Oh my dear. Now this is an embarassing situation. Well, I guess I've
gotta laugh. :)
I didn't realize Privoxy would do this. I guess context handling by
Privoxy would be lots of work. It also why explains why
'PrivoxyWindowOpen()' didn't turn up in any newsgroups or in the local
documentation! (I don't think I was ever viewing the copies of
identical document both locally and online for comparison.)
A bit sad that I didn't think this could have actually been realtime
interference by Privoxy! :(
