Show .reg files as plain text (BB-12736)

      Description

      I have a .reg file (Windows Registry Entries) in a repo that stores application settings.

      The containing folder lists the file called "default_settings.reg".

      When I click the file name, I expect to see the content of the reg file presented as plain text, like a .txt file.

      The current actual behaviour depends on the web browser.

      Chrome renders the content of the file as part of the page, so the plain text formatting is lost. All lines run together. This is inconvenient, because the file is unreadable.

      Internet Explorer prompts me to download or run the file. This is dangerous, because it makes it easy to accidently apply the registry settings.

      Could you update the source browser to present .reg files as plain text?
