Exellent, it works perfectly (in my test, at least. I have yet to try it for for it's real purpose). I don't know why it didn't before, but whatever. Still, I may have another problem - is freenet portable? If I run the installer to install to a flash drive, put firefox-portable on that drive, write a batch script to start freenet and open firefox to 127.0.0.1:8888, will it work on another computer? (assuming that computer has java). It doesn't seem like freenet would _need_ any registry entries to function, but I'd like to be sure, and i'm not certain I'd catch everything if I did it myself.
