Note that that header is syntactically incorrect; it should not have
double-quotes around the value. If you do:

Content-Disposition: inline;

(except not line-wrapped like that) then it might work in Safari as
well. (The Safari devs might consider this a bug anyway given that it
works with the quotes in Firefox though.)
