  • HT204053 i am trying to create an account for icloud. i have had itunes for years and am using my apple id. however it is coming back as saying this is your apple id but not your icloud id??? from what i have read this is the same thing. i cant get passed

    I am trying to create an icloud account and  have used itunes for years . Therefore have been using my apple id to sign in. Unfortunatly it keeps coming back saying this is my apple id but not my icloud id is this different?
    Ive looked at help and it states its the same i have changed my passord several times as i thought it was this. Can anyone please help.??

    I've tried both. First, I tried on my pc, where iTunes had installed iCloud when it last updated. I have iTunes installed on this computer (and on my iPad and iPhone), but that wasn't the issue.
    So I went online, thinking I needed a separate iCloud Apple ID, but it prompted me for my current Apple ID and gave me the message about my ID being "valid" but not an iCloud account," which, lol, was what it had asked me to do in order to create one. I checked, and at least one other user is having the same issue. I'll attempt to copy/paste the Support request url: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4430653?tstart=0
    Thank you for any help you can give.

  • Have had firefox for years, two days ago I got the following message and it will not work at all: Could not initialize the application's security components

    The following is the entire message: Couuld not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features. ....

  • Have used Firefox for years and upgraded to 3.6.13 from .11 but typing speed in both versions is very slow causing long delays

    Windows Task Manager shows CPU usage spiking periodically from 1-2% to 100% and the PF Usage is up too.

    I can comment that the only routine I had to block in the latest version, was plugin-container.exe.
    It seem to isolate other plugins, but its connected to the internet and makes a backdoor that my firewall didnt understand.
    the isolation must be ment to protect the browser from crashing plugins like Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime and more, but in fact I never experienced a crash in them.
    Sålunda, I made a small program that blocks plugin-container.exe from starting.
    The backdoor once started a heavy activity, 80% of my total cpu-power (wich is very much for a quadruple of potential cpu) and I noticed it exactly that way -typing got slower.
    Who wants such backdoors?
    Suddenly Microsoft crawels in to it :)

  • I have used firefox for years and just upgraded to the latest. Since then I have been receiving an error: uninstal set. Firefox will not work until this is resolved.

    what do I have to do to remedy this. I have Windows xp.

    hello adeseilie, this seems to be caused by this Speedbit Video Accelerator software that you've recently installed (a quick search on google brings up quite a few reports with similar issues). please remove the software in the windows control panel/programs section...

  • When I click on the Firefox icon, my homepage opens to about 95% and then it stops reponding. If I click on anything, I get the message that it is "not responding:. I have used Firefox for years with no problems. What can I do?

    I have used Firefox for years and it has been great until a few days ago. Now when I try to open it, the homepage from a few days ago opens, but the green bar on the lower right fills in about 95%. On the lower left it says "transferring data from l1.yimg.com but it freezes there. If I click on anything, it says (not responding) on the upper left. I have uninstalled Firefox twice and redownloaded it and the exact same thing happens. Please help me. Thank you, Dave Schumer

  • I have used Firefox for years on my Mac laptop for years, I tried to update to version 4 and now I have no Firefox and every time I download the the Firefox the emblem has a awhite circle with a cross through it, so I can't drag it to applications.

    The support page is ridiculous, it assumes you already have Firefox and that the install went fine. I am having trouble with an update to Version 4. I have an ibook G4 running OS X. I have used Firefox for years. When I downloaded the update, the Firefox logo thing that you are supposed to drag to the Applications folder has a white circle with a line through it. I have rebooted many times and have updated all other software.

    Hello,
    I wouldn't trust any Firefox "update" from a non-Mozilla website. Sometimes, unofficial builds contain adware or malware. If you want to use Firefox for AOL do so at your own risk.

  • How can I make sure under Windows 8 in Explorer to get a real pdf document content file miniature and not the Adobe logo miniature?

    This is not a typical Windows 8 problem, I had the same problem with all my previous Acrobat versions on all previous Windows versions.
    How can I make sure that when consulting pdf files via Windows explorer the pdf file is represented as a genuine miniature of the document content itself and noit just a document icon with Adobe logo?

    Hi Josialaers,
    Turn the 'Preview Pane' ON and you should be able to see the content of the pdf when clicked.
    When 'Show preview handlers in preview pane ON' is checked in 'Folder Options' of Windows Explorer.

  • I have had itunes for years on my computer now it says it cant open itunes cause files are missing so i went to repair same thing so i went to download itunes and it want me to pay for it, is it no longer free

    i have had itunes for years when i try to open it, it says i have missing files so i repaired it, then it said the same thing. so i went to download it again to fix the problem and it wants me to pay for a membership. is itunes no longer free?

    iTunes is free... there is no membership fee.
    Try providing some specifics about what is going on and others might be able to provide a resolution.

