Seems like I need both files edited (including a reboot) to be able to remove the thumbdrive in the way I was looking for.

Only when both files are edited, I can click the two context options as wanted above.

I also can click that little triangle next to the drive's name to unmount the drive.

So, everything is working great, now.

Thank you very much!

NP, just be aware you have essentially disabled a security feature. If you are sure this is what you want/need, like for example your machine is a single user machine, then all is good. If you want the security feature working, that is a pkexec password popup then I can help you get it working as it should. Otherwise carry on

particulars in fstab

Just a thought - might be a good idea to look at 'man fstab' and look at options. there is an option 'user' which
makes it possible for users to mount and umount filesystems. It would be worth it to see if the 'users' option is
set up for the USB drive in question. Another option to look into would be 'auto', especially if 'noauto' is in the actual
line in fstab for this device.

In none of the installations I know so far (yes, all of them are single users systems), I was asked for a password, when plugging in a thumbdrive.

Sorry, I don't understand, why would I edit my fstab in any way, when this file doesn't contain any commands regarding thumbdrives?
The commands in that file only refer to some partitions of my internal SSD and HDD.
But this kind of hardware is not present in my netbook, neither is it in its fstab, it's only in my desktop machine.

If you weren't asked a password, maybe esudo got messed up, it seems to happen after some updates. I just dealt with it yesterday when installing a deb with gdebi, after clicking install it just closed. Turned out I had to "sudo apt install --reinstall esudo" then when I tried gdebi it asked for a password at the point it previously just closed. Seems this is a reoccuring issue with bodhi.
