    To speed up mouse scrolling speed in Firefox in Linux VirtualBox


    I was told by somebody here with VIP badges that I should not post here how to make Firefox run more smoothly in a Virtual Machine in Linux. It should be in a Linux forum. So I moved it there.

    Using Linux in a Windows 10 VirtualBox. There is a lot of discussion about it in this forum. That's what I'm talking about. Am I wrong?

    I thought this forum was about making things run smoothly in a Virtual machine in Windows 10. Firefox was jumpy and I posted a solution. Stop being so narrow minded.

    Quick Question for ya on Linux Mint, you know how to be able to install Linux Mint on to a USB stick, and have it actually boot IF the computer is running a GTX Nvidia 750Ti card??? Linux does not seem to support these cards.

    Try running it in a VM first and see if it has the correct drivers. I suspect you can use Rufus to put the ISO to the USB stick.

    Well Jeff, I got a slight problem with that method. I have never made or used a VM in my Windows 10 Pro. But I do like playing around with Linux on a usb stick. So I would have to learn a lot more on making and using a VM......not sure I want too just to play around with Linux Mint. Also I have read, that Linux does not support my Nvidia card, no matter how its installed, without a lot of tweaking. :)

    VM Ware Player is easy to use and I find it the best way to test Linux. There's a free version:
    free

    And if you have questions just start a thread and you'll get lots of help. I'm going to be gone most of the day but there are others that will be happy to help you out.

    It's worth a shot.. look at it this way. You'll learn a new skill and test Linux without committing to it.
