How is your Firefox configured to handle that mime-type?

Firefox will prompt (or act) based upon what it knows to do with the
mime-type provided. If it doesn't know what to do with text/url, it
will do as you described. Which means that other people will have the
same behavior - you can't tell everyone to reconfigure their browser
to work with your repository.

Is your file truly text? What is the "standard" mime-type for this
type of file? Windows shortcuts are NOT plain text (try opening it in
Notepad), so text/* is not an appropriate mime-type.
