      Interesting. Yes, I’m not a Plus member. Same message for me on a test.
      It’s been months since I last used DM/PM and hadn’t noticed that it now is limited to Plus-ers.

      Thank you, DG. I don’t use extensions so I don’t know how they exhibit.
      Nice graphics work.

      I wonder: Is it possible that the ‘faded icons’ really are the icons on the Desktop, but seen through the semi-transparent-semi-opaque top of the FF page?
      To test this, either minimize FF; or do a ‘Restore Down’ – the middle stacked boxes just to the left of the “Red-X” in the top-right corner. These background faded icons should now appear in their full glory. And they really are Program Icons!

      Also play with the settings at: Tools > Add-ons and Themes > Themes

      For Website appearance (not this problem) also see at:
      Tools > Settings > General > [in 2nd main section down] ‘Website appearance’.

      This is from a partial work-in-progress.
      Keep each size in a separate LABELLED small container.
      – Pg = Maintenance/Service Guide page
      – # = Instruction step number
      – ? = Instruction not applicable for what is to be done

      I’m not familiar with “program icons”.
      Perhaps are these website icons, in the Bookmarks Toolbar?
      If so –
      Long way (this is on FF 100, but 104 should be same/similar) –
      > ‘Hamburger proxy’ [upper right corner]
      > More tools
      > Customize toolbar …
      > [bottom left corner] Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar
      (While you’re in this neighborhood, play with other settings?)

      Medium way
      Alt+V > Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar > Always Show
      (And I always have Menu Bar selected.)

      Short way

      I am happily still on Win 7.

      Do an Advanced Search here on AW for excellent advice by [Canadian Tech], spread throughout many of his replies.

    • Fundamental consideration –
      In order for TB to do a reply:
      a) your computer will be on the entire time you are gone*, and
      b) TB will be Open, and each email account has to be set automatically to ‘Check for new messages every [x] minutes’.
      * – IF the computer should go dark, is there someone who will boot it again?

      I haven’t tried this, but it may be possible to create a Filter to accomplish this.
      Filter Rules:
      – Match all messages
      – Perform these actions: Reply with Template
      — where the Template is your “I’m away” message.

      Alternative, guaranteed to work —
      Using your email account Webmail access via a browser, set up the “I’m away” message. Just where you get to this setting depends upon your mail service. { me@service.com }
      Remember that if you have multiple email accounts that each account has to be so set.

    • Copied from Politico, half way down the page.

      6. HUAWEI OR THE HIGHWAY: “FBI investigation determined Chinese-made Huawei equipment could disrupt US nuclear arsenal communications,” by CNN’s Katie Bo Lillis: “Among the most alarming things the FBI uncovered pertains to Chinese-made Huawei equipment atop cell towers near US military bases in the rural Midwest. … [T]he FBI determined the equipment was capable of capturing and disrupting highly restricted Defense Department communications, including those used by US Strategic Command, which oversees the country’s nuclear weapons.”

    • in reply to: HP OfficeJet 3830: Using touch screen #2464179

      Don’t know about your printer, but —
      On our wireless phone handset: rapid taps – not a continual press.
      Thus: the ‘2’ key has ABC (vertically) on it.
      To get [ B ], tap-tap (2 rapid taps).
      (Another key switches case: Upper <–> lower. Probably n/a on your printer.)

    • Just curious:
      Is this ‘false positive’ on “by” specifically, in any context;
      so that “bye”, or “bygone”, or “Byzantine” all would trigger?
      Also, is it case sensitive? So “Byzantine” would be OK?

    • in reply to: Choosing the right email program #2460673

      A somewhat cumbersome alternative:
      in Server Settings, set ‘Fetch headers only’.
      When a message then is clicked, only From, Subject, and To are displayed.

      The full path is a long string:
