Re: PAE Kernel on a 32bit 1GB- System

CPUs that don't support PAE also don't support an instruction called SSE2. Modern web browsers (and possibly other software) requires this to make them secure from attack. Chrome dropped support for non-SSE2 CPUs in 2014, and Firefox dropped support from version 48. That's why MX Linux, and pretty m...

Cookie request when Help files opened

Whenever MX-Viewer opens in response to a Help button for an MX Tool being clicked, there is a cookie request displayed. Accepting that request does not prevent the requester from appearing on subsequent uses, even for the same file.

Re: privacy

Regardless of operating system, your privacy concerns should mainly be directed at any web sites you visit.

There are plenty of add-ons for Firefox and others to reduce your exposure, and you should research what are the best options for you.
