*Hello Sundar,

Thanks for the input concerning this problem, I looked in the advanced 
area in the config editor, but did not see the 
network.protocal-handler.app.http nor https...

Am I supposed to add those to the files...???

At anyrate, I just downloaded TB via synaptic, everything is working 
just fine...

Thanks again for the reply...
