I agree with the previous comment, and anyway it would be the first 
thing to check.
For each browser, there exist plugins/add-ons which allow you to see 
what exactly the server is sending as HTTP headers together with the 
page itself.
(For Firefox, see HttpFox; for IE, try Fiddler2).
Once installed, activate the relevant plugin. That will create an 
additional window which shows the HTTP headers going out and coming in.
Then go back to the main window, and access your application until you 
get such a case.
Then switch to the plugin window, and see which HTTP headers the server 
sent together with that page.
One of them will be the "Content-type" header.
