It shouldn't have any problems reading a php script as plain text but like any other web browser it won't parse it.

PHP is a recursive acronym for PHP Hypertext Preprocessor. The 'Pre' part of this refers to the fact that the PHP portions of a webpage are processed by the server before they are served to a client such as Mozilla. So if you use Mozilla to open a *.php page from a server, the page will appear as expected or intended. However, if you open a local file with Mozilla (or any browser), the PHP portions of the page will be ignored.
