Re: Firefox problem after updating

If you open up a terminal and run Firefox from there, it will report any errors.
Post the errors back here so people can help or it may just give you the answer you were looking for.

Re: Will Mint 19 Finally Drop Flash Support?

I can't remember the last time a site asked to enable flash.
Most OS now will not install flash on new installations although it's available in Software Manager.

Re: Manjaro overtakes Mint in Distrowatch page-hit rankings

I think it's health to check out different distro. Usually have 4 or 5 on the go at one time. Been using Manjaro off and on for a few years now, more on lately. Mint is rock solid and works. Manjaro software packages are more up to date. Both Mint and Manjaro are both number 1 in my books or on my c...

I find LuckyBackup a bit more user friendly. Defaults are fine, but you can tweak it a bunch.
just another frontend for rsync
Been using LuckyBackup for years, it just works. :D

Re: Thank You for 6 Great Years and Good-Bye!

I run most or have tried most Linux OS and Mint is fantastic. I will never stop using this or that, just use what works for me.
If your happy with what you are using, then you are using the right OS.
Good Luck! :D

Re: Linux Mint 19 - Phone Home Private User Data?

Even though Mint will never phone home, people will always have it in the back of thier mind, is it phoning home?

Re: A forum section for OS issues is needed

If your having issues with Mint, I would suggest by starting to check your HDD for failure first.

Then check memory failure and so on.

Mint has been solid.

I'm INSERVICE as of today using Debian9.30

so far, so good-- some small glitches. Firefox is at version 52 -- should be at 58.
That took me about 2 min to fix. :)

Everything worked out of the box for me with xfce.
