That may well be the case. There also is a persistant problem with font
corruption in Firefox which I have discovered can be corrected by
exiting firefox, logging out, logging in again and then restarting firefox. 
This problem shows up only with fourwinds10.com AFAICT.

I did not have this problem when I first installed Fedora. But the
problem has gotten steadily worse since it developed. This is the first
time I've seen it occur in man pages. There have been worsening font
problems with email for some time.
