Posted by laurynas Hello, I’m having issues with WiFi under load. If I download from steam without limiting the speed or watch a Youtube video my wifi just stops working and I have to reconnect to my WiFi even though it shows up as connected. Using my phone’s tethering to access the internet works completely fine, but I don’t want to have phone attached to my laptop all the time. Any suggestions?

Anyone having the same problem with dual graphics?

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?
