  • My mac is no longer supported by firefox. Can I recover my bookmarks and import them into another browser?

    The detail is in the question

    FF update to 13 and now you can't open ? sorry about that.
    1. Download (with your safari) a copy of 3.6.28 from
    http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older
    2. '''Trash''' the current Firefox application to do a clean install.
    3. Install the version that you have downloaded (3.6.28).
    Do not select to remove your personal data, your profile data is stored elsewhere in the [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder], so you won't lose your bookmarks or other personal data.

  • What software can I use on my new Mac that no longer supports "AppleWorks"? To easily transfer my database for mailmerge.

    What software can I use on my new Mac that no longer supports "AppleWorks"? To easily transfer my database for mailmerge.

    Two thoughts:
    (1)     It is possible that your Adobe software was the result of belonging to a now-discontinued Adobe Print Service Provider program where for a certain annual membership fee, print service providers were provided with (a) both a Windows and Macintosh license to the Adobe print-oriented software products (such as InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Acrobat) and (b) special direct product support as well as the ability to put your name on Adobe's website as a member of this program. The program ended over a year ago if I remember correctly.
    (2)     You may wish to contact Adobe Customer Support (not Technical Support) and see if they can track down any and all licenses associated with your company. If you have the names of the former employees who worked with this software, it would be helpful. Likewise, if you were a member of the discontinued Adobe Print Service Provider program, you may have some options for upgrading/updating the software you have.
    Unfortunately, you cannot get any more definitive information about your situation on these forums.
    Good luck.

  • I recently uploaded 10.8, but I have a number of VALUABLE old files which I can no longer read because "power PC applications are no longer supported.  How can I retrieve them?

    I recently uploaded 10.8, but I have a number of VALUABLE old files which I can no longer read because "power PC applications are no longer supported.  How can I retrieve them"?

    Here is a post I assembled for another with a similar problem:
    Unfortunately you got caught up in the minor miracle of Rosetta.  Originally licensed by Apple when it migrated from the PowerPC CPU platform that it had used from the mid-1990's until the Intel CPU platform in 2006, Rosetta allowed Mac users to continue to use their library of PPC software transparently in emulation.
    However, Apple's license to continue to use this technology expired with new releases of OS X commencing with Lion (and now Mountain Lion).  While educational efforts have been made over the last 6 years, the fact is that Rosetta was SO successful that many users were caught unaware UNTIL they upgraded to Lion or Mountain Lion.
    Workarounds:
    1. If your Mac will support it, restore OS X Snow Leopard;
    2.  If your Mac will support it, partition your hard drive or add an external hard drive and install Snow Leopard into it and use the "dual-boot" method to choose between your PPC software or Lion/Mt. Lion;
    3. Upgrade to an Intel compatible versions of your software, or find alternatives that will open your data files;
    3.  Install Snow Leopard (with Rosetta) into Parallels:

    Full Snow Leopard installation instructions here:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1365439
    NOTE: STEP ONE of the instructions must currently be completed on a Snow Leopard or Lion Mac and the resulting modified Snow Leopard.cdr install file can then be moved over to your Mountain Lion Mac for completion of the remaining steps.
    NOTE 2:  Computer games with complex, 3D or fast motion graphics make not work well or at all in virtualization.

  • Now that Apple no longer supports AppleWorks, how can I change a lot of AppleWorks files to Pages, without doing them one at at time?

    But why if you're running 10.6 do you need to do this? AW works fine in 10.6 with Rosetta.

    When trying to open a word document, I get the error message that PowerPC applications are no longer supported.  What can I do?
    Thanks.

    IMHO the free apps are a band aid fix. If the OP uses Office on a regular basis he will need to upgrade anyway. Personally I have used neooffice and found it substandard however that was just my take. I haven't tried Google's solution.
    We both forgot to mention the OP could also use Pages and Numbers to open their Word and Excel files. If he uses Entourage then Mail and iCal would be viable substitutes.

    Hello JF.
    I don't think that extension is supported. I believe Firefox can only read .json and .html.

  • Is there a work around to the fact that MAC OS no longer supports software using PowerPC?

    I can no longer use two interactive Pearson Pelican Plus interactive CD Roms in school because I get an error message saying PowerPC is no longer supported by Mac. My OS is 10.9.5.
    Is there a work around?

