@plodr, I didn't mention Gmail. Satrow did. I don't use the browser application, but Thunderbird. I already tried to use PM without the email client open and it didn't make difference. I will leave this test version for now, and return with comments ... when I return.  :)

I downloaded the unstable version (29) and it's rather ... strange see a red moon there!

What having this version means? Is it a version still in trying? I will notice about a future update?

So the suggestion is to wait for a fix?

Ten minutes after my previous message, every action with PM became slow again. A restart fixed the issue for now.

Is it possible a process running be responsible for this? Is there a way to find out?

I only have opened PM and Thunderbird, plus Eset and MBAM which are my security programs.

Today, things are a bit better, at least now. But it's very possible the slowness to return suddenly and stay for the whole day. I can't understand what affects it so suddenly.

I disabled Eset but no change.

My Pale Moon is extremely slow the last months. Not always, but there are times I can't even open a site. I thought it was my internet connection, but I noticed that Edge has no issue.

I tried running it with no add-ons and in safe mode, but the problem is there. I also created a new profile and used it, but no change.

Any idea?

Thunderbird updated after a really long time last night, without any warning.

I opened it and saw that the appearance was completely different, since the add-on I had got disabled.

Good thing to know that it's not completely left without any intention for updates.

The Prayer (Lyrics) Celine Dion

I pray you'll be our eyes, and watch us where we go.
And help us to be wise in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe

La luce che tu hai
I pray we'll find your light
nel cuore restera
and hold it in our hearts.
a ricordarci che
When stars go out each night,
eterna stella sei

The light you have
I pray we'll find your light
will be in the heart
and hold it in our hearts.
to remember us that
When stars go out each night,
you are eternal star
Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
quanta fede c'e
when shadows fill our day

How much faith there's
Let this be our prayer
in my prayer
when shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

Sognamo un mondo senza piu violenza
un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternita

We dream a world without violence
a world of justice and faith.
Everyone gives the hand to his neighbours
Symbol of peace, of fraternity
La forza che ci da
We ask that life be kind
e il desiderio che
and watch us from above
ognuno trovi amor
We hope each soul will find
intorno e dentro se
another soul to love

The force his gives us
We ask that life be kind
is wish that
and watch us from above
everyone finds love
We hope each soul will find
around and inside
another soul to love
Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer, just like every child

Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

E la fede che
hai acceso in noi,
sento che ci salvera

It's the faith
you light in us
I feel it will save us

Suggestions and Site Feedback / Re: Not saving log in password Edge
« on: January 17, 2020, 05:51:03 PM »
I think it is a Microsoft Edge Settings issue.

If you go to Settings, by clicking the three dots on the right upper corner at Edge, first make sure that in the Section Privacy and Security the cookies are not disabled (attachment 1). Then, select Choose what to clear and make sure the option Always clear this when I close the browser is not enabled (attachment 2). Of course, in the Section Passwords and Autofill, the option Save passwords has to be enabled. You will be asked by Edge if you want to save the password the first time you fill in your details.

Happy New Year to all from a very smoky Australia.  :'( :'( :'( :'(

The stuff about what icon should be in my task bar if only running the windows store Skype app is confusing to me.  What icon version should it be for that?

Yes, it is, but that's how things have with it now:

In Start menu, the S is blue (like it is in the Microsoft Store). But when you open the app, or when you pin it on the taskbar, it is white. So you are fine with what you have. It's the app's icon and not a remnant.

If you install the Desktop version, provided be Corrine's link, it will be white S in the Start menu (in a Skype folder), and white S again on the taskbar.

In addition to what Corrine wrote:

Actually, it does open and close the skype app screen.  It also opens panels that lead to settings and such.  So it is operating as a taskbar icon normally would. Its just the wrong icon.

You are right. Things changed from when I last used Skype. Although in the Microsoft Store the S is blue, when you open the app, it is white. So the icon on your taskbar it is the Skype app, not something else.

I downloaded Skype for Desktop, from curiosity, and it needs sign in with Microsoft account. So, what's the difference from the app?  :o

So to be clear, using system restore would bring back the old Skype version even though it is not a windows system function?

Yes. The Skype app, as well as everything else you installed after the specific restore point, will get also uninstalled. If System Restore solves the problem (and to be clear we are not sure about this yet), you will be able to use Skype as before. Nothing to worry about its updates. You will have them as before.

I only have the Microsoft store Skype app installed right now. In task manager, it shows  the app icon, but when the tree is opened,  I see both icons (screenshot attached). The icon on my taskbar is the desktop version with the white S. So maybe something is confused?

Actually, that is not the Skype, but Skybridge, which is a process that belongs to Microsoft Skype. As for the icon on your taskbar, is probably just an icon. If you click on it, it will lot lead you anywhere, because the program is not installed. You can just remove it from the taskbar.

If I'm understanding you correctly,  I could uninstall the Windows app Skype,  then reinstall the desktop skype and THEN run the free version of Revo UNInstaller?  Or would it be better to use Revo to uninstall both the  store app and the desktop?

It's as you said it in the first sentence above. Remember that you can uninstall the Skype app if you find it in the Start menu, right click on it and then uninstall. You can't uninstall Windows apps either from the Control Panel or the Revo Uninstaller.

The article you linked me to recommends IOBit Uninstaller.  Is one better than the other?

I used many times Revo Uninstaller. I didn't use the IOBit, so I can't have an opinion about the specific product. Considering that IOBit has also other products, as optimizer, cleaner etc. which are not recommended at all, I would personally go with Revo. There is also this link from Malwarebytes, which perhaps makes you go with Revo too:

If Corrine agrees, you could post the FRST logs, as instructed here. Perhaps they would be helpful to see if there are Skype remnants. I would recommend uninstalling the Skype app first. But let's wait for Corrine.  :)
