Re: OT?: Thunderbird/Firefox - http links changed to file: links??

The problem persists! Not just one or two messages, now it affects all message links from Thunderbird to Firefox.

I'm beginnig to wonder if there is something amiss with some global configuration or if I have somehow been compromised. This last is fairly unlikely since I practice safe hex and have a firewall in place.

I guess I'll have to dig into the global configurations for TB and FF
but don't expect to find anything as they were both erased and re-installed just now.

Just to be on the safe side I'll reboot to make sure there isn't any memory-resident interceptor at work. An examination of ps shows nothing
unusual but I'll check for rootkits and such as well.

After re-booting and applying all the Gnome updates, the problem has disappeared. All the links behave just fine.

BTW: The chkrootkit scan found nothing.

Thanks You for the suggestions.
