Re: Firefox + VNC links

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Yes, that is what I am guessing is happening.....do you know of any way to change what Firefox passes in this situation?
I have tried on a couple Firefox forums, and noone seems to have an answer...so I thought I would try this list again.

Thanks for the help!
