comment Can I modify a Google Document document table from Android or on the Web?
See the blue pencil button on the bottom right? Tap on that to enter the "edit mode" and the editing tools should appear.

comment Is there a way to block the Immersive Mode prompt “Swipe down from the top to exit full screen”?
The reminder bubble should only appears the first time the app goes to immersive mode or if the user goes into panic mode. I guess this is a fine balance between security and usability. Displaying the reminder bubble every time an app enters immersive mode would be annoying.

Note that this is a security feature. Without the notification, an app can take over the screen and emulate parts of the system that you think are part of the system.

comment Is it possible to permanently disable CSS on Android browsers?
@Temuri: if you want to block ads, that's your Y, see the Adblock Plus solution suggested by Izzy and Dylan Yaga. Adblock Plus can disable just the anything ads while keeping the page layout intact.

comment How to search one word in Firefox address bar with Google, not OpenDNS?
Good thing is that this behavior is going away soon. OpenDNS Guide (which intercepts unresolved names that cause this issue) is now deprecated. OpenDNS would no longer redirect to the OpenDNS Guide search page when you type in a single word in the address bar, which means that upon receiving domain name resolution failure, Firefox will redirect you to your preferred search page.

comment Buying games for my kids, without me “attaching” a credit card
@Mike: if you do not trust Google Wallet, you can attach your PayPal Account to the Play Store. Play Store only stores your PayPal email address, so you'll have to go to PayPal.com to confirm every purchase. When using PayPal, Google never handle your credit card data, as payments are processed by PayPal. I hope these information can help you make an informed decision.

comment Buying games for my kids, without me “attaching” a credit card
@Mike: If you link your card to Google Wallet or PayPal, the full card number is never disclosed to the device nor to the merchant, and you will be asked to enter your password for every transactions, even if the Google Account is logged in to the system. You will also receive an email for every transaction you made, which includes the merchant's name, item detail, and payment amount. Your stored card can only be used if the attacker also knows your Google Account password and you have an audit log of your purchases.

@Mike: merchants and payment processors that process/store credit card data must comply with PCI-DSS. This is a set of security standards that specifies how sensitive cardholder information are processed/stored. This standard is enforced by all major credit card providers. Any merchants or payment processor found to be in non compliance receives heavy fines, lawsuits, and loses their ability to process card payments. PayPal and Google Wallet are PCI-DSS compliant payment processors.

Password changes should apply instantly, as far as I know.

comment 3GB of internal storage is lost
How do you calculate file size? Note that there are two different units that used to calculate storage size and file size: metric Gigabyte and binary Gigabyte (often rendered as Gibibyte). A 21.9 GiB for example is roughly equal to 23.5 GB.

comment Can plugging a Galaxy S6 directly into the outlet short circuit it?
In your area, how often do you have a power surge and how bad is it? A quality charger/adapter should level out most minor spikes. I have had a lot of electronics and phones and never seen one damaged by a power surge, but that may just be me being lucky. Nothing can really guarantee that it is going to be 100% safe, a sufficiently large surge will fry any surge protectors anyway.
