Re: Faulty Firefox mismanages cookies

I was just noticing ancillary cookies are not killed by self destructing cookies and when I browse to a new site in the same tab, the old site's cookies remain. So I tried your cookie autodelete and now I have the site data remnant problem... Geez. Cookie AutoDelete removes cookies when you close a...

Re: Faulty Firefox mismanages cookies

In Preferences where you can manage cookies and site data, I notice there are a number of sites listed with zero cookies that still have a small amount of site data stored. Quite annoying but probably inconsequential. I use Cookie AutoDelete add-on which manages the cookies quite effectively, but th...

Re: Unable to connect to the internet using USB Wifi adapter

In the meantime, the manufacturer describes the driver as " U1 Driver For linux Kernel 2.6.18 - 4.5 " I don't know if it means it works only for kernels up to 4.5 ... But at least it can be tried to install both on 5.1.x or 4.19.x or in worst case on something older, say 4.4 from the stable repo......

I am there ;)

No mortgage, just renting.
Me too. Renting rocks! Except I don't know what to spend spare money on. I have enough "things" and can't fit more in my apartment anyway. Experiences are on the to-do list now, grand tour of Europe is planned for next year. :happy:

Re: "Progress"

You forgot the "Now git off ma lawn!'. ;) But I do agree. The overall corporatisation, globalisation, and just downright greed culture is disturbing. I was talking to a muso at work the other day who used to use a MacbookPro with Ableton in his shows but the newer models have just become so thin the...

Aah, the notorious 8192eu chip. You may get it to work by building the driver from Github as described in this thread - viewtopic.php?f=107&t=49272

Re: Mozilla has Been Nominated for the “Internet Villain” Award in the UK

Haha - I cant tell if this is sly British humor or not. But I would give them both medals. Bypassing UK filtering obligations seems like a good thing, and the president of a nation protecting national security seems like ... well... a job description !! Filtering and the loss of net neutrality are ...

Re: Mozilla Hardening And Enhancement Guide

Another useful guide. https://restoreprivacy.com/firefox-privacy/ I usually follow most of those suggestions and it's worth reading the comments for more tips (if you have a few hours to follow all the links). If I'm feeling lazy or time-limited, I'll just install uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, and ...

Re: Defining the jump from noob to Linux User

The difference, I think, is knowing where to look for help, when you have a problem, & can then fix it. :cool: Spot on. Noobs are people who post a question in a forum before doing an internet search. Users know they might find a solution in minutes by searching, whereas a forum may take hours or d...
