if you are miserly about disk space you could use --no-install-recommends.
That might break stuff.... Not a good idea. :wink:

Re: WiFi Driver Install 'deb' FAILS: Realtek 8811au

You have one of the (pretty rare) "harder" Realtek chipsets, in that I couldn't find a clear unequivocal solution. However, try what Jeremy31 wrote here:

Looks like it might work for the rtl8811au chipset as well.

I must add that I couldn't connect my desktop to the internet (I'm using my laptop). Should the plug-and-play adapters start working on an offline PC? The most I see is Realtek, then Ralink, which are also found in cheap brandless ones from China. In Linux, Ralink is more often "plug-and-play" than...

Re: Firefox using all memory and making PC crash

On occasion I've seen the same undesirable Firefox behaviour. When it happens, I close Firefox and switch to Chrome. Perhaps that's an acceptable workaround for you, as well.
