Wow, I didn't think you could even do that anymore, but sure enough with
my semi-modern Firefox, it still has that feature! So there you go,
whoever it was, you have lots of options now!
PS. Brad, I didn't realize it was mythweb making those png's -- I
haven't tried turning off the GeneratePreviewPixmaps setting to see if
mythweb honours that, though, have you? I bet you are right, and I'd
almost consider that a bug... If it turns out you're right, of course!
