A form like page, with many radio buttons to customize a Dell product

The problem is there from the 1st version of Firefox 3.7
With minefield, both stylesheets are seen with the mime-type 'text/plain', and this is flagged as an error. The document is in quirks mode, though.

From the error console
Error: The stylesheet was not loaded because its MIME type, "text/plain", is not "text/css".

Error: The stylesheet\config\config75&~environ=dummy was not loaded because its MIME type, "text/plain", is not "text/css".

This was a purposeful change needed to fix a security bug.  See bug 524223. was explicitly mentioned in that bug as one of the sites we'd need to convince to fix their stuff.

Definitely not specific to Dell's European site, either. (See the dupe.) Moving to en-US since that's where Dell HQ is.

My company is a DELL Partner. I've issued the warning through our channels.

I don't know if the have heard me or if there has been a change in the latest nightly build, but right now I've made a test and everything is fine.

I'm using:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; it; rv:1.9.3a4pre) Gecko/20100320 Minefield/3.7a4pre
Both the url in the duped bug and the one in the url field above now work correctly in the latest nightly 
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.3a4pre) Gecko/20100320 Minefield/3.7a4pre

and a couple of recent nightlies (making sure...). Marking as FIXED.
