Re: Favicons Missing in Firefox Bookmarks

Yeah, I noticed 'checkmarks' is actually successful in grabbing all favicons when I run it, but 2/3 or 3/4 of them don't display in bookmarks. I suppose I could leave a comment to the dev on the extension page.

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

I could go on (and on) but short and sweet.. My current computer, a Dell Inspiron 3558 Laptop, came with Windows 10 on it. I used Win10 for a while (ugh) and put up with all the weirdness, but I guess about a year ago, the creator of Classic Shell (start menu replacement) decided he was stopping dev...

Re: Favicons Missing in Firefox Bookmarks

Yeah same scenario for me. I ended up adding the extension 'checkmarks' (I think it's supposed to be about the best solution for favicons right now) and it seemed to work somewhat, but there's still quite a few missing. I just started using FF again after using Pale Moon for several years so I'm hav...

Re: what are the key things that could be improved in firefox?

I very strongly dislike that with current FF you have to click repeatedly to actually get to the bookmarks. I mean, the whole purpose of a bookmark is to get to a url a.s.a.p. - and now they add extra clicks and obstacles to it. Are you just navigating to the bookmarks using the main menu on the ri...

Re: what are the key things that could be improved in firefox?

I never, ever, scroll thru all of the bookmarks.... too tedious, I have well over 5,000 bookmarks in FF.... that many just in my SubTopic of Motorcycles... and a couple 1000 in OtherBookmarks.... so, I just hit Alt-B <enter> and go straight to Showall and search for what I want. The first 15 bookma...

Re: what are the key things that could be improved in firefox?

Hmmmm, I use Showall Bookmarks many times a day, use it to find specific bookmarks pertaining to a topic search..... life would be horrible without 'showall' edit: The following is based on using the 'bookmarks menu' button added to the toolbar.. I see now that the 'show all' at the bottom is/does ...

I like it again, doesn't take up too much screen space if you hide titlebar, and it just seems to work everywhere. I can use bitwarden which I...

Cinn 4.0 and the underlines in grouped window list icons

Blech.. I dislike, I would prefer it go back to the way it looks with Cinn 3.8, highlighting the icon. Don't get me wrong I love grouped window list, I wish I knew about it and was already using before. GWL seems like it works functionally the same with a 3.8 theme (as far as I can tell) but with th...

Re: Cinnamon Spices login

Apparently this is not a popular issue to have lol. Anyway, the exact wording of the error I get trying to log in with Google on the desktop (using Firefox) is this:

An Error Was Encountered

The URI you submitted has disallowed characters.

Re: Cinnamon Spices login

I joined G+, and still login didn't work. Tried using my wifes Facebook login, that errored too. I got on chat a while ago and asked for help, a few of them also couldn't login using Google but could using github.

Cinnamon Spices login

Hope this the right place for this question. I've never been able to login to Spices. The only way I could is with my Google account, I'm not on Facebook or github. I was never technically on Google+ so, is this why I get an error every time? Isn't Google+ ready to shut down anyway?

Re: VOTE ! Mint-Y-LOGO... A New Version Of The Linux Mint Logo !

I had to get on here and say, I installed this new logo (up at opendesktop.org) and it's really sharp looking. I believe it should become default, just my 2 cents. Thanks, SebastJava

Re: [WARNING: TEST RIGS ONLY] How to upgrade today from 19 Tara to 19.1 Tessa

Thanks for this, working good so far on my Dell laptop so I'm relieved already. I have all panel icons set at 16px to make it look the way I'm used to. Had to re-add CinnVIIStark menu after not compatible warning, but after updating applets works fine (edit: 'sound 150%' broken, 'sound' works fine)....

Re: Curious - When Does Nemo 4.0 Make it to Mint 19?

I wonder if all Cinnamon themes that currently still work on 3.8 will still work with Cinnamon 4.0.
