You might need to change the pop-up options to allow content from, which was the only snag I ran into with the default setup.
Can you explain in more detail what you mean by this and what you were doing in the chat when a problem occured?
I havent given chatspot more than a quick run through.
Hi Bob, Firefox comes with a "pop-up blocker" built into it. This feature will prevent the chat window from being created on your desktop. I simply went into "pop-up options" (click on the error message to access it) and added to the "allow content from" list. This would be a problem on any browser with pop-up blocking enabled, though. It isn't specific to Firefox.

I found on a website some info about how to turn off the annoying click in internet explorer:
The "click" is the sound that Microsoft Internet Explorer makes when you click on a web link. If you wish, you can turn this feature off in the Control Panel. In Windows XP, open the Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices (it's just Sounds & Multimedia in Windows 2000), then Sounds and Audio Devices, then on the Sounds tab, scroll down to the section for Windows Explorer. Click the event called "Start Navigation," and change the setting to "none" from the dropdown box. Click OK to apply the change, and the clicks are gone.

I was on a computer without FireFox for the simul-view and the clicks were driving me insane
I'd rather be a gear in a big, deterministic, physical machine than just some random swerving.

You can either wait until some people show up or create a post in the Lounge asking to setup a time to chat.

The chat function was disabled after I discovered that it had security flaws.
I believe it is still being developed by some people and I will find a newer more secure version to install in the next month or so.
