Happy New Year to one and all,

Can someone please help me. I am trying to get CGI scripts to execute on the localhost through FireFox, I have win2k using IIS, everytime I run a script I either get a prompt to save the script or the source code is displayed in the firefox browser window, has anyone else experienced this.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com], sunburstyello.

It sounds like a mime-type problem. Does the same script work when using IE? In the CGI script, are you explicitly specifying the mime-type of

for the output? Finally, are you using a doctype on the output page, and does it make a difference if you remove it?
