Minor point perhaps, but I noticed that ESR was not displaying the icons on my bookmarks toolbar correctly - just generic icons, whereas FF displays the actual wesite icons correctly. Literally just cranked up ESR - so maybe Iam missing something.
Yep. Same here, which is why I don't use ESR. I prefer it otherwise.

Some people prefer the latest release, some the ESR. We just make it easy to have a choice in MX.

You need to visit the websites after importing bookmarks for the favicons to be displayed. Favicons aren't exported with bookmarks.
Aah - OK , I'll try that, thanks!

steveo: Yes indeed, the MX package manager is a joy to use - so well thought out. I love the fact that you can get stuff from the testing repo without having to enable it permanently in repo manager.

I have both antiX & Debian 10 using waterfox running straight alsa on my desktop & x220 and the browser sound works fine. And music just sounds that much better without pulse..

There's a thread in the forums somewhere explaining how to make pulse sound better.
Browser sound is usually rather poor compared to playing a well recorded lossless file locally anyway.
