How do I keep my background from changing every time I log out an than back into my sign in?

My account is the head account for our iMac. I just added a sign-on for my brother an ever since adding him it never fails. Every time I log out and than back into my account my background goes to that ugly space swirly background as opposed to the pic of my daughter. I've never had this probably prior to adding that new account. And prior to this my husband has his own sign in and we also have a guest account. So, I don't know why this would be changing my background every time! Really frustrating! Thanks for your help!

Linc, I have seven user accounts on my machine and they all experience the same issue. What I have noticed is that if an account is the only one logged in the selected picture is retained. If any other account is logged in the next user to login sees the default desktop picture. Automatic login is not enabled. This leads me to believe the bug is not limited to automatic logins. It will be intersting to see what happens when 10.9.1 hits the street.
There also seem to be several other threads reporting this behavior.

    You should disable FaceTime on your iPad: Settings > FaceTime > swipe FaceTime to OFF or sign out of FaceTime with your Apple ID.

  • How can I stop my nano from syncing every time I do something?  Sometimes it takes overnight to complete the sync.

    How can I stop my nano from syncing every time I do something?  Sometimes it takes overnight to complete the sync.

    Check your sync settings on the Music and other tabs. Personally I untick the box that says "Open iTunes when this iPod is connected" and under Edit > Preferences > Devices I tick the box that says "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically". This means that I get to choose and, if necessary, edit the content selections and then start the sync only when I'm ready.

  • I have to tell Firefox that I am logging in from "home" every time I log into Facebook. Firefox will not let me unclick ""Send me an email" under Login Notifications in Facebook "My Account" settings. Why? (to both questions)

    I have to tell Firefox that I am logging in from "home" every time I log into Facebook. Firefox will not let me unclick ""Send me an email" under Login Notifications in Facebook "My Account" settings. Why? (to both questions)

    It started last week - I normally use Chrome to play my games in Facebook - but I started getting "Sorry, this feature isn't available
    right now"..... When I used IE..... no problem - a friend said to install Foxfire, which I did, but I made the mistake of having my bookmarks and whatever transferred from Google as it is the browser I used most often and it has all my bookmarks, but
    now it does the same thing when I try to log into Facebook. - I have no problem with any other website.  I deleted both Google and Foxfire and tried to start over - I cleared History and checked all the boxes hoping that this would help - but it did not.
     I can't understand why I can get in with IE, but not Google or Foxfire.  Do you have any suggestions.......
    On Friday, it started working again - and everything was fine.  But on Sunday evening I ran the History Clean in Google and when
    I went to log back in, I couldn't and got the same "Sorry" message and has stayed this way since. 
    I ran a Norton scan of the entire computer, a Hitman scan, a CCleaner scan, ...  all to no avail. Problem still exists.
    I tried to run a restore program prior to the problem, but I am getting error messages like mad.
    there has been two Windows Updates in this time frame and I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not - but my Restore program does not work.
    NYCsDancer -- if its working via Internet Explorer, we can't help you much. Most of the time it has to do with Cookies, or your Java Version. I'd reach out to Google's forums for assistance with Chrome

    or Firefox support for assistance with Firefox

  • How can I stop my iPhone from changing appointment times when I move between time zone?

    How can I correct the automatic date/time updates for daylight savings on my iPhone.  It updates these changes on the wrong dates and sends my calendar into chaos.

  • How can I stop Game Center from opening every time I finish a game?

    I despise Game Center and don't want to use it.  Every time I finish a game of Real Solitaire, Game Center opens and bothers me about not logging in.  This is on an iPad 4/128gb.  I never had this problem until I got the new iPad.  Is there any help, or am I simply going to have to tolerate this unwelcome, unwanted intrusion?

    You can also use the settings in Image Capture to set which devices open/not open specific Applications.
    Open Image Capture from the Application folder and connect the camera or iphone. Once it is detected, you will be presented with an application opening list at the bottom left corner where you can select what happens when that device is connected including iPhoto, iTunes or none. Each device can be configured differently.
    You may also have to go into the FinePix settings and see if there is a setting in that Application to turn off it automatically loading every time the camera is connected.
    Hope this helps

    Desktop Manager loads every time I turn on my PC.  How do I make that stop?  I only want Desktop Manager to load when I plug in my BB to do a backup/restore, etc.  I use Windows 7.

