Re: Kernel updates

You might want to check out how kernels are handled in MX: Users Manual section 7.6.2. Many of us have elected to upgrade to one of those hardened against recent challenges. Using the MX Package Installer, I use the 4.14 series, but 4.15 and others are also available.

Re: Thunderbird migration errors (and workarounds)

But if I indeed am the only user in the entire Land of MX who has this problem, then it's not worth anybody else's time to work on it. I can get along fine, it's just annoying...

Re: Thunderbird migration errors (and workarounds)

Neither link does anything--which is the whole problem, right? Left-click or right-click > Open in browser -- both do absolutely nothing.

What I find curious here is that these are two quite different machines, but both worked fine handling links until the most recent upgrade to TB.

Re: Formatting USB drive

It might be a good idea to add "mintstick" menu: (USB Stick Formatter) to the next MXUM, thanks.

Re: Thunderbird migration errors (and workarounds)

Will do that later today. In the meantime, I found this in a github discussion: //This is a javascript macro var protocolService = Cc["@mozilla.org/uriloader/external-protocol-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIExternalProtocolService); const ioService = Cc["@mozilla.org/network/io-service;1"].getService(...
