XF 1.4 Board inactive not show the message

That looks remarkably like the contents of an image file being rendered as text.

In you admin area, go to tools -> file health check

This will most likely reveal some files that have not been uploaded properly.

Hope this helps

I'd say you have a server misconfiguration somewhere. Personally, in this instance I would open a support ticket.

It can likely be worked around by disabling gzip within XF in config.php though. It's unclear why it would only happen on some pages, though I have seen something similar happen in a couple other cases.

I did try disabling gzip in Firefox yesterday (when the issue was present) but it made no difference.
