Re: Problems installing on extended partition...

Thank you to all who responded to my request for information. After reading all the suggestions, I decided that, at this stage, I would be most comfortable with extending /dev/sda6 and that the modification should be done through Windows, as it was formatted with the ntfs filing system. So, I booted...

Re: Which discontinued project do you miss the most ?

Way, way back in the 1980s when I was using an IBM compatible, my favourite application was Sidekick (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borland_Sidekick) and then I abandoned the PC when Microsoft Windows was released and went to the Acorn A5000.

Many browsers nowadays do it natively, hence the demise of the add-on. I know that firefox, chrome and slimjet do it.
If I create a sync in, say, Firefox, will I be able to sync the bookmarks in Chromium, or Brave?

LM v18.3 Mate is my every day distro but I run Namib Mate, Manjaro Cinnamon, Antergos Mate, and Fedora Mate in Virtual Box, so that I can have some variety without upsetting the stability I need for day to day computing.
