Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0 does not load under Firefox (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009090216 Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.14). It can be loaded using elinks and wget.

The site raises 61 errors and 23 warnings when validated using the w3c tool. does load under Firefox (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009040909 CentOS/3.0.7-1.el5.centos Firefox/3.0.7). Both machines are similar and feed into the same network.

Microsoft has been helping to track down the problem. Originally we believed it to be a network problem, but given the fact that we can access the page using elinks, we have concluded that the problem lies with Firefox not recovering gracefully from one of the many errors in the site markup.
