User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Firebird 0.7 does not honor my CSS on my ISP's incorrectly configured and ancient Apache (1.1.1), but every other browser I tested (Mozilla 1.5; Opera 6.06, 7.03; IE 5.5, 6.0) DOES honor it. The page is <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> and has been validated (http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jpsdomain.org%2Fabout.html). The CSS has also been validated, which is how I found what I think is the root cause (bad MIME type). When run from a different ISP (and locally) the same HTML and CSS code works in Firebird and all other tested browsers. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Browse to http://www.jpsdomain.org/about.html = CSS broken 2. Browse to http://www.speakeasy.org/~vossenjp/about.html = CSS works 3. This shows valid CSS: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.speakeasy.org%2F%7Evossenjp%2Fjpsdomain.css&warning=1&profile=css2&usermedium=all 4. This shows "I/O Error: Unknown mime type : text/plain": http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jpsdomain.org%2Fjpsdomain.css&warning=1&profile=css2&usermedium=all Actual Results: CSS not honored by Firebird. Expected Results: Ideally, Firebird should honor this, even though it's technically broken. I'd like to ask my ISP to fix this, but I'll wait a while in case the broken configuration is useful for testing (let me know). I don't have high hopes for a successful fix anyway from them anyway... :-(
broken mimetypes cause all sorts of nasty problems. As a note, this is technically INVALID, and can be replicated in Mozilla 1.7a nightly from a couple weeks back and current 0.8 branch builds of Firebird
If you change the doctype of the page to drop Mozilla into quirks mode, this problem will ago away. See http://www.mozilla.org/docs/web-developer/quirks/doctypes.html and http://www.mozilla.org/docs/web-developer/quirks/quirklist.html. IMO, Mozilla should accept CSS with any mime type regardless of the doctype of the page. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 156145 ***

Verified dup, and imo Jesse's opinion in comment 2 doesn't really matter as long as dbaron, Ian, and I agree that our current behavior is what we want....
