It will look for the FF FE marker for Unicode files and I found that it was prepending UTF-8 files with this marker were it not present. Therefore when I customize the BMLogin page, even simple text changes, this file marker was added at the start of the file. Normally this has no effect, but when the page is served by the BorderManager mini webserver and viewed with the firefox browser, things broke ie. HTML source code is displayed. IE displays the page fine. If I make the edits in Notepad or DOS Edit then the custom page works fine. Because the Unicode file marker is not added to the file. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Customize the BorderManager login page using UltraEdit32 or use any HTML file that has the Unicode file marker (FF FE) 2.Attempt to authenticat to the proxy server using Firefox 3.HTML source code of the BMLogin page is displayed Actual Results: HTML source code of the BMLogin page is displayed and authentication is not possible. Expected Results: Authentication page should be displayed This problem is specific to an interaction between the Novell BorderManager mini web server and the Firefox browser and as such has a very limited scope.
