However, GoDaddy should support MIME type "image/svg+xml" ubiquitously. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Attempt to view an SVG site on a GoDaddy website that does not have the above modifications to the .htaccess file. 2. 3. Actual Results: The SVG source is shown. Expected Results: The SVG image should have been rendered by Mozilla (if it had received its proper MIME type).
Jeff, as much as I appreciate your position I think this is more of a tech support issue between you and godaddy. The fact that you can use .htaccess means this is not even a permanent issue with you. -> INVALID.

Bob, I had been exchanging some emails with Jonathan Watt regarding SVG on Mozilla and when I mentioned this, he asked me to raise a bug here so Moz could help push the issue. I'm only doing what I was told ;) Regards, Jeff
Jeff, no problem. If you could add Jonathan's email to the cc list, we can discuss what should be done.
Bob, I asked Jeff to file this bug because I was under the impression that TE people are interested in getting ISPs to send the correct HTTP headers for SVG since we require them. Indeed I closed bug 283620 as invalid (the same issue, but for comcast), but got my knuckles rapped.
