How can I use Google Maps in a dark/night mode

Hi all. So my Linux Mint OS on a dark theme. My Firefox browser's "chrome" is also using a dark theme. I have an extension called Dark Background and Light Text that turns virtually every page into a night-mode page. But still, Google Maps bright and white. I want my Google Maps to look something li...

A certain WiFi network starts off very fast, then slows to a halt. Restarting Wifi helps, but only for a moment.

Why does my connection always start off fast, and then tapers off to 0 byte per second?

This problem happens only on a certain WiFi network or two.
I always have to turn off Wifi on my laptop and then turn it back on.

What commands should I run to figure out what's going on?

Ever sent emails to addresses with the # (hashmark/pound/number) symbol ?

Hi all.

Have you sent emails to anyone or any organization that has the # symbol in their email address?

If so, which entities or domains use it?

Who's the handsome black male who amputated his leg due to bone cancer? Has Instagrm. Is now white due to sickness.

I'm looking for name or Instagram account of a black male guy who had bone cancer and decided to have his leg amputated. I understand that the cancer has spread so pervasively that he has turned white. I understand that he's living in his last days. His IG posts, I heard, are normal photos, like "Me...

What female name do you hear in this two-second audio?

The audio begins with "You've reached..." and then a name. What name do you hear?

Let the listener note the "s" sound you hear at the end of the clip is the person's second name.

Ben,

I don't know which software is best. Do you have any recommendations. I installed ten programs that can split, rearrange, remove pages.

Any deterioration in quality when rearranging/splitting/removing_pages from an OCRed PDF?

I'm using a four-foot-tall multifunction MP C4503. ( Link to manual and guides ) It lets you scan as PDF and has built-in OCR technology. From the documents I've scanned, it seems to do an excellent job with text-recognition (OCR). So I don't need to do any further work with OCR. Let's say I scan (w...

Thanks, MuteAnt.

I pressed the Window Key, went to Login Window, then chose the Users tab. In the Automatic Login field, I entered my username. I reboot and now it's solved.

How to bypass LightDM password screen after succesfully entering ecrypt5 password [SOLVED]

When I was on Mint 18.0, which had MDM, after I unlocked ecrypt5, I automatically whisked my way through to my desktop. But now that I'm on Mint 18.3, I have to enter my password on ecrypt5 and then enter my username and password for LightDM. 1. Why the change? 2. How can I bypass the desktop login ...

Revian, thanks for your input. I got the peculiar 404 Error message with other browsers too. How is it for you with other browsers?
