I'm trying to control a display based on the values in http_accept. But when I'm running with IE6 and display the values within http_accept I only get */*
When I run it with Firefox I get a normal list of values.
Can anyone suggest what's happening?
Firefox shows the correct HTTP_ACCEPT value because it was making a SINGLE request on my perl script. Now, for a reason that still I don't understand IE is making TWO requests on the same file, first logged requests shows a full HTTP_ACCEPT field with values, second logged requests shows a */*.
Why is IE making two requests on the same file?
I tried doing GET's directly from a Unix commmand prompt, then with Firebox and they all behave correctly! only IE hits the script twice for no reason! is this a IE bug?
