"Invalid Password" under Linux Mint 20

splinx1 says:

Today while trying earlier to log onto my Flickr account while running Mint 20 (Cinnamon-64), I kept getting "Invalid Password" response.

Now I've rebooted to Mint Cinnamon 19.2 (64) and was able to log on without issue.

I dunno what it means, but it must mean something.

FYI

No problems here - except, I wrote my password wrong first time... :-) But now, I'm in - and that is on Linux Mint 20,1 Cinnamon, on a HP Elitebook 8470p.

And, on Firefox

I'm writing this post, on Linux Mint...

Thanks. It's possible my Mint 20.1 live session drive is corrupted, or the image itself is, but I'm not about to download another copy just now as Cinnamon 19.2 runs pretty well from thumb drives, and I've been using that image for some time, but Firefox eventually dies or stuffs up from too many open tabs on all of the live session media versions of Linux I've tried, forcing a hard reset, and every so often I have to burn a new image onto the usb drive.

I've been under the impression that online security is a little better running Linux from live media, but perhaps I'm mistaken.

I don't know, what's most safe: Running Linux via USB-stick, or installing it directly on the computer... But, I got a spare computer, when buying a new Windows 10-computer, and then, I wanted to try installing Linux Mint on the old one - simply, for trying it.

But, PERHAPS, the live-Mint, is only for trying Linux without installing the system, so you simply have the chance to say "Linux?? ABSOLUTELY no thanks", and then continue with Windows without having trouble, reinstalling this?

I have also tried dual-booting, but there, I say no thanks!! :-) WAY too troublesome. And, when having dual-boote. Try to run a full antivirus-scanning on Windows.... Ha-HA!! In that situation, it can be more secure, to run Linux from a USB-stick....

What happens, if you don't have too many taps opened? Does it run better?

And, remember, When running Linux from a USB-stick, the system will get fragmented pretty fast. Thia CAN also be a problem, and it's not good to defrag a USB-stick.

I assumed my problem was related to Mint 20, but now people are reporting "Invalid password" response from Windows, although without specifying which version.

Nor did anyone reference or even notice my earlier comment about this issue, although it's still marked "new."

Well, I'll keep an eye on this, but I'm not going to spend any more time troubleshooting it. Thanks for your comments.
