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: Cups 2.2.7 and chromium-based browsers

Reports suggest this has been fixed in cups 2.2.8. Hopefully this will appear in Ubuntu repositories soon and will be available in Update Manager..

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.

Re: caution on upgrading to Wine 4.0 bionic

I had the same experience. It seems that the update has changed the directory structure apparently resulting in broken symlinks. See viewtopic.php?f=47&t=293660

Re: Update has broken Wine

Flemur, That is after the "wine not found" error. There is now a wine directory in /opt but not in /usr/lib. I suspect that this has resulted in a symlink error(s)/ omission(s) in the update package. I am checking some of them. For example, /etc/alternatives/wine is broken because it has a symlink t...

This doesn't look right. Package Manager says that I now have these installed:
wine-stable
wine-stable-amd64
wine-stable-i386:i386
wine1.6

Re: Amazon Prime video won't play in Firefox

Amazon Prime video works perfectly for me in LM 19.1 and Firefox 66.0. It has also worked in previous versions of LM and Firefox. I think you need to carefully check your settings. In Preferences you need DRM enabled and in Addons>Plugins set Widevine to Always Active.

Re: Can't Play Amazon Video In Linux Browsers

Firefox 65 plays Amazon Prime Video perfectly for me.
Check these Firefox settings:

Preferences>General: Play DRM-controlled content - enabled
Plugins: Widevine Content Decryption Module - set to Always Activate.
