Re: Add Workspaces

Thanks. Settings > Workspaces did not work for me. I did Settings > Applets > Workspace Switcher. That added 4 workspaces to left corner of bottom panel.

Gparted

Just installed Mint Cinnamon 19.0. Did erase everything and LVM. I usually do "Something Else" and create: /dev/sda1 ext /dev/sda5 swap /dev/sda6 ext4 home /dev/sda7 ext4 extra space at end. The Installer said it would be easier to change partitions if I did LVM. How do I resize sda1 so that I can c...

Re: Install Mattgadient on Macbook

You can jump through a lot of hoops and do that. Info at mattgadient.com. The mattgadient iso for mac has that included so you don't have to roll your own.

Re: Firefox freezes my computer

I do not believe I am piggybacking on Firefox Freezes my Computer. I was responding to the previous question about swap in relation to FF. What do you mean by piggybacking?

Re: Firefox freezes computers!

I just booted another HDD in the machine that I have been having trouble with. It has Mint 18.0, 64bit, Cinnamon 3.0.7, kernel 4.4.0-116 generic, FF 58.0.2 64bit, NoScript and uBlock Origin. When I go to some pages like YouTube CPU bounces to 100% briefly but then goes down to below 25%

Re: Firefox freezes computers!

New user, about the same. Hard to tell in detail, will set up NoScript and uBlock Origin on it. I just started an old machine that has FF 58.0.2 on it. Added NoScript and uBlock Origin.

Re: Firefox freezes computers!

I understand the security issue. That said, why did the system start having problems after the latest FF update. Something wrong w/the update, or FF? As I said, things really tanked after the last FF update.

Re: Firefox freezes computers!

Deleting .mozilla, renaming .mozilla.old to .mozilla worked. I now have my bookmarks and settings back. Thanks. Now what to do? revert to older FF version? Everything tanked after the last FF update via mint updates. Is google the problem? I usually use DuckDuckgo.

Re: Firefox freezes computers!

I found .mozilla at /home/me. Reamed .mozilla .mozilla.old. restarted FF. Processor is still flat lining at 100%, but not for so long at some of the pages I have been visiting. I lost all my many book marks BOO! Would be good to warn that bookmarks and settings, will be lost so they might be saved. ...
