iceweasel is slowly turning into a space on my drive waster.  38.3.0, on 
wheezy here, and it refused to go to a site link in an email message, 
where I could confirm I wanted to opt in to a new server one of my 
mailing list memberships is moving to, getting away from yahell.  That 
forced the list-owner to have to do it by hand.

It even offered to retry it, but that failed also, with it reporting that 
the destination port was not one normally used for that service and that 
it had canceled that request.

'Scuse me but how can I turn that nannying off?
