Would that be my sda2 partition?

Open the iso using Engrampa for example.

Also, why would they offer the drivers to download on linux if I can't make use of it?
They are for older systems like Mint 17.

Good question. Run out and fetch us an average user. We shall observe and take note!
I mostly write the password on the login screen, and if updates is available, I write the second time when installing updates.

Re: How to properly install Firefox in Windows

The proper way is to install user's Application Data folder. It can be done the next way when the installer asks to install, select no, so Firefox is installing into user's folder without administrative privileges. :wink: About a Fox. :lol: https://www.iltalehti.fi/kotimaa/201809162201201814_u0.shtml
