Sometimes I just feel plain dumb.

Now I SORT of understand some. The way I learn is not the traditional way and it takes me a while I absorb it and I really need to DO it to retain it. Not a memorizer...
I don't really even know what rehalogenate means.
I'm also still confused how adding citric acid to fixer makes it a bleach. I got to talk to my dad (the chemist/physicist) and he said something about bleach might be an oxidizer of some kind and adding citric acid to a base can have different effects than adding it to an alkali and that might be why the citric acid in fixer makes it a bleach, but not having worked in chemistry for over 30 years he's forgotten a lot.
