you're absolutely correct matt...

but if the Firefox instance is used throughout, any coookies, or other
stateful information will be the same...

so as i get information back from the firefox instance, i can parse it and
send it back to the firefox instance. this is pretty much what i already did

so it might work...

That's just going to get you the tag with the src attribute -- not magically
rewritten into one combined HTML file. Sorry!
