to the actual patches
but it does include, KDE File Dialog support, KDE Application launcher
support and other things (that you dont care) like icons and themes.
http://old-en.opensuse.org/KDE/FirefoxIntegration

If there is a way to get to those patches, it would be trivial to switch to
the OpenOffice values since this is mainly KDE code, more than AOO. ​

​I notice there was little to no integration with any KDE-PIM on that
table, which is a shame, althought Nepomuk track the files more than the
applications AFAIK.​
