Kelly, Kelly, Kelly.

You have to specify which program you want to use to display .txt files
under OPTIONS/GENERAL PREFERENCES/HELPERS go down to the bottom of the
and select the text entry then instead of (unknown prompt user), put 
either (view in browser), or (launch application if you have a favorite
text editor)  You can do this with any type of file, just don't do it
with .exe, or .bat (always prompt for these, so you don't execute
idea of a prank)  Once you make this change here, it will always be in
force until revoked.
