Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Just a minor niggle on Slackware-14.0. When I resume from a suspend, firefox menus will not respond correctly to the mouse. I click on Bookmarks, and the menu might appear (1-2 out of 5 times) and if I move the mouse off the word 'Bookmarks,' it's gone. Alt_B opens the bookmarks, return opens a folder of bookmarks, and up/down arrows select fine. So it goes for all menus.
I don't want 'quantum behaviour' in a browser. Closing the browser and reopening solves the issue, so it's a minor irritant. I thought I'd ask in case anyone had this and sorted it.

It's percolated. Well, depending on which mirror you use.
It percolated as far as heanet.ie anyhow, and the problem remains :-((. Interestingly, it also affects the NoScript addon (The options thingy at page bottom). And the second browser window trick still works.
I am not having issue with addons. NoScript works fine for me as does Adblock. One thing that I noticed was that if you install Adblock before NoScript then things sometimes happen when detecting conflicts or untrusted content. I just flipped the installs and have not had a problem since.
I expressed myself poorly - NoScript's menu is affected by the suspend/resume menu misbehaviour.
Results are encouraging if I shift away from the browser's virtual display onto another before suspending. In any case, I can simply hit Ctrl_N for a new window which I close on resume, and there is no misbehaviour.
I do feel that this is somehow related to the new version of the Radeon driver & Mesa, which gives significant artifacts despite being faster. Chunks were always misdrawn at times, but now it's worse. The classic being that a line of text vanishes out of a window like this and is replaced by a bit of menu bar or a few red dashes/ Pg-Up & Pg-Down restores sanity. The video is old
