The following code, downloaded from a remote site does not display in Firefox 4 but does in all previous versions...

There are some problems with that code. Is this the whole thing?
Or is there more before and after?
A standard html page should have a tag and a tag before the <title> tag. <br> This whole section: </p><p>There were no additional plugins added when upgrading. </p></title> is after the end of the page (the ending tag).
Some older browsers (especially IE) are set up so that they can process broken HTML to some degree. Apparently, some of the problems with this are too bad for Firefox 4 to understand. But, they can be fixed, which is much better in the long run anyway.

If this is your page and this is all there is, just fixing what is missing, you would want something like this:

Sory, it ate my HTML when I posted it here

If it's not your page, perhaps you could e-mail the page owner and explain to them that they have problems with their HTML code?

Replying to my own question the fix was simple. This code was dynamically generated by code I wrote. The fix was a missing / at the end of the title block. <title> which should be </title>

Correcting only this solved the problem but I will further correct the improper HTML. This error went unnoticed when using prior Firefox versions.

Thanks, Doug
