User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040319 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040319 Today I twice had the situation that I wanted to just view some plain text file while browsing. One was at the location given, of type text/xebuild, the other a C++ file on my disc described as text/c++-program or something like that. Both times mozilla gave me the options to either open them with my default editor, choose an application or just save them. I wouls very much like to have a fourth option "Display text in browser window" that simply treats the data as plain text. It is to argue if this option should be always present or just for text/* content type. I vote for always, and leave the decision up to the user. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Selected Link to text/* unknown mime type Actual Results: Options: 1. open using <some text editor> 2. open using <choose application> Browse 3. save to disk Expected Results: 4. display as text in browser window
