I'll have to admit that I am not the most technically astute of all computer
users out there. With detailed instructions I can usually figure it out,
but I am definitely more of a Windows point and click user. That being said
I will try to give as much info as possible.

Skin being used -- whatever the default is for the SlimServer software.
Never changed it -- I just needed something basic to play my tunes.

On the firmware issue: This was the advice I was given, and before I follow
it I was wondering if someone could provide instructions for computer
morons. I was a bit confused when I read the following:

Thanks for any help that anyone out there can provide.

if you wish you back up on firmware, find the squeezebox.version file
add a line:
39 31

These numbers correspond to current fw, and desired fw respectively. I may
be
wrong on the exact version numbers, but you can see in the player ui under
settings for the curent FW. The FW you want is the Squeezebox_xx.bin file
with
the highest number.

for security reasons, the server checks the last page in the browser
(referrer)
to make sure only slimserver can send you into the settings pages. This
prevents outside pages from accessing your settings and doing bad things.
What
skin are you using? Are you trying to use a bookmark to get to settings?
