Mozilla Firefox bug #57342 was the first bug I encountered after I had completed my switch from Galeon (which got infected by GNOME2-itis, such that you could not change basic browser settings without gnome-control-panel). It's still a bug, but I of course understand the Firefox developer's decision that a user's request to be able to view simple text files inline (\) is a low priority improvement. I won't allow myself to make a comment about the Firefox code quality that in six years, noone has come up with a working patch for this massive challenge. Do they have to switch their browser into protected memory mode and load a DOS emulator to be able to handle plain text?

Fortunately, I have since found this extension. Now my life is really much simpler.
