How is it accomplished?
Yes. I have three computers (home, work, laptop). All three of them have both Firefox and OOo installed. I would suspect that you've hit some obscure version issue. I make it a point to try to keep all three of these machines updated, so I'm portupgrading them on a regular basis. I seem to remember one point at which I rebuilt OOo and had to rebuild firefox to get it working, but I don't remember for sure. -- Bill Moran Someting happened or something. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
