    Firefox 1.5 keeps sending me the U of A


    I have popped the wonderful Firefox 1.5 onto my SUSE 10.0 machine and all is working apart from an odd quirk whereby whenever I click a link in another program, e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird or Gaim, it just opens the home page of The University of Alabama.

    What is causing this? Is it something to do with the fact the path to the executable is missing an attribute telling it to open the address specified?

    Thanks in advance.

    I had something similar with Firefox going to the webpage of The University of Arizona every time it opened. All I did was remove the %u at the end of the command for Firefox. Seemed to work like a charm.

    That seems to have done the trick, although some programs just open my home page when I click a link but I believe that is due to something else or something not updating.
    Many thanks!
