I am having trouble with my bookmark bar changing order between my devices. I have them organized for convenience, but when I arrange them on one device they change on the others to a different order. how can I fix this?

I have 2 desktops and a laptops connected by Firefox sync which I set up at some time during the beta. I have several folders, dividers, and bookmarks on the toolbar which I try to keep organized based on their use (web design, hardware/tech support sites, personal, etc) but when I arrange them on one computer it screws them up on the others. I would like for it either to keep them in the same order on all machines, or at least have to arrange them on each machine separately without them affecting the other so they stay where I put them. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

This is what I'd suggest get your machines matched. Sync your machines so all data is on both. Then pick one to get all of your organizing as you want it. (or do this before you even setup sync) Then, when you do your initial sync from that organized machine, select: replace all other devices with this computers data. (you can also do that as Manage Account > reset sync.
After that, changes in order on one machine should be reflected on the other. Remember though Sync '''merges ''' the data from your machines. If you work on two machines side by side and make order changes on both without syncing either, once you do sync, Sync will have to again figure out how to merge the incongruities, which may not be what you expect.. Be careful, if order is important to you.

    thanks.  your answer was correct, clearer.  I have another question, maybe you can answer.  I just purchase my ipad2 2 days ago.  yesterday, there was a sound.  today there is no sound.  there is a sound only in movies and you tube and music.  but no sound on all apps and keyboards.  I look it up and seems like ther are few that have this problem.  I called walmart coz I bought it there and they told me that they have not heard that before but if I can't fix it, just return it and exchange it with anew one since I have 14 days to do that.  I tried rebooting it and still won't work.  Should I just restore it?

    Not a nice answer!
    Posting "Check the 'More like this'" area and not simply providing the answer is a great way to make these groups worthless.
    You're ignoring context.  On the old Apple Discussion Groups I never posted replies like that, instead giving people relatively detailed answers.  The new Apple Support Communities made things worse by introducing certain inefficiencies.  Then came Lion.  The flood of messages that came with Lion required a painful choice for any of the people who had been helping here: (1) Give quality responses to a few questions and ignore the rest.  (2) When applicable, give a brief answer such as the one that you found objectionable.  (3) Give up all the other normal activities of life and spend full time trying to answer questions here.
    People who needed help with Lion problems seemed to have trouble discovering existing message threads that described how to solve their problems.  I never posted the suggestion of "Check the 'More like this' area" without verifying that the help that the poster needed could be found there.  Even doing that, what I posted saved me time that I could use to help someone else.
    The people helping here are all volunteers.  None of them is being paid for the time they spend here.  They all have a life outside of Apple Support Communities.  It's arrogant of you to demand that people helping here spend more time than they already do.

    I am also having a similar issue. I used Adobe Lightroom and my whole display goes black. Even my laptop screen and the lights on the keyboard go black. I can still hear the fan running, so I assume it is just the display. This is my first Mac and I have had nothing but issues. I think I am going back to Windows after this.

  • Ipod duplicates albums. All the same artist, same everything. How can I fix this?

    Ipod duplicates albums. All the same artist, same everything. How can I fix this?
    All the details are the same. In my itunes library it shows as ONE whole album. When I import it to my ipod classic 160 gb it duplicates it about 4 times; it's quite irritating. It does that for 2 albums in particular and I have no idea why. Please help! Thank you.

    Hi alondres,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!
    Use the information in the following article to review the information in the iTunes database for the artist / albums you are having issues with.  Make sure the information you want is exactly the same in the artist and album fields.
    Playing and managing content in iTunes
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1399#3
    Editing Info
    Each audio or video file in iTunes has several settings and tags that can be easily modified. These options can be accessed by selecting any file in the iTunes browser windows and selecting "Get Info" from the File menu. You can add song lyrics, artwork and set special playback options. The "Info" tab lets you edit information about the file including artist and album info.
    Once you have updated the information, close the iTunes application on the computer.  Then reopen and resync to your iPod.
    Cheers,
    - Judy

  • The screen goes out of sync, how can I fix this?

    when I start the server, the screen goes out of sync, how can I fix this?. The server has no video card.

    What do you mean by 'out of sync'?
    Try running the 'kickstart' using Send UNIX Command or while logged in to that server (ssh etc):
    sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/k ickstart -restart -agent -menu -console
    You might also want to trash /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist from the server..
