As far as I know it's a problem with Safari mis-reporting one of its 
features and Bugzilla trusting that a little too much which results in 
the file downloading instead of displaying.


Fixing this in Bugzilla seems to require just flipping a flag since 
there are other supported browsers with the same behavior. I mentioned 
this to the RunRev staff and they said they would check out new 
versions of Bugzilla (the main Bugzilla site worked for me when I tried 
it using Safari) but they may have run into other snags since it is not 
fixed yet. There is a patch at the above link...maybe they need a 
little more prompting. :)

As a workaround you can use Mozilla with Bugzilla. (I'd use Mozilla all 
the time, but I don't like the non-native widgets.)
