Thanks to Wayne's comment, I think I have found the source of the problem. I tried to open Localhost and go to page 631 and was told that Firefox could not find localhost.
To do that, I opened a terminal (more on this in a moment) and typed "kdesu firefox" entered the password and I was off to the races, I thought. I typed "http://127
.0.0.1" and was told that Firefox could not find the URL. I retyped it and substituted localhost for 127.0.0.1 and got the same result. So, what is blocking, or what could be blocking me, from localhost?
My Firewall is set with all blocks checked except "Everything."
You noticed I used "kdesu" to get to a graphics root terminal. The "root terminal" off the menu will not work and I have to use the user terminal and do either an "su" or "kdesu" to access a root terminal. Any idea why?
Thanks for all the help
