what if i want to delete an app; i tap and hold the app until it jiggle, but  there's no "x" to delete.

If you're talking about deleting (as opposed to closing) an app, you do it just like on previous versions; hold until jiggle, press red X. If they're jiggling but you're not seeing the X, you may need to check your Restrictions. Some apps (Apple included) can't be deleted.

    2/ i could not delete it through i-tunes;
    3/ i tried resetting the ipad through "settings/general/reset/all" then i get a restrictions password request whih i have no clue what it is (its not my unlock code)?
    Is this a bug related to IOS 7 - I just installed the latest update also with no effect.
    (I'm new to apple so any simple to understand advice is appreciated as my kids have added so many apps i can't add my music)

    It appears that you have restrictions turned on in settings that prohibit app deletion. Is your iPad a personal possession or does it below to the company you work for?

  • Why can't I delete any apps even if I hold the app and it starts to quiver? The little "x" does not show up.

    Help please

    Check Settings>General>Restrictions and see if you restricted the deleting of apps.
    Preinstalled apps cannot be deleted.

  • No matter what I do FF 3.6 always loads 8 tabs when I open it. I do not want these loaded (they were the first 8 I had opened. I have even deleted and resinstalled the app, but get the same result. PLEASE help me. Thanks

    every time I open ff 3.6 it loads the same 8 tabs I had opened the first time I used the program. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, but that has not helped. I have tried to remove history etc. But these same 8 tabs keep coming back. How can I get rid of them? Many thanks for your help.

    You may have those 8 tabs saved as home pages. Firefox can store multiple home pages, for details of how to change them see [[How to set the home page]].

  • I want to configure Firefox to only accept cookies from a specific list of websites, but my "Allow Exceptions" list is deleted when Firefox closes.

    I want to configure Firefox to only accept cookies from a specific list of websites, but my "Allow Exceptions" list is deleted when Firefox closes. (Firefox 5.0)

    @dmcritchie:
    ''How do you expect to keep cookies for certain sites, if you wipe out all of your cookies when the session ends or you clear the same history through the Tools menu''
    If you mean from session-to-session, I don't expect it to keep cookies. That's the whole point. Every time Firefox is opened, I want it to write a new cookie, and keep that cookie until it closes and no longer than that. (Perhaps I should clarify: I don't mean session in the networking sense but rather in the period of time when one starts using Firefox until Firefox closes.) The behavior I want is for it to be able to write cookies when open, but only for specific sites, and then forget about them on close.
    I should also mention that your responses are worthless to me because you don't explain anything. For instance, the quote above is ''not'' obvious from your reply of "Make sure you are not clearing cookies". You need to explain this; what is obvious in a reading for you is not obvious for everyone.
    Furthermore, how is "Site Preferences" related to "everything on the right-side"? (Not to mention that it's unclear what you mean by "right-side.")

    I was running Foxfire 3.6.9 and wanted to use FTP Program add-on and it did not appear to load but appeared but then would be installed but not run or appear under tools. So I deleted Foxfire 3.6.9 and down loaded to 3.5.9 so it could get FTP and it is doing the same could not install. Even after I registered my copy. The last time I used this program it showed up under tools and worked great. any suggestions on whats going on and how I can get around this?.by ralphd3g

    Delete the files extensions.* (extensions.rdf, extensions.cache, extensions.ini) and compatibility.ini in the Firefox [[Profiles|profile folder]] to reset the extensions registry.
    See "Corrupt extension files": http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_install_themes_or_extensions
    If you see disabled extensions that are not compatible on the next start in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" then click the "Find Updates" button to do a compatibility check.

  • What is a quick alternative to launching an enterprise DPS app if Apple Store rejects the App? We are under a major deadline and can't wait for Apple. We want to host the app elsewhere. How do we host our DPS app on our client's website?

    What is a quick alternative to launching an enterprise DPS app if Apple Store rejects the App? We are under a major deadline and can't wait for Apple to approve. We want to host the app elsewhere. How do we host our DPS app on our client's website? Thanks.

    Unless I misunderstand the question, you can't do what you're asking to do. Apple doesn't allow you to bypass their store and host public apps on a website. The exception is an enterprise app, which requires an Enterprise account with both Apple and Adobe. This type of enterprise app can be distributed only within the company. If that's what you want to do, you can learn more here:
    Digital Publishing Suite Help | Creating viewer apps for private distribution
    Distributing enterprise iOS viewer applications with Digital Publishing Suite | Adobe Developer Connection
    Another option is to add the development app to several devices and use those for your demo.

  • I had an unauthorized purchase on my old apple ID so I created a new one since the old one had been deactivated and now I cannot update any of my apps, I have read that the apps will be tied to the old account but I do not want to delete/lose their data

    I had an unauthorized purchase on my old apple ID so I created a new one since the old one had been deactivated and now I cannot update any of my apps, I have read that the apps will be tied to the old account but since the old one was deactivated I cant update them and I do not want to delete/lose their data, re download, and start all over again. Is there anyway to go around this issue?
    thanks

    Ask Apple to re-enable it. I had an unauthorized purchase last October. They disabled my account until the problem was solved. However, I asked them to reopen it, and they just asked me to provide some security information (billing address, a recent purchase you made, etc.), and then they re-enabled it.

