After loading pb23 and seeing the exact same problem I decided to do some 
more detailed testing, different browsers, etc.  Seems that there is some 
conflict between IE and m0n0wall when you have the Google toolbar 
loaded.  IE without the toolbar seems to work fine, as does Mozilla.  The 
only thing I've enabled on the toolbar is the popup blocker, and I set it 
to allow popups from the m0n0wall site.  Still seems to hang.
