Re: T-Bird & Search

Gene
 

I have no idea if this will do what you want but press alt and type t for tools.
Up arrow to options and press enter.
Tab to an item that says something like, when the program runs, show the start page in the message area.  If it is checked, uncheck it with the space bar.
 
Whether the search is showing or not, it evidently makes no difference that means anything.  When the program runs, you aren’t in the message list or in the folders tree view and you have to do something to move there.  there are different ways to move to what you want.  I press f6 twice to get to the message list.  the first press gets me to the folders treeview, the second push gets me to the message list.
 
I can also shift tab once to get to the message list.  I use f6 just because that is the first way I started moving to the message list and it had become a bit of a habit before I experimented.  I also like using f6 because it is such a common way of moving from one part of the same window to another part.

Hi All,
 
I'm a new T-Bird user and I'm wondering if I can get rid of that search field when I tab in my In-box?  When I open T-Bird, and I'm on the In-box tab, then tab 1 time I get a search edit control + K, message, then if I tab 1 more time I'm in my message list.  So, how if I can, get rid of or close that search field?  I'm using the portable version 78....  Thanks much.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Chris,

Yes, the versionof m s office 2016 I purchased a couple years ago includes outlook.
Today when I looked on Amazon.ca I did not see any versions of m s office for that or a similar price.
As I wrote in my earlier message, I looked only at the first 10 to 20 results using the search term;

M s office 2019

At that kind of saving, it is worth a much more thorough search.

Also, the home/student version of office usually does not include outlook andprobably some other office components.

Now, what you find on e bay can be quite different.

I would expect that office 2022 should be out soon.

Also, micro soft is definitely nudging people toward the 360 annual subscription.

This annual subscription looks like agood deal for a family type situation, but for a single user, a one-time purchase is better.
Of course, this only applies if you care about a hundred bucks here or ther.

Re: amazon search

Gene
 

On reasonably sophisticated sites, searches should be sophisticated enough not to need qquotes in most cases.  I didn’t use quotes when I tried searching for what is specified on the site and the search worked as I thought it probably would, showing results for what I wrote without usingg quotes. 
 
What might the problem be?  I’m not sure but the first thing I would do would be to try another browser in case something, who knows what, went wrong with this one, addware, some sort of other malware that shows lots of results that aren’t wanted, possibly some thing else I don’t know about. 
 
But places like Amazon and Google are consumer products and design search to work well when used by people who know almost nothing about how to search.  This ability has been an area of concentration and improvement over a good while and is essential for such consumer products.

Re: thunder bird not accessible

Ann Parsons
 

Morning all,

Heather, this message is not helpful. All it does is bring up a bunch of questions.

Now, I will preface this here message by stating that I don't use Thunderbird. However, the questions apply whenever the general catch term "inaccessible" is used. Here are the questions.

First, what is the program doing or not doing which makes it unusable for you?

Next, What is it that you want to do which you cannot do now?

Third, what error messages or status messages are you getting? What is the computer telling you?

Finally, have you looked in the current documentation? Have the commands changed? Have the ways to access the aspects of the program changed? Have you read the "What's New?" text file?

Before we can help with the so-called inaccessibility problem, these questions need to be answered. I say so-called because the line between inaccessibility and user ignorance is very thin. This is particularly true of a program which has been a model for accessibility for years and is used by thousands of people who are blind or visually impaired. There's absolutely nothing wrong with ignorance because it can be remedied with knowledge. It is only deliberately remaining ignorant that is the problem. Any Thunderbird users online? Can you all help Heather?

I suspect that the ways to input commands or to get at menus have changed. I think once the new command set is known, all will be well. Now, I could be wrong. Software companies have, in the past, made huge bloopers which have actually made their software inaccessible, and this is a possibility, but it's a remote one. If the commands have changed, maybe Accessible World or BITS or Mystic Access may want to think about a tutorial or presentation. That would solve the problem handily.



Ann P.

Re: thunderbird help needed

I doubt you did anything.  It may be that the update itself didn’t go properly.  It usually doesn’t happen but things go wrong sometimes with all sorts of things.  I assume you saw my messages and will keep a copy of the program as a backup to guard against possible problems in future.

Whatever you do, after you solve the problem, back up the portable program.  That’s one of the important reasons to use the portable version.  If anything becomes corrupted, you don’t have to do any trouble shooting.  Just delete the program and copy the folder from the backup location to where you have the folder you are working in now.

 

As far as how to remove a portable program, it isn’t installed.  Just delete the folder and you will have deleted the program.

 

There is an installer but it doesn’t install the program.  It places it on your machine, that is, it creates the folders and places the files in them but it doesn’t actually install the program.  As I said, portable programs aren’t installed.

