Hi all

e.g. ask for '' but get '' instead.

If we reload the page immediately it comes up correctly but wait too long and it goes wrong again.

It does this 30 - 40+ times a day! 

Only firefox seems to have this problem. I tried adding 'www' to the front so above would become '' This worked fine for a day or 2 then it started going wrong again. The content of the web page makes no difference - I substituted a 3 byte file for a problem page so it only contained 'abc' = no markup at all and it STILL went wrong.

actual typed url: actual page seen:

are there any settings to adjust? I have not touched about:config I swear (yet!)

Thanks very much

I had no problem with;

You are not logged in. Login, Sign up or Contact the administrator

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?

Thanks for your suggestion.

I tried safe mode but the problem is still there (This is at home)

Also use firefox at work = same problem also my father uses firefox on his website = same problem.

You say you had no problem accessing the .php page but the problem only surfaces after a few days of repeated access - see my comment re 'www' added above, so how can u tell?

ps the was only a made up example!

Any other suggestions? Thanks
