Do anyone know how to make sliders (scroll bars) in LM 19.1 Tessa Mate sane again? Not everybody after 60 have 20/20 vision. These scroll bars are about 1/16" wide and drop down arrows are missing.This problem is ignored by LM developers for months. I'm still ruining LM 18.3 Sylvia Mate on my deskto...

Re: After trying Tara ... pleas for the developers

Thanx for your reply. Maybe you did not understand my point: I'm making backup of OS and if something broke or corrupt, I'm using that backup to return to point when I make that backup and everything worked like SWISS WATCH.

Hello sergio_63, I'm extremely interested to try your PeerGuardian experiment, but because I'm still newbie, I need step by step instruction how to do it.

Re: Waterfox not playing Flash content

I'm using Waterfox 56.2 on LM 18.3 Mate and everything including flash content play is working perfect. Go to Tools>Add-ons>Plugings and check if Shockwave Flash is there and if is enabled. Hope this will help.