  • I just want to know what Apple computer to get to play Civilization V down loaded from the App store.

    I just want to know what Apple computer to get to play Civilization V down loaded from the App store.
    The game Civ5 processes a turn in single core mode. It says “please wait” while it processes a turn. If the intel i7 CPU is “fourth generation” it is twice as fast for civ5 turn processing. It does not matter if you have more memory or a better graphics chip. So, I can get a smaller cheeper Apple computer as long as it is fourth generation. I tested three new iMacs, two new MacPros and two mac minis.
    See:
    http://apolyton.net/showthread.php/193302-Civ-5-Processor-performance-analyzis-a t-Gamespot
    I have looked at that darned “please wait” message for years. Now it can be 60 seconds on a new MacPro6,1 or late 2012 Mac mini and 30 seconds on a new iMac. Even the 21.5 iMac 3.1 GHz has 3.9 GHz turbo boost for single core and it is supposed to be fourth generation.
    Some of that does not seem to true for the new 21.5 inch iMac I just tested (Fusion drive). Mac Mini 54 seconds 21.5 iMac 49 seconds.

    Legality aside (I'm not a lawyer and have no opinion on the matter) in order to make a purchase of an iPhone 5 you would need to travel to a country where they are for sale and purchase it there. Be sure to get one that is officially unlocked or you would not be able to use it with your cell carrier. Be sure that your carrier supports use of the iPhone before you buy. Also note that the warranty of the iPhone is only valid in the country of purchase.
    Appe does not ship outside of the countries where it sells the phones.

  • TS1702 CNBC for Ipad crashes on opening, every time.  I have deleted and reinstalled it 3 times.  Opening and closing the app doesn't help, nor does restarting the Ipad.  What to do..??

    Subject:

    Try quitting EVERY app in the task bar, restart and then try the app again.
    Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Quit/close open apps by double tapping the home button and the task bar will appear with all of you recent/open apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner to close the apps. Restart the iPad. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    A personal observation ....
    I am of the belief that some apps will just not run on my iPad. I have two apps that I have given up on. They were free apps and neither is that big of a deal. I have tried everything that I could think of to get them to work and nothing fixed the situation.
    What I am saying is - and you may not like the answer - if you can't get the app to work, just let it go. Find another news app that works for you, or log onto CNBC via a web browser if you have to.
    That doesn't mean that you should give up now, I just mean don't drive yourself batty trying to get a non essential news app to work. That is merely my opinion based on my own experiences with apps that gave me grief!

    There are text messages that I'm having trouble deleting.  With some of my text messages, I can swipe to the left and delete ... or press and hold, get more and delete to trash can icon. But there are some where neither will work. Can't delete. Help!

    But once again, I do not want to lose my other texts, app progress, and photos. I could sync the photos but i would still lose the app progress and texts. I would only restore if it was the only option left, but the other space, as already stated, isnt the main concern. The main concern is those 'deleted' texts. If they go, then a good size chunk of the other space goes. I know you CAN delete texts for good. It worked fine before. All i want to know is why its not working for me now, and how to fix it.
    I also know that when you delete texts on your iphone, they get marked for deletion, however they stay on your device (thats why they show up when you search for them.) then when you sync your device with itunes, the texts marked for deletion should disappear. When i synced they didnt disappear. Thats what i need an explanation/solution for. Why the texts marked for deletion didnt get fully deleted after the sync.

    The best audience for applets is people off the internet. 'People off the internet' might be using a computer that has no (what was it?) 'open.html' in the root of the C: drive. In fact (shock horror) they may not even be running Windows, and would therefore probably have no 'C:' drive at all.
    If you do not intend to distribute this to people off the web, an application makes a lot more sense, but even then, you cannot rely on the document being there unless you 'put it there' (during installation, for instance).
    As the other poster intimated, applets can load documents off the local disk as long as they are trusted. Here is an example*, but note that it is not so rash as to presume any particular path or file, and instead leaves it to the user to choose the document to display.
    * The short code can be seen at SDNShare on the [Defensive Loading of Trusted Applets|http://sdnshare.sun.com/view.jsp?id=2315] post.
    On the other hand, a sandboxed applet can load any document coming from its own server via URL, or get showDocument(URL) to work. In that case, the JRE must recognize that the URL is from its own server, so the best way to form URLs for applet use is via the URL constructor
    new URL(getDocumentBase(), "path/to/open.html");That is how I form the URL in this [ sandboxed example of formatting source|http://pscode.org/fmt/sbx.html?url=/jh%2FHelpSetter.java&col=2&fnt=2&tab=2&ln=0]. Of course, in this case the applet loads the document, then parses the text to draw the formatted version, but the point is that an URL produced this way will work with showDocument(URL).
    I am pretty sure showDocument() in an applet off the internet will work with an URL pointing to a foreign (not its own) server, but it will not be able to load documents off the end user's local disks.
    I suggest a couple of things.
    - Try to express this problem in terms of what feature it is that you want to offer the end user. Your question jumps directly to a bad strategy for achieving ..who knows what? An example of a feature is "Shows the applet 'help' files on pressing F1".
    - A good way to indicate interest in a solution is to offer [Duke stars|http://wikis.sun.com/display/SunForums/Duke+Stars+Program+Overview] to match that interest.
    Edit 1:
    ..and please figure out how to use the CODE tags.
