How about not using phrases that

is of the subject line. I'm not saying you do or don't. I'm
simply saying that a lot of people don't. It is not to give a
subjective explanation of something with no information. nor
is it to make a request with no meaningful information such as
need help. It is to provide some information about what the
message is about. Some list members decide to read messages
based solely on subject lines. Subject lines such as need
help. a curious question, a puzzling problem probably result
in lots of messages being skipped by lots of people.

Sorry, I just didn't know how to make it fit on a subject line.

people describe a problem, will they please specify
all programs being used when the problem occurs? In
other words, in the current case, you aren't just
using Thunderbird. You are clicking on a link,
telling your browser to open a window. The problem is
very likely that you turned something on in your
browser. Since you don't specify your browser, we
don't know if we are giving the correct information to
stop the problem.

[TechTalk] Annoying problem
I don't remember what started this situation, but I
would dearly love to
put an end to it.
I am using win 7, jaws 16, Thunderbird email client. To
nothing has been recently updated.
The situation: I get a Free Books newsletter just about
every day. It
allows me to connect to Amazon to then choose and buy
the book. After I
use the link on the email, before it connects me to
Amazon, it seems
like something else must show up on the screen and is
read. It says:
History tree view, Today and closed. I want to stop
this interim item
that shows up and is read. I must have done something
to make this
actually present itself to be read, but I don't like it
and want to know
how to get it settled back into the silence.
After 'history tree view, today closed is read, the link
continues on to
Amazon where I transact as normal.
This happens with each link I click on, always on the
way to the
destination of the link. It is not limited to links to
I would dearly appreciate any advice, suggestions, etc
you could provide
to help me get back to normal.
