User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20130806 Firefox/17.0 Iceweasel/17.0.8 (Nightly/Aurora)
Build ID: 20130806234539

Steps to reproduce:

When I am using some forum sites, often after some time, on clicking a link, "No Input File Specified" shows up and the page is not loaded.
I searched on the net for "No Input File Specified" and found that it happens with php redirection, but found no fixes.

Actual results:

So sometimes/mostly I load a page with php redirection, it shows "No Input File Specified". Tried refreshing the page many times but it doesnt load.
Solution I found was to restart firefox.

Expected results:

The page should have loaded without error.

Why do you think this is a problem that could be fixed in Firefox?

Because it is not present in another browser! Due to this problem I downloaded Midori, and the same page which shows, "No Input File Specified", is loaded correctly 
in the Midori.
And I would like to add that its quite irritating, because once this comes up I have to close Firefox and reopen it again, and I lose all the tabs that I was working on.
(Yeah I know I can recover them with restore previous session, but thats not the point).
And perhaps its a problem with some setting, because I use 2 versions of firefox, 17 and 23, and both have this issue.

What extensions do you have installed that might change links?  You can copy the list using a button at about:support.

Are you using a proxy?

When I had posted this bug I wasnt using any Extensions.

Nope, not using a proxy.

Perhaps its related to the network bandwidth/speed, becuase I remember I used to get it when my net speed was slow.

we do not have enough information that a developer can start to fix this.
