I did, Willy.  Thanks!  Recapitulation:

I made the exact command you recommended being sure I was in the correct 
directory.  U did a google search for Ebay.  Google page did not produce any 
javascript error, however when I clicked on the Ebay site, I got a javascript 
error on the first open page.
