It was. Changed it first in seamonkey.desktop but no
go. Then changed it in seamonkey-navigator.desktop
which solved the problem. Now where did that other
command come from? Wish I could start a flame war on
this topic(Exec='ksystraycmds') and maybe find out
what the command means. Any way, will now look at the
opera browser issue to see if I can fix it. Thanks
Gary, you did it again.

Something funny about the above URL, main part of page
was blank but found the command in the right column
and clicked it but nothing happened. No problem
though as the issue is now fixed. Thanks again.

Well, that would have been a saintly act. wouldn't it?
Certainly not bad morally. As it was a Dell, it may
have had linux as the OS, Ubuntu at that. I like 64
bits, it's faster and KDE 4.1 64 bit is getting better
slowly and has more bells & whistles than regular KDE
and I like it better than KDE. If you weren't such a
die hard gnome user, like some people are such die
hard Democrats, you'd switch and forget gnome. Any
offense to Liberal Democrats is truly intended. tee,
hee. Well, not really. Every American has the right
to their own opinion even when they are wrong!
God Bless,

Yes it is. Glad I just added the seamonkey internet
suite to my panel icon which has the mail programs,
etc., in the lower left seamonkey panel. I prefer to
open mail, etc., from the browser window anyway.
