in reply to Apache CGI Firefox IE7 Win32 "Bug?" (Solved)

Are you sure that IE7 does "save the perl file". This won't happen.

Maybe it's only a problem w/Mime types, IE7 thinks there is sth. to download (no proper content type sent by the perl script).

If you give the link a cgi-extension, IE7 might heuristically deduce that the content "should" be html.

    Now matter how flawed the http header from the browser, Apache should "know better" than to deliver the script. It's got to be some kind of configuration error. I hope.

      No way. Apache won't ever send the "Perl script" merely because of a broken browser request. The alleged "Perl script downloaded" will be an empty file or just the normal content saved under the name of the last part of the link.

      I think this post does say all. (Thanks for this one, anonymous).
