What I did was open Firefox to the Mint Elyssa start page, copied that address, and then pasted it in the Epiphany browser address bar. I clicked it and then told Epiphany to set as my start page. It was quick and easy.
Oddly, when I first installed Epiphany, it was not in my menu list. I went in and checked the Epiphany (gecko) browser instead of the other one. I have two options, but now only the gecko one show up. Everything works, so I am not complaining, obviously.
Firefox works just great for me, but I did want to experiment with the default GNOME browser and see what it could do. I know Konqueror in KDE is a good browser option to Firefox, as well. Have fun.
thank you. Finally it has worked. Now I can use Epiphany me too and see how it is good. I've an old PC, mobo Asus CUV4mx, CPU Via Coppermine 800 Mhz of the year 1999, RAM 512. Then using a lighter web browser is preferable for this pc. I'm using Linux purely, without Win, since about six month by now and I prefer it. With the XP Home and the antivirus, antispyware, adware, anti rootkits, the daily updating and so on I was going nowhere. I'm using the Firestarter (firewall) and that's all and is OK. This PC can have some further future. Next few months with the release of the new CPUs, the actual Mobos gets cheaper and then I can buy a new to replace this one, Asus and CPU Intel of course. I thank you again for the help.
