Re: Firefox icon SOLVED

Ah, now, if I revert back to square icons the Firefox icon remains as a round icon. That's not a problem for me but thought I'd mention it.

Re: Firefox icon

Sorry, I must be really thick. The stuff about bash means nothing to me and I thought Nemo was a Cinnamon thing. If I try to open the Desktop folder and right click then select Open With > Text Editor I get a load of gibberish, nothing about an icon= line. I'm doing something wrong! I update via the...

If you look at $HOME/Desktop/firefox.desktop, what is "Icon=" set to.
Sorry, can you explain that a bit more, I'm (still) a newb when it comes to the Terminal, etc.

Re: Firefox icon

Ah, it's the same size if I use the 'square' icons, if I change to round icons then the Firefox icon is supersize, same as if I log-on in my own account.

Re: Firefox icon

If I use the standard 'square' icons then the Firefox icon is the correct size but it's supersize if I revert back to the round icons.

Re: Firefox icon

Interesting, as the icon for the new user is the correct size (same as all others).

Re: Firefox icon

Tried that. I deleted the icon then did 'add to desktop' to get a new icon - still extra large.

Firefox icon SOLVED

The Firefox icon on my desktop has increased in size by about 100%. Others remain at original size. Happened not long after I updated to latest version of Firefox but can't be totally sure that's anything to do with it. Tried right clicking on icon and Resize Icon, doesn't work (but works on other i...

Re: After 20 attempts, finally registered on forum!

I never use Logout. I just close the tab. If that helps, or makes any difference. Not sure that helps if you clear cookies when you close browser / power off PC Thanks. But I don't see this as an issue. Power Off the PC? Are you crazy? OK, it's not an issue for you. Sometimes I want, or need to, po...

It's on the open forum. Still had to try several times before I could log in. Oh well, I'll be patient, must be a real...

Re: After 20 attempts, finally registered on forum!

I'm pleasantly surprised at how quickly the message board and main site were restored and I understand it'll take a little while to get things sorted completely but just FYI, I'm still having to make several attempts at logging in and the Captcha isn't clear: I've been unable to distinguish an N fro...

Um, isn't it a good idea to keep the forum software up-to-date rather than use an old version, as was the case.

Re: Great that we are back

Good to see the main site and message board up and running again so quickly but I echo what Cosmo says. Log-in is a pain (and the Captcha isn't user-friendly) I have a real problem: I have logged off and back in this evening several times. On the 2 last occasions my log in had been rejected and I wa...

Re: Power on fails after Linux Mint shutdown - OK on cold bo

If anyone can come up with an answer - or suggestions - for Paul I'd be interested as I have the same problem. Two desktops (self build), both Asrock H81M, one running an Intel G3250, other an Intel G1840. If we have a power cut, or if I re-boot (G1840) PC, it won't boot for hours. I can hear the po...
