Gunter, let me verify what your original problem was with icedove.  Were
you unable to get to iceweasel when you clicked on a link  in icedove or
were you able to get to iceweasel home page but not the actual link you
were trying to open?  I appreciate your comments and want to get this
darned thing fixed but need to know I'm working on the right thing.  I
can get to iceweasel but I always get the home page.  I don't get the
specific link I'm trying for.

Oh, and I figued out why I did not see that actual line as mentioned.  I
was looking at prefs.js from the command line using cat prefs.js.  When
looking at the file in that manner all you get are those which have
content and are marked "true" and I didn't find out how to change it
until I went to the "config editor" button in preferences->Advanced->
General->config editor.  So much fun.  :-)

Regards and TIA
