Re: blocking ads on google chrome

Troy Burnham
 

I can't remember what it was called but I installed one of the adblockers that's in the freeware list that gets distributed once a month from this list. It works okay but I just installed the chrome extension that was shared in this thread.

Hi, you probably installed this, or something like it:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm

  This is the best one, and what I use, so I highly recommend it!!

Hi Heather.  My thunderbird was updated too, but I'm not facing the issues you are facing.  Have you tried using it with NVDA?  The NVDA thunderbird combo works well at my end.  Pres Alt+Space and arrow down to Maximize to see if it is disabled.  If not, press enter on it to maximize thunderbird to see if it works.  If you are using it with Jaws, try reloading jaws, then starting the thunderbird app again.  There are many factors that may cause an app to not work as expected, so try these and let us know.  Cheers!

Re: blocking ads on google chrome

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

Jaffar Sidek
 

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.

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?

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.
