No Web Address In Dragged File's Comments

Greetings:
In the "old days" when I dragged an image from Safari to the desktop, the image retained its original web address in comments. Since Panther I lost this ability, and even with 10.4.11 the comments or Spotlight box is blank regarding dragged image files. If the feature's there how do i turn it on??
Thanks,
James Greenidge

This is strange indeed.
I just checked whether it worked for me by dragging my avatar here to the desktop and going to Get Info. The URL was included in the info.
I have checked the options in Preferences, and the additional options in, for example Onyx, and there doesn't seem to be anything about that, that could have been accidentally activated.
For the moment I am out of ideas, but I will keep thinking!

  • Just got my Mac air and i would like to make a file to store some web addresses for my new business with rodan and fields and I can't do it. Made the file but i cant copy and paste the web addresses in the file to save them. Please help and thank you.

    Yes - well you have to make the file in a word processing Application.
    You could use TextEdit (it's free) Pages (words only), or Numbers (data base) (they are part of iWorks - and may or may not be free (included) on your machine.  You could use MS Office (it is not free) You could use any Open source word processor that plays well with Office (NeoOffice, StarOffice) they are free.
    That's how you create content and copy/paste URLS. Then you save the file to the desktop. If you are going to make more than one file... you make a folder on the desktop and save, or drag the file(s) into it.
    You attach it to your e-mail client which will compress it and e-mail it. An excellent reference is to use Help, from the menu bar, also from inside any application. From your library or book store the OS X for Dummies has a lot of useful information (you don't read it cover to cover but look up chapters about what you'd like to do)
    You can also make appointments at your local Apple store for individualized help (if a store is nearby)

  • My toolbar no longer has the forward/back options, no box for entering a web address, and no file/view/edit, etc. tabs. How do I get it back?

    The old toolbar disappeared about 3 weeks ago. No one else using this computer has the same problem.

    Firefox 3.6+ versions have a feature to allow the user to hide the Menu bar.
    Hit the '''Alt''' key to temporarily show the Menu bar, then open View > Toolbars and select Menu bar, so it has a check-mark. <br />
    The F10 can also be used on most PC's to temporarily reveal the Menu bar.

  • I use to drag and drop an web address into a link toolbar, can't seem to figure out how to do this...?

    I just upgraded to Windows 7 and with it I got the latest Firefox. There is nothing like learning 2 things at one time. On my old XP and 3.? all I have to do was drag and drop a web address into a link toolbar. Saving all my frequent visited or just sights I want quick access to, to a toolbar quick button. I have been playing with this for days and decided to try this Forum. I did find the Bookmark toolbar, but cant seem to figure out what is if for or if you can drop into it. When I right click it and Customize, it shows me add on buttons, but nothing to do with web addresses or alike...
    Bottom line; I want to be able to drag and drop a web address into a toolbar for recall latter and be able to edit the address with a right click at a latter date in necessary...
    Thanks, Mike

    You can drag and drop the favicon also known as the [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Site+Identity+Button site identity button], at the left hand edge of the location bar onto a toolbar to bookmark the site.

  • Give Windows file share a web address

    Just setup a shortcut with the following.
    file://[pcname]/[unc path]

    Just want to provide some background. We'd like to give a file share an internal web address (i.e. www.newfileshare.com) to be accessible from IE, Chrome, and Firefox.
    The share is on a Windows 2008 R2 server currently. All the workstations and servers are in a AD environment. I do not want to use a URI scheme. The web address will be only be for internal purposes only.
    Thank you guys in advance.

  • I accidentally deleted the web address input bar at the top of the screen as well as the area that says things such as 'File' 'View' 'History' etc... how do I get it back?

    I've tried deleting firefox and redownloading it, but it won't come back. All I have at the top now are bookmarks and open tabs, it's getting really annoying when I want to post or share a web address and I can't because the bar is gone.

  • Suddenly I can't drag files from explorer into audition anymore.

    Hi any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
    I was having some trouble with my m-track ASIO interface drivers so I went through some steps to try and fix this, and made some changes to audition and windows 7. I made some changes listed here http://avid.custkb.com/avid/app/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=349411
    anyway, none of it helped my issue, and to make matters worse now I cant just drag files from explorer windows into audition (which would usually load them in the menu on the left and place them into multitrack editor)
    I can still load files through the open menu but this is pretty inefficient way of doing it.
    Now I tried to reverse the changes I made but I still cant drag and drop into audition.
    does anybody know what might cause this and how to fix it?
    thanks

    Well, just finished my weekly podcast using Garageband and the "new and improved" iTunes. Here are the clunkers I've found:
    1. Original problem of not being able to drag from iTunes to GarageBand. JamButty, I'll try out your workaround... for this show I literally had to drag all of the files I needed out of iTunes into a folder... Then why use iTunes at all?! Really stupid.
    2. I noticed when I dragged the final show off of iTunes to a folder I use to upload to my S3 account, it now just has the black mp3 icon... not the image I use for the show. Granted, not a functional problem, but just stupid none the less why they would eliminate that.
    3. Show notes in the metadata. Usually I'd copy my first paragraph of show notes (what goes on the web page) into Info > Comments in the metadata. And, if was too long, it would just chop off the end of it. This time I got a "bink" sound and nothing copied in. Tried it a couple of different ways with the same results until I figured out to just put half the copy in. Again, stupid, useless, time-consuming change.
    I love Apple to death, but I hate what they do sometimes. The make a great product... then eventually screw it up with dumb changes (for example, the latest version of Final Cut)

  • Where do I enter a web address?

