Copy & paste this URL into a new foo.desktop, it fails. Paste it into a
working foo.desktop, it fails. Paste it directly into firefox, it
works. Create foo.desktop as an application launcher with "firefox
http://pch-a100:8883/feedtime.cgi" as the command, it works.
That solves my problem of how to get a working launcher, but doesn't
answer the mystery of why it quit working when the only change was
from 64-bit to 32-bit.
Thanks for your help
