how to show python code as text
Some docs pages show python source code, e.g. http://matplotlib.org/pyplots/pyplot_simple.py. I would like to see the code as a text file in Firefox, but am only given the option to download the file. How can I change this?

The problem is that the server is sending a content type of "application/octet-stream" with the file, which generically identifies binary content that Firefox cannot display. (See screenshot.)
As a workaround, you can prepend the URL with view-source: to show the file contents in a tab. One less-than-convenient way is:
- Ctrl+click or right-click the link to direct it to a new tab
- Cancel the download dialog
- Type or paste view-source: at the beginning of the URL and press Enter to load it
