If you are in the dictionary from reading, it will take you 4 taps to get to Home if you started in My Books.
How is it 2 taps if you've started from My Books to go to Home from the book? It's 3 taps.
  1. Tap to bring up the menu
  2. Tap to go back to My Books
  3. Tap to go Home

That's 3 taps.

You are moving the goal posts. If I'm reading, and I tap My Books, I go to my home (My Books).

How do you tap My Books from an open book without a tap to bring up the menu?

Why oh why would they use a QR code? I have no way to scan such a thing and will not use them any way--to big of a security threat.

Not that I will ever use pocket.

Haven't tried it yet, but looking at their docs, looks like it works identically to the way they set up google drive. You can use the QR code or you can put in a one time key into their website. It worked really well (without the QR code) for google drive. (Will try this shortly for pocket, just did the upgrade.)

Anyway, if you're not going to use pocket, why complain about something you haven't tried and won't use...seems kinda pointless. Like complaining you wont ever eat peas because you hate the color blue.

I just converted my pocket account to a firefox account.

Poked around on my kobo to try to convert it after upgrading...couldn't find a way....but it still works and it seems to have transfered over. I had 4 web browsers and the kobo attached to the account. Now it's just one web browser and the kobo. (Will re-add the others soon.)

edit: checked again, and my other browsers are showing up now...maybe they remotely refreshed and transferred automatically??

I installed a barcode / QR scanner/reader that never ever does anything automatically. It displays the decoded content and a menu of some applications (guessed from content) and you can copy/paste the decoded text into anything.

However there should never be only a QR code, there should be the text too.

My Hobby: replacing QR codes on the supermarket shelves


Edit:
I don't use Pocket and was removing it from the Browser tool bar even before Firefox bought it. It gives too much info to 3rd parties. I copy & paste into a text editor or word processor, clean up, perhaps combine several sites and make an epub with Calibre from an extra docx save.

The excellent free browser extension Readable does a great job of cleaning up web pages and removing ads. For a time, Evernote had licensed it as "Clearly," but it's now available with no connection to Evernote or any other company.

From the FAQ:

Is Readable secure?
Yes, it is; as secure as it can possibly be. All of the text processing that Readable does is actually done in your own browser; not one piece of text gets sent anywhere else.

Firmware 4.38.21908

I've now installed the latest firmware. Anxious to see if it fixes the battery drain when notebooks are open bug.

Iíve already noticed that the cloud syncing bug has been fixed. All my notebooks that were stuck in a state of being out of sync with the server accepted my choice of local over cloud version a few moments ago. Those notebooks were basically locked because they also would crash if you updated the local version. I havenít noticed any battery draining yet. So far, so good.

As for point No.1, itís generally convenient. Firefox has managed to muck it up. I wasnít aware that my old login needed to be updated. It wasnít clear over the summer that the Pocket login drama with Kobo was all because Firefox had purchased the company. Iíve been distracted with family matters and not paying full attention.

When you point your camera to the QR code in iOS, the domain of the URL is shown underneath the code. This is to prevent spoofing. At any rate, tapping on the URL, then, clicking on ďauthorizeĒ, produces an error at kobo.com. I had problems authorizing my Pocket app on my iPhone, too, but I was able to fix that one by manually updating the keychains. This sounds like a Firefox/Kobo issue, though, not a firmware issue.

Same problem to authorize using my computer.

I had a pocket account on an old e-mail and a firefox account on another e-mail. I had not yet migrate my pocket account to firefox auth. I did it first, without problem.

The QR code just open the URL: " https://kobo.com/pocket?code= " with the displayed code after the =.
When I open that URL, my browser is redirected to my pocket account for authorization:

I tried using firefox and chrome with the same error.
As Iím using adblocker and other privacy add-ons, I thought maybe something was intercepted in the process.
Iím not really needing pocket on my kobo, so I will see later if itís fixed.

Iím seeing all the same screens. I even deleted my pocket account (itís alright, Iíd been wanting a way to mass delete the backlog anyway), created a new account, and created a new password for pocket separate from Firefox as suggested in another thread. No luck.

Yes, there are many people that donít have any problems at all, but that doesnít mean something isnít messed up for some accounts. Weíll have to wait for them to fix things on the server side.
