Better Gmail 2

Thursday, December 27th, 2007 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help, Using The Internet

Better Gmail 2

Hello, everyone! If you use Gmail as your main e-mail program and you have the Better Gmail Firefox extension installed on your computer, you may have noticed that it has stopped working lately. Oh no!

Well, first of all, to refresh your memory, Better Gmail allows you to tweak and add new features to your Gmail program (you can read more about it here). The reason it hasn’t been working is because of all the changes Gmail has made. To get the updates, you need to open Firefox and go to Tools, followed by Add Ons. Click on Better Gmail and then hit the Uninstall button.

After Firefox restarts, you need to head over to this link and install Better Gmail 2. Once again, Firefox will restart and when it does, you’ll be all set to go!

In addition, there is a new feature in Better Gmail 2 I’d like to tell you about. Basically, it lets you customize keyboard shortcuts. Cool, huh?! To try it out, go to Tools and click on Better Gmail 2. Next, checkmark the last checkbox that says “Macros Mod.” Now, go ahead and refresh Gmail and then press the question mark on your keyboard (it’s usually located in the bottom row of keys, all the way to the right). You can then start to choose your very own keyboard shortcuts. It doesn’t get any better than that!

I hope you enjoy this nifty feature. Have fun!
