I'm using basic HTML with framesets. Everything works fine in IE, but when I click on a link that has a frameset in Firefox, it shows a broken link. What's happening is that one of the slashes in the web addresses is switching from '/' to '\'.
http://www.kjwebsite.com/Humor\HumorIndex.htm. Is there something special I need to do to allow this to work in Firefox?

Here's the frameset code (very basic):
<frameset cols="20%,80%" >
<frame name="Toolbar" src="HumorListFrame.htm">
<frame name="Content" scrolling="YES" noresize src="HumorDisplayFrame.htm">

I'm not doing that. It's happening automatically in Firefox. The URL displays correctly when in IE. When on the index page, I click on Humor and the URL is displayed in this "incorrect" format. I'm not sure where it is coming from and why it only happens in Firefox and not IE

Check your links - they all have '\' instead of '/'

<td width="155" height="40"><a href="Humor \ HumorIndex.htm">Humor</a></td>

MSIE is correcting the typo for you and Firefox isn't.
