colum headers in thunderbird

William Sallander <wsallander@...>
 

Greetings everybody:


I have the latest version of Thunderbird and I wish to re-arrange the column headers.

I've been all over the place and can't seem to figure out the correct procedures to accomplish this.

It seemed like it was possible in earlier versions.

Any ideas anyone?


Re: how do you perform these updates

Hi Ken

As suggested, have a look in your System tray accessed using Windows+b.  Depending on your configuration, you may or may not have all background programs displayed here as you use the arrow keys to scroll through the icons.  If you land on a button described as ‘Notification chevron button’, press the spacebar, then use up arrow to navigate the overflow notification toolbar.  You will find a button to launch your Java updates in here.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi listers ken with a question.  I repeatedly get, new notifications from both java and adobe saying updates are available click here but by the time you do anything the balloon or icon is gone.  the notification isn’t in the action senter on windows 10.  the computer had been on for over two hours before they popped up this time.  all my screen reader sees is the microsoft edge running pandora window.  these are apparently critical updates.  how do I get to them manually to allow the updates to install.  it is only on the screen for a fraction of a second.  by the time NVDA is saying click here to comtinue there is no here to click.

Hello Brian,

Many thanks for this one. I'm going to install it myself, and recommend it to other visually impaired and sighted friends alike.

Ciao,

Yes, it runs constantly as a background process, but its resource footprint is incredibly small and light. If you want to avoid PUPs, which have become so common since the scourge of endless bundling as become /de rigueur,/ Unchecky is an excellent tool for doing so and is the PUP equivalent of an antivirus scanner.

Hi.
I think we have not this function, but in the nvda spanish list we were talking about this the last week. Noelia said that this is a request for that.

Look in the system tray.  As far as adobe updates are concerned, I don't know what programs you receive these notifications for.  You can update Adobe Reader from within the program if you can't from the system tray.  Adobe Flash can be updated on the Flash web site.  If you are going to use the web site, let us know so we can discuss avoiding having extra potentially unwanted programs installed when you update.
 
My point is that you don't have to use help balloons to do most things of this sort.  The system tray or in the programs themselves will usually provide options.  For a lot of things, help balloons are not exclusive.  there is usually another way to do the same things.

Sometimes you can find them by using the action center notifications.  The way I do these is to use Ninite to get them. This is much easier and quite often, the updater in Java will fail after downloading about 70% of the file and it never gets to even start to install the update.  The Ninite installer works every time.

Hello all,

I'm trying to remove some bookmarks from Firefox.
I'm running Windows10, Firevox 50.0, NVDA latest Next snapshot.

I looked up the topic in Firefox support guide, but it talks about
"visiting the page one wants to remove; going to the address bar;
clicking on an icon whth a star; clicking on Delete".

But there's no icon with a star spoken by NVDA.

Any suggestions, please?
Thanks, ciao,

Comments in Word

kelby carlson
 

All,

I'm having a couple of issues reading comments in a word document:

First, when I arrow to a comment, it will temm me what the comment is,
but pressing alt-nvda-c doesn't read the comment to me, it just says
that it's there. Second, when I press nvda+f7 and arrow to comments,
it doesn't show any comments in the tree view even though I know there
are a number of them.

Help is much appreciated.

Well to be honest if I ever upgrade from msse, I will either take sophos for their home 10 pc cloud protection and lowish prices.
Or vipre for their expensive 50 dollar unlimited lifetime protection licence.
I am not sure what way I want to go to be honest.
Cloud is nice while online, a lot of less stress on my system.
Also if I have a false positive and exclude it, its probably going to sync with my cloud account so hmmm will it matter that much.
On the other hand, who knows.

Yes it is true that Windows Defender is very accessible, but when it
comes to updates, you need to play with the task scheduler within Windows.

As far as protection, it's just enough to keep you out of trouble on
a temperary basis, but as it stands now, I wouldn't make it the daily
driver. There has been some slight improvements so stay tuned.

seems to have a bad reputation. They need to fix this so it will
check by itself every couple of hours.

Any suggestions?
