I have been having a similar problem for some time, though I have been
too lazy to moan about it. I can no longer access SWAT from my Mozilla
1.0 browser (Mozilla being the basis for Netscape 6). I can, however,
access it through the Konqueror browser - feel free to try that, maybe it
will work for you too.

I am interested to hear of any ideas on why we are having this problem.
Is it a samba bug or a Mozilla bug?
