Firefox is displaying HTML instead of rendering it ... IE and Chrome show the rendered page ... what's wrong?

Posted

For some reason, firefox has started displaying RAW HTML when I navigate to a web site instead of rendering it. IE and Chrome are both rendering normally. What would cause this to start happening? Sometimes, pressing F5 fixes the problem, sometimes not. Sometimes I'll go to the same page the next day and everything is OK.

Furthermore, it has known bugs and security problems. I urge you to update to the latest version of Firefox, for maximum stability, performance, security and usability.
