The main page only contains a frame of
http://members.lycos.nl/dtraders/___________.htx

The MIME type for this is text/plain, not text/html.  Thus, either the authors
of what looks to be a not-so-good site need to use .html for lycos or lycos
needs to support .htx to be text.html.

Not a Mozilla/Firefox bug.

You beat me to it. I made the same changes but got the mid-air collision ;).

Anyways, I was going to suggest that maybe we should do better content-type
sniffing (which is what I assume IE does to display that page). That could be
filed as another bug, but it would resolve this problem.

The content-sniffing is a security issue that Microsoft refuses to acknowledge.
 Web pages have mime types for a reason, and displaying a page as a different
mime type than it's advertised as is a dangerous business.  This is the entire
reason that sending someone an executable file (virus) with an audio filetype
used to auto-run the executable on Windows without intervention from the user.

The resolution to this problem is to complain to the webmaster of the site and
get them to fix the page.  Their page is broken, it only works in IE because it
exploits a security hole in IE.

ok...thanks.

i'm going to use IE for this site.....

but i keep firefox for all others......more quick. :-))
Is there really a security risk in displaying text/plain as text/html if that's
what it looks like? Also, as far as I know, sending an executable with an audio
mime type would have that executable sent to the audio player as input, not
executed.
