Browser stuck in loop when opening Markdown file

When i attempt to open any file ending in .md - even an empty file - the browser opens a new tab repeatedly, failing to ever render the file.

Ubuntu 20.04 Firefox 122.0.1

Settings > General > Applications: Content Type = Markdown Document Action = Open in Firefox

Extensions and Themes > Extensions None

As a workaround, I set Action = Save File for Content Type = Markdown Document. This allows me to stop the loop, but it never renders the document.

You should never select Firefox as the application to handle a file if you get an 'open with' dialog to download the file and never tick the box to do this automatically if you haven't verified that Firefox can handle this file.
