[LON-CAPA-users] Safari on OS X

Yes, we just independently discovered that. It is a bug in the current
Safari - LON-CAPA sends out MIME type headers saying
but Safari in the current version ignores them and goes by the file
extension rather than the stated MIME-type. Since Safari does not know
what to do with "MIME-type problem," it starts downloading it. Until
Apple gets that fixed again in a future version, I would recommend
Mozilla on MacOS 10.2, which works great. My primary computer is a
MacOS 10.2 laptop, and I use Mozilla all the time.
