Description Marcel Froissart 2006-01-19 16:16:44 UTC
If I try to modify or create an article on (fr)Wikipedia, on 1.0.6 Firefox,
either from my Unix tektro server ( and, or
from my Windows portable, I get the question 
"You  have chosen to open index.php which is a : PHP file
from : What should Firefox do with this file ?
¤ Open with  [ Browse... ]
¤ Save to Disk                  [ Cancel ]  [  OK   ]
This occurs '''only''' for (fr)articles, not for (fr)sections, nor for (en)
or (de)articles. I didn't find any solution by browsing. If I save, I get the
following index.php :

Type=Edit text ;  Engine=MediaWiki   ;  Script= 
Server=  ;  Path=/w 
Special namespace=Special

You turned on the "external editor" option in your preferences. Turn it back off.
