One thing that might have a bearing on it is this:
I have long bitched and railed at both mozilla and firefox for nuking
the plugins directory when an update is being installed, so I said to
hell with it about a year ago, and made a seperate plugins directory
with all the junk you don't wanna have to go install again for the
73rd time, including the libnull thingy they do install, and then
lndir the whole mess to the plugins dir of the fresh install. It may
not be the "right thing to do" but it hasn't bit me yet...

People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules. I do use spamassassin too. :-)
