Firefox must be incorrectly handling MIME types.

 

Any reason why not update to the latest Firefox 81?

I have installed Firefox 69.0 on a Windows Sandbox to test and had no problems. I suppose the corporate policy is interfering with some MIME types and causing some scripts to break.

I think @thewabbit means he got the same Download as behaviour, not that he got an update to FX 80 (different from OP).

Happens to me as well. Running Firefox 79.0. On a corporate image so can't update.

 

I know we are behind Fortinet Fortiguard web filtering, not sure if that would be causing it.

Interesting - I'm pretty sure we're behind Fortinet too.
