	Further details:

 1) The Mozilla bug for XSMP support is:

    I guess people should go vote for the bug and make blizzard fix 
    it :P

 2) If you save the session with firefox and smproxy, firefox gets 
    saved into the session with "firefox-bin" as the restart command. 
    That clearly doesn't work since firefox-bin isn't in $PATH.

    That means the "we need smproxy for Mozilla" is moot, since it 
    obviously doesn't work and no-one cares.

	Quite a number of people have said "just drop it now" - I'm certainly
not going to argue too strongly with that :-)
