Some of the Add-ons were there in the manager to be enabled, but Adblocker and NoScript were not.

I disabled Add-ons. Did not see option to re-enable. Closed and restarted Firefox. Add-ons still disabled. Quit Mint and rebooted. Add-ons still not enabled. How do I re-enable Add-ons?

Stream w/VLC

Is it still possible to stream YouTube with VLC, or am I doing something wrong? Mint Cinnamon 18 64bit I want to stream a Tutorial with VLC as it offers finer controls, and the ability to loop easily.

Re: Path to DVD

I have seen that. It is good to know how to check the DVD for accuracy from the command line. I usually burn .iso's from the command line.

Re: Path to DVD

Maybe I did not explain well enough that I wanted to verify that the DVD was burned w/out errors. I had already verified the download. I am surprised that CentOS instructions did not explain that the burned DVD needs to be checked to insure it is w/out error as well. I have burned .iso's that did no...

Re: Path to DVD

Wonder what's with that. CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1503-01.iso is what I downloaded. That's what it is named in the Downloads folder when I click on properties.

Re: Firefox Slow

Created new user and logged in. Firefox ran OK. No Scrolling problems. NoScript and AdBlocker not running for new user. Which AdBlocker? AdBlock Plus. uBlock Origin is much more lightweight than Adblock Plus for example, while using the same blocklists. Anyway, indeed it looks to be related to the ...
