Were you using Mozilla or Mozilla Firebird? The latter is a definite 
improvement over the former, especially on older hardware. Right now I'm

I even went so far as to create a comparison page:

You've probably set the file type text/html to open in a separate viewer 
rather than embedded. Set it back to embedded. Known bug:
