First, I had to send this email from the web interface so I apologize
if it comes across in HTML.
In the process of trying to copy a directory from my friend's laptop,
I was mucking with my Samba (smb.conf) file. I was finally able to
connect to his laptop and copy the files. Now, a couple hours later,
and I try to connect to the internet I am unable to do so. Firefox
does not connect, nor does Thunderbird (which is why I am sending this
via the web mail instead of TB.)
Strange, Konqueror will still connect to the internet. And Konqueror
doesn't like Gmail's website at all.
I am not sure if the inability to connect is coincidence or is
directly related to fiddling with the smb.conf. I can't see how the
two would be related, but that is the only part of the system I have
been fiddling with lately.
Any idea why Konqueror and connect but not FF & TB? I am using Linux
Mint (basically, ubuntu 8.04) and KDE 3.5.10 if that information
