Hello Jerry,

it looks like this currently, the default application of hh is not available in the "select application" choices (x2 click first item on list).

My literal thinking is overtime today :-[ Menu, Search "mime" , I used Catfish, instead of searching the actual menu. :-[

Jerry:
It probably opens the html in Leafpad because your Mime types have changed. Menu, search 'mime' MIME Type Editor. Filter, html. Set as below:

Hello Ralphy,

thank you for your time trying to explain it to me.
I will mark it as solved although I dont understand what you wrote.

When Menu>favourites>Help Manual  is clicked, it does not open the manual only the html file and looks as per the screenshot.
I can use it online instead.
This began when I disabled the backdoor.

Hi @bitsnpcs

The manual is not broken as far as we can tell. Your screenshot shows http protocol ports 80 and 443 - nothing wrong with that in the javascript.

Samba Firewall rules are automatically added to the firewall as soon as Network Share Settings is launched (after authentication). That has been done to simplify user's sharing setup. It happens that the firewall not allowing samba traffic is a common issue for most new users to believe that something is wrong with their samba service or configuration. At the end, the determination was made to add firewall rules automatically to allow samba traffic. Samba is enabled by default in Linux Lite. We do not consider it a security risk since the the default smb configuration does not provide any open or guest accessible shares by default. Also, most desktop computers are likely running behind a firewall'd local area network (LAN); even connecting straight to a gateway will put users behind a NAT and some firewall in almost every case and when it doesn't, Linux Lite firewall is still there only allowing samba traffic with no default shares accessible anyways.

Hope that explains the mystery regarding Samba rules.

Cheers!
