What is InlineDisposition Reloaded?

InlineDisposition Reloaded is a Firefox extension that transforms the disposition type of 'Content-Disposition' response headers from 'attachment' and 'file' to 'inline'. This permits the browser to view the file, if it's supported, rather than being forced to save it, as dictated by the server. This reloaded version also replaces 'file' unlike the original InlineDisposition extension.

Summary

InlineDisposition Reloaded changes the disposition type of "Content-Disposition" response headers from "attachment" and "file" to "inline"; this prevents servers from forcing the browser to save a file and allows that file to be viewed in the browser, if the browser supports it. Original InlineDisposition extension from Kai Liu (link in homepage) replaces only "attachment", not "file".
