Apparently someone has identified the cause of the issue (i.e., if the ad at the bottom of the page is loading slowly). You can see it at https://ighome.uservoice.com/forums/184531-general/suggestions/5010581-search-box-loses-text

Vote for the issue so that it gets more attention from the igHome team.

It’s more likely you downloaded some malware while on another site. We did find some information about the Great Arcade Hits virus at http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-greatarcadehits/.

Many of the other options you seek are available for an individual feed gadget by selecting the “e” (for edit) button on each gadget. Please read the “Adding and Modifying RSS Feeds” in the above post for more information. If you have a lot of feeds, you may find that adding the Feedly gadget and joining Feedly is a much better way to read news feeds.

Just started getting pop-up windows when clicking on links to open a new tab, pop-up video ads in lower right-corner of new tab, and ad links overlaid on plain text within apps and search results. All are tied to ‘Great Arcade Hits’. Is this igHome’s ad service? Or is this some third-party malware??

Comment on Our iGoogle Alternative? We’re Going Home, igHome! by Susan Winterhttp://saveigoogle.org/going-home-ighome/#comment-247 Sun, 24 Nov 2013 16:51:57 +0000 http://saveigoogle.org/?p=612#comment-247 Maybe you can answer this question since ighome hasn’t answered my email yet. I am trying to find a replacement for MyYahoo, which I used more than my igoogle page, that I really use only as an rss reader. Each feed is in a different module, and on yahoo, it shows the date (or how long ago) for each post after letting me choose the number of posts.

I have tried to find replacements before my yahoo page permanently switches to the awful new design (which has just happened on my ipad). I have tried other tools, such as feedwind on my own website and my google sites page rss gadget, but there are always limits, for example, the sites gadget doesn’t show the dates.

I emailed ighome to see if you can show the dates, as well as select the number of feeds and customize the look of the module, but they have not answered. Your description above gives some answers, but can you share all of the customizable options for rss feeds? I am also interested in being able to show five posts, if a scroll bar if necessary, but no images, and if text doesn’t pop on a hover (like on yahoo), then I want to show a sentence for text under the post headline.

Thanks for your help.

Use the Accuweather gadget instead. If you can, you may want to try the POP mail gadget instead of the IMAP mail gadget. If you’re using the Date and Time gadget from Google you shouldn’t expect it to work anymore…it’s an iGoogle gadget. Use the other date and time gadget instead.

The RSS feeds work OK and the gMail gadget is basically functional but other gadgets that I want to use, notably WeatherBug, IMAP eMail and Date & Time are buggy. IMAP eMail has yet to function at all, WeatherBug continues to insist that I live in Germantown MD and Date/Time refuses to save any setup changes.

I have submitted reports on all of these problems but so far, no fixes. I hope they can get some traction supporting this product or they may find that the general lack of polish eats away their customer base.

The cursor will back track several time during a search entry. I’ve switched from Google to Bing under search preferences. Hopefully that will help. Thanks.
