Hi, everyone. Sorry if this is an inappropriate place to post this question.
Up until a few days ago, I could click a link to a locally stored .py file and Firefox would display it as a plain text file. This is what I want; e.g., it’s a way for me to organize notes, view examples I’ve created in the past, and like that.
Now when I click such a link, Firefox pops up a window asking me if I want to “Open with …” or “Save file”.
I installed Python 3.9.6 a few days ago, so I wondered it that was a coincidence. I don’t think it is, because I just went to another machine, where clicking a link to a .py file worked as desired, updated the Python on that machine, and now I’m seeing the same (unwanted) behavior.
I do have a question posted about this in the Mozilla support forum, but I thought I ought to mention this here, too. And ask if there is anything that’s new in the Python installation procedure that would cause this. And if so, is it something I could fix by re-installing Python and doing something different during the installation?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
P.S. Both machines are running Win 10 Pro, and both are running Firefox v90.0.2.
