Content Encoding Error
Every so often for the past few days I've been getting the error message (also shown in the screenshot):

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

It's an intermittent problem and generally sorts itself out when I refresh the page. I cannot determine what is causing it, nor whether it is specific to my browser (Firefox 12.0).

Thanks for the heads up! Has anyone else noticed this issue? If so, please report what page you were trying to view and which browser you use. It may also be helpful to include which server you are on when you refresh. Thanks!

When I refreshed after the error, I was on Server 2. I'll see whether that's the case consistently.
Since no-one else is reporting the problem however, I'm starting to think it's probably just something odd with my set-up.

Have you tried upgrading to the latest Firefox? Not that it's related, but I noticed you mentioned v12 in the original post.

That's a good point actually. I've now done so, so I'll see whether the issue disappears.

Nope. Got the same error again of FF 13.1.
Oh well.

Is it only happening in Firefox? What antivirus, firewall, etc do you have that might be between your browser and our connection?

(FYI, I'm out of town this week, so I won't be checking in as often as usual. Please take no offense at slower than usual replies! )

I only use firefox.
It really doesn't really matter if no-one else is having the problem, certainly not enough to try to diagnose so intermittent a fault.
