Err, I was just trying to explain why it worked in Mozilla and  
Firefox before, and now stopped working in Firefox but still works in  
Mozilla. If you do not know what linking libraries like libXt means,  
ignore that part.

Replacing the old npsqueak.so with the new one should be all that is  
required to make it work in Firefox again.
