Problem: Now that I understand to enter about:config in the search field
I can find plugin.expose_full_path but cannot edit the value to change
it from false to true. I have tried a number of key combinations that
work with other editors but none worked.
In addition the iceape now has a problem retrieving mail - reports a
security problem and a login failure. I have changed nothing other than
the changes mentioned in this thread and with identical settings in
preferences/security and accont settings/server settings I can retrieve
mail with my other computer.
