Everybody who uses Flare to make WebHelp...

I sent the message below several weeks ago.

Since that time, a flurry of activity on the part of Neal (and others)
at Madcap has resulted in some rework by the Firefox people, and
apparently the GA version of Firefox 3 no longer has a problem browsing
WebHelp that is served locally.

I know you were all holding your breath waiting for that announcement.
