Re: Firefox ESR 52.9 last one on Jessie (LMDE 2)?

As far as I remember, I've chosen the Debian FF ESR branch since the beginning of LMDE 2, because the initial LMDE2 repostiory had only inserted the normal firefox (without ...

My current state is 52.9.0esr-1~deb8u1 and under Versions (Synaptic) I can also see the version 60.2.2esr~linuxmint1+betsy, the one you specified. I just wasn't sure why I see: 1. my installed Debian (52.x-deb8u1) version as the last default and 2. the 60.x linuxmint1+betsy one without any notice at...

Firefox ESR 52.9 last one on Jessie (LMDE 2)?

Hello, can anyone tell me if Jessie's (LMDE 2) Firefox ESR 52.9 will ever update to 60.x ESR? For example, I read about the package "RUST" that is needed but not right included in Jessie (or something like that), but no concrete answers as to whether Jessie can still get the next higher FF ESR versi...

Hello,

can someone tell me, why the Forum-Link on the homepage (https://linuxmint.com/links.php) does not refer to https://forum but to http://forum instead?

Ok, because it is still a bug - around 2.5 years ago (!) it was first mentioned - I would like to paste this as an actual warning for concerned users / sensible systems (it happens to me every day!): "Lock screen" does not actually lock anything #194 https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-screensaver...

Re: Will the Mint 17.3 wifi card solution [Qualcomm Atheros QCA6164] work on LMDE2?

Maybe this is the cause: Running "modprobe ath10k_pci" shows that the ath10k_pci module looks for the firmware in a folder called QCA6174, but not in any folder called QCA6164."

Hello, first... Gnome Editors on Cinnamon - not just the name is different. ;) Maybe I am wrong...
