No, wow! How did you come up with that?? That works as does, and all the sites we host and random others. After I posted 
this I found that libreoffice was also broken by the thunderbird install 
and upgrades. It was missing 8 dynamic libraries. I added the missing files 
from another workstation and got libreoffice to start but it only wanted to 
recover my "lost" files. Removing libreoffice and all its dependencies 
fixed that issue. I am wondering if my particular combination of packages 
has another "hidden" dependency. I stored my bookmarks using the facility 
that allows sync-ing. That does not work. Other than that firefox works 
perfectly on the sites it will load.
