Dear Scott:

Under the subject "White Firefox window", you directed me as follows.
{Please don't respond more than once to a post.}
Yet you habitually toldd me to perform tests and report their results. 
Which I did not feel able to do all in one go.

Yet my In-box still has messages that I have deemed too hard to quickly 
act upon. These have the subjects "Flashing the Neo Freerunner", and 
"Printer driver".

In "Removing older kernels -> Ubuntu on a legacy PC", you suggested 
installing VirtualBox. Which in "Ubuntu on a legacy PC", I said that I 
had done. So I now have a 299-page manual to read. That's called "Oracle 
VM VirtualBox User Manual". Before I get to your instruction to "try 
trusty with Xubuntu"!

Above, you had told me to run the "backup" program--that I didn't have! 
Then I ran into the following quoted issue.

I have one desktop PC. To which I used to connect via USB, my mobile phone.
