It'd not Mozilla that's doing something wrong. Mozilla simply sends a GET request and downloads
what Apache sends. It's completely up to Apache todecide wether to send the file or execute

That said, I'd still suggest that you use wget or some other non-caching utility for testing.
Forgetting the browers cache is a common problem when troubleshooting web server issues. When
using any caching browser, make sure you force it to reload the page every time, otherwise
it will just show you the cached resut and you'll see the problematic page even if it's actually
fixed in the server.
