Strange Firefox 3 Error

Version 3.0.3 to be exact.
Error content:

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

Can anybody using Firefox please see if you get the same error (click here) and post results in the comments?
(Please ignore the content on that blog, I’m revamping it for classroom use)
Other browsers seem to be unaffected. Clearing the cache didn’t help. Resetting Prefs didn’t help. Burning joss sticks and mumbling to the Buddha didn’t help.. And I’m not using a proxy. Hmm…
This is very curious: Opening the directory produces the error.
However, specifying the index file does not.

UPDATE: I just moved over to my laptop; Firefox updated to version 3.0.4 and is having no problems with the link, so… Good. But weird.

  1. About 4 weeks ago, I also began to get weird error messages when trying to sign onto Firefox after uploading 3.03. I got blocked out like you did.
    I went into So. Coast Plaza Apple Store to get help. No use. I ended up having them remove Firefox all together. Should I go back to the older version maybe?

  2. I don’t use 3.03 but it’s fine in these browsers:
    Safari 3.1.2
    Firefox experimental “Minefield” version 3.1b2pre
