What do I do then Ignazio?  I created another user for my machine to see if I 
would have the same problem.  I do not have any problem on the other user's 
desktop.  Browser works normally and goes from place to place without 
JavaScript errors.  When I return to my desktop the errors return.  

I have dbg installed, and when I click on details, I get a window which I 
believe shows the errors.  If it is the script that is in red print.  Gold 
print is also used, but the red print seems related to the problem.  Is a 
javascript error related to .kde?  If I send a copy of the script, can you 
tell me how to correct the problem?
