Cameleon and gunter,
Thank you both so much for your advice. Unfortunately nothing has made
a difference and I'm still having the same problem no matter what I do.
I've done most everything you each have asked me to do. I still can get
to iceweasel, but not the particular link I am trying to access.
I think I'm going to purge Icedove and remove the .icedove directory and
then reinstall it and see if that makes a difference. If not, I may do
the same with Iceweasel. And if that makes no difference, I will
probably just save off all my data and do a fresh install of Wheezy.
The reason I am looking in this direction is that Cameleon mentioned
that no one else is having this problem so it's probably not a bug but
is a particular problem with my system. If that's the case I don't want
to have the developers running down a rabbit hole because "I" have a
problem, that it's particular to my box.
Again, gunter and Cameleon, thanks so much for your help. Not looking
forward to doing all this foolishness but hoepfully it will clear up my
problem. I've spent so many days trying to find out the problem it's
time to bite the bullet and get it over with.
Besides, I've been having a problem with xfce4 since it became the new
version and maybe it will work if I do a fresh install. BTW, I've
been using KDE4 and even checked Gnome, the classic version and it made
no difference w. my problem. But I used xfce3.x before it upgraded and
loved it. Maybe after I get all this foolishness redone things will be
Again, thanks so much for your help and patience with me. It is much
appreciated. You're good people.
