Re: Problem with Amazon

RichardXXX,
Try the Vivaldi browser which works with Amazon Prime and does not include the objectionable Google stuff.

Re: Thunderbird Mail going to Bulk

Is the mail from the "family address" delivered to a "special email account"? If so this account may have been set up to store mail in Bulk unlike the others which are stored separately in their own folders.

Sounds like a double forking bug with your menu. What happens if you change your menu entry's command to timeshift-launcher?
That makes no difference. Clearly the menu entry is correct because it runs from any source other than mintmenu.

Timeshift does not run from mintmenu

On one of my computers, after upgrade to 19.3 Mate, Timeshift does not run from the default menu on the bottom panel. If I create an icon for Timeshift on the panel it does run. It also runs from the menu bar I have on the top panel. These log entries appear to be associated with the problem: ENTRY ...

Re: SSL cert error on community.linuxmint.com

The certificate problem is back (at least in the UK.) Is it the Sucuri issue again?

Re: SSL cert error on community.linuxmint.com

Switched on this morning and no problem at community.linuxmint.com or blog.linuxmint.com . Certificates are as expected. Unless something has been tweaked server end the cause remains a mystery.

Re: SSL cert error on community.linuxmint.com

The same problem exists at https://blog.linuxmint.com because the certificate is issued to the main domain linuxmint.com not the subdomain blog.linuxmint.com . This is what browsers do not like. Of course, it can be overridden by creating a security exception but it is probably disconcerting to some...

Re: SSL cert error on community.linuxmint.com

The certificate does not match the subdomain and is therefore rejected by browsers.

Re: SSL cert error on community.linuxmint.com

I confirm what jean.jordaan reported using Firefox and Vivaldi. It is still common to find subdomains sharing a certificate of the main domain but browsers complain. One can of course accept the risk and continue to the site, and I do this for sites I trust where there is no financial risk. The ques...

Xviewer - PDF bookmarks do not copy

I recently copied a PDF file with added bookmarks to a new location and found that the bookmarks were not copied. However, if the file is moved the bookmarks are retained. Obviously, there are occasions when I want to copy a PDF with bookmarks. Is this a bug with xviewer?

Re: Firefox Profile Missing Or Inaccessible

I do not understand why you felt it was necessary to try setting a new location and name for the FF profile. Why do you use a "special directory"? Check in /yourusername/.mozilla/firefox and see that profiles.ini points to the name of the profile in that directory. If everything appears correct you ...

Re: Cups 2.2.7 and chromium-based browsers

Hello HAWR, I'm sure there are others too. I mainly use Firefox but I am particularly impressed at present with Vivaldi although it does not provide the same fine cookie control I like in Firefox. Also, I have always been impressed by its founder, Jon von Tetzchner , way back to the good old days of...

Re: Update has broken Wine

I used Timeshift to roll back and then install updates except wine. That fixed it. I have blacklisted wine in Update Manager as the update is clearly broken.
