On a slightly related note, I ran into a nasty problem today. It seems a Baton
Rouge company that does web-based medical stuff for my client does a browser
detect and unless you're hitting the site with IE, all of the relative links
are padded with leading backslashes. Needless to say, my 3-week-old campaign
to switch that entire office to mozilla just came to a screeching halt.

I didn't find a place in mozilla to change the user agent string. I might be
able to put everyone behind a proxy that mangles the string, but I'm
concerned that forcing everyone to surf through a proxy might break things
here and there.
