Re: [SOLVED] Firefox causes hard freeze/user reinit

OK, Googled and found how by using Update Manager, which shows my Mint 17.3 is using Kernel 3.19.0-32, but I'm also experiencing frequent Firefox freezes

Any other options to fix this?

Re: [SOLVED] Firefox causes hard freeze/user reinit

"linux image upgrade (e.g. 3.16.0-4-686-pae i686) has resolved this issue"

How do you do that?

Re: Win7 to Win 10 Upgrade impact on my dual boot PC

Hi administrollaattori, Checked out the first link you provided, but I don't think the Mint partition was destroyed because after the Win 10 Upgrade there was no Grub option but using F12 to go to the Boot Menu I was able to boot Mint from there and it was fully functional Unfortunately the "Boot-re...

Re: Win7 to Win 10 Upgrade impact on my dual boot PC

From Mint I installed and ran the "Boot-repair" program, which failed and tells me that now there is no Grub installed and of course the previous ability to load Mint via F12 Boot Menu is also now broken :(

Re: Migrate Mint 17.2 programs, files & setting to new PC?

Just gave Aptik a go on the Acer, but it doesn't give any option on where to save the Data, the one I tried just created "File saved ppa.list" in the open Terminal

How can these Backups be used on another PC?
