Hi all,

As a related matter, but not for Linux platform, we're trying to the a 
Firefox portable version with Squeak Plugin included. We have copied the 
NPSqueak.dll which comes with small-land image windows instalation. It 
works fine and load any page with Squeak content (well the ones with 
their url  attached to the http://squeakland.org/project.jsp? ). If we 
move the Firefox Portable app to another computer it loads fine, and 
each time it loads the *pr file in the url as an argument of the 
SqueakPlugin.image. If we named SqueakPlugin.image to another image it 
loads fine anyway, but we're wondering if it's possible to move that 
image with the Firefox Portable app. There is any need for a change or 
an special location of the SqueakPlugin.image or any change in the 

Thanks a lot,
