Oh F*** !!
On my display, There is no Gear
WHat there is: A small square box, in it are what look like icons of 3
paint bruches, middle one inverted,
and a drop-down arrow to the right of the small square box.
And I kept looking for a GEAR and a Search Box.
There is NO search box on my display :(
But the drop down arrowhead DOES show the install from file.
yes, iirc, in some of my previous versions of TB = Thunderbird, there
were paint brushes. never could understand what was significant.
main thing is that you did find the drop down arrow head.
something to be aware of, mozilla devs are on a witch hunt and intend to
code later versions to no accept any add-ons that do not come from their
site and stamp of approval.
i do imagine that there will be a 'wild cater' who will come up with an
add-on that circumvent that, so i do not see the lockout to be any big
Thanx a lot.
most welcome. glad to see you have you add-on installed.
