           Summary: text/x-log attachments aren't opened in Firefox like
           Product: Infrastructure
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Bugzilla

Usually when users attach .log files the mimetype gets set to text/x-log,
Firefox doesn't open that mimetype like it does with text/plain, this is a
major annoyance as anyone who wants to examine the log will have to change the
mimetype in the Details of the attachment, or download it to view it with any
text editor.

LpSolit suggested installing an extension that converts text/x-log to
text/plain in bugzilla server side (he also said this extension is used in the
Mozilla Bugzilla).

The extension:
it'll need  File::MimeInfo::Magic and IO::Scalar to work.
