If it works for you, perhaps you could do the spring cleaning and then see if you still get the problems you mentioned. It might simplify trying to determine possible causes of the issues you encounter.
Sounds like a sound plan.
With respect to Python -- IIUC, TodoTXT may need one of ActiveState's Pythons installed due to the way FScript works. As an example, I have a portable Python installed and my current understanding is that TodoTXT won't work with it. Also, I vaguely recall czb mentioning something about not supporting that one any longer.
I might check that out, thanks.
Honestly though, if it's going to be "complicated", I'll just erase the todoTXT plugin. I don't use it and am not planning to use much more anytime soon.
2- some plugins just stopped working. (Like the Google Translate one : the farr window flashes briefly and I can see that the internet explorer blank page is displayed in farr's result area)I didn't see this in the listing. Is it installed and if so which version might it be? What I have at hand appears to be 2.0.
You are perfectly right. I noticed that a bunch of plugins I regularly use don't appear in the plugins list.
These all belong to the CZB_pack (containing a bunch of plugins),the "fsubscript style" plugins...
I always thought that using a secondary "interface" to manage plugins was a fairly unintuitive way of doing things (there should probably be a note in the farr plugin manager informing the user about the syntax allowing to see the list -- fssc)... But anyways.
So I also use :

There were some other ones, but I deactivated them, a while ago.
One thing that puzzles me, is why does DC updater doesn't tell me that those outdated plugins should be updated ?
