Without telling us what this "debian installer" exactly does, nobody
will be able to help you.  From the description it sounds as if it is
*not* the "debian installer" that we use to install a Debian system from

This sounds like you are using a browser-based scheme?

I'm not sure, but I think that many browsers have their own handling of
file types or file extensions, independent of mime-types.  So this might
turn out to be a browser question.

But generally, yes, changing mime-support's conffiles can do this.
Please read the documentation and ask specific questions where you can't
find out yourself.  

By the way, I'm not sure whether this question might be better suited
for debian-users@lists.debian.org.
