Re: Font sizes

Thanks again Flemur. One thought: if I uninstall/reinstall Firefox, would it solve the problem? I would of course first backup my home files. On this machine I am running a dual partition with 18.3 and 18.2. 18.2 is the one with the Firefox issue. Is Pluma the editor of Mate? Never used it. I very r...

Re: Font sizes

I appreciate your help Flemur but I am losing it...I was hoping that the task would be simpler...I'll keep trying. I have Firefox on two other machines so I haven't lost everything. Thanks again.

Re: Font sizes

Sorry...I'm in trouble again through my own fault. I tried to change back the size of menu bars with about:config (pix> layout.css.devPixelsPerPx) from 1.50 to 1.25 but I typed 1.35 instead and now Firefox won't open. Is it fixable? Thanks.

Re: Selecting updates manually.

Hello, riki. Although Flemur had already suggested something this effect in his post, let me state quite clearly: Linux Mint Update Manager offers updated software packages only for software which has been installed on your system before. To use your example of Mate and Cinnamon: Provided on your s...

There might be the chance, that there is a Cinnamon library used in the Mate DE. Mark the update and see in the description below, which package will actually be updated. If this is an update for a package, which gets used in Mate, than you should apply the update.
I get you. Thanks.

Re: Selecting updates manually.

I have been updating everything that comes through on Levels 1, 2 and 3 (recently quit 4 and 5 to avoid problems) and my question is: should I allow EVERY single update? In other words, for example, if I am running Mate, should I allow a Cinnamon update? Or is a Cinnamon update automatically ignore...

Many thanks Moem. I did what you say a few times and it didn't work. Just tried a few hours later and it worked! Strange. Thanks again for coming in. From now on I will only update levels 1 and 2.

Sylvia 18.3 disaster [SOLVED]

Suddenly, 18.3/mate/32-bit won't start and I've had to install Sonya 18.2 (dual partition) to recover my home files. Have had glitches with Sylvia from day one but never expected it to break. I keep trying to logon but no joy. Any ideas?

Font sizes [SOLVED]

I am running 18.2 Mate 32 bit (Sylvia 18.3 is horrible, never had so many problems with other Linux OSs). Can somebody kindly tell me how to increase font sizes in menu bars on Firefox? I should be very grateful.
