Windows 2000 + Windows XP with Firefox 1.0

I noticed this recurrent problem this morning. Clicking on links in the New Posts or Forum lists leads to an 'unresolved' HTML page, as in the following screen capture. This seems inconsistent in that sometimes the linked page is resolved without problem.

Andrew,

Next time that happens hit the Ctrl-F5 key combo to force a refresh and see if it shows the code again please.

Thanks

This problem is coming up again, intermittently, and persistently this morning. What is the issue? No F5 panaceas please.

Thanks.

Probably a MIME-type issue. Sometimes a misconfigured or otherwise misbehaving (possibly intermittently) server will send an incorrect MIME-type in the HTTP header, which may make your browser misbehave in this way. IE may not have the issue because it tends to ignore what the server sends it for the type of the data and tries to render it anyway.

Could be an issue with the web host (or possibly a Firefox bug).

Thanks for the response. I was wondering if it was a caching issue or time-out or something....
