If you are trying to view a file from a site and instead it prompts for a download location, it's most likely the result of a misconfigured server.

For users

  • Contact the webmaster of the site and tell them about the issue. This is very important so that not only you can view the file properly, but others can too.
  • If you must view the page, you can download the file, rename it to the proper extension, then open it locally.

For webmasters

Read MIME types.
