Hi, Jon,
	Interesting that these pages never came up when I was searching for
preferences stuff using google.  It is valuable information.  The
user.js file should be mentioned somewhere on the about:config page I
think, to help people having problems.  I don't remember ever setting
this file up myself, so the next question comes, where did this file
come from?  I will have to see if I can find the source of the user.js
file.  Maybe a new round of Google will help.

	I struggled with this stupid problem for many days before I resorted to
asking the list.

	I have had a really bad month from mid Dec to mid Jan with all kinds of
electronics failing.  I have replaced at least 6 major pieces of
electronics, all with issues, from this stuff here to Windows 7
(re-vista maybe?) to remote controls failing (car, garage door, TV, VCR,
and DVD player.)  If I have seemed a bit scrambled, it is because the
electronic gods are blowing my fuses.

Regards,
Les H
