This covers those, so thank you.

I am aware of that file, which applies to any way that GiP commands

Yes, been doing that, no problem.

There be serpents! :-)

But the Mozilla Devs haven't dropped support for Windows XP (yet!). My
only reason for switching is that Chrome keeps popping up a message
that support for XP has ceased, and I can't turn it off. I am
gradually migrating to a new Windows 10 PC (pause for Linux users to
snigger), but it's a long process in my particular case.
I will have to copy and paste between Chrome and Firefox to transfer
the settings, I guess.
Incidentally (as a nod to a different thread) my original post and
this are sent via Outlook Express on Windows XP, in plain text, and
they get through. A few people's posts arrive with the content as
attachments, but that doesn't matter (to me).
Thanks again, Vangelis, for your ever comprehensive reply. You could
have simply said RTFM!
