7.  FIREFOX ALERT
————————————————————————
*  Old versions of Moraware JobTracker may not work in the newest
versions of Firefox.  If you have a version of Moraware older than

2.4, you can use Internet Explorer, or contact us to upgrade.  Here
are the problems we’ve found:

  1.  Firefox 2, version 2.0.0.15 or newer – printable forms, quotes,
and PO’s longer than one page don’t print correctly.
  2.  Firefox 3 – “Cancel” buttons don’t work, and certain
combinations of form headers and logos don’t print correctly.

  3.  dragdropupload – if you’re using this Firefox extension to
attach multiple files, install v1.6.8
