How can I direct revGoURL to a specific browser?

I am having the same issue with revlets.  They work 100% in IE but maybe 85%
in Firefox.  Is there a certain discipline I should be using when writing
code for revlets so they work in revlets supported browsers?

I see. There isn't much you can do. Some web developers still write 
IE-specific pages that no other operating systems can view, and a good 
chunk of the Windows population can't see those either. About all you 
can do is rewrite the web page so it doesn't use IE-specific elements. 
Most sites are doing that now, as they should.
