It has done what is supposed to do and the result is a good sign.

Let me go back, as promised, to this problem.

Can you experience this now ?

Try in Firefox to download a doc formatted document, e.g. from this site:

When I do this is displays a dialog window like this:
What should Firefox do with this file ?
<radio control> Open with <selection control>
In this <selection control> select Writer (default) 
and click OK.

You should see document being downloaded and OO Writer being called to display
the document.

Does it work ?
