Re: Youtube halts everything in firefox

Noticed the same issues here, started noticing it approximately two weeks ago: LM 18.x (seems to be the same on all versions, also on Xubuntu 16.04.2) FireFox 54.0 YouTube video constantly streams and stalls for rebuffering. Doesn't matter if the content is HD or otherwise. Vimeo video as well. At f...

Re: Unattended Upgrades Working in LM 18.1??

I don't know anything about the unattended upgrades but if you were willing to upgrade to 18.2, it introduces a command-line method of accessing updates not just with apt, but with full access to the Mint level system. The command is mintupdate-tool (type 'mintupdate-tool -h' (no quotes) in a termi...

Re: Unattended Upgrades Working in LM 18.1??

Being an Ubuntu package, I wonder how it could discern Linux Mint software upgrade levels, and therefore is incompatible on principle, and thus no longer included by default. Hi Joe! Thanks for the reply. You are correct in that Unattended Upgrades does not recognize the Mint upgrade level system. ...

Unattended Upgrades Working in LM 18.1 or 18.2??

Hi everyone- I am planning on migrating a user from Mint 17 up to 18.1 and one of the features I am using in their Mint 17 is Unattended Upgrades. I have it set up only for Mint and Ubuntu security upgrades. I noticed that on my testing machine LM 18.1 Cinnamon has not included the Unattended Upgrad...

Re: Qiana/Trusty and ESM?

Hi Cosmo!
Ah... OK... I do remember hearing a bit about that now that you remind me.

OK. So I just left that feature commented off.

Thanks!

Qiana/Trusty and ESM?

Hi everyone- A quick question regarding the new 'Unattended Upgrades' pkg as applied to Mint 17.0 Qiana: I have installed the new package and applied the regular {distro ID}:{codename} parameters for Qiana/Trusty. It runs fine and takes care of security updates only. But the new package provides the...

Re: Thunderbird 45.8.0 hangs on new Gmail password window

I just want to know, "Who did the repair Thunderbird or someone else?" Nobody. The Ubuntu maintainers finally updated the repository with the current TB version. That is possible. Although Gmail may have contributed as well. I just verified the fix on one of my test machines: T-Bird 52.1.1 fresh of...

Re: Thunderbird 45.8.0 hangs on new Gmail password window

Hey folks!
Just saw a new upstream security update for T-Bird in my Mint Update Mgr.
They jumped T-Bird up to 52.1.1 so maybe your voices were heard.
If you use Lightning, it will want to update to version 5.4.

Anyone out there confirmed it as solved?

Re: Thunderbird 45.8.0 hangs on new Gmail password window

No, didn't work!
When I switched it over from 'Normal Password' to OAuth2 and then tried to view my IMAP folders in the browser pane, I got the "new and improved" Gmail authentication window, which of course did not work.

OK fellow Mint-o-philes... Here's some good news on this Thunderbird deal: Still using 45.8.0 here 1) Open Tbird and begin to add an account as you normally would. Username and PW. Click Continue. 2) The next panel will give you a few choices. Choose 'Manual Config'. This will open a new window... U...

Re: Thunderbird 45.8.0 hangs on new Gmail password window

No joy here yet.
In sunny California, the Gmail authentication window still hangs when attempting to add an IMAP account in Tbird 45.8.0.

The above linked poster commented that he was seeing the issue solved on his networks in Michigan.
Please post here if you see the fix come down in your area.

Because of how the repositories work for Thunderbird with Linux we should be able to access that update in the year 2187 so I would put your money on Google fixing this.. LOL, say it ain't so Joe!

Re: Thunderbird 45.8.0 hangs on new Gmail password window

Teksonik-
Thanks for your help in trouble-shooting this.
I agree with you, I think this is a change that came only after Gmail changed their registration/verification.
More people are going to come into this problem as the days roll along.

Best,
Allen
