I've posted before about the interop problems with Konq and MM2.0.8
(check the archives).  These should all be cleared up with MM2.1.

I will note that I've seen quite a few regressions with Mozilla 0.9.7
Linux.  Moz 0.9.6 seemed to work very well, but I've noticed two
problems with the latest release.

- Moz seems to have problems with the mass subscribe forms, which
  AFAICT differ from other forms only in that it has an
  `enctype="multipart/form-data"' attribute on the <FORM> tag.
  Submitting either the mass subscribe or mass remove forms just
  hangs.  This worked fine in Moz 0.9.6 and works fine w/ NS, and

- Moz 0.9.7 seems to ignore https and other encrypted connections.
  The lil' lock icon never locks!  This doesn't affect MM directly,
  although it certainly affects sites like SF which use SSL.

I haven't reported these to the Mozilla group yet, and I'm also
wondering if anybody else has noticed these problems.
