Thank heavens, I was not seeing things or making them up.

I have some problems similar to Charles.  The last several times Firefox has 
upgraded, I've gotten a message about Firefox and a particular Skype add-on not 
being compatible.  I've also had real trouble getting signs out of SignPuddle 
and into other programs.  Again, I haven't worked on that for a while so I don't 
know if those problems are still as much of an issue as they were several months 
ago.  I know there are a bunch of fixes supposed to be coming soon so I'm 
waiting for confirmation that SignPuddle has been updated; then I'm going to try 
some of these things again and see if they work again.
