Re: Firefox does not maximize correctly

This is a bug in Firefox itself. Not anything on your side. It only happens when you turn off the titlebar in the customize settings. It's supposed to be fixed in v73 but marked as won't fix in older versions.

Re: Popup styling...

That's going to depend on the theme you are using. But it's style by the gtk theme so it will be in your themes gtk-3.0 folder.

Re: gthumb display menu text instead of icons

Pix has that exact same functionality but without the "icon only" issues you have with gthumb. That's why I was curious why you don't just use Pix which comes with your Mint install.

Re: gthumb display menu text instead of icons

What are it's advantages over Pix that comes with Mint? Pix is based off an older version of Gthumb.

I'm pretty sure you're out of luck. Maybe I'm wrong but I think that's just how it's designed.

Re: LM 19.3 Cinnamon - window preview title keeps showing

As you can imagine, this experience - and ones somewhat similar to it - are pretty frustrating for the user, especially if the problem is frequent and/or requires - for a temporary fix - logging off and back on again Absolutely. I also use Mint with Cinnamon every day :) The other unfortunate thing...

Re: LM 19.3 Cinnamon - window preview title keeps showing

Frankly, I'm sick of all these UI problems - and more testing would avert some of them. Sorry but the dev team simply can't test for all these things. Users do things and run into things that we simply don't sometimes. And some that we never even think to try. That's what the beta is for. If people...

Re: What happened to Cinnamenu?

Just for general reference. If you find yourself without a start menu, you can always right click on the panel which will bring up the applet settings so you can add one back :)

Re: 19.3, Why so many removed features on the Cinnamon Applets ?

- No more ability to show windows from all screens on the Grouped Window list The way this should work is if you have a single instance of the applet it will show the windows from all screens. If you have instances on each screen, it will show only the ones from that screen. Is there a different us...

Re: What happened to Cinnamenu?

Just be aware that this is unsupported and unmaintained currently. It could break or cause problems with any update to Cinnamon. It isn't likely to until at least the next major version of Cinnamon but just keep it in mind.

Devs - please, please do not go the way of the Evil Empire.

Re: [SOLVED] Where is the option to customize window buttons?

I know users never like when things like this are removed but they are typically done with a reason. I don't know if this one was ever really explained. Very few desktop environments still support the use of metacity (aka window border) themes. This has led to a lot of newer themes having limited su...

Re: [Xubuntu] Issue with xed when saving files

If I was going to make a very first rough guess at this I'd say your icon theme isn't providing the icon in the size needed to show in xed's tab. It's a shot in the dark but I've seen things like this before.

FTFY I find it rude and bad form to change in a quote box what a poster posted. JosephM did not say what that quote says and changing what he said is condescending and poor manners.
