ML 9.2 acts like windows
 
Just installed the download edition of 9.2 and it went great. Added some programs, from the CD, and it went screwy. The command line was missing from the start and after I added the programs they were in my home directory along with a lot of the programs from the menu list. I used the command:
update-menus -v
and the menu list is back to normal. But, when I go to my home directory and click on show hidden files, everything is still there also. Mozilla has locked up twice. I re-installed 3 times, once as upgrade and 2 as a new install and nothing changed. Seriously thinking of going back to 9.1 or trying another distro, or I could go back to windows. I don't know if this is just the download edition or if it is the same in the retail version. I have the retail version on order

Wow... this is verbatum what I'd tell a windows person (except for 9.1, that would be 95/98/Me/NT)

Don't use that distribution. It has to be really bad to do things like that.

Go back to Mandrake 9.1, that's what I did.

Mozilla locked up on me twice and my wife 4 times. What I did was to export our bookmarks to the empty netscape directory. Deleted all of Mozilla directory's and files from our home accounts and restarted. It hasn't locked up on my wife or I since. It seams that the update to mozilla was more than a simple change.
