Problem with letter case in URL

I know that some servers distinguish the difference between www.website.com/Contact and www. webstite.com/contact Unfortunately even if I click the 'Contact' link or copy it to the address bar, Firefox always interprets this as 'index' and the page is redirected to the main site on that server. What can be done to overcome this?

Can you post a real link to a site with that problem?

Does it help if you clear the cache or use "Clear Recent History" to clear the last hour?

It's a Polish website: http://lodz.gumtree.pl/c-Nieruchomosci-pokoj-pokoje-wynajme-pokoj-2osobowy-mieszkanie-studenckie-Lodz-ul-Komfortowa-W0QQAdIdZ305947465

I've got 2 computers, both on Windows 7 and Firefox 5 (tried 6 but it's the same) and on one it works but on the other all the letters are converted to lower case what makes the link useless.

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache.

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Cmd + Shift + R" (MAC)

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
