Gmail and Thunderbird: New messages because of “Important” tag

If you, like me, use Thunderbird to read your Gmail account, and your e-mail keeps indicating new e-mail has arrived, because of the Gmail “Important” tag, you can turn it off by going into the Gmail settings, by logging into Gmail, select Settings > Labels, and turn off the Show in IMAP toggle.

That should solve the problem.

Firefox 9 for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric

Until today Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric is still on Firefox 8 and Thunderbird 8. And since WordPress is complaining about my Firefox version, I decided to upgrade to the Firefox 9.

Searching the web I came across this link, which unfortunately does not install Firefox 9, but the next version Firefox 10 b1 (which is logical since Firefox 9 is the current version, so the next version is Firefox 10).

The following link solves this problem by using the latest security release:

By the way, it is a pity that the firefox-stable release channel does not contain Oneiric Ocelot support and therefore breaks.
