Is default to text in layout when file type is unknown proper? In the above url (actually this is the link for <download>, the extension "qmb" is unknown so the file is downloaded as text in the Mozilla window. I wouldn't even know how to add it to helper applications. Also, I'm surprised that it even got to the filename because there is no php3 in helper apps, just php.
The php script redirects to http://quickmenubuilder.free.fr/menus/Erin%Brockovich.qmb the server tells us that the file is text/plain the server is telling us to show it as text marking it invalid. the only thing you could do is contact the webmaster of the site and tell him he should be sending the files with the correct content-type

I see this bug has been tagged browser evangelism. I wonder if there is also a difference between the way we do things and the way the French are doing things. Just a little poke in that direction. Actually doesn't sound like it from the last comment.
free.fr is just sending the wrong mime type for this file. they need to configure their server to send the right one...
Contact address is firstname.lastname@example.org The server's default content-type for unknown suffixes is probably text/plain. % curl -I http://quickmenubuilder.free.fr/menus/Erin%20Brockovich.qmb HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2003 17:06:13 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.20 (Unix) Debian/GNU Last-Modified: Sun, 13 Jan 2002 17:27:47 GMT ETag: "7cca0b-2c117-3c41c393" Accept-Ranges: bytes Content-Length: 180503 Content-Type: text/plain
