Description

14 years ago
The above link causes Mozilla to pop up this dialog:
'The file "LinuxSDK.html" is of type text/html (HyperText Markup Language), and
Mozilla does not know how to handle this file type.  This file is located at:
http://developer.nvidia.com/attach/
What should Mozilla do with this file?"- etc.

I have a feeling that Mozilla should know what to do with a text/html file.

This is with the tip of the 1.4 branch.  Firebird-trunk also does this same thing.
