[scribus] OK: Page number artefacts on browser display (firefox)

Workaround was to add a couple of new master pages for
the early unnumbered pages, removing the textframe for
the page number.

Document setup -> sections -> un-checking the visibility
of numbering should be sufficient. It isn't.

Firefox was idiosyncratic to display whatever garbage
it found there.  Equally, Scribus shouldn't be leaving
whatever garbage it left in the PDF export.

Thanks to Gregory.
