Thanks, Scott:

Those would have been recent, as I had not long ago reinstalled Ubuntu! 
But because of the white-out--I couldn't see how to update them in Firefox!

That opened the same white window, which I shut. Then on the terminal 
the following showed.

(firefox:6299): LIBDBUSMENU-GTK-CRITICAL **: 
dbusmenu_menuitem_property_set_shortcut: assertion 
`gtk_accelerator_valid(key, modifier)' failed
Job 1, “firefox -safemode&” has ended

> Reset firefox:-
> backup  ~/.mozilla/firefox/

I installed backup. Resulting in the following dialogue request.

{Configuring openafs-client 
   │ AFS filespace is organized into cells or administrative domains. 
Each workstation belongs to one cell.  Usually the cell is   │
   │ the DNS domain name of the site. │
│ │
   │ AFS cell this workstation belongs to:            }

I do not know how to respond!
