Last week, while browsing, i ran into one issue- I was unable to load any popup on Firefox browser. Case in point- when trying the sign in for “Digg Reader”, the browser was not opening the sign in window. I tried restarting the browser, but that also didn't work.
But in the latest version, there is no such setting in “Options” menu. After digging through some forums, i found the below solution-
1. Type about:config in the browser address bar and click “I’ll be careful. I promise” button.
4. Reload the tab to see the popups.

A part of our professional life is occupied by Meetings and Conferences. Managing MoMs, tracking assigned tasks, exchanging notes and etc can be very time consuming at times. This may not only lead to messy and redundant documents, but also reduce one’s efficiency.
Google Docs provide an excellent way to efficiently create and manage meeting notes. For one, all documents will be stored on Cloud, so its easily accessible; Secondly, its allows sharing and simultaneous editing of these docs. Offline capability is also provided for Google Docs.
Once our meeting documents are created, we can use GAS to automate certain tasks. One of these tasks is to send MoM documents. To automate this task, I have created a small script that sends an email once a meeting document is freezed (Starred).
The script will do the following -
- Find the required folder where all meeting related documents are stored.
- Collect all GDocs that has last modified property as today and are starred as well.
- Email these docs as PDF attachments along with doc URL to the required team members. This is done by using “Time-Driven Triggers” in GAS.
Note : This script doesn’t code doesn’t include exception handling.

Last week I stumbled upon this app called 'Agent' for android. Its a 5 in 1 productivity app that automates certain tasks such as Battery, Sleep, Parking, Meeting and Drive. Based on the requirements, we can configure and schedule these 5 tasks. The app just went free last week.
