Is it possible that these websites are using an IE-only technology such as ActiveX?
Could be, how does one check?

Re: A browser which can access IE sites

the request is not as strange, as it seems. just today, I've had a request to get access to an Gov't site ( with win-10 ) and it would only load up with IE10 .. which is still available on win-10. :o once the registration was completed, with IE10, then the web site could be accessed with Firefox-72...

Re: A browser which can access IE sites

The reason I have not provided a link to the specific site is that it requires user credentials. I am fully aware of the brokenness of IE, the premise of my post was that this brokenness is known to result in some websites which only work in IE. I don't much care about the differences between Chromi...

Re: A browser which can access IE sites

I am not at all implying that IE is more updated. Exactly the opposite. But there are websites which Chrome/Firefox can't/won't load because they are as ancient and dysfunctional as IE.

The particular site I have in mind is work related.

A browser which can access IE sites

Is there any browser available to run in Mint which can load sites which usually only work properly in Internet Explorer? i.e. sites which might load in Chormium or Firefox but also might have broken elements because the site owner uses Micro$ofts broken development tools and/or don't update anythin...

Re: Dual-boot install across multiple drives questions

I understood that for install alongside it was recommended to shrink the Windows partition manually from inside Windows first to avoid upsetting the registry. As far as installing on two drives, OP wrote A 250G M.2 NVME PCIe drive for the two OSs ... To me this means OP does in fact want the two ope...

Re: Dual-boot install across multiple drives questions

In general anything which is not encrypted by Windows will be accessible from your Linux system but not necessarily the other way around because Windows can't read ext4 file systems. If I were you my strategy would be to install Windows on the NVMe drive first (with appropriate partitioning) then in...

Re: Sound glitches in Mint 19.2 Cinnamon

So it has been some days and I have made some progress. The part of inxi which said wifi was down was a bit weird because I realised when I took my laptop to work that the radio switch was actually on but the wifi at home just wasn't connected. I have found through non-exhaustive testing that there ...

Re: Sound glitches in Mint 19.2 Cinnamon

As far as I can tell it is not actually possible tor oll back the update except using a system snapshot. Why would the Chromium codec cause a system wide problem anyway?

Re: Sound glitches in Mint 19.2 Cinnamon

Booting with the previous kernel didn't fix the problem. How does one revert chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra:amd64?

Sorry for the slow reply, I had to go AFK and then to bed and then to work. I muted all of those things in alsamixer but the problem remains. I can now also confirm that the problem occurs during playback of local video files. Tomorrow I will do a full system back up and then play around with the ke...

Re: Sound glitches in Mint 19.2 Cinnamon

Yes, I reboot fairly regularly. As I said in my first post, I will start playing with the kernel once I have made a full back up (I have all my files but I'd rather not have to reinstall my system). I just bought a new drive for the clone today so I should get to cloning on Saturday. Here is amixer ...

Re: Sound glitches in Mint 19.2 Cinnamon

I didn't make any changes aside from installing QJackCtl. I have a Focusrite Scarlett Solo which I sometimes run my sound through for guitarix (with Jack).

I reinstalled those packages and rebooted. The problem still persists.