    I have no address bar. All I can pull up is the 9 most frequently visited sites. The only way I can enter something besides my 9 most frequently visited sites is to close Mozilla and restart, when the original Mozilla search page shows up. Then I can use the search line to find an address via Google. Very frustrating. How do I get the address bar back, i.e. place to enter a direct web address, or even a search word?

    Hello,
    Go to Menu bar(Press F10 or Alt to unhide) go to '''View''' >> '''Toolbars''' and check the option '''Navigation Toolbar'''.
    Or try go to '''View''' >> '''Toolbars''' >> '''Customize''' then look for your Navigation Toolbar if you find it just drag and drop it where you want.

  • My old Firefox used to show web addresses at the top near the toolbars, how do I bring that feature back where I can type in a website address?

    My old Firefox used to show the website being visited and one could type in a website to change to another website. The new Firefox does not have this feature. How do I change my new Firefox so that I can type in a web address. This used to be at the top of the page.

    Make sure that you do not run Firefox in Full Screen mode with all toolbars hidden.
    * Press F11 to toggle full screen mode (Firefox/File > Full Screen)
    If the menu bar is hidden then press the F10 key or hold down the Alt key, that should make the menu bar appear.
    Make sure that toolbars like the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible: "View > Toolbars"
    * If items are missing then open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout" (Linux, Windows)
    * If a missing item is in the toolbar palette then drag it back from the Customize window on the toolbar
    * If you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the toolbar palette then click the "Restore Default Set" button to restore the default toolbar set up.

  • In version 3.6 I can not open a website link from original page, I keep getting a new window that is blank and asking me to put in a web address. What has changed with the new version?

    When on a page if I click on a web link I get a new window that is blank and asks me enter a web address. This started happening with the new 3.6 version. It seems to have something to do with what I choose for the location in my privacy settings as the window changes with each setting but I still cannot get to the new site. Any ideas? I have no problem with this in IE and I have to keep opening IE when I encounter the problem on Firefox which is annoying.

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    See:
    * [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    * Use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    * Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • How do I display the web address within Adobe PDF Reader 10 & IE 9 64-bit?

    Until a week ago, I was using IE 9 32-bit version together with Adobe PDF Reader 10.    When I would try to open a PDF file from within the browser, it would and the Web Address would continue to display at the top of the window while browing the PDF document.  I could then continue using IE 9 and move on to other pages and etc...
    Now, I have swtiched to using the IE 9 64-bit version.  What happens now is that when I enter an address in the web browser and it's a direct link to a PDF file  example:   https://www.technicalindicatorindex.com/newsletter/bpdf/TII_Newsletter_1686a_10.11.11_7055 475115.pdf   ), it opens up with no problems, but I no longer see the IE 9 Web Address shown anywhere.  So in essence, that page becomes a Adobe PDF program window and I loose my IE 9 access.   I guess the PDF files are no longer displayed within the browser (althought I have it check ON). 
    Am I missing something?

    I did write there, but no replies
    I guess that with Adobe Reader 10.1.1 running with IE 9.x in x64 bit mode, you cannot open the PDF within explorer, as it does it outside it as a separate Window?
    Correct?

  • I can not delete my history and adding new bookmarks. Upgrading to later Firefox versions and/or re-installing didn't help. The address bar still shows the web addresses of old and whenever I make new bookmarks, it's always gone as if it was never made.

    I can not delete my history and adding new bookmarks.
    Upgrading to later Firefox versions and/or re-installing didn't rectify it either.
    The address bar still shows the web addresses of old and whenever I make new bookmarks, it's always gone as if it was never made.
    Also, I have noticed that every once in awhile you can not close tabs you've opened, either by pushing on the X button and/or clicking on the mouse to close it. Although closing the window and opening it again (without closing the Firefox application) seemed to rectify the problem in the short term, it's becoming quite annoying.
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == the Firefox is being used

    I think I have a solution.
    First, download the add-on SQManager. This should be included with FireFox, it is really good.
    Look for the file '''moz_hosts''' in the folder '''places.sqlite'''.
    Don't delete the file, just delete the information in the file. My file has over 3600 websites, which go back years!! I did not know they were there, but I was frustrated about not being able to get rid of them. They popped up every time I used the address bar. Clearing my history would not get rid of them.
    This is where they are stored!! I found that by deleting the pesky web site from '''moz_hosts''', it does not appear in my address bar anymore!!!
    I think that if I just delete all the websites in moz_hosts....
    Wa-la...History Gone!!!
    As long as you don't delete the file, just empty it, FireFox won't know the difference. It will just keep adding websites to it until you empty it again.
    Why running "clear recent history" doesn't do this, I don't know. You are doing manually what "clear recent history" is not doing.
    Please tell me if you see any flaw in this.
