There were changes made in m0n0wall when Firefox's built in SVG
support first came out so it worked right with it. Those changes were
provided by a Firefox developer, IIRC. It currently works fine with
either the current Firefox's SVG or Adobe's SVG.  (except for the guy
running Windows 98, sheesh, who runs that crap anymore... I can't say
I'm surprised it doesn't work on 98, and there's no telling what the
issue may be).

My guess is it's a bug in Firefox 3.0 (it is alpha, after all), or
they changed something so m0n0wall is going to need another change.
Either way, unless another Firefox dev pops up with a fix, I wouldn't
expect it to get looked at until Firefox 3.0 is much closer to
completion.
