Thanks to Eric's comment in another thread, I've discovered why I hadn't 
seen any updates in months, and have updated to 5777 (under 10.13.6 High 
Sierra) -- but I still do not see URLs pop up when I hover over a link, 
and I still do not see icons in the Preferences tabs. The latter is a 
minor annoyance, but the former is a major one; can anyone help me debug 
this? Please?
