Thunar settings discarded at end of session

Anybody know why Thunar settings are discarded at the end of a session? This doesn't happen on Xubuntu 18.04 or LinuxMint 19 xfce or Solydx, just on LinuxMint 19 mate.

@GM10
Thank you very much.
I'm slow on the uptake, but I work hard at it.
Everything is working well now.

Re: Of the 3 menus offered, the 2 MATE menus fail

Thank you for your reply. It's good to know that someone who understands MATE is on the forum. However, in my view, a "misconfiguration", or installed code that misconfigures, on my system IS a bug. 1. I did not disable any "Places" option. There are 3 menus. Which are you calling the "default" menu...

Of the 3 menus offered, the 2 MATE menus fail

When using either "Main Menu (The Main MATE menu)" or "Menu Bar (A custom menu bar)" and "Places" is selected, then no matter which place you click on (Home, Desktop, Downloads, etc) then Xplayer pops up and tries to play the sorted contents of that place, whatever that happens to be .pdf, .txt, .ta...

Re: Caja 1.20.2 rename bug

firefox wrong theme

Mint 19 xfce:
Firefox 61.0.1 ignores Window Manager's theme selection. Uses some black, no title, no border, theme that I have never seen. Everything else uses the proper theme.

Re: Unable to boot cinnamon 18.3

Wow. I finally got Cinnamon 18.3 "sortof" installed. And, to me, it is the most un-linux-like distro yet. Scary. I've run linux for decades: at least a dozen distros, each through several upgrades. This installation is a horror. It started with the writing of the iso to USB. I didn't find mintstick ...
