[Chameleon] browser auto-refresh?

Hm... that doesn't explain to me while other apps that post don't
exhibit the same behaviour.  But I'll continue googling.  No luck so

When I say refresh... I don't mean just what's loaded in the browser...
it's re-requesting from the server.  Which is something the others
aren't doing.  Speed might have affected me noticing with other
applications, but I would have noticed the POST error.

this is the way mozilla works.  You can work around it by attaching to 
the onresize event of the body:

<body onresize="return false;">

or something like that ... a quick google should get you close ... as I 
am on dialup right now, a 'quick' google is impossible so I'll leave it 
to you ;)
