Default Strange behaviour from Firefox with php files

I have some very strange behaviour with Firefox on my laptop running Windows XP. Whenever I try to access this forum Firefox offers to either open forumdisplay.php or save it to disk for me. This is not universal behaviour. I have tested this against other php files on the desktoppublishingforum.com site and other sites and they work perfectly as expected.

This started to happen shortly after I updated Firefox (presumably from and upgraded Norton Internet Security to the 2007 version. But I can see nothing in the settings for either Firefox downloads or Norton which suggest php files should be downloaded.

I’m a little alarmed that it is possible to actually download a php file.

Searching with Google identifies one or two references to similar problems but no definitive solution.

Has anybody else come across this problem and more importantly a solution?

My Windows desktop PC running Firefox works perfectly. It runs Zone Alarm and AVG which may be the difference.
