Created attachment 574069 [details] mimeTypes.rdf User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0 Firefox/8.0 Build ID: 20111104165243 Steps to reproduce: Uploaded a file to my online storage site and it notified me that the MIME-Type that Mozilla Firefox had sent was not accurate due to a bug. Actual results: The site had automatically detected that it should have been "application/x-msdos-program" not "application/octet-stream" as suggested by Mozilla Firefox. Expected results: Mozilla Firefox should have better MIME-Type detection algorithms, and not rely so heavily on the mimeTypes.rdf file. I have attached mine, which may be triggering this bug.
If you notice, even when I attached my mimesTypes.rdf file, it incorrectly assigned "application/octet-stream" instead of "application/rdf+xml".