You should back up the existing copy of Thunderbird portable before it updates and in general, it’s a good idea to have it backed up so all your settings are maintained and you don’t have to do any setup if you decided to replace the existing copy. 

 

Do you have a backup of an older version that you can place where the current version is  now?  In other words, if you have a backup, delete the folder of the program you are using and copy the backup to the location you run the program from.

 

If you don’t have a backup, I’m not sure about how you would downgrade.  Others may be able to advise you.  I’m going to let my current version update and see if I have any problems.  Meantime do you see such things as menus in the program?  Do you see the folders treeview?  What don’t you see, the messages list?  It may be that with more information, we can solve the problem without downgrading or using an older version.

Re: exporting addressbook

Gene
 

I don’t know if this is likely, but this may be a consequence of running such an old program with an unintended version of an operating system.  Or it may have nothing to do with it.  When you start the export process, at some point, you are placed in a list of fields to check for export.  I believe they are all checked by default, but try to find out.  As you up and down arrow in the list, you may not hear anything about whether they are checked.  Press the space bar on items in the list and see if you hear selected.  If you do, they may all be unselected.  Press the space bar on all fields you want to be exported, then continue.

Yo Bro,

 

I believe what Hope is posted is what you had done, and I agree with her.  It's a great extension.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

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!!

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

Troy Burnham
 

Thanks for verifying what I found Monty. I went a bit deeper than you did thinking that the cheaper options may be at the bottom of the list of results, and maybe they are but I didn't find them.


I'll look on other sites and see what I can find, at least I know what to look for now. I'm actually only looking for ms word.

Hi Troy,

I just looked on amazon, and I did not see what used to be there. I just used the search term;

M s office 2019

Keep looking and you may find something, I looked only at part of the first page of results.

If you want m s outlook you willhave to buy the full version and not the home-student version. It does not have outlook.

Hi Monty,


I searched on amazon for Microsoft Office 2019 pro one time purchase and similar searches and the cheapest thing I found was over $100, a couple of things I saw were even almost #$400. Can you tell me what to put in the search to find anything a bit cheaper? I'll pay the higher price if I have to but I'd rather not pay that much if I don't have to.


Thanks.


Troy

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.

Re: amazon search

It may be that what you are searching for comes up later in the results.  But there is an alternative.  I don’t know if this will work as well as searching on Amazon itself perhaps with a refined search, At times, I don’t go to a site to search for something.  For example, if I want to find something on Youtube, I type the name and then youtube in a Google search.  I find it more convenient to use the same search interface for as much as I can.  Try searching for M S Word Amazon in a Google search.  You will find results.  You’ll have to decide if they are satisffactory.

Hi List,

 

When I do a search for something on amazon,  I get results  that may be similar,  but not what I am looking for.

 

For example,  this afternoon I entered;

 

“m s office 2019”

 

Without the quotes in the amazon search field.

 

I ended up with results for ms windows,   libre office, office,  and many others.

 

How can I refine my  search?

 

Thanks,

 

Monte


Re: Send Space & Free Downloads

Mainly because I haven't researched the differences between the 2 settings and I don't plan on using this email client except for experimental and learning purposes.  I will take your advice and change that setting since you have the experience with these settings.  Thanks for the tip.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Why don’t you use simple HTML?  Its safer.  Simple HTML allows formatting information used in a message but won’t let HTML code run.  While its not likely that malicious HTML code will be present in an e-mail, why take an unnecessary risk for no benefit?

Hi Lisa,
 
Okay I just installed T-Bird to play around and I think I found the settings for this.  Try the following to see if your settings are the same.
1. While in the In-box press, Alt + T, for the Tool menu, up arrow to, Options and press enter.
 
2. Tab until you get to the Advanced button and press the spacebar to open.
 
3. Now tab several times to the following, Text Encoding Horizontal Outgoing Mail: Alt+Shift+u Combo box
Unicode (UTF-8)

Text Encoding
Horizontal Incoming Mail: Alt+Shift+I Combo box
Unicode (UTF-8)

Text Encoding
checked When possible, use the default text encoding in replies Alt+Shift+h check box

The above are my settings and I don't get the extra symbols, � , when I send / receive messages, and I set T-Bird to Original HTML, or whatever the option is above simple HTML.
 
 
HTH
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Oh yes, I know about them.� I've played around with the settings in Thunderbird, but they don't seem to go away.


Right now I have messages displaying in simple HTML and they're being sent with plain text.


I don't see them until I read a post on a list. It has to be something TB is putting in there.� It's not just on lists, it's to anyone regardless of text or HTML.

 

It's very annoying and makes me look like a worse writer than I am.� LOL

 

Any thoughts?

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.

 

HTH