    Open the Desktop Software, select the Tools menu and go to General tab and make sure the "Start BlackBerry Desktop Software when a device is connected" options is unchecked.

  • Adobe Flash can be installed, but must be install EVERY time I log out and log back in. Why doesn't it stay? How can I fix this? (I have Firefox 6.0.2 and Flash 10.3)

    I have searched through the FAQs and find stuff on "crashing". I have not had any trouble with flash crashing, but I can't keep it installed.
    If I install flash, then it stays as long as I am logged in, even if I close firefox. Once I log out and log back in, I lose Flash and have to re-install it.

    I was having the same issue with installing Flash player 10.3.183.10 in both Firefox 6.0.2 and Explorer 9 -- the Task Manager would show the installer running as a process, but it would never actually install anything. It would just sit there until I killed it or rebooted.
    It seems that there are multiple versions of the separate installers needed. The installer that worked for me in Firefox was
    install_flash_player_10.exe -- a 3,017KB file
    and for Explorer, it was:
    install_flash_player_10_active_x.exe -- a 3,054KB file.
    Neither of those files was sent by the main updater page, nor did that page offer the 239KB uninstall_flash_player.exe, which is needed to uninstall the previous Flash version before one can even begin to try to update it. I had to pound through the messages in the forums to find links to those "full" installers.
    It is working now in both browsers, but jeepers creepers, it shouldn't take all day to find the installers for something that gets updated as often as Flash does.

  • How do you keep strokes, etc, from changing when copying & pasting?

    I am sure there is a simple solution to this problem, but I cannot figure it out and could use some help.  I have a graphic in one InDesign document (ID CS4 - using Windows XP Pro) and when I try to copy and paste it into another ID doc, it completely changes the strokes and fills.  It usually does the opposite of what is in the graphic (this happens with every graphic I try this with).  So if I have a circle that is stroke only, when I copy and paste it, it comes in with no stroke and a fill.  I have to use these graphics between documents frequently and some of them are complicated, making it difficult to spend the time correcting this problem.  When I tried adding the graphic to a library, it did the same thing.  It also changed it when I moved one page to another document.  Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening and how to make it stop? 
    Thanks,
    GS

    Thanks for the reply.  While it wasn't the preferences, I did find a link on the link you included in your answer that led me to the solution.
    The problem was conflicting object styles.  The solution was to load the object style from the doc that included the graphic into the doc that I wanted to place the graphic in.  Then when I copy & paste, the graphic comes in perfectly.  The only problem is if there are other graphics in that doc, but now that I know there is an issue with object styles, I can pay attention to it as I design.
    I can always count on the forum for great answers!

  • The icons on my Google toolbar keep changing position and the stock indicators (7 of them) all lose their original references and point to Nasdaq. How do I keep my settings from changing like this?

    I recently added the Google toolbar to Firefox and set it up the way I had it using IE with my favorite web sites followed by 7 stock indicators each pointing to a different company. I have this on two separate computers and in both cases the order of the icons changed and the stock indicators all changed to point to Nasdaq. I corrected this on my system at home but do not know at this time whether it has happened again.
    == This happened ==
    Not sure how often
    == Over this past weekend.

    Firefox 8 comes out Nov 8, look for it on the 9th unless you like to try all day to see if Help>About shows an update. Actually if your anxious try mozilla.com on the 8th.

  • How do I stop tracking cookies from respawning every time I open a Firefox window?

    I'm in Firefox 21. I tried to delete my cookies, but when I close and reopen the "Show Cookies" window, all cookies have respawned, including many third party advertising cookies from sites I have never visited, sites such as 2o7.net, interclick.com, adlegend.com, and about a hundred others. This is in spite of the fact that I have "Accept third-party cookies" unclicked. How can I delete these advertising tracking cookies and ensure that they never come back?

    Additional Detail: If I close all tabs and windows of Firefox, then the cookies do not respawn; the cookies window then remains empty. However, once I open a window and navigate to any page, they all come back.
