Yeah... I figured it was something strange on my system. I recently
upgraded to Fedora 18 (BAD MOVE! Even versions almost always suck!)
and I've had nothing but problems. :(
My email client won't even load (KMail - gives an Akonadi error) and
now Chrome is misbehaving... *sigh* I finally got into my email
provider by clearing the cache and cookies... Hate to do that, but
sometimes it's got to be done!
