Here's the thing using Mint and love it. Used to use XP and Mint feels sprightlier but there are minor things that I miss about XP.
One thing which I can't believe that there's no solution to is that the address bar on Firefox is set up so that when you click on it it moves the focus to the exact point you've clicked on. Now in XP when you click on the (Firefox) address bar it automatically highlights the whole address and only if you click again does it move the focus to the exact point you've clicked on.
A minor point I think you'll agree but I've got used to the XP way and wonder if there is anyway of doing this in Linux?
