Yeah, unfortunately there is no Monticello Browser in 3.7.  I found  
both in the 3.8 image, however.  Once I fixed the #asUrl logic to  
include https, I was able to load https pages.  But when I tried to  
login to my bank, to test https POST logic, the login button logic  
failed.  The FormInputSet had a form that was missing the url.  I  
couldn't dig too deeply.   I tried some other sites and they had  
difficulty even displaying the login button.  I am figuring that  
Javascript is an issue.  It was worth a try.
