Thanks for your reply,
What happens is "all is fine" with Opera, and Konqueror web
browsers but once I start Mozilla, all hell breaks loose...
It's like looking at a negative of a picture, whites turn black
and the reversal of all colors, I can't describe to you the color
changes for I was never aware of how much whole desktop can
I mean EVERYTHING including the toolbars etc.
I may go and install 4.10 and see what happens. 4.10 failed to
install when the installation kernel hit the parallel port...
Install/Kernel just wedged shut.
