Ok, that explains it. Somewhere in between the forums and your location is a problem. It's your internet connection to the forums but the problem could be anywhere in the world.

Re: Just say NO to Mint19

Exactly, it's more secure but potentially completely befuddling in it's extra complexity. One step forward for the tech department and two steps back for marketing.... "improvement" is too subjectively localized or put differently chaotic. If nothing else it appears to be extremely unprofessional/a...

So during the log on and navigating the site, for just a brief second, the website text on a white back ground appears.
I don't see that. Maybe your machine is slow, or your internet connection.

Re: Programs with a larger proportion than the screen.

I have a GTX 1050 and all the programs I install get the same ratio as the screen, how can I fix this one time. What do you mean, "all the programs I install get the same ratio as the screen"? You need to be much more specific, and you need to tell us about your entire system, not just the model of...

I can't reproduce this. I can. The link from https://linuxmint.com/links.php points to forums.linuxmint.com, without the protocol being specified, which causes the browser to not use https:// hence people clicking on the link from that page get an insecure connection. https://image.ibb.co/kazWmp/Sc...
