Boot-sticks and old browsers

I just had the unhappy, but I suppose inevitable, experience of having to go back to a live-usb boot disk to repair my install. What made it more interesting was that when I tried to access this forum, I got an ‘unsupported browser’ message and limited functionality on the forum. This was from the older version of firefox that was on that live-usb stick.

For now, I’m back up, thanks to the help I could get from this forum, and I’ve also created a new boot-stick with a current download of Manjaro. So, this should not happen again. This note is just to put it into future discussions that making this forum as backward compatible as possible with versions people might have on boot-sticks is not a bad idea. Can’t go back forever, I know, but just something to keep in mind during future changes and upgrades.

For the curious, the old boot-stick was labeled with marker as 18.0.2. So yes, it was old. I suppose that is a compliment on how stable Manjaro is — that it had been awhile since I’d needed a boot-stick. :slight_smile:
