Wow, I feel like a moron.
I could have sworn I tried that arrow.

Re: Can I install MX Linux from an SD Card?

It depends on what bus the card reader connects to. If it's the USB bus (rare) it will work. Otherwise, doubtful. I've only ever come across one laptop it worked on - a DELL Inspiron Mini10.

Re: Mozilla to Disable Flash in Firefox 69 [News]

I have a Windows application for creating web-sites that I paid for; I only use it to show family photos. It uses Flash to create the slide show. :frown:
