Hi there,
I haven't seen other posts about this, so I am curious if anyone else has experienced this -
When I do a google search using the toolbar or regular google search, and using firefox, searches are now displaying the page "source code" for the google search. I have to "refresh" to get the page to load correctly. Does anyone else have this problem, and any solutions out there? I have had this happen with version 1.5 and 2.0.
Thank you, and happy holidays to everyone!

What you describe sounds pretty unusual. Have you got any extensions loaded with your installation of Firefox? It may be a rogue or broken extension which is causing mime type inconsistencies.
