Overview Description:

On a necko build of mozilla, attempting to visit the page at www.nvidia.com
results in a download attempt instead of displaying the page in the browser.

Steps to Reproduce:
1) start apprunner
2) type "http://www.nvidia.com/" in the URL bar

  Also:

1) "./apprunner http://www.nvidia.com/"

Actual Results:

A small dialog saying "You have started to download a file of type text/html
..."

Expected Results:

The webpage displayed in the browser.

Build Date & Platform Bug Found:

July 27th CVS pull from about 4pm PST.  Solaris/native build.
Gags, this happens at quite a few sites, let me know if you need more test
cases.
OS: Solaris → All
Hardware: Sun → All
I think the problem may be the charset attribute of the Content-type header line
sent by their HTTP server. It returns: Content-Type: text/html; charset=US-ASCII

and in the xterm window where I launched apprunner the following message
appears:
DocLoaderFactory: Unable to create ContentViewer for command=view,
content-type=text/html; charset=US-ASCII

Tested on Linux (RH 6.0) build 1999073108

FYI:
$ telnet www.nvidia.com 80
Trying 140.174.105.248...
Connected to www.nvidia.com.
