You should be able to open MIME HTML files (*.mht) natively with Internet Explorer and Opera. For other browsers I think you need an add-on.

Strange, I have no problems in opening standard MHT files with Opera. If you save a normal web page as *.mht, can you open it later with Opera or IE?

For the sake of testing, I saved this page as mht file, both as mht and mhtml, and atteched it to this post (see below).
I can open both files with Internet Explorer and Opera (and Firefox with the addon called UnMht).

Can you open them too?

Hello longshanks,

In addition, you might see if downloading and merging the .reg file for the listed .mhtml option in the tutorial below may be able to help. It will restore the default associations and registry entries for this file type.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Seriously? this is the full url of my link above:
Code:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MHTML
It's the english wikipedia page for MHTML. And the zip contains two different kinds of mhtml files saved from that same source.

If you had issues opening either I would say there is something weird going on there. Can you explain more in detail what does mean "flashing like mad" and when did happen?

Just to confirm, I downloaded the ZIP you posted and had no issues in opening both MHTML files with both IE and Opera.
