On the login page, there's a checkbox "login automatically each visit" or similar.

Did you forget to set that?

It saves the choice as a cookie locally in the browser, i.e. it has to be set for each browser in each system.
No, I have clicked on that square, got the check mark, then logged on dozens of times by now. Including the time before this, a few minutes ago. It never does any good.

Another slightly similar difference between Ubuntu and Fienix Arctic Fox. On Ubuntu, "Most Visited" fills up and makes a handy bookmarks susbstitute. It's always empty on Fienix.

Yes it's correct! :-)
Except I shouldn't have removed the one for Kernel 5.2. I have noticed some problems since moving to 5.3 but I'm not sure I didn't have them before.
I no longer get a Bluetooth icon in the top right panel. I know I used get it to because I mentioned in another post that my (non-working) iBus icon was between it and the speaker icon.
Also nothing in that panel to set up Wi-Fi with. Only internet related thing is "Device Details for enP4096p4s4."

I doubt either of these matters relate to the kernel. It's just that I had not noticed them until after changing. So I am going to try to get 5.2 back in there and see.

Hmm, sounds like the cookie isn't saved - maybe something in the browser settings is set to not accept/save cookies?

This almost sounds like you're running in "private mode" (or whatever it's called in that browser). Could be related.

Best regards,

Niels

I'll look into this but I'm going to move my answer to the Fienix thread since it's not related to the kernel.

By golly, Niels, that was it! I found an "Arctic Fox will: Never remember history" in Tools > Preferences > Privacy. A note below the setting said it would be like Privacy mode. I'm going to feel pretty stupid for a couple of hours. Fortunately my short term memory is on its way out. (But just maybe I'll think to look at Preferences if I have odd problems again.)

Sure enough, I get the Bluetooth icon if I run Kernel 5.2 but no icon with 5.3.

Sorry my statement was incorrect. You copied the directory 5.3.0-rc6_A-EON_X5000 to /modules but the correct directory is /lib/modules/.

This is the reason that the Bluetooth icon isn't displayed. Please copy the directory 5.3.0-rc6_A-EON_X5000 to /lib/modules/.

I didn't think it looked right; glad I asked.
/lib/modules is now stuffed with 12 kernel modules. About time I cleaned most of them out.
