Cheers!

I don't really know what to say!
Everyone is really nice here, amazing community!

Guess, I'll just keep doing like before... I mean, the main goal still is to help other users with their issues, right?

Thank you all for your kind words and support! It is really nice to be a part of this friendly community!

Whenever I have time, which is kind of hard right now, since I've just moved with my family into a house, I'll brew that Peppermint beer I've talked about some time ago!

Thank you all!

You don't have to do anything special, what you've been doing since you arrived is perfect; helping people and being a great contributor to this community.  :)

Nice one pin  ;)

BTW, how did you get on with the Palemoon version of ICE? It seems fine as a web Skype container on a low-powered PC.
Title: Re: Annnouncement - New Trusted User
Post by: PCNetSpec on January 30, 2018, 01:03:18 pm
I'm not sure I'll be adding Palemoon support to the default ICE .. it seems to be being supplanted by Waterfox as the most popular Firefox replacement.
Title: Re: Annnouncement - New Trusted User
Post by: pin on January 30, 2018, 01:36:56 pm
As long as a Firefox alternative is present, I'm happy... Although, I didn't have any issues with the Pale Moon SSB's.
I can't install any, anyway... They are to close to Firefox and somehow Netflix thinks I'm running an outdated version of Firefox and doesn't stream. Sorry, but I need to have Netflix somewhere and it's here on Peppermint. Don't have any other choice! Well, I do Google chrome, but that's out of the question... all these chrome/chromium forks just ain't for me!

BTW, thanks murraymint!

Waterfox does look a lot nicer, I think Palemoon was based on a pretty old Firefox. I'm going to give Waterfox a try, it seems pretty fast so far.

Thx!

@Ly
If you want to try basilisk just download the tar file and unpack it with
Code: [Select]
tar -xvf <name of the file>
cd into the newly created directory and run
Code: [Select]
./basilisk
It looks pretty much the same as Firefox before Quantum, but with a komodo dragon instead of a red panda (or fox)

Seriously .. I couldn't live with a pre-quantum Firefox now :)
(spoiled for speed)
Title: Re: Announcement - New Trusted User
Post by: murraymint on February 01, 2018, 04:14:25 pm
Waterfox is faster here. Maybe I should try Firefox with a clean profile though.
Title: Re: Announcement - New Trusted User
Post by: pin on February 01, 2018, 04:29:53 pm
I'm stickig to Firefox here. Is just that, and I've said this too many times already, ...I like to see FF forks, just because there are too many chromium/chrome forks already

If Waterfox is pre-quantum, trust me there's NO WAY it's faster than Firefox .. or even close to it ;)
Title: Re: Announcement - New Trusted User
Post by: murraymint on February 01, 2018, 06:15:43 pm
I don't need to trust anyone, it's noticeably faster on the same PC, with the same websites. Maybe I've got too many of the new-style plugins in Firefox.

It looks like they're not officially branding it as Quantum but the moderator of the Waterfox blog says

Well Quantum is already a part of Waterfox. It was just a collection of improvements in various aspects of the browser made at the same time, so Mozilla just decided to use the umbrella term Quantum so people would know that all these changes were happening. It’s been going on for years, and Firefox 52+ were the finishing touches to it.

hi guys...just be aware of this web app, ext or whatever FF is calling it now...it comes with a fake FF manual update tab that dumps a nice little cryptominer into your browser...DAMIEN

https://fossbytes.com/image-previwer-firefox-extension-in-browser-crypto-miner/


Firefox add-on has been spotted that injects an in-browser miner. Detected by Bleeepingcomputer’s Lawrence Abrams, this extension is called Image Previewer. To infect the systems, the addon spreads via malicious websites that pretend to deliver a manual Firefox update.

Thanks for the warning!
You're not much better off with chrome/chromium though!
Guess you saw this from PCNetSpec sometime ago? https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php?topic=6473.0

Alaways be ware of add-ons and extensions! Don't install stuff if you don't know where it comes from and what it can do. "Nothing is secure out there!"...
But,... we all have to live with it!
Title: Re: Announcement - New Trusted User
Post by: PCNetSpec on February 02, 2018, 07:40:13 am
Yeah thanks for the warning DAMIEN .. BUT...

Next time can you please start a new topic with a descriptive title .. nobody would think to look in an announcement for a new trusted user for this ;)

My fault .. I have kinda let this topic wander :-[
