Hi Peter,

I think the problem is with your setup. I have looked at my (and  
others') Smugmug sites with Safari and Firefox on the Mac, and with  
Firefox and IE on various XP machines (my other computer, plus my  
wife's and daughter's computers, plus the one at work). No problem  
with any of those. I cannot but conclude that you have a setting in  
your Firefox installation that somehow blocks the Java stuff that  
Smugmug relies on.
