Perry, It isn't easy is it. I am not sure why FireFox quit working like that. When I created the new glib for my box I was still running mozilla 5.0 and didn't have any trouble with it. I wonder if it has something to do with gtk+. I am running FireFox 188.8.131.52 that I downloaded the tarball and compiled. Let me know if you figure this out. -- Michael Hughes Log Home living is the best [EMAIL PROTECTED] Temperatures: Outside: 65.4 House: 72.1 Computer room: 71.1 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
