To make it worse, i can not let it do it's thing and wait it out because if ... which i found strange considering it didn't let me before. Anyway, i'm gonna let it cook during the night, but i do not expect much

Sometimes I just hit shut down forgetting I had my firefox session open, which I like to keep all tabs and windows across reboots. Solus shuts down so quickly and every time I forget to close it my self before clicking shut down, in the next boot it shows a tab ... should work to compensate for that, not the other way around! So is there any way I can have Solus properly quit at least firefox?

Posted by HC_Sam Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a tutorial for doing a clean dual boot install of Windows and Solus? Brand new install for both, working from a blank drive, wanting to boot into UEFI mode. I run a Dell XPS 15 9550, and I want to partition and dual boot off a NVME drive, if it’s relevant. Thanks!
