Hi Pete.  I don't have the conditions I had when I first went at this -- 
not even the original code.  I've duplicated something close to it below 
and find it working in Mozilla (but not in fox, likely because fox knows 
nothing of the xul file, as was said yesterday).  It could be that when 
I switched to another method I may have created the conditions for this 
code to behave.  The other method started with:


which Moz will now remember.  If I knew how to retract this priv, I 
could try again.  (Changing this to *disable* on a lark didn't seem to 
change anything; and if it did, we're in trouble because Moz is happily 
writing to my hard drive with no chrome protocol, no "registration" of 
the app, or anything else.)

     function postData( sName, sId, sEmail )
         var sPath="c:\\forum.txt";

         var f=checkFileExists( sPath );
         if( f )
             f.open( "a" );
             f.write( "a line of text\n" );

     function checkFileExists( sPath )
         var f=new File( sPath );

         if( f && f.exists()==false )

         return f;
