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?

What I would like to be able ... for a flatpak or snap package but unfortunately couldn't find anything. Would it be possible to have an eopkg created for it? Ghanks

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?

Posted by Pertos56 Taskbar set to left side, minimal, MATE Dark theme. when accessing notifications, the pop out on the right side containing notifications stays stagnant, but when clicking to the next tab marked at Applets the tool gradually crawls over the entire screen like ... liposuction. Is there a fix or patch known for this? can we put it on a diet? its creepy how it crawls across.
