Gmail's Settings and Themes [SOLVED]
« on: February 16, 2017, 08:17:26 pm »
Hello Peppermint Forum,

I use both Chromium and Chrome-beta browsers.  Tonight I discovered I can't access Gmail's settings* or themes.  Is anyone else here experiencing this problem too?

Any insights or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you,

perknh

* I can do a workaround and change my Gmail inbox address by replacing the word inbox with the word settings and get into settings that way, but I can't do the same thing for themes.

Example:

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox

Changed to:

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#settings 

This works.  I can get into Gmail's settings this way, but this way only.  I still can't get into my Gmail's themes however --even after going into Gmail's settings by this workaround method.  :-\

Tried on multiple browsers, including Chrome and no problem here,  Perk.    A quick Google search shows nothing on your problem.  Hmmmm  :-\

Hello, mac.  Me too.  I'm now wondering if one of my extensions is causing this problem.  I can't think of anything else this could be.  Perhaps I'm seeing a conflict between two extensions.  That's my current hunch.  I'll be back.

Thank you, mac.

No problem here perknh in either Chrome/Chromium/Firefox :-\

Are you sure it's not an addon problem .. have you tried it with all addons disabled ?

[EDIT]

Ahh I see  you're already testing this .. just ignore me :)

Got it --talk about esoteric!  Days ago I had set fingerprint protection within my ScriptSafe extension, and I had enabled "Prevent Clipboard Interference."  That's what was stopping me from accessing settings and themes within my Gmail account.  I've now whitelisted Gmail in this one specific area of my ScriptSafe extension , and all is fine now.  Finding that was finding a needle in a haystack, but that was the issue. ::)

Thank you, mac and PCNetSpec.  This topic is solved!  :)

The other day I heard the variant "like finding flea sh*t in a bag of pepper" which made me laugh :))

Good one, PCNetSpec! ;D

At the appropriate time, I going modify that one and use it.  I"ll modify it to "in a bag of ground pepper".

Years ago, I heard Larry King change the expression "Time flies" to "Time flees".*  IMO that captures the meaning behind the expression better than using the word "flies".

I guess "ground pepper" was what he meant, but over here that's what we mean by "pepper" .. un-ground pepper would be "whole peppercorn or just whole pepper".

That's one of the first things we teach the kids:  Don't eat the yellow snow!  ;)
