Debian / Apache2 / PHP5 / Firefox not parsing locally

I have just setup a Debian box, running Apache/2.0.54 (Debian GNU/Linux) PHP/5.2.0-0.dotdeb.2 with Suhosin-Patch mod_perl/1.999.21 Perl/v5.8.4 Server - I am using it to serve up a small PHP webpage locally. Everything is the latest available upgrades.

Now - if I access this from a windows XP laptop with Internet Explorer, everything's fine. If I use Firefox from the same laptop, then it insists on downloading the PHP file instead of parsing it. If I access a PHP file over the internet with Firefox or IE - it parses as it should.

I can't even decide if this is a server or a Firefox issue right now! Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Healed up on its own...

Thanks for the input J-Ray - I have the cache set to zero, but I guess it still stores some things. The problem magically disappeared anyway, so the cache answer makes sense!

I have some other weird things to sort through too - right now (on the same two machines) I'm getting an IP from the Debian DHCP server on the windows laptop, but it insists that the DHCP server address is - should be - that doesn't seem to be causing any other problems, just makes me a bit nervous!
