file not found.jpg

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0
Build ID: 20170125094131

Steps to reproduce:

open and you will see that fire fox read the website as a local file and he can't found it 

if you try add modam3r to link like this now you will see "Server not found"

Actual results:

in normal if try visit a website and it not exist or stop working will see response that tell you server not found or something like that but in this case when i pen-test a twitter company used firefox and visit it show something different " file not found " will that should not be a good response cuz this not file it website .
now if try visit  you will see a normal response tell this site not found 

Expected results:

it should not show a Unacceptable response that can make a user hard to understand over your browser 
this test on chrome, edge all of theme show error server not found only your browser show file not found

The website says:
HTTP/1.1 410 Gone
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Date: Mon, 06 Mar 2017 13:11:00 GMT
Server: nginx/1.6.0
Content-Length: 57
Connection: keep-alive

Google Chrome shown an error page with ERR_INVALID_RESPONSE.

Microsoft Edge is received the 410 error but show an error message " has shutdown -" from the site through unknown source.

"Server not found" is domain name as not found from DNS server.

I agree the error message looks confusing but I don't see any evidence of a security problem.