    Ella:
    It is unclear from your post if your inability to use Pearson CD-ROMs occurred after you purchased a new Mac, or simply upgraded your current one to Mavericks.
    If you simply upgraded to Mavericks, your easiest solution and best operating environment would be to use Disk Utility to partition your hard drive and reinstall Snow Leopard (with the optional Rosetta) into that partition.  You could then use the "dual-boot" process (System Preferences:Startup Disk) to determine with environment is operating on your Mac: Snow Leopard when you want to run the CD-ROM or Mavericks where you need more modern capabilities.
    Note that if you must have the concurrent ability to run the CD-ROM and  Mavericks, then, the previous information posted by others in this thread is your only solution and there is no point in your taking the extra steps to partition your hard drive and install Snow Leopard.
    The previous information provided to you is largely accurate except for one point that is irrelevant to your concerns and will only generate needless irrelevant repetitious responses if I point out what it is.
    The great tragedy in today's USA society is the government's failure to properly fund education combined with the high amount and cost of student loans and their inability to be discharged in bankruptcy.
    The combination of all of these factors leads educational publisher's such as Pearson no financial incentive to upgrade many of their essential products for the education market, including rewriting their CD-ROMs to work directly on Intel Macs without the addition of Rosetta, which is not longer supplied by OS X after Snow Leopard.
    Having seen this problem posted on this forum quite regularly over the last few years, I purchased a demo CD-ROM from Pearson on Amazon and I am able to report that indeed they will run on a Mavericks (or Mt. Lion or Lion) Mac that has Snow Leopard Server ("SLS") installed into a virtualization program (in my case Parallels), as shown here:
                                  [click on image to enlarge]
    Previous posts have described the telephone process and part number to obtain SLS from Apple for the now 95% discounted price of $20!  Parallels offers a 14-day free trial download of Parallels (do not activate it until you are in possession of SLS):

  • PowerPC no longer supported -what else can i do?

    Have just purchased a sassoon font for MAC (at £67!) and error message 'powerpc no longer supported' appears when i try to install.
    What else can i do?
    Thanks

    You have Mac OS Lion listed as your operating system, however, Lion is not supoorted on Power PC. If you really are running Lion natively then there should not be a problem. Not that I think you are mistaken about your OS, but it may be an error with the font itself that wrongly thinks you are using Power PC. You should really contact customer support of the company you bought the font from.

  • LaCie Little Disk - no longer supported? I can't open my backed up files

    I plugged my LaCie Little Disk into my MacBook pro.  It comes up on my desktop but when I try to open any of the backed up files I get this message from Finder: "You can't opne the application iPhoto because power PC applications are no longer supported" OK is the oply option!
    The files were backed up in 2011 from a Ibook G4.
    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    What format is the external drive? - to use for the iphoto Library it MUST be Mac OS extended (journaled)
    I am not sure of the external drive format.
    Then look - select it in the finder and get info
    The LaCie instructions say the LaCie Setup Assistant Software must be launched, and to click on the drive icon when it mounts on my computer - But it goes directly to my backed up files, which then won't open (and not just iPhoto).
    I have no idea what you want to do here - if the drive is correctly formatted then you need no set up - if it is not then you have a problem because set up will erase it  --  what ever it is it iPhoto is not involved - if you need LaCie support you need to contact them

  • Firefox can't recover after my display driver crashes

    My display driver is garbage, it crashes multiple times a day. It always has (I got this laptop second-hand).
    I'm used to it. I've tried reinstalling drivers, editing the registry, reinstalling windows, switching browsers, etc etc etc
    It's fine, I guess I can live with it crashing throughout the day, it flicks back on in a second or two.
    HOWEVER, I can not live with it shutting down my browser EVERY TIME. Chrome and IE can recover from this, but apparently Firefox can't. Firefox just goes blank and won't respond- I lose all my pages. Chrome and IE will bounce back with the pages and tabs that were open when the display crapped out on me.
    I guess my question is, how do I prevent this from happening?
    Or can you fix firefox so that it can recover from this? I really hate using chrome. Help me out, firefox

  • My I phone calendar does not communicate with my I Mac. I called support an they said you need to buy Lion, snow leopard no longer supports this. Can this be right? It has always worked before.

    You need to move to Windows 7, because Apple is now releasing a new OS X version annually and it's playing havoc with people's hardware and software.
    Windows 7 will get support until 2020, that's 8 years of software stability, however you do need to make System Restore disks, boot disk and another on a hard drive to self restore (like TimeMachine is for OS X)
    Apple has no plans to change their currrent behavior as all they care about is selling new hardware with a shiny new OS X verison on it.
    If you wait to move, what will happen is you'll lose that full 8 years and will have to swtich to a newer Windows sooner
    Windows 7 machines are still widely avaialble, despite Windows 8 (a failure) being pushed currently.
    Running three OS X operating systems on one machine is quite a chore reserved for only seasoned computer geeks, then it's only going to last X months as the next OS X version will be released, then the next a year after that.
    Another method would be to get a virtual machine software (virtualbox is free) and install Windows 7 into that to ease your transitition if you cant' spring for a Windows 7 machine, preferablly a tower that will last a long time.
    Here is a method to run Snow Leopard in Parallels, however it's a unapproced hack and not for the comptuer newbie.

    We have no control over Apple's OS X release cycle, nor the third party developers who make their own decisions what to support.
    Our only choice as users to stop using both products and seek software/hardware stability.
