From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i386; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020313 BuildID: 2002031312 When browsing through a few sites using CSS, Mozilla can "forget" the linked CSS stylesheet and from that moment on, displays everything in browser default (which is very ugly). An example is the site http://www.bluelight.nu/ with stylesheet http://img.bluelight.nu/layout/s.css (mimetype checked: text/css). After browsing a page or ten, twenty, the stylesheet disappears and the fonts start looking ugly. I view the s.css file in Mozilla when the rendering goes wrong. To my surprise Mozilla asserts its contents are (verbatim): <html><body></body></html> This is what Mozilla now thinks is in my s.css file, and this is not CSS, so that's why the rendering goes wrong! Now when I refresh the s.css file from the network by hitting Shift-Reload, the REAL contents of the CSS file are suddenly being displayed! Subsequently, all web pages using the s.css stylesheet are displayed properly. I have the feeling that this is no a rendering problem but probably a network/cache fluke. It appears that a CSS stylesheet file (maybe other elements as well) in the cache gets its contents *replaced* by a file saying "<html>.." I can test some more (e.g. without caches, using a proxy, etc) if needed. If this bug was posted in the wrong category, sorry. :) Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Visit www.bluelight.nu 2.Browse around for 10-15 pages Actual Results: contents of the linked CSS file in cache are replaced by phoney file "<html><body></body></html>" Expected Results: Either keep the *good* CSS file in the cache, or reload it from the network. :) Mozilla 2002031312, Linux binary
A similar thing seems to happen to images. After a few minutes of browsing, suddenly an image does not come up, this happened for instance with the image http://img.bluelight.nu/ubb/icons/icon25.gif. When navigating to the gif's url in the location field, Mozilla does not display the contents gif file, but says its contents are (verbatim): http://img.bluelight.nu/ubb/icons/icon25.gif Yes a text string! Repeated to make more clear: Mozilla's cached copy of this object is no longer a gif file, but a text file containing a *string* with the location in it. Shift-Reload on the gif file refreshes it from the network and subsequently all pages containing a reference to this gif file are rendered properly.

Can't reproduce on 2002032521 Linux Nightly build.
I've installed the 2002032606 and will see how it goes.
Same problem on 2002032606. It took me about 30 minutes of browsing though. Right now the images on http://www.google.com/ suffer from the syndrome.
This bug now also affected plain html files, i.e. I would browse to http://www.lemis.com/, then return to the same page later to see it replaced with: <html><body></body></html> A reload does not solve it, a Shift-Reload does. 2002032606

This can happen if you try to run more than one instance of mozilla at the same time ... I've seen the behaviour you describe happen, but not in the past week.
Have seen it in 0.9.9 and 1.0 rc2 (2002051009), the rc1 seemed not to have the problem.
can you reproduce this with 1.1beta?
Problem does not seem to appear in 1.1beta! :)
