A number of sites are now complaining about firefox, why?

6 of my banking sites and 4 other sites are telling me I need an up to date browser, but I have the latest version of firefox running. Is it because it is in Linux and they are all ceasing some sort of support for Linux?

So maybe there is something to this with version 20?[Solved]

So I've made several posts about both my computers having a lot of problems with the new Version 20 OS with Cinnamon. On suggestion from a family member, I've started watching CPU temps. Both computers are running quite a bit hotter than they did with the previous version. There is definitely someth...

Re: How do I change what program an extension opens?

Ok, I looked in the file manager and I can choose what a specific extension opens with, but is there a page/window where I can go through all of the extensions?

How do I change what program an extension opens?

In Cinnamon how do I choose what program, such as clementine, is opened with an extension such as .flac? I've totally gone dumb and I can't even search for an answer.

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

I forgot to take photos, I will still do so.

I've noticed that the unified dongle gets quite hot when it slows down, almost like it is overpowering.

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

So I disconnected the Mouse for 24 hours and just used the touchpad and system seems ok. Mouse uses the Logitech unifying transceiver, it's a Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse.

Is there a way to play with drivers or are they built into the kernel?

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

Update: Laptop still sees slowdowns and lockups after about 12 hours of use. Tower seems ok, though has slowed down a couple times where to be safe, I rebooted.

It might indeed be the logitech mouse, but I don't have another mouse to use right now. It uses their unifying receiver.

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

I may have fixed part of the problem in that I removed part of that line in grub. Booting up normal but there is one usb message, it flashes too quick to write it down.

Re: Don't know where to report this: Both computers locking up with 20.0

But I'm not familiar with how the terminal behaves with the less command and binaries, how do I copy it all?
