#3 Fix for loading local files in Firefox3


The changes in how Firefox3 handles the same-origin policy for local files necessitated changes to jsMath's external file loading mechanism. The mechanism that worked for early release candidates required changes for the final release version. This patch implements those changes, and it will be included in the next release of jsMath.

Unpack the archive and replace the two original files that are in the jsMath folder on your server.

This patch only affects jsMath when used on pages loaded using "file:" URLs, not "http:" URLs.

    OOPS, left out changes to the jsMath.js file itself. The patch-2008-08-22.zip file should include all three changed files. Replace the ones in jsMath with the new ones here.
