Go to the URL: http://nytw.org/flash/information.asp On my Mozilla (1.0 RC1) it will not display this page. Instead, it will bring up a "Download File" dialog to save the file "information.asp" on my hard drive. This is confusing because other asp pages seem to work fine. NB - all working asp pages I have been able to confirm are over SSL. I don't know if this is relevant. Page displays as expected in IE 5, Netscape 4.7, and Opera 3.21 and 5.01.
To evangelism. The site just sends the wrong MIME type (application/octet-stream instead of text/html). Oh, and this page does not work for me in NS4.7 either -- I get the save as dialog.
I think this bug should be solved. MS IIS defaults to the MIME type of application/octet-stream for ASP files. A lot of administrators don't know anything about MIME types and refuse to change their MIME type for ASP files. Since the Helper Application settings of Mozilla does not allow users to edit file extensions of the text/html MIME type th pages cannot be viewed within Mozilla. Isn't is possible to add an user-interface where an user can add/remove file extensions to/from the text/html MIME type in the Helper Applications settings in order to get those ASP's displayed. Here's another url that doesn't open within Mozilla. Mozilla instead asks to open/ save the ASP-file. Look at http://www.exact.nl
