  • It happens to me with Mozilla 1.5 on Windows. It seems to happen only with URLs that end in slash, but I don't know what the other contributing factors are.
  • No problems with w3m here.
  • It's not the site, but the browser, I'm sure — either Mozilla, or it's derivates like Firefox.

    What I think is happening, is that for some reason the browser can't find the cached file, perhaps due through inconsistent URL to cached name conversion. I think it'll happen more on dynamic sites, which tell the browser not to cache its pages. Such as this one...(?)

    But, instead of doing the right thing and fetching the page from the web again, it just gives up and complains. Oh, well...

  • I've never used anything *but* firefox (and firebird before it) to read use.perl, and I've never seen that problem.

    It could be build-specific quirkiness...if you use nightlies you'll see a lot of transient problems, and sometimes even releases have them. /me shrugs
  • Firefox on Win2000 and also on Mandrake (9.2, I think). No problems on use.perl or any other site. (Plenty of other problems, like loss of keyboard focus when I open a PDF file inside Firefox, but those don't count ;)
