17 Getting a “Content Encoding Error” message in Firefox?

Jun 3rd, 2008   3:07 pm

I, and others, have been getting a “Content Encoding Error” message with the text “The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression” in Firefox 3 (beta versions and RC1).

I didn’t investigate the cause, but a simple workaround is to disable the Firefox cache and re-visit the site. Not ideal, but it’ll get you by.
