Re: Not seeing Floppy

It's internal. Will it be seen if it has a blank floppy that is good? Only one floppy drive on this machine. By "You might need to put the drive at the other side of the twist assuming your FDD cable has one," you mean swap the cable end for end?

HTTPS Everywhere

I am considering installing the HTTPS Everywhere browser extension for FireFox. Is there any downside to using it? Will it make it harder or impossible to use some websites?

I select Noto Sans, type text, make a space, tab, or new sentence and Liberation Serif comes back up. This is very annoying. I would be happy if I got the font ...

Upgrade from LTS

If one upgrades from Mint XX to Mint XX.1 is the install still LTS, or does one need to upgrade from XX.1 to XX.2 and so on?. My impression is that Mint XX LTS is good to inspiration date if updates are maintained and that upgrading to .2,, .3, etc just adds bells and whistles? Am I correct?
