Hi Folks,

Can anyone confirm that getChromeDir is working correctly in Mozilla 1.5?

I'm working with a user of my card sorting application 
(http://uzilla.mozdev.org/cardsort.html) that's having problems and 
don't have an OS X box nearby.

Relatedly, I'm using this block of code to deal with file separators 
across platforms. Is there a better way?

var platform = new String(navigator.platform);

if(platform.search(/^Win/)) {
	if(platform.search(/^Mac/)) {
	var fileSeparator = "/";
	} else {
		var fileSeparator = ":";
} else {
	var fileSeparator = "\\";

Thx, AE
