'Save to disk' is checked, and I can either cancel or save, but I can't open the page. I have the same problem with Camino except it automatically opens the page with Internet Explorer. (My default browser is Safari) I've tried it several time with both browsers and have now trashed several copies of the home page off my desktop. I have five browsers available so I can check my website with each one. I'm hoping to completely eliminate Internet Explorer, but I need Firefox and/or Camino first. Venita http://homepage.mac.com/venitar/home.html Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Firefox or Camino 2.Go to http://homepage.mac.com/venitar/home.html 3. Actual Results: As described above. Expected Results: The page should have opened.
fix your content type, it's currently "HTML", it needs to be text/html
Sorry about that rude comment. Also, I was wrong, it's currently application/octet-stream. Firefox just shows "HTML" because it uses the filetype when it doesn't know what it is (that's what application/octet-stream is, the server doesn't know what filetype your file is). I would highly suggest validating your page to find any obvious errors, right now it can't validate it due to this. http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fhomepage.mac.com%2Fvenitar%2Fhome.html What should work to fix it: 1) Make a text file 2) place this line in it: AddType text/html .html 3) Upload this file to the webserver 4) Rename the file ".htaccess" Please note if you already have a .htaccess, just add the line to it.
This seems to be a problem caused by the transfer from your local system to your DotMac account.
