Egads, what guts to try Firefox!!! Now that's a little ambitious! :-D :-D

BTW, I got Wolf4SDL to work on my Vista laptop under DOSBox 0.73 (don't ask me why, heh). First, I did "copy c:\windows\system32\msvcr71.dll msvcrt.dll", "copy SDL_MIXER.DLL SDL_MIX.DLL", hexedited the two references to the mixer DLL inside itself (-> "SDL_MIX.DLL\0\0") and WOLF4SDL.EXE (needed 'cause DOSBox API doesn't truncate LFNs to SFNs the same way as real DOS), "set SDL_AUDIODRIVER=dummy", and voila! If you don't disable audio, it won't even start up (seems to hang). And yes, obviously, it's extremely slow (1 fps), worse than Mike's 8086, but hey it works there too! ;-) (Obviously HX + Wolf4SDL in native DOS or DOS version under DOSBox is normal speed.)

P.S. The main issues I thought somebody (Japheth?) would be interested in were the Numlock quirk (or is that a debugging tool??), Shift + l/r arrows (feature??), and most importantly the fact that no supported sound doesn't just let you continue anyways and play silently. (BTW, I read that ScrLock might be needed for mouse in windowed mode [EDIT: yup!].)
