    Sorry this took so long. I hadn't checked my email in over a month and I had several dozen emails to go through. Step 5 reads as though there should be a link there, but there isn't.... Oh, Lord of the Mozilla Browser I beseech thee to check over text of step 5 and determine whether or not a link belongs there. My silly mortal mind cant fathom what it means with out you! LOL ; )
