Why does Firefox only display XML data when I open an SVG file?

First ensure the following:

  • Using version 1.5 or greater
  • Compiled SVG support (By Default: Enabled)
  • File is clean and viewable via another application

If all of the above are true then you have most likely found a bug. The most common issue is corrupt or improperly formated SVG files.

I like to use IrfanView to check my SVG files before accusing Firefox of dropping the ball.
