num lock & Thuderbird ?


Hi,
Mandrake 10.1
How do you disable the auto NumLock enable on boot cos Ive got one of those small keyboards that itergrates the num pad into the other keys so I keep it disabled ?

In Thunderbird when I click on a link in an EMail it downloads the link and then opens it in Firefox, but it is located in that file and I cant link away from that page ?
How do I get it to go to the page rather than download the link ?

Hi,
Thanks but Ive just found the Num Lock one.
System/configuration/configure desktop/periferals/Num Lock on start up/turn off
I think its the user friendly way
