General Discussion / Re: 32 bit Petition
« on: June 25, 2019, 11:59:58 am »


I find a few things in this article particularly interesting.

I doubt any of this will affect me although I may be wrong but if it should I'll just migrate back to Debian.

I'm beginning to understand why Clem Lefebvre and the Linux Mint Devs is placing a lot of emphasis on LMDE as it's all beginning to make sense now.

OK that makes sense.

Thanks  :)

So would dropping all 32 bit everything effect all users or just certain users as I'm still somewhat confused as to exactly what would change.

Can't help you with what changed it I'm afraid.
Oh well.
That's Cool.

It's all working good.
I don't mind DuckDuckGo for my search page.

Hello PCNetSpec,

I wonder what caused it to change.

The first install I did choose the minimal install choice which you said is inactive.

I did a normal install on the second desktop without any changes.

Both times the standard default Firefox page.

Everything works good on both desktop computers.

The Peppermint Start Page should still be the default homepage when you open Firefox (or Chrome/Chromium) .. did you keep a home folder from a previous installation ?
Nope clean raw fresh install.

Oh well just was curious that's all.

it's working good so will leave it as is.

Thanks. :)

Hello forums,

Just installed Peppermint 10 have a couple of questions.

Does the Minimal Install option work as that is what I chose however seems to have installed as a full although uncertain.

What happened to the Peppermint Start Page that was used in previous Peppermint versions as I noticed the standard default Firefox page.

The install and updates went without problems and then a few bits of additional software installed using Synaptic Package Manager.

Everything seems to be working.  :)

Peppermint 10 installed on a 2007 HP Pavilion I put together from spare parts.

My Intel Pentium Dual E2220 processor don't have hyper-threading so perhaps a plus on the hyper-threading issue.  :-\

Looks like Intel screwed us again.

News and Reviews / Re: Firefox Certificate Issues - Extensions etc
« on: May 05, 2019, 12:53:48 pm »
Your extensions should work in Firefox's ESR edition.  I installed Firefox ESR on a friend's computer yesterday using the Mozilla team's PPA..  Firefox ESR is kept up to date in regards to security. ;)
I completely removed the one and only extension I ever use ublock origin and I have zero extensions and zero adds.  :) ;D

I've never been a big fan of extensions / add ons and never found any need for any however ublock origin is nice to have on my non Firefox ESR browsers.

I'll wait until Firefox gets everything working again as I'm covered for now using Firefox ESR.

I'm using Antix 17.4.1 and Firefox ESR 60.6.1 and removed ublock Origin and I have zero adds showing up.
Hi 151tom,

It's been published that the ESR version of Firefox is immune to this problem.


-- Slim
I don't know about that as my ublock origin was disabled and I'm unable to install any add ons.
I believe old versions of Firefox ESR uses a  different type of signature which may have something to do with it.

Somewhere in this link says that Firefox ESR has to get a separate fix for this.

I'll be using Antix 17.4.1 until Firefox gets this problem solved.

What a bummer Firefox let this happen.

Agreed.  :)

I should have said I don't want Linux to rule the world on the home desktop user base.
