I have no idea what is wrong with my site.. it looks right in IE looks right in Opra (all but the Join link does not show the green scroll bar) but in Mozilla it just shows jibberish all over the place, kind of like text and raw code or something. The site is @ http://etd1.freeprohost.com/ please feel free to take a look. if anyone has some idea of where to read or what to do about it not working in Fox please let me know. Thank you.
P.S I think / hope this is the right place to post this. ...............................
......................................EDIT.................................. I use wsftp pro. and the site was made with dreamweaver mx 2004. I will edit the Title also .. of this post. I will post a screen shoots of Fox here, and the version of fox I am using is version 0.9.3 (think i need to upgrade that lol) also you will never beleave this one, but after I took the screen shots, mozilla showed the site correct on the refresh. lmao. --- The screen shoots are from the Download and the Forums links on the site. note that the Forums has a flash banner that show nothing but code also. but as i just found out if yuo refresh your fox browser it all is fine. hmmm strange to anyone but me? think i coverd everyones question's.. Thank you again.... Brain
......................................... EDIT..............................................

1. I have no idea what the hell happened to your code, but when I view source EVERYTHING is garbled. The code, the everything. Do you have some wacky virus-type-thing affecting your files or FTP? I'm not sure why that site would work in IE, but if it does, I can only say that your site is the work of the devil; IE being the devil's web browser.

2. Please, please, please... take a look at the posting guidelines (http://www.codingforums.com/postguide.htm) the next time you post a question. We are all offering our free time to help you, so the least you can do is give us some helpful information and not destroy the forum searches. A descriptive title, information leading to the problem, a more thorough description of the problem, etc.

That being said, I dunno. What are you using to save/send the files over to your host?

The source looks fine to me, that is I can see it, it is far from fine..
I'm using Firefox 0.9.3.

hmm I'm running FF 1.0 Mac and I'm not seeing any problems at all. Rmedek, I have noticed that firefox occasionally bungles the view source option, it drives me nuts, but its not the owner's fault. As for your problem, I'm not seeing it at all. What version of firefox are you using? Can you post a screenshot of the problem?

Everything looks alright for me (FF 1.0).

This is what I get when I view source (see attachment). So far it's the only site that's done this for me :confused:

I added soem stuff to the post at the top per-request of tho's kind enough to take a look at my prob. thank you very much if there is anything else please let me know. thank you.

wow rmedek, thats nothing like the kind of firefox errors i get. That definitely looks server side.. Aoetd, I suggest you get a new hosting service, or at least copy your pages to a new host to see if they turn out any better. I wouldnt know, but could this be a gzipping error? anyways, definetely try a different host...just get a free disposable one...doesnt matter if it has ads or anything. Contact your hosting company...

Ahhhhh.. much better. Thanks!
According to this new description, it certainly seems like a server-side thing. That is, files are being garbled on your host, before they get to the browser, at least as far as I can tell. I agree with Jalenack, I'd take a look at a new host.

Thank you all and sorry that I did not post enough information at first to make it a bit easer rmedek. I am looking at free hosting now tring to sign up for one to test and see if it is the server. thank you again ... Brain
