Re: Linux Mint 18 - random freezing

I think the freezing occurred from a Firefox add-on, as I changed the add-on and have not had the problem for about five days.

Re: Linux Mint 18 firefox right click context menu

In Firefox I want to edit the right mouse click menu that has maybe 30 plus options for some reason.

I installed Chormium and the right click has 5 options. Something weird with firefox.

Linux Mint 18 firefox right click context menu - 100% FIX

Hi,

I did a fresh install of Linux Mint 18.

When I right mouse click in Firefox, the context menu has a very long and unwanted list of options, such as "play" etc.

How can I restore the context menu to something more functional, less options?

Thanks. :)
