From the sounds of it, it's a mime-type issue. However, no hands on access and decent tcpdumps says i can't even give an accurate guess.
Also, why the fuck would you wan't to read the plain text of a php (if that's what i understand you want). Thats what the .phps extension is for. Also, .phps has sexy highlighting for +5 sex points.
The bug's been around for quite a while. It occurs to users at intermittent versions for firefox, I suppose.
And why would I want to read the PHP code? Well, obviously I need to know what the PHP code does, so I need to read it without parsing it. Lets just say I've a habit of opening local PHP files in firefox, and I'm not comfortable with my text editor(Of course I'd open it in my text editor when I need to edit the code), and I got a little curious when I couldn't open 'em, so I posted it here, to get some answers.
