no long possible to view greasemonkey scripts in loggerhead

Bug #317950 reported by Brian Murray on 2009-01-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

It used to be possible to view the source of greasemonkey scripts in the launchpad-gm-scripts project. However, now when clicking on the file name at,, greasemonkey wants to install the script. This did not always used to be the case and going to a url like allows one to view the script. Additionally, if you let greasemonkey install the script the script doesn't work because it is really an xml file.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<html xmlns="">
<meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type" />
<title>~gm-dev-launchpad/launchpad-gm-scripts/master : contents of lp_patches.user.js at revision 64</title>
<link href="/~gm-dev-launchpad/launchpad-gm-scripts/master/static/css/global.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Is this greasemonkey getting confused because we have a url ending in .js whose resource has content-type text/html? Sounds like a greasemonkey bug to me! Like this one:

We can probably come up with some workaround though.

It's actually because it ends in *.js
A greasemonkey bug, I talked to Brian about it, and he was ok to mark this as invalid for LH.
