When I open any php, html, or css files FileZilla opens them in GEdit. Instead I would like FileZilla to open them in NetBeans 7.3. I would like to set NetBeans as the default editor in FileZilla.

Please suggest a procedure to open the files in NetBeans 7.3.

When you right-click on a file of the type that you mention, it should give you the option to select the default program to open files of that type. If this does not help, you may wish to check the documentation for FileZilla, which can be found here:

Netbeans 7.3 executable can be found in /usr/share/applications/NetBeans IDE 7.3

Set this as your default editor in filezilla.
