The weird thing is, it can't be just slipping around the proxy or not
using it, as I'm behind a firewall and the only way to get out is using
the proxy server (which is a right, royal pain in the arse). So I have
no idea how it's happening.

WRT the javascript thing, it's also a possibility, as mozilla probably
has support for some tricks that netscape doesnt.

Oh well...
