Installing Software / Re: Downloading an older LL ISO
« Last post by stevef on Today at 10:16:45 AM »
The dates on the ISO files tie in with the actual release dates.
This would imply that the ISO files don't have any of the patches that accumulate over the supported life of the release.

This is reflected in the installation process which offers the option to download updates during the install.

Installing Software / Downloading an older LL ISO
« Last post by JanetBiggar on Today at 06:02:22 AM »
May I assume that if I download an older ISO that is no longer supported that the version available has no further updates? In other words has all the updates in it prior to losing support?

Installing Software / Bootable USB for multiple ISOs
« Last post by JanetBiggar on Today at 06:00:01 AM »
Someone posted a desire to have a USB with partitions so that they could test various distros  using the one USB. Since it was about 6 months ago it was suggested I post my reply as a new topic.

I recently wished to do the same and I found Ventoy which works on Windows, Mac and Linux. Thereís a great YouTube video that describes what to do (I can find it if someone is interested as it seems some people struggle with making a Linux bootable USB).

https://www.ventoy.net/en/index.html

I just successfully put two LL ISOs on my stick and may add more, itís great. The only thing Iíd suggest is that once you make the Ventoy USB, eject it then put it back in to then drag the ISOs over into it.

Other / Re: Yet Another Slow Laptop...
« Last post by alloydog on December 07, 2023, 11:25:29 AM »
Weeeell, things took a surprising turn. The Lenovo 330 ideapad was a failure.  It would run OK for about 24-hours after a clean install, then the next day, it would fail to boot.  (See LL 6.6 runs OK after clean install, but crashes after about 24-hours.

But when it did run, it was just as bad as the Dell!  It now has Windows 10 back on it and is serving as a controller for a bunch of printers.

I resurrected the Dell and it was getting reeeeal slow. Then programmes, such as Chromium and OpenOffice were not opening.  Aisleriot and Mines were OK, but I can't surf the net or write notes with them.

I went to move some files from a USB-stick to the laptop, not even big ones, less than a Meg.  Could do it due to lack of space. That raised an eyebrow.  I checked: sure enough, the file manager was showing 234,6 GB of 234,6 GB was used!

I had installed a few games and other programmes that I hardly or even never used, so I tried to use Synaptic, then apt-get to remove them.  I first tried WINE, but it would happen, as there was not enough space.  I removed some others first, which freed up space, then moved onto getting rid of WINE.

Also I ditched a few Gigs worth of personal files I have backed up elsewhere.  In the end, I cleared out just over 60 GB of junk.

Now the old Dell runs uite nicely - OK, it's not a lean, mean, gaming machine, but it is no longer frustratingly slow.

Problem solved  ;D :045:

Do you have a backup of your home folder made before the key date perhaps using Backups aka deja-dup ?
If so, it should be possible to find the about:config from the back up set.

Thank you Steve. I can't say for certain when the problem began, but I think I first noticed it on 11/20. That actually could line up with the 11/14 update, since I was out of town for that week. It's possible that I came home on the 20th, updated everything, and broke it then.

Any way to check?

Firefox updates since August 2023 are listed below.  If you suspect a Firefox update caused it can you tie the start of your symptoms to one of these dates ?
