I found that opening ".fa" and ".fa.fai" for Indexed fasta files works fine, but if the names are ".fasta" and ".fasta.fai" then it doesn't really work. Bug applies to both web based and desktop versions, but in the web the sequence track is just empty, and in desktop it throws an silent error when you hit the "Open" button

The issue is probably slightly complicated since the ".fasta" passes filters and creates the track config, but then seems to fails at some other stage (i.e. it's not simply that we didn't plan for allowing .fasta in first place)