  • I purchased three albums last week and only two of them were charged.   How can I make sure that the third album gets charged in a timely fashion?

    I purchased three albums last week and only two of them were charged.   How can I make sure that the third album gets charged in a timely fashion?

    Well, thanks for feeling with me, patkosanke ... AND for your wise advice.
    I did followed your advice immediately and erased all the service number as well as S/Ns.
    Can you, however, give me any "direct number" through which I can get hold of someone and request for what you're suggesting?
    I believe I had talked with the person by the name of "Charlie" (I think... I hope I'm correct...) when I was having the same problem with the last device. He was very kind and helpful, though I ended up getting the device that brought the same problem.
    Charlie told me that if I had any more problems I should call him. But I forgot to take down his direct number.
    Or maybe I should call the main office and ask for him. But my memory is questionable as to his name, and besides I don't even know his last name either. There could be more than one "Charlies" in Palm.
    So, if you could somehow email me some direct number (other than the one that keeps on hooking me up with those people in the overseas who are answering the phone only to sympathize with & apologize to me but can only issue a false hope with the SRO#. More than once I was given the promise that the supervisor would call me back within an hour or two but I ended up calling back after I had been left hanging in the air all night long.) where I can talk to someone like I did with Charlie last time who can truly carry out the promise, I would truly appreciate it, patkosanke. ^^
    Thanks

  • I've used Firefox for years, and now can's open it--why?

    I have used Firefox for years. Now suddenly I am being blocked from getting onto it. I downloaded the new Firefox 4, but still am blocked! It's as if I'm not authorized to get onto Firefox.

    Many users have struggled with this. Could I point you to this thread for several different approaches: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/935062 How do I get rid of 'start.search.us.com' always making itself my 'Home Page' on Firefox? And no, the obvious actions will not work.]

  • I've used Firefox for years and happily. I attached a logitech camera and dowloaded Skype a few weeks ago when I also loaded iTunes for my iPad. Now the site goes out almost everyday. Can you hel pme?

    I've used Firefox for years and happily. I attached a Logitech camera and downloaded Skype a few weeks ago when I also loaded iTunes for my iPad. Now the site goes out almost everyday. Can you help me?
    I can't undertsand what is going on since the closing has never occurred before.
    I have not written down the incident #s.

    The offer from EE was presumably to fix the phone , which they are entitled to do, you turned it down.
    You can either go back to them and take up their offer to repair or you can try the Nokia warranty which will involve you contacting Nokia direct either by taking it to an authorised/approved Nokia care centre or submitting an online claim under the warranty to Nokia and following whatever instructions they issue for sending the phone to them.
    You have not so far contacted Nokia as you have dealt only with EE.
    I'm surprised the EE assistant told you the phone was being sent to Nokia rather than their inhouse technicians although I think that was simply a mistake on the assistant's part.
    How did you get a PAYG phone from EE? I thought EE were offering contracts only.
    So far as time scales EE don't post phones backwards and forwards on an individual basis. The shops use courier services and the frequency of deliveries and collections will depend on the number of shops in a town and the level of goods going back and forth.

  • I want to delete my icloud-account from my iphone 5 and then register again, because I want to change my email-address/account name. What would be the steps to follow? How do I make sure I do not lose any information stored on/in my iphone 5?

    I want to delete my icloud-account from my iphone 5 and then register again, because I want to change my email-address/account name. What would be the steps to follow? How do I make sure I do not lose any information stored on/in my iphone 5?

    You would have to delete the existing iCloud account and create a wholly new one - you cannot change the @icloud.com email address of the one you already have.  To make a new one, you will also need an new AppleID as any AppleID can only have one iCloud account associated with it.
    Deleting the account will not delete anything off your device (if prompted for things like contacts, choose to keep them).  You will have to sync everything anew with the new account as you cannot move your sync'd content, your old backups or anything else from one iCloud account to another.  You will have to set up sync again and let it sync to the new account, and then make new backups to the new account as well.

  • I did a system retsore to 2 weeks ago. I have had firefox for 2 years on this computer. Now firefox will nolonger open. I know i can download it again - but will have lost all my bookmarks & is there a way to get it all back?

    I did a system retsore to restore to a date 2 weeks ago. I have had firefox for 2 years on this computer. Since I did the restore firefox will nolonger open. I know i can download it again - but will have lost all my bookmarks etc. is there a way to get it all back?

    Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) is an old version of Linux from 2009. You're gonna need to upgrade to a newer operating system to use a more recent version of Firefox.
    My advice is to consult with the Ubuntu support forums to find out if your PC can support the latest version of Ubuntu, or if you should switch to a different "flavor" of Linux.
