Description

17 years ago
It may not be a bug, but I've seen this with mozilla .6 and Netscape 6 and the
old netscape under linux on this one page (URL above). Netscape 4.75 for windows
used to just ignore it, so maybe if you could tell me what's causing it, we can
get either the browser or the HTML on the page fixed.

Go to the page with mozilla 0.6. There are three ads arranged horizontally,
except it wont display the one on the left, just a dialog box that says
"application octet-stream can not be displayed," then save or open. It also has
a check box which is checked, but greyed out. If I could uncheck the box it
would probably stop irritating me, so that's a bug in the browser as far as I'm
concerned. On the other hand, if you could just tell me what about that little
ad on the left is causing it, I'll get Chet to fix that, though you'll still
have the greyed checkbox problem to deal with.

Thanks

The iframe in question has
src="http://www.portalofevil.com/banners/3/content120x60.x"

Trying to get the URL by hand:

~% telnet www.portalofevil.com 80
Trying 63.172.199.59...
Connected to www.portalofevil.com (63.172.199.59).
Escape character is '^]'.
GET /banners/3/content120x60.x HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Microsoft-IIS/4.0

ETag: "544860205c60c01:70a0"

So www.portalofevil.com needs to fix their broken web server (or maybe broken
CGI) to return content-type: text/html

Mozilla is doing exactly what it should be given those headers from the server.
 So as a Mozilla bug this is probably INVALID.

ie5 gets this right, we fail (maybe correctly so) but I'll let the folks in
Networking make that call.
