.mht "MHTML" files won't open + can't be viewed when click from a link
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041103 Firefox/1.0RC2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041103 Firefox/1.0RC2 MHTML files will not open from links, and can't be opened from a file on a hard drive. Basically, there appears to be no MHTML file support. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to <a href="http://staffweb.peoriaud.k12.az.us/Judy_Schwiebert/Science%20Sites/Science%20Resources.htm">http://staffweb.peoriaud.k12.az.us/Judy_Schwiebert/Science%20Sites/Science%20Resources.htm</a> 2. click on AP Biology 3. use any of the mentioned circumstances below to reproduce a result Actual Results: -When clicking the link to the .mht file Firefox will treat the file as if it needs to be downloaded. -If you choose to open it with the default application M$ IE will open it (even though M$ IE has been disabled and Mozilla 1.7 is installed and set as default browser.) -If you choose to have Firefox open it, an infinite loop of tabs will start to open. If you close the page with the infinite loops and another page is open, that page will start to have infinite loops of tabs occure. The same is true if the download box is open when closing a page with infinite loops. -If Firefox is set to always open .mht files and a link to an .mht file is clicked an infite loop of tabs opening will also occure. *Please note that I have all page set in open up in new tabs. Expected Results: When clicking a link to an .mht file from a webpage, the page should load + be viewed just like any standard .html page. Also, Firefox should be able to open the MHTML file (when using File > open file...) Both Mozilla 1.7 and M$ IE 6(SP2) will dispaly the MHTML file just like a HTML file when clicked from a link. Both Mozilla 1.7 and M$ IE 6(SP2) will open and .mht file. I have Mozilla 1.7 installed also. I have Windows XP SP2 installed. This bug was also present in Firefox RC1.
