Re: Firefox 82: some websites do not work properly

<just thinking aloud> Firing a bunch of developers and shortening the update release cycle intervals may not be compatible with ensuring software quality. </just thinking aloud> This showed up for me yesterday, I was updating some bank info and want to go to a separate page and Firefox refused to l...

Re: Foxclone - linux image backup, restore & clone

I have a 6 TB USB backup drive.

I partitioned it into two halves, NTFS and EXT4.

that gives me all the options I need, Windows is happy, Linux don't care.

Re: Fireox 82: some websites do not work properly

@AZgl1500 The issue with that web site only appear when I login, so I guess it is a bad example. My banking site also has issue which is a bigger concern.I contacted the bank and they were aware there is an issue but have not done anything. I loaded Firefox in safe mode which I think disables all e...

Tried to do a PrtScrn but that does not s...

In Firefox you can right click a word and get option to set the language, or add any variety of your own misspelled words, -and it's a setting in the settings where you click the hamburger. It's probably set to English UK. If y...
