Does it happen if you change the window manager theme back to default in the Peppermint Control Center ?

And if you disable/enable desktop effects ?

Tried both, same problem... I do have other distros installed in the same computer and they all have almost the same software installed. This problem only appears in Peppermint. I used Peppermint 8 before, and this never happened.

I don't know why the image isn't showing on the original post. Here it goes again:



The buttons appears normally, quickly shifts (as in the picture) and in a second or two goes back to normal. If I click to alternate between "open" or "save" the problem repeats. I can't click on nothing in the dialog window while it's displayed like that.

I've created a new user, just like a fresh install. But it is also affected by the same dialog problem.

I've decided to try again the guest account and it works properly.  :-\

I've also tried to reinstall firefox with
Code: [Select]
sudo apt purge firefox
sudo apt install firefox


No luck yet...

What should I look for in my home folder?

Ok, closed Firefox entirely, renamed the directory to "firefox-backup", opened a fresh Firefox instance but the problem persists...

I'll try going back to defaults for all my theming (windows, colors, fonts, icons, mouse pointer, etc.) and completely restarting the computer. 

[EDIT]

No, still have the problem.

Sorry for the delay, I've been away from my computer...

At first, I couldn't start Firefox on safe mode:

Code: [Select]
firefox --safe-mode
Failed to execute process '/usr/sbin/firefox'. Reason:
exec: Exec format error
The file '/usr/sbin/firefox' is marked as an executable but could not be run by the operating system.

I've found that the problem was that I'm using the fish shell. Back to bash, the command started Firefox in safe mode. However, the save dialog problem remains.

GNU/Linux Discussion / Re: Gnome desktop - my frustration
« on: March 03, 2019, 06:02:02 am »
I'm a bit late for this discussion... I have experimented with lots of DEs and I believe that all offerings are great, to the point that I feel like my distro hopping have been seriously aggravated.

IMO Gnome is very good. I feel I'm very productive using it as I'm less distracted by the interface. The panel can be satisfactorily tweaked with extensions (yes, they may break from one version to another, but you can avoid that sticking to "stable" distro releases).

KDE is another favorite for different reasons. Looks and performs great while letting me easily configure everything.

Now Peppermint, that's on another level. That's the only partition I'm never replacing.

I have given a try to:
- changing themes
- changing icon themes
- changing widget theme
And I still have the issue.

In the guest session, there is no problem at all. The save dialog shows and works as expected.

Software & Applications / Firefox save dialog problem (SOLVED)
« on: March 01, 2019, 03:33:05 pm »
I've been dealing with a strange Firefox behavior for a while now. Everytime a save dialog appears, the "cancel" and "ok" are distorted and misplaced. It take some noticeable seconds before it corrects itself (on it own). I can't click on anything else in that interval. And if i switch between "open" or "save" it happens again, but the lag is even longer. In some occasions (not tied to the file size) it takes up to 20-30 seconds for the system to unfreeze. I also have other distros installed on the same computer and this problem only affects Firefox.

General Discussion / Re: Chromebook conversion
« on: February 28, 2019, 03:24:56 am »
I used to have a Chromebook. Although its limitations, it is a very fast and responsive system. If you can get your work done only from a web browser, it is a nice option.

When I had it, there was not the possibility to install some Android apps yet.

However, I would not buy it if you're planning on using another OS then Chrome OS. It's not easily replaceable. There is a way to install Linux distros on it, but AFAIK it is not very easy and there are some caveats.

To put it short, if you want something different from Chrome OS, don't buy a Chromebook.

New Users / Re: What is the simplist way to maintain Peppermint?
« on: February 24, 2019, 08:39:48 am »
Maybe you could try to set the mint update tool to actually open after a restart.

It's more intrusive than the tray icon, but it will be harder to miss.

Another option is to create an update script and set it to autorun on login.

IMO, the default install is enough for anyone to keep he system updated. The shield with the blue exclamation point and notification is very simple and straighforward.

GNU/Linux Discussion / Re: Ubuntu projected path
« on: February 23, 2019, 10:32:44 am »
this is the opinion of a single individual, so do not panic immediately is the message ;)

That's another way of putting it. After all, it's not like the little snippet about considering switching to Snaps instead of Apt is official. Until it is, it's a rumor.
I totally agree. However, for the future, there is a real possibility of snaps replacing  "apt". Fedora is experimenting with something similar to silverblue (all your software is flatpack, only system "stuff", such as kernel, is updated with something like "dnf").

Considering that Fedora has a history of setting new standards (packagekit and systemd for example), there's a chance that silverblue will become the main edition in the future. I sincerely hope not.

And, to be fair, that doesn't mean that the more traditional edition will be retired or that others will follow.
