When I try "https://localhost:631" in Firefox the status bar on the
bottom of the page says it is going there, but nothing ever appears and
all I see is the hourglass while Firefox tries to access the data. I've
never used the web interface before, in fact, I didn't even know it

Suspecting the problem is permissions, I did "sudo firefox" from the
command line, then tried the link, but it still won't open.

Instructions saved to my CheatSheet file where I keep tips, tricks and
snips of command line stuff. Thanks.
