Once I finally closed down KDE (2 Windows - each with many Tabs), I was
finally able to 'umount -a' and clean up those pesky mount points. I
did NOT have to reboot :-)

So lets go have a looksee at Epiphany's behavior now...shall we?

Oh...the other ODD thing I noticed in epiphany was that my *recent*
Edits/Modifications were NOT in Bold type in about:config (my long ago
Mods _still_were_ though -- like all those *dom.disable* changes I
made). I haven't fired up Epiph for atleast a month before today. Man
that's a spooky ;-) 

Nope -- the "browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick" (set to False now) is
Still not in Bold - but all the other prior changes still are :-(

I'm going call it Bull@$%^%^ now - and assume that Mozilla's settings
(native/default or otherwise altered/modified) are being used via Epiph
-- otherwise why would Epiph -> *depends* upon Mozilla, if it didn't
use it's stuff.

Here I go -- diving into Mozilla-ville (I'm going to Fire-her-up)
...See ya soon

...Alrighty then;
I found this file;
(but it seems like I inadvertantly have 2 profiles, as a
/home/$Username/.gnome/ also exists)

It seems that the contents of this file are storing my altered/modified
Epiphany settings...Thar' she blows!

Everything in here shows up in Bold and as "UserSet", rather than
non-bold and default in Epiphany's [about:config] -- see that
dom.disable image(PNG) I posted earlier.

Notice there's no entry for; *browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick*

So let's go ahead and put one in ...shall we? Using my fav text editor,
I type in this;

user_pref("browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick", false);

and stick it where it belongs; naturally in alphabetical order...

user_pref("browser.display.use_document_fonts", 0);
user_pref("browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing", true);
user_pref("browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick", false);

File | Save - and I'm done with *that*particular* preference

Now...Let's exit and then Fireup Epiphany again and see what happens
using middleclick, and what about:config says about Userset, or

Well after futzin with trying to copy and replace /.gnome with the
contents of /.gnome2 (a duplicate) and it NOT sticking for various
reasons (likely gnome makes a new one each, for each user - and /.gnome
is for 'root', because it keeps getting remade everytime I delete it
and open Epiph-a-crap).

Bah...I give up for now - you guys take it from there - heck, I don't
even *use* gnome, nor epiphany, and I'll bet Gnome's Control Center
settings have something to do with overriding it (as KDE's does using
Konquerer) - ....yes, I did look briefly in there.
