	perspectives is not installed.  I've never taken the default and
	added a cert that was not in the firefox trusted list... (at least on
	a permanent basis)

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008091618 Firefox/3.0.2

	and yes, a redirect might be in play - except this happens w/ multiple, different caches
	(fm the house, work, panera, starbucks and even "the cows end")
