No, i mean NOT to play around with those since they are used by
torbutton internaly. (eg, disable TOR, go to about:config, check them.
Then enable TOR with torbutton go to about:config again (be sure to
reload that page) and check them again. They should now be changed.
disable tor again and they should go back to original.)

Yes. if your concerned about safebrowsing change them.

I think the hidden wiki suggestion is correct. this will make FF not
open any external apps at all. opening external apps can be dangerous
since no one knows if those external apps use tor or not and they could
do even more evil stuff.

Actually, doing some google search i found out those settings are
Playing with them had no effect on my system which i dont like.
If they WOULD work, i suggest to change them, since then you get at
least a warning window before open external applications.
If you set external apps handlers to false as suggested by the hidden
wiki, those settings don't do anything.
- From a reply to that bug it apears to me, that the torbutton people
dealed with the problem in some way, but i didnt mind enough to dig
