Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204
BuildID:    2002020415

On every other browser I have tried besides mozilla (Netscape, Konqueror,
Galeon), I see white text on a black background with the words, "the Truth is
out there...". I'm told this URL works in IE 6.0 as well. When I try visiting
the URL in mozilla, it brings up a download dialog asking me if I want to
download a "binary executable", and gives a filename like "rq1cca6o.exe" if I
continue with the download. If I inspect this downloaded file, it is NOT and
executable, but rather contains ASCII text that is the HTML that would generate
"the Truth is out there..." in white text on a black background.

This URL works as I would expect http://www.glenngodden.com to:
http://www.glenngodden.com/Default.htm

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://www.glenngodden.com

Sorry for testing with an old release.
