Lisa Toth   I have a Pinterest button, the last pass button and the ublock origin button in the upper right space next to the search cell in Firefox. Can’t remember what it is called. Can I put a one note button there too?

Asus2in1

Asus 2 in 1

John Weigle   Anyone have any ideas why Thunderbird no longer remembers my password for outgoing Gmail? It works fine with my AOL, CIPCUG and the online Outlook mail that Level 4, which took over the VCNET accounts, switched to. The Gmail messages to me are downloaded with no problem.
