I am new to Linux mint. I installed opera as my favorite browser and bookmarks.
I next set up Thunderbird as my default email program and installed my address
book. I even managed to install skype. Everything seemed to be going just fine.
I shut the computer down. Later I booted up into Linux and found that all of my efforts
were to no avail. Opera and bookmarks, Skype and my Thunderbird address book
had disappeared. Could not find them anywhere. I have now repeated the installation
three times with the same results. How do you get these applications to stick around.
