As a total newbie, I'm struggling to understand what the kernel is, let alone if and how I should update it - thats kinda why I choose to go with the LTR version of Mint to start with. But maybe I'd better start learning (I seem to be on a VERY steep curve at the mo').
As an extra twist, I have found that if I change the desktop environment to MATE, I don't have any freezes running Firefox (although I have a number of other problems). Is that because MATE doesn't run 3D effects? Either way, it does seem that my problems are specific to the Cinnamon desktop in 3D. Would a kernel update have any impact on the Cinnamon environment?
