hello lowell,

i don't think this has anything to do with versions.
i have tried many versions of forecastfox from on 
several 1.7.x versions of mozilla and i have tried it on the same 
versions of mozilla on freebsd and gentoo and winxp. it worked ok 
everytime and everywhere except on freebsd.
therefore i suspect there might be an issue in freebsd mozilla/seamonkey 
port or an issue in forecastfox that is run into on freebsd only.

what do you say? or am i missing something here?

many thanks,
