I was trying to download software from Apple's Web Site using Firefox (so I
could leave cookies on) what I got was a page full of garbage. The download
worked fine with Safari.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. surf to:
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/development_tools/sql4xmanagerj.html
2. Click on the download button at the bottom of the right collumn
3. Prepare for garbage

Actual Results:  
Thousands of garbage characters scrolled down a new window.

Expected Results:  
The downloads manager should have opened.
The website serves the page as text/plain so firefox displays it as such
