Maybe that something is not clear : without any plugin, Firefox does find an 
application to handle all sort of content (including msexcel) on my system. In 
that case, it actually lauches OpenOffice calc in its own window.

But, I'm looking for a plugin so that the spreadsheet gets embedded into the 
browser window. That's what the bonobo plugin at least achieved with msword content.
