Re: Firefox v63.03 - error after closing...

This is why I switched to WaterFox. FF has been doing this for me since v60. I think it's FireJail on mine

Re: Linux mint 19

Hello gordie1969 https://thumb.ibb.co/dA8CQ8/hello.gif Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :) I don't bother with fire jail or ufw and never had a problem with banking or stock trading. If it makes you feel safer then by all means use them. Do you use a firewall on your router? I can see...

Re: how common these days is a firefox browser that slows the system and causing problems like this?

Thanks for the ideas to try Redlined. I've switched to WaterFox awhile back but it even is starting to act weird? My main problem with both FF and WF is the delay I get when typing. I will be typing away and look and nothing is there then all of a sudden it all fills in :?

Cinnamon 3.6.7 memory leak

My Cinnamon process will creep up in memory even with my computer idle. Anyway to fix this problem? I've got so I restart everyday to get the memory back. Do the other desktops leak memory like Cinnamon? Thanks System: Host: pepi-HP-Z600-Workstation Kernel: 4.4.0-139-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4....

CPU on TOP and System Monitor

Which program do you trust? I'm having issues with the Web Content process in WaterFox eating up a lot of memory and CPU. Appears the two programs show different information about the Web Content process ???

Re: ShutDown Vbox before Shutting down Linux

Always had a habit of shutting down all running programs before shutting down the OS. Probably from my Windoz years :mrgreen: At one point when I was in IT we had a check list posted on the wall of the server room. It listed the shutdown order of all applications, servers, network switches, routers...

Re: Keeping software on your OS..

I keep programs that I don't use deleted off my SSD. One thing about Linux ... you can install and delete programs without worrying about trashing your OS like Windoz
