Thank you for your reply. I have been clearing the cache regularly. Opera, Chrome and FireFox are all set to clear the cache when they close. I've also rebooted a couple of times when all the browsers are closed.
It has been a complete surprise to see how differently each browser behaves with the same .htaccess file. Even with only the www to non www running it will work in one and not another. Typing in the domain/index.htm still causes odd happenings. Chrome says a redirect loop was created. Another seems to hang up for a long time before opening. Opera is the one I use the most. FireFox seems to work with the .htaccess file the best.
Time may help clear out the problems when index.htm is not asked for again in tests.
