Re: VPN

I had installed the Windscribe cli which is in Beta and I'm finding that Windscribe runs at boot up and I'm not seeing any obvious setting in the cli to change that. I'd like to only use it when needed since the free version does have a 10 GB monthly limit and 99% of my Internet activity is innocuou...

Comparisons of DNS Resolvers

Has anyone else switched to Cloudflare's DNS 1.1.1.1 ? Seems to be working well here. Any downsides I may not have discovered yet ? :)

Re: Firefox 59...when will it be available?

I spoke a little too soon about the Diagonal Screen Tearing issue with FF. It seemed to be better on my other Mint system but on this one is seems much worse. I'm typing this on Chromium and the tearing issue is not present. I've tried all the settings in FF 59.0.1 with no success...... :? EDIT: Sad...

Re: Firefox 59...when will it be available?

I just got the 59.0.1 update here and everything seems to be working well. Web audio plays just fine and the diagonal screen tearing issue seems to be much improved. No high CPU or Memory usage. :)

Re: Libreoffice does not update since v5.1.6

From the link above: "Note: I just realized that the LibreOffice Fresh PPA still doesn’t include version 6.0. I’ll update the article when I have news about it. For the moment, using the PPA won’t install LibreOffice 6.0". Did they just forget to update the text on that page ? I was going to wait un...

Diagonal Screen Tearing in Firefox

Anybody else experience diagonal screen tearing when scrolling or watching videos in Firefox (58.02, Mint 18.3) ? I've tried to adjust settings in Firefox and looked for updated video drivers from within Mint. I don't remember this happening in Vivaldi but I've un-installed it so can't check again. ...

I don't actually remember getting a level 5 but I just included it to make the point that I have accepted every update that's been offered to Mint 18.3 on this system. :wink:

Re: What is Mint's current "official" recommendation about updates?

I have installed every update ever presented to 18.3 on this computer, level 1-5 and I've never had an issue. Perhaps I've just been lucky but I'll continue to do so....... :wink:

Do you by any chance use the Chrome Browser ? I used the get the same error message but it went away after I deleted Chrome. Might not work for you but worked for me...... :P

Re: How to Determine Meltdown & Spectre Vulnerability

If you installed the available security updates for your kernel, you have the fix for Meltdown. Thanks, that was what I assumed but just wanted to make sure. I update religiously and always accept all offered updates. Firefox 57.0.4 has mitigation in place so that websites can't use the Meltdown an...

Re: How to Determine Meltdown & Spectre Vulnerability

My question is has Linux Mint been updated to mitigate the vulnerabilities ? I use 18.3 and check for updates each day. I assume a patch has been released. :)

Re: shutdown: gnome-keyring-daemon still running

Same problem here with the gnome-keyring-daemon not closing on shut down. Seems like a fairly common issue. It only happens periodically here but on two different systems.

Re: Firefox57.0.1 and Youtube?

What about trying another Browser ? If the YouTube videos load in another browser that would point to an issue with Firefox. If they still don't load that would point more to a system issue. Worth a shot just to see..... :)
