Loading symbol after using Firefox

Post by Arp »

Hi,

I have 19.3 cinnamon, and often, after I start Firefox I see the round loading symbol whenever I am on the desktop or on the top bar of any application. That still persists after closing Firefox.

Any idea what it is and how to fix it?

Thanks.

FWIW, I have the same thing on Mint 19.3 Xfce version; tried changing cursor themes etc and no fix. It'd going right now...(seemed to start when I started synaptic, then never goes away)
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?

I am not experiencing this but assume it'll be related to startup notifications. I.e., does this happen also when you toggle on and/or off the "Startup Notification" choice in the launcher?

On Xfce in the properties dialogue you find by right clicking a menu entry, say. In Cinnamon, other than as StartupNotify=<true|false> in the .desktop file for the entry under /usr/share/applications --- good question.
