Many - especially scientific - sites publish in postscript
(.ps) format. I always have to save these files to my local
harddisk, before I can open them in ggv.

Has anybody worked out, how these files can be rendered directly
via mozilla?
I tried to put ggv into the "view with application ..."  dialog.
This will start ggv, but it can't fetch the file from the
remote server. I also tried gs, but that will crash immediatly.
acroread should be able to do this, but frequently complains
about defect .ps code.

Any more ideas?
