Fresh install, Ubuntu garbage?

Post by Citizen229 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 6:44 pm

Wondering why a fresh install of Mint 19 XFCE comes with Ubuntu boookmarks in Firefox by default? One debian bookmark as well. And not a single Mint bookmark.

It does have Mint as the home page :)

This might be an opportunity, though. Perhaps a bookmark to the "tutorials" Mint Forum?
