Firefox when you get a blank page, if you click view source it will show all
the code that should be there but, I can't tell if it's requesting the page

always fix it. When you look in firebug there is no html so it leads me to
believe FF may be doing just that...going for a second request instead of
viewing currently opened source? In IE8 I would get something like

this problem can be caused by a variety of issues..this is a completely
typical M$ error with no valid help
