And feeling mighty incompetent...ha
What do I do, now?

There may be other problems yet to be discovered, in time.
Hopeful that the solution to these issues may correct anything not yet noticed.

I reinstalled Linux Mint 17.3 - Cinnamon, last week.

In reinstalling Pale Moon 27.9.2 (64-bit), I added some new-to-me extensions:

Code: Select all

Add-ons Manager Fix 52.1.7
Eclipsed Moon 1.04 and 
NoScript 5.1.8.5
NoteStruck 1.0.2
Secret Agent (Latest version 1.35  (released 2016-12-22).
Smart Preview for Pale Moon forum 1.3.0
YesScript 2.2 
Disabled, pending complete removal:

Code: Select all

Secret Agent
Root became owner of my file system...
I opened the properties with elevated privileges, and manually changed the owner to my user name of:

Code: Select all

/home and /opt.
History is not updating and this extension is not functional:

Code: Select all

History Submenus II 3.1.2.1
Saved Passwords are inconsistent in function.
Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Maybe age related, before corruption.

The browser option to

Code: Select all

show my windows and tabs from last time
, is grayed out and not available.

The Weather Desk let fails to function though the API key and location fields are population.

I suspect the culprit is Secret Agent and have it disabled, with the intent to remove it. It is no longer supported and no longer needed, per their web site. Last update was in 2016.

Code: Select all
