You are running Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya)
1. For the other helpers, Brian said it at #6. Theresa has actually been with us since November 2018

2. If using the Terminal, in Linux Mint, it is actually

Code:
sudo apt install chromium-browser
Theresa, what happens when you start the computer and launch Linux Mint??

Does it take you through a login screen or straight to the desktop?

That is using a browser like Firefox. From the desktop.

Did you open Firefox by choosing it from a menu or by clicking an icon from a panel at the edge of your screen?

Yes, either that or in TERMINAL as described above, but with word chromium-browser. The use of sudo will prompt you for that same password, so memorise it.

When chromium is installed, it will be on your menu, a little like this

Do you sign in? With a username and a password, or do you automatically go to the desktop.

If you sign in, use that password.

When the linux page is in front of me I clicked on the terminal icon on the bottom and typed in chromium-browser then it tells me tp type in sudo apt install chromium-browser then I get [sudo] password for theresa: the only password is the one I am using to get into Linux and my webmail - I have no other. I tried both of those but won't accept

Would it be easier if I tried to do Internet Explorer. They say online that it is easy to install - is it an ok one

o.e.m = original equipment manufacturer. The company that makes the hardware or software.

your post #31......that is normal....that size is to be expected. All browser are approx the same.

You also said in that post #31 that "" the message that came up said that it can't be installed with a message version 66.0.3359.181 ""

Try that approach again, and reproduce the "message" exactly please .

Edit to Add: I cannot look at software manager from where I am at present...I am overseas..stuck in the middle of nowhere.....I am stuck with using windows 10 (yuk) for a while. I am still curious why Firefox will not work for you....the fact that the bank tells you that firefox has a problem sounds like pure crap to me...it tells me they have no idea.......there are no problems with Firefox being reported to their 'bug' page of that nature......so it is more likely to be something really simple that we have missed. Question....have you installed any add ons in Firefox at all ?...... I can always show you how to "refresh" Firefox. When you refresh Firefox you end up seeing this.....(below)

Refresh Firefox.PNG It fixes most problems. Answer the other questions etc etc that I have asked and then we might try that. I can guide you through that step by step. It is straightforward.
