Thanks but there is no such file config.py anywhere in my /home 
directory (or /etc for that matter just in case it might have ended up 
there). I'm going to look around some and see if QT or Python updates 
mucked around. Qutebrowser was updated on my system to 1.5.2-4 three 
days ago but I went away and didn't use the computer until today. Things 
are misbehaving across the browser including freezes (particularly on 
brainzilla.com) and settings not keeping. There is no autoconfig.yml at 
all in ~/.config/qutebrowser/
