Fair enough, being a long time tester since about .5 I thought I would throw 
those ideas around as it was a "known" Bug with the importing from the 
"dot" DIR's

AS I said before I DO NOT use the RPMS or Gnome so what the packagers do to 
FF I don't know.. 
The guy who originally posted just wanted his "mailto" links on various Web 
Pages to use Kmail, hence my suggestion of Mozex.
