thunderbird help needed

heather albright
 

I can write a message in thunderbird using the keyboard keystrokes but, I am unable to access my messages after the update. IS there something I should do to make look like it did  before the update? Or can I downgrade to the last version before it updated? I am using my old app the windows mail app. I want my thunderbird back. Thank you Heather

Hi.  I think you know, if you had all the components of your past installation synced, it will be reinstalled.  Go to your chrome's settings and create a chrome account to sync all your chrome products, favorites, bookmarks and the like, and your next install will include all of those when you sign in to your chrome account again.  Cheers!

Re: blocking ads on google chrome

Hi.  I use Opera browser which to all intents and purposes uses the chrome browsing engine as well.  Opera, however is equipped with it's own add blocker, so much so that many sites remind me and moan about me blocking their ads and persuading me to lift them so I can, in their own words, enjoy better experience on their site.  I refuse of course, hence my continual use of Opera.  Great that little thinks like this can be a blessing as the number of ads I have to wade through is a bear minimum.  Cheers!

Re: looking for ms Office that I only have to pay once for

Monte Single
 

I purchased my copy of m s office pro 2016 from Amazon. Today I would get the 2019 version, maybe there will be a 2022 soon.
It is a 1 time purchase.
If you check out the results from a search on amazon, you can find something cheap like 30 bucks. It's legal. I even got m s to help me install it.
With these low priced editions, you do not get a dvd,, you get a product key. Then you must go to the m s store and download the version you purchased.

Hi all,


A while back I started looking for ms Office but all I found online was versions that it looked like I'd have to pay a yearly subscription for.
Are there versions of ms Office that I can get online and only have to pay once for, and if so what's the best place to look?


Thanks.

Also, before you change the setting, down arrow through all of them and remember what ssetting you are using, in case you want to return to it for some reason.

Its an encoding mismatch.  If you see these symbols in many messages you read, you are reading messages using an encoding that isn’t commonly used on the list.  I know how you change encoding for messages you read but not for messages you write.  Perhaps the setting is the same and done with the same setting change.  Someone with more technical knowledge can explain it.  Different languages use different encodings for some carachters.
 
Try switching to Western and see if that solves the problem.
 
In thunderbird, open the menus, alt, then type v to move to the view menu.
Down arrow to encoding and press enter.
Down arrow to western and press enter.  Now see if messages you read have the unwanted carachters.  List members will, I hope, advise you about whether messages you send still have the unwanted carachters.

I used to advise what you are discussing and I still would except that I found out about a simpler way. 
 
Instead of turning off JAVA script and Active X controls if you are using Internet Explorer, or JAVA script with any other browser, treat the download button as though it is a link.  it actually is a link, coded to appear as a button.
 
Don’t activate the button.  Open the context menu and use save target as or whatever your browser calls it, it may be called ssave link as.  When you find it and press enter on it in the context menu, a download dialog will come up and you won’t be exposed to any advertising.
 
If you are using JAWS, you may not bbe able to work with the link if you use the context menu key because of an alignment bug.  If you stay in the virtual pc cursor and use the right click mouse command, if you are on the button, the context menu will open for the button.  If you use the context menu key, you may work with something you aren’t on.  This isn’t necessary with NVDA.  I haven’t used JAWS for years and this bug may have been corrected but I wouldn’t count on it.  It was present for many years when I was using JAWS.

Subject: [TechTalk] Send Space & Free Downloads
 
Hi All,
 
In the past it was advised to turn off JAVA scripts in browsers other than IE, and in IE it was advised to stop Active X Controls from
running & turn off JAVA scripts when downloading from Send Space using a free account.
 
What advice is there for downloading from Send Space using a free account with chromium browsers?  I cancelled my pro Send Space account last year because it seemed to be broke more often than working.  I don't download very often , and I'm using Chrome or Brave as my default browser, so would someone please advise as to the safety with downloading using a free account?  All input is greatly appreciated.  Thanks mooy moocho.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Mike, I use Google Chrome and Brave and this is how I download free Sendspace files.


I find the button saying download file.� There's a control shift keystroke associated with this, but I don't use that.� I use the context key and find the save link as option and press enter.� This opens a normal save as dialog.


I've used this method for quite a while and haven't gotten any nasties yet.
