comment Run Linux Mint from flash drive
Alternatively you can buy a 128GB SSD, USB 3.0 external drive for $60 today (MyDigitalSSD MDMS-OTG-128, roughly 1" by 4"), which won't have the limitation of traditional USB flash drives, bigger but still handy sized.

comment Run Linux Mint from flash drive
You might add to /etc/fstab tmpfs mounts of /var/run, /var/lock, /var/log to reduce wear. So much writing goes to /var/log! Might need to add an init script to recreate certain subdirs of /var/log if some services complain they expected them.

comment Change the default search engine for Firefox's address bar
Whatever you select using the dropdown menu to the left inside the search text box, such as "DuckDuckGo" becomes the default in the address bar and in about:home page. Internally it changes browser.search.defaultenginename and browser.search.selectedEngine.
