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.
