View Full Version : [kubuntu] Firefox: unable to post wordpress, ubuntuforums or OWA form

February 11th, 2009, 10:11 PM
Don't know what is going on here. I use wordpress as my blog and for my company I also have to use Outlook Web Access (OWA).

When I try to post something to my blog, or write an email with OWA with firefox the following happens:

- A long time nothing happens ;-)
- After that long loooooong time firefox asks me whether I want to open or save the post.php (for wordpress), newthread.php (for ubuntuforums) or some .eml file (for OWA).

I already tried the following:
- aptitude purge firefox && aptitude install firefox
- mv .mozilla .mozilla.old

and combinations of the above.

I personally think something with my mime types is broken, but I have no clue what package is responsible.

Any ideas?

Found the solution here (http://forums.vpslink.com/web-servers/2231-firefox-tries-download-my-php-files.html).

Seems that all you have to do is clear the cache.

As a last update: seems the D-Link router was at fault as well.
