Thanks for the excellent information Rene. Do you know where the experimental support is, url? It is easy for me to reinstall LM18.2 so I would be happy to give kernel 4.9 a try as long as there were step by step instructions. Thanks. ...

How to uninstall non English fonts? LM18

Hi,

When I use the graphics program Pinta, the font selection lists many variants of Noto Serif and other fonts that are non English and which I do not use.

Is there a way to remove all but essential LM 18 fonts?

Thanks.

I've disabled Linux Mint from updating Firefox. I'll source Firefox separately from now on. Too many problems otherwise.

100% FIX

I downloaded Firefox for Linux 64 and the problem is fixed.

There is a problem with the Mint version of Firefox. Using the original version solved the problem.

The right context menu is back to normal and working.

Re: Linux Mint 18 firefox right click context menu - solved kinda

Just updated Firefox through the update manager, Mint 18 and Firefox 48, and the problem is back.

Right context menu has dozens of options, instead of the usual few.

How can I repair Firefox?

Thanks.
