I keep getting the message "The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it is contained in a file type that may not be safe to open. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

This happens with a company's website that I am currently working for and I need to check mail, messages, notices via their website. Accessing their website does not seem to be a problem for Internet Explorer 6. Is there some setting in Firefox (I am now using 3) to work around this?

Thanks,

Doug

Moving to Thunderbird Builds, where support for pre-release versions is provided.

Um... I think this is a Firefox 3 Problem..... Moving on to Firefox Support...

Enough with the jokes and mis-direction of where to post. Does anyone have answers as to what the error message means and how to circumvent? I find that if I ignore the alert and close the dialogue by hitting "okay", I am able to view my email just fine. It is just that every time I choose a message to read, I get the "alert" dialogue that I then have to close.

Thanks,

Doug

Are you having a laugh (is he having a laugh?). NO--this is appears to be a Firefox problem. I go into the company's website and log on to their system with my username and end up at a screen where my list of emails show up. If I double click an email to open it that is when I get the alert. I ignore the alert and the email opens just fine. I want to eliminate the alert or change whatever setting is within Firefox that triggers the alert.

I probably should have added that when I go to the company's website and click email, it takes me to a Lotus Domino Web Access page that is sort of like a PIM application with emails, calendar, to-do list, contacts, etc. It is while checking emails from this page that I get the alert.

Doug,

Same issue here, I haven't been able to find a solution either. For others on this forum who would think it is related to Thunderbird, please understand that it is completely unrelated. The issue occurs when I use Firefox to access to my company's intranet through an encrypted connection. Among other things, this connection provides access to a webmail service.

Just wondering if there had been any progress made on this issue. I have the same problem and this is the only place I have this particular message referenced. Thanks for any info you can provide.
