Firefox updates - empty changelogs

Hi

Just a general question, if anyone has a clue:
I've noticed that whenever Firefox has an update, the changelog is always empty (No changelog available). How come?

Re: xset m

Nope, none.
It runs just as before, but without change to mouse speed.

xset m

Heyy I just re-installed a fresh Mint 18.3, and I'm trying to change the mouse speed as I've done on my previous installation with xset m 5 1 although nothing is happening. Has something changed? The pointer used to go flying of if the value was to high, but no matter if I set it to 5 or 1000 its st...

Re: [SOLVED] Intel-microcode

I'll just have to sit back and relax until there's a new kernel update then, and hope its been fixed.

Thanks again for clarifying !

Re: [SOLVED] Intel-microcode

Just a quick follow up here;

How does updating the microcode relate to the Spectre bug? Will it solve the issue, or are there any further steps that needs to be taken?

Re: Intel-microcode

Oh, nice ! :)

And when there is new microcode released, do I have to go into the driver manager and do anything or is this done automatically?

[SOLVED] Intel-microcode

Hey !

I just installed the "Intel-microcode" package, but I'm a bit confused. Does this install the latest microcode when installed, or do I need to do something after the package has been installed? I've checked the update manager but nothing there.

That's right. 4.4 is LTS, and patched in the most recent version; 4.8 is neither of those things as far as I know.

Okay,
thank you for clarifying !

Re: Update kernel problem

Yes, 4.4 worked better. Although once rebooted it tries to load up the 4.13 kernel again. How to set 4.4 as default? Once booted into 4.4, open the update manager, Click View, Linux Kernels from the menu bar. Select 4.13 on the left, then select the one that is installed on the right side, and clic...

By applet RSS I mean the one that can be added to the panel in Cinnamon, to be clear.

RSS reader

Hello

Can anyone tell me where the applet RSS reader keeps all feed data? My home server crashed and I had a bunch of links on it that was served to the RSS reader, that I no longer have unless the RSS reader has them stored that I may sift through and extract... Oh what a shitty day.

Re: Failed to fetch http://mirrors

Thank you kindly, now it runs fine.

I'm noticing that running "apt list --upgradeable" gives result of several packages that does not show up in the update manager. Is this normal?
