Anyone out there use Firefox?

Steph sent me an email about something she encountered when trying to link into the site:

Content Encoding Error

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

Anyone getting similar messages?

We get 10-15% or so of our traffic from Firefox browsers, so if any of you come across something like this, please let me know.

Oh, and if you have an idea on what to do to fix it, I'd be all ears, too. :p

I've never had a problem with this site using Firefox. I'm sure I've linked to it several times as well. I have zero idea how to fix it.

Seems like a problem with Firefox 3. You may want to ask her to clear her cache and/or try the Ctrl-F5 trick to see if that fixes it.

I've been on Firefox 3 for awhile and haven't run into any problems here.

I have both Firefox and IE and home and office. I've yet to experience a problem with the site on either browser, although I'm not using the latest browser for either one.

Keith, it is probably a good idea to have both browsers on your pc so you can check how the site looks/functions on each. It's what I do with AstrosDaily. There are subtle differences that can drive you crazy, particularly on the html level (Firefox is more forgiving than IE about the sequencing of commands, for example).
