User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608 Firefox/0.8

For some reason, a few websites (well, that i've tested) are going mental.
www.deviantart.com
www.image-dump.com
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org
those three websites within mozilla firefox 0.9rc are garbled completely.

The following is a url showing you exactly what i mean by garbled.
http://www.image-dump.com/hattery/zilla-bork.gif

This seems to happen as i said, on websites that make use of CSS, or heavy CSS.

However, i've just tested with the css on image-dump.com, if i remove the css 
from the website completely, it still outputs garbage, so it seems that it 
might not be css related at all.

In short, i hvae no idea why it's happening

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to www.deviantart.com
2. it borks
3. cry

Actual Results:  
It produces the garbled string that i included in the screenshot above

Expected Results:  
Shown the website

I've looked at all the sites you included and everything displays fine on my end.

Have you tried with a clean profile?
looks like an encoding thing (view->character encoding should probably be
Western or UTF-8)

Yeah, with the 0.9 final, it shows up as chinese characters.
I tried with a new profile and that did the trick.
I guess it hated an extention or something in my previous profile.

Thanks for your time :)
