There's a plan! Now how do I rid firefox and mozilla, etc. of the
offenders, totem and helix? rpm -e everything remotely related? 

I bet there is some obscure file ready to erupt and infect afresh
install, tell me there isn't. <grins> 

I just did rm -rf /usr/lib/totem and /usr/lib/helix and every file I
could 'locate' that looked like it might be one of these two, and
firefox still wants to use them and not drop out to ask what it wants to
be done with the file. 

That's different. I thought default behavior was to ASK! <grumbles> I
just want my machine back, is all. For ME to tell it what to do... not
for someone in Pahrump Nevada to dictate. Or the unmentionable Raleigh
NC gang, who's name cannot be pronounced one this list, so we say "Nee!"
I shall henceforth refer to their product as "Shrubbery". See if I
don't. 
  

Damn, Ric
