 Subject:  Safari and firmware upgrade
 Date:  Mon, 17 Aug 2009 10:38:29 -0500
I just did a firmware upgrade from embedded-1.3b16 to embedded-1.3b18  
(Soekris 4801) and found that the upgrade did not work when I did it  
with Safari 4.0.3 (OS X 10.5.8, PPC).

After selecting the file to upload and hitting the "Upgrade Firmware"  
button, Safari just spun its wheel.  During this time (I waited 6 full  
minutes), m0n0wall continued to function normally.  I eventually did  
"abort" the upgrade, but there really wasn't anything to abort.  The  
system continued to run 1.3b16.

Uploading the same image using Firefox worked just fine.  I don't know  
whether this is a specific issue with Safari 4.0.3 or with 1.3b16.  I  
can't recall whether previous upgrades were done with Safari or  
Firefox, but over the years it would have been a mix.
