Where is it? Whether by happen-stance or design, there doesn't seem to be a link to the documentation anywhere in the Community Forum.

It's part of MX-14, right? Find it either on the MX website or on a live or installed session.

Tips and Tricks - Keystrokes table still shows Alt+F5 for the Screenshot program rather than the 'Print Scrn' it was changed to.

GRUB page - Repair section has a typo. Sixth bullet point says MRB, should be MBR.

Synaptic - Introduction mentions DVD, rather than CD.

In the Browser section, might it be worth mentioning the method of enabling automatic operation of Flash? Also, should there be mention of the fact that the first time Flash is encountered, the browser crashes? Or should that be in the release notes under Known Issues?

I needed to create this thread so I could get the link. I have a new set of docs that I will upload tonight once I am back. Week lock the thread until then, thanks.

I don't think still happens, does it?

I did a fresh install on the DELL (in sig) yesterday; YouTube crashed on first run in QupZilla.

To double-check, I just booted the DELL live from USB, and it didn't crash. I then re-installed, and it didn't crash!

On the other hand, I tried the box in sig live, and it crashed QupZilla the first time I ran Flash. I then installed, and it didn't crash.

This has mimicked my recent experience. Whatever is causing the failure appears to be intermittent.

Perhaps on that basis it's not worth mentioning anywhere?

We'll put it in the Tracker as an issue, meaning from upstream.

Qup crashes are already in there. Flash can be added to that as a possible contributor.
