Hmm, works for me with Firefox 2.0. Your sample code isn't implementing
HTTP properly, so maybe Firefox decides that it isn't talking to a
proper HTTP server and aborts the connection? I'm particularly thinking
of how the code doesn't wait to receive the entire request before
sending the reply. The Sleep(0) in the server may give the browser
enough time to fully transmit the request before the server starts
sending the reply.
