    Firefox fixes; Netscape and IE, too

    HKabaker Level 2
      I've updated a collect of patches that help improve the initial load and reloading of WebHelp, and correcti the display and behavior of the toolbar and minibar (also called the navigation bar). Mostly they help Firefox and Netscape. They also solve one or two problems in Internet Explorer.

      Except for the last patch below, I previously posted these in the forum, and Peter Grainge picked up several for his excellent RH troubleshooting site. I'm not repeating the earlier ones here, but will be happy to send a summary Word doc to anyone who sends me a private message.

      Adobe did make some housekeeping code changes in RH 6, but (as of the trial version) none of those suggested here except one for whtbar.js, as explained in the summary.

      The usual disclaimer: It works for me but I can't guarantee your results. Back up everything. Experiment on a small project or a minimized copy of the working project. I haven't tested these in RH 6, but a quick look at files in the trial version didn't find any likely problems. If you test them in RH 6, please report back either here or in a private message.

      Regards to all,
