Re: When for FF 66.0.4?

Should be when for Firefox 66.0.5!!

Why is the repository for Mint so slow? And, before some jerk responds saying do this or that as a workaround, I am running Mint and see no reason for subverting it with changes or workarounds. If I wanted to use a different distro, I would do so.

Speculation and suspicion are what cause searches for evidence. Shutting down same is merely a means to thwart a search for evidence.

Re: When for FF 66.0.4?

Any estimate in 66.0.4 getting into the repository? Fortunately, I dual boot and can use Windows 10 when needed. It is already updated and the game playing has ended. So far as alternative browsers - Firefox was the least evil in the past and easiest to navigate. It was secure and trustworthy - not ...

Re: When for FF 66.0.4?

I noticed there is no "easy" means to turn off Firefox updates. kind of sounds like Microsoft. Must be they have something really important they want loaded on our computers. Food for thought folks!!!

Re: [SOLVED TEMPORARILY] ALL Add ons suddenly stopped working in Firefox 66.3

I was referring to Windows 10 - I should have mentioned that fact. I suppose Windows 7 is a victim of no support from Microsoft! Just the continuing saga of forcing Windows 10 onto everyone - directly or indirectly. My sole reason for using Mint is to get away from Microsoft. Difficult, as their jun...

Re: [SOLVED TEMPORARILY] ALL Add ons suddenly stopped working in Firefox 66.3

On Windows it fixed itself after about 24 hours. Not so on Mint - so I went to config:about and fixed it myself. Depend on nothing/no one to do anything right these days - all follow the Microsoft model (just jamb everything down the user's throats) - end rant.

WINE 4.0 - easy install

I have found WINE to be totally useless as it is available on 19.1. Hence, I did some digging and found this full set of instructions:

Hope this can help some other users.

Re: SOLVED How to get rid of Brave

Looking into the far future, I see no time when I will be installing software not from the repository. This BRAVE browser failure is enough to cure me.

Thank you very much - I should have come here and asked in the first place, instead of wasting a couple of hours floundering around on my own.

SOLVED How to get rid of Brave

The message says, in part: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-dev.list:3 In order to properly do updates this must be removed. I can find it easily, and its other offending brothers - not a problem. Getting rid of them is the problem - there are several in that directory. I tried SUDO SU and got ...

SOLVED: Thunderbird locks up the computer after sending email

Installed 19.1 this morning as an update. Everything on browsing works fine. However, after sending an email using Thunderbird - the computer locks. Must be hard stopped (switched off using the power switch) to restart. Computer is useless without email, so I have reverted back to 19.0 until this ca...
