Description JJ 2006-08-21 08:20:42 UTC
When trying to view or edit pages I am sometimes prompted to download the page
instead of viewing it normally. This is intermittent but happens about 1 out of
every 10 page hits. 
I have enabled, then disabled the "Use External Editor" option but that did not
fix the issue.
Comment 1 JJ 2006-08-21 08:31:39 UTC
FreeBSB 6.1-REL. Apache/2.2.3 (Unix) PHP/5.1.4 mod_ssl/2.2.3 OpenSSL/0.9.7e-p1,
MySQL 5.0.21
Comment 2 Rob Church 2006-08-21 11:11:04 UTC
Any difference in HTTP headers each time?
Comment 3 JJ 2006-08-21 19:38:17 UTC
I'm not sure how I could check that. The logs show nothing unusual, the page
hits that show the pages correctly and the page hits that prompt for download
are the same as far as I can tell.
Comment 4 JJ 2006-08-21 19:45:31 UTC
I noticed that the byte counts (number of bytes transfered) were different
between hits for the same page, but the wiki is being used over https, so I
think that is to be expected. 
Comment 5 JJ 2006-08-24 14:25:51 UTC
This problem does not seem to happen when using IE6, only Firefox 1.5.
Comment 6 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-08-24 14:27:04 UTC
Is the page gzipped?  If so, this is bug 7098.
Comment 7 Rob Church 2006-08-30 07:33:01 UTC
Making an educated guess that it's a dupe. If the download is not a gzipped HTML
page, please reopen this.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 7098 ***
Comment 8 JJ 2006-08-30 14:28:37 UTC
The pages are not gzipped.
Comment 9 Brion Vibber 2006-08-30 14:57:20 UTC
Please post a network trace; at least HTTP headers from Firefox's Live HTTP Headers extension 
should help.
Comment 10 JJ 2006-09-01 06:23:17 UTC
Apparently I stand corrected. Below are hits, the bottom one is ok, the top one
is when the page tried to download. The encoding says gzip for both. Freaking
great. And the bug that's marked fixed does me no good. I'm running vanilla
install on up to date software, no mention of what I need to change in my settings.

My observations:
- This only happens with English Wikipedia, not with the Norwegian one.
- It happens 100% of the time I try to edit a page, never when I try to edit a section.
- I've only tried editing articles with Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3.
Comment 12 Brion Vibber 2007-05-17 13:58:29 UTC
New commenter: turn off "use external editor" in your user preferences.

Unable to reproduce the bug this bug is about, and no comments in a long time; assuming original problem was a local crashing bug or other such problem. Reopen if original problem continues and further information is available to debug it.
Comment 13 Matt Wlazlo 2007-05-24 06:20:09 UTC
At my site we've been having similar problems and have traced it down to this PHP bug:
