Most interesting..... Something to do with UFOs perhaps (Unidentified 
Firefox Operations)? :-)

I have now done at least 10 tests taking a copy of the URL showing on 
various pages of various articles on various online news sources, sent 
the URLs to myself in e-mail(s), shutdown Firefox for each test 
(shutting FF clears its cache on my set-up), clicked on the URL using 
Thunderbird I just sent myself - and in each and every case what 
appeared in FF was the beginning of the article and not the page where I 
copied the URL.


Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
