Does Firefox 34.0 Ubuntu canonical 1.0 process python3 files?
I have a simple python .py file in the server's html directory, but accessing it via localhost gets me only -the window asking what I want Firefox to do with the file.
Does your localhost have Python installed? I think that would help in making sure your localhost and your "real" server will deliver the same results.
Python is installed on my localhost. I can use it in a terminal window, but I think you provided the explanation as to why it does not work when I call it in Firefox.
You might just need to add something to your localhost webserver's config files to point it to the python interpreter. But I have no idea how you do it.
