This can be an error on the server or Firefox. Do you get this always or only sometimes ? Do you use a proxy, Do you use a firewall which modifies the content ? Can you reproduce this with Firefox running in the Firefox safemode ? - http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

The error seems to fixed when running in the safe mode. It may be an issue with one of the addons. I encountered this error only twice in 10 years :). I don't use proxy neither do I use a firewall that changes my content.

Difficult to test if you got this only twice in 10 years. A few Php installations are also sending the wrong content type if the page is overloaded and that results in such a download dialog.
marking wfm Please reopen if you have steps to reproduce :-) This is usually a server issue, it sends the wrong content-type and you will not see this with IE because it does content sniffing
