Hello, to resolve the problem with wlan/wifi in LMDE 4 just execute in terminal: sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf Paste this at the end of the .conf file text: [device] wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no Save now and everything works fine (maybe restart afterwards). Cu Dr. Octagon

Re: Urgent Firefox ESR Update - security vulnerability is exploited

Hello, it's good to know that the two " 0-Days " were finally closed also with the final release of the regular Firefox update version (but 6 days later than possible with 68.6.1 - a long time with such vulnerabilities). When I look at "your linked" post I am amazed that so much resonance was genera...

Re: Urgent Firefox ESR Update - security vulnerability is exploited

What's this all about? Telling me I don't know how to act on the internet... and that a PLEASE (at the very beginning of my first post) is a barking order in a harsh tone to the developers? Or is this really more about fixing a security hole as quickly as possible like Debian did yesterday? Anyway, ...

Re: Urgent Firefox ESR Update - security vulnerability is exploited

Thank you for one of the most hollow and lofty replies I expected... I'm almost at a loss for words. I didn't know that you are one who analyzes every snippet of script before loading a website and only then visits the site with a clear conscience. Extraordinary... that's a major line of defense.

Re: Urgent Firefox ESR Update - security vulnerability is exploited

In addition:

By the way, i have installed the "original" Debian Firefox until the release of the updated Linux Mint Firefox. It is noticeable that the Linux Mint Firefox is 10 Megabyte larger than the Debian Firefox.
For whatever reason... Can someone explain this!?

Urgent Firefox ESR Update - security vulnerability is exploited

Hello,

please provide the updated Firefox ESR 68.6.1 in the repo, as the underlying vulnerability is already exploited in the wild! :shock:

Re: Konsole (KDE) full of bugs - Can I fix that?

Hello, it's actually quite ergonomic, at least for me, to make all commands ever entered available again by using the arrow keys up and down in the terminal. Or by calling the file "bash_history" in your home directory - there all entered commands are listed chronologically and can also be edited (r...

The problem is the same : "Cinnamon has just crashed (the actual message is in french).
OK, how about www.deepl.com - so you can speak perfect German, English or whatever you want - so tell us which error message is displayed. ;)

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Try first to deinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau AFTER (!) nvidia-driver installation (this is the dafault open source driver for nvidia which might be still interacting). And a hint "for" stuttering videos (even if nvidia-driver is running correctly): Open Firefox, write about:config in the url-ba...

Using the browser, the link http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian works fine. Is that the link that should be pointed to in Software Sources or is that just specific for Germany and surrounding areas.
