Re: Should I update PPA program?

Most of the time, these kinds of in place upgrade system, like in Firefox or Chrome, only work under Windows.
They don't apply to Linux.

As advised to you by richyrich, I would wait and use the official Update Manager to install the most recent version. It will save you some troubles.

Re: Which Mint 18.1 Kernel is Currently Recommended?

Which is exactly why I am not using 67, as I mentioned before I run with whatever Mint recommend to use. I would only entertain going to newer kernel if I was having hardware problems and of course if Mint suggest to use a more recent kernel. When you stay in the same release family, like 4.4.x or ...

Re: Diagonal line when scrollling web pages & streaming video

I'm glad it worked for you with the gfx.xrender.enabled.
If this is enough, don't modify anything else. :wink:

I assume you have this diagonal artifact in Firefox.

force it to true

Re: Screen Tearing.... when will it be solved?

By default the latest Mint has the 4.4 kernel. Manjaro is a rolling distro and you may have already the 4.9 Linux Kernel. This may explain why your hardware is working better in Manjaro compared to Linux Mint/Ubuntu.

It has been proven many times that global surveillance doesn't help against terrorist attacks.
The normal tools, the democratic ones, are giving the same results.
