Contentt-type of CFDG files from the gallery

Post by TorfusPolymorphus »

If I click on a "Open CFDG"-link in the gallery, it seems the respective file gets served using a content-type that marks it as a binary file. Now Firefox 3 lets you only associate actions to downloads based on content-types (on Linux, dunno if that's different on Windows). Thus I can't associate any program with these CFDG files, I have to download them and then open them in the respective program. It's not too much trouble, but still it would be awesome if that could be fixed. "text/cfdg" would be a good choice, I guess :D

...actually, "text/x-cfdg", as CFDG is not an IANA-registered media type (cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_media_type).
