Version 93.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

- Synchronization with Firefox Sync works again (issue #32).
- Security measure to prevent access to note contents from websites also works in Firefox 4 now (issue #28).

Version 93.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

This is an important update:

- Fixes critical security issue. The note's content is now embedded in an iframe to prevent access from the parent website. This fix does _not_ work in FF4 (it seems to be a bug in Firefox itself).

- Internal restructuring of the code. Now there exists only one physical representation of a note , unlike before, where every window had its own version of the note.

As always, if you experience any problems, please contact me.
