Enable the Google Tasks widget to show Task Lists
Google Tasks is the primary reason I use netvibes (formerly iGoogle). I have three To Do "Lists" (personal, purchases, and work).
Unfortunately, when I set up three Google Tasks and set each one to one of my Lists, and then refresh the page (or restart the browser), all three To Do widgets show only the one default List (personal - my first List).
The URL for the tasks is:
and a "canvas" version is here:
I haven't been able to find a direct link for the Lists, but iGoogle was able to somehow remember which List was selected in each widget - so it must be possible.
To Do Lists are very important. Please look into this. With a little luck, it might be easy to solve.
BTW: Google Calendar widget: There seems to be no way to turn off the row of icons (not the Tabs!): Agenda, Week, Month.
BTW2: Gmail widget: Please allow to show READ e-mails (not just UNREAD).

To prevent the google task lists from reverting to the default list on refresh, follow these steps:
1) Create a new web page widget in Netvibes with the URL "https://mail.google.com/tasks/ig?listid=" (no quotes)
2) Go to https://mail.google.com/tasks/m and select the list you want.
The URL now shows the list id. Copy the part of the URL after "listid=" and paste it at the end of the URL in the new Netvibes widget.
These steps can also be used on ighome, but ighome must be set to use https AND the URL to each list must be set to http. I know that is strange, but it is the only combination that worked for me. Setting ighome to https may break some feeds, but it is only necessary on the tab which has google task window on it.
I haven't seen any developer comments - let alone any bug fixing - in many months. I think they just gave up. Or they are collecting everyone's e-mails and passwords. I deleted my netvibes account and am now using the default Firefox homepage and have created a bookmark for the Google Tasks that opens in the Firefox Sidebar. Not ideal, but it'll do.
Thank you Peter Lairo.

Create a Google Tasks widget (for To Do Lists)
Since netvibes doesn't have a Google Tasks widget (it should!), I had to manually create a Google Tasks widget using your "Web Page" widget and inserting the URL: https://mail.google.com/tasks/ig
