I changed my Fp2 to Fp3+ and so far have been very satisfied. I have a few questions though.
Does anyone know how to remove the Google Search bar from the bottom of the screen? That was possible in FP2.
I am able to remove the Google App, and now the bar is saying just “Search” instead of “Google Search”.
Optionally, I´d like to put DuckDuckGo -search to it. Is that possible?
Is there a way to change what happens when I press the home button? In Fp2 pressing and holdin the home button opened the apps and made it possible to search an app. Now pressing and holdin the home button just opens Google Search and as I don´t want Google Search and have removed the Google app from my phone, nothing happens now.
I left Nova because my firewall indicates that it is constantly seeking contact through the internet, about once in 10 minutes. The Apex launcher is even worse in that respect; about once in 3 minutes. I found the ADW 2 Launcher to be a good alternative.
I tried Nova again and disabled error and usage reporting. (Don’t remember having noticed that setting before.)
It did improve, but every time I go to the Nova settings, even without changing anything, Nova still tries to make contact.
Maybe others don’t care, and maybe it’s something harmless, but I wonder what they’re up to, and I don’t like it very much. Exit Nova.
OK I have Noroot Firewall installed. Restarted the phone and got one each for contacts and calendar then 6 for googleplaystore. I’ve disabled googleplaystore since. Nothing yet for nova or anything else, even after invoking Nova. Will leave Noroot on for an hour to see what may pop up.
