well, i've got a much bigger problem! I had 3 partitions, I deleted the
one with Mint, and now my ubuntu 16.04 wont' boot. get this error: no such
partition. entering rescue mode...grub rescue>
I researched online but, man this is way over my head. This is one thing I
found but I've learned the hard way not to do commands when you don't
understand what you're doing....
I also will want to either delete or downsize the partition with ubuntu 14
on it. I think part of the problem might be that 16.04 was the last
partition i added. On the gpart menu it is on the right of the box/graph
that shows the relative size of the partition....
anyway, I hope there is a easy solution for my main computer, I'm left with
only an old laptop minus a lot of my files and music etc.
Try the following ..
grub rescue > ls
(hd0) (hd0,msdos5) (hd0,msdos3) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1) (hd1) (hd1,msdos1)
grub rescue > ls (hd0,msdos1) # try to recognize which partition is this
grub rescue > ls (hd0,msdos2) # let's assume this is the linux partition
grub rescue > set root=(hd0,msdos2)
grub rescue > set prefix=(hd0,msdos2)/boot/grub # or wherever grub is installed
grub rescue > insmod normal # if this produced an error, reset root
and prefix to something else ..
grub rescue > normal
For a permanent fix run the following after you successfully boot:
sudo grub-install /dev/sdX
where /dev/sdX is your boot drive.

Waterfox is just Firefox with few minor differences... So any issues you'd
have with Firefox they'd be present in waterfox.

how to install waterfox-55.2.2.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
firefox updated me to quantum and many of the add ons got dropped. I
researched how to downgrade to 56, but because of lack ongoing security
issues, there was a suggestion to try waterfox which I assume uses the
legacy extensions. I downloaded the tar but know how to install it....
