Windows 7: IE9 wants to download xd_arbiter.css

10 May 2012   #1

Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
IE9 wants to download xd_arbiter.css

When I go to 2 specific sites( and my internet explorer asks me if I want to open or save xd_arbiter.css from
This started happening today,and is intermitent.
There's no other page that triggers this.
It's asking me whenever I reload the page,or go onto another page from that site.
I did ask for help from the runescape forums,but no capable moderators answered.

I think this is facebook's invasive cookies going berserk,as they alredy do more than they're supposed(they spy on us,run as fast as you can!).

Or it might be some malware...

Anybody have any ideas on what this is,if I should panic,and how to stop it?

Thanks in advance!

You are not alone (unless this is your posts :))

css is Cascading Style Sheets, it is part of a web page language usually used to set fonts and such. It should just display in the background, not prompt for download. Does the page display normally if you deny it? Do you have Firefox or another browser you can try that site in? A Guy

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Cause of xd_arbiter.css error

Facebook screwed up. This is part of their "Like" button and is occuring all over the internet. This is not a problem with anyone's computer. This is a problem with how they configured their component. I added a line to my hosts file because I was sick of seeing it and this disables the like button.

It was not malicious by the sound of it, but rather a coding problem on the site. Sounds like they corrected it. A Guy
