Wow, I didn't think you could even do that anymore, but sure enough with 
my semi-modern Firefox, it still has that feature!  So there you go, 
whoever it was, you have lots of options now!


PS.  Brad, I didn't realize it was mythweb making those png's -- I 
haven't tried turning off the GeneratePreviewPixmaps setting to see if 
mythweb honours that, though,  have you?  I bet you are right, and I'd 
almost consider that a bug...  If it turns out you're right, of course!
