OSX 10.6 .8 -- Firefox automatically starts when I boot up (MacBook Pro Intel). It is not in the Startup Items in System Preferences, and automatic startup is not checked in Firefox Options. Don't know where else to look.

How do I keep Firefox automatically starts when I boot up (OSX 10.6 .8 -- MacBook Pro Intel). It is not in the Startup Items in System Preferences, and automatic startup is not checked in Firefox Options.

Hi fullrun-
Once Firefox is open, you should be able to open the Right click context menu on the icon. From there you select 'Options' and then de-select 'Open at Login'. Hope that helps.

  • Ever since downloading and opening Firefox 4 beta, when I try to launch 3.6.8, I get an error message saying that Firefox is already running; it is not. I have removed 4.0 beta from the computer, but don't know where else to look for any bits and pieces.

    I need to restart the computer in order to launch FF 3.6.8. Also, in Dreamweaver CS5, I have defined FF 3.6.8 as my default browser, but when I try to view a page in FF, I get the same message that FF is already running. Where else do I need to look to find hidden files that are causing this?

    Did you uninstall the Firefox 4.0 beta version ?
    If you did then did you remove the personal data or otherwise removed to Firefox profile folder ?
    Make sure that you still have a (default) Firefox profile folder.<br />

  • Macbook Pro 2.3GHz Ret. Display - Display calibration assistant always results in very dark display! Has anyone seen this? Don't know what else to do...

    I do a lot of photography and tried calibrating my monitor using the calibration assitant built into Macbook Pro.
    No matter how many time and how I do this the monitor turns out very dark after calibration - ridiculously so - to a point that I just go back to the default profile! I have not tried true calibration using professional tools as I don't have mine with me where I am right now.
    Wondering if there is any tricks to this that I might have missed.
    Thanks for any pointers...

    I guess nobody knows if the crash that occured was legitimate or not?  Apple phone support could do nothing for me, so I guess I am left to drive 45 minutes to the nearest store.

  • I don't know where else to ask this: Quick Question about Logic Platinum 6

    Hi everyone,
    This question actually pertains to a copy of Logic Platinum 6 I own but I don't know where else to ask it, so here I am in the Logic 8 forum.
    I haven't touched Logic in a year or maybe two, and I just installed it on my computer and after attempting to start it up with two different XS keys (I thought I lost one so I have a replacement and I forget which one is the active one) it says "no XS key found" to both of them.
    I want to upgrade to Logic 8 but in the mean time I can't even get Logic 6 to recognize my XS key.
    Please help me out if you have any information that would be beneficial or know where I could seek help!
    Thank you!
    Colin C.

    When you plugin them in, are they recognised in System Profiler? Try differnt ports, connecting them directly and not on a hub. Try on a different computer if necessary.
    You can also try running:

    I don't know where else to post this, so if everyone can bare with me.
    I have iLife '05 on my computer. I'm trying to upgrade to iLife '06. I can't even get the DVD to install the software onto my computer. I get to the point of registering and then receive a message that there was an error and to try installing again. I don't know what to do now.

    Hi Mike,
    I'm moving my question to the location that Jeff suggested. I don't have another computer to try the disk in, however, since I've tried installing the iLife disk, I'm having problems trying to install completely different software.
    Thanks,

  • All of a sudden my iTunes stopped working, and I get the following error messages:   1. the program can't start because MSVCR80.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem   and   2. iTunes was not installed correct

    All of a sudden my iTunes stopped working, and I get the following error messages:
    1. the program can't start because MSVCR80.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem
    and
    2. iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 126).
    Now I've checked the forums and followed the advice of uninstalling all Apple applications, rebooting, and reinstalling iTunes.
    This is not working. I've tried installing as Administrator but doesn't make any difference at all.
    There must be a way to fix this? I'm not a tech geek but I want to avoid having to take my laptop back to factory settings to sort this out.
    Thanks

    Click here and follow the instructions. You may need to completely remove and reinstall iTunes and all related components, or run the process multiple times; this won't normally affect its library, but that should be backed up anyway.

  • I bought  my MacBook Pro in 2010. This is the first Mac I have owned and recently it is having some difficulty loading we pages, often timing out. This Mac environment is entirely different for me and I am not sure where to begin troubleshooting/clean-up.

    I bought  my MacBook Pro in 2010. This is the first Mac I have owned and recently it is having some difficulty loading we pages, often timing out. This Mac environment is entirely different for me and I am not sure where to begin troubleshooting and/ or clean-up. I have moderate computer skills and try not to download or access questionable material, however recently I visited the Ap Store and purchased a couple of different aps to use in record keeping and for making a flyer. I am not even sure how to remove these programs to see if it helps.
    Any tips or tricks are appreciated.
    Thank you!

    Time to see about the PRAM battery.
    By the way iOS and OS X are different systems.
    iOS is the operating system for iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch.

  • Somehow firefox has started when i boot up. how do i stop this and only start it when i want to?

    This started when I visited the website of Tom Tom GPS. Now every time I boot the computer, Firefox opens and my home page is Tom Tom. I don't want Firefox to open when I boot and I don't want Tom \Tom as my home page.

  • When you buy a macbook pro does it come with all the software you need

    when i purchase a macbook pro with retina display. will it come with all the software i need

    Hi logan_logan,
    Probably all depends on your past experience, but I'm getting a new Macbook Air next week, and I will be purchasing Microsoft Office. I have been using Word and Excel for years, and know all of the tricks, bells, and whistles, so just really don't want to go through a major learning curve to figure out how to use a new word processing and spreadsheet processing system.
    I've had a little experience with Pages on my iPad (which I know is not even a close comparison to what is on the Mac), but I'm just more comfortable with Word.
    So, I'd say depends on whether you want something that you are comfortable with, or something that is a new adventure! What's your pleasure?

  • How do I prevent Firefox from automatically starting when I boot-up my Mac in the morning?

    Whenever I boot up my Mac in the morning Firefox automatically starts and displays my home page. I would only like to see the desk top with no applications running. I am running OSX 10.4.11 on my laptop.
    == Started possibly a few weeks ago.

    Hmm.. Okay I've done a bit more digging and tried the following two things before the last restart.. Not sure which one actually worked but give these a shot (one at a time) and let us know which is the ''actual'' solution! :)
    1. Open Safari -> Preferences -> General
    - change "Default Web Browser" to Safari
    - Close all applications
    - Relaunch Safari and change default browser back to Firefox.
    2. Remove the check from "Reopen windows when logging in" in the logout dialog and logout of the computer..
    I suspect step 2 is actually the proper solution, but I did both so, hopefully one of them works for everyone else!

  • Don't know where else to turn

    Please help if you can,
    I'm having printing problems and can't resolve. Have an old Epson Stylus Photo 1280 and have cartridges from an OEM dealer. Never seemed to have problems before until recently. The printing is off <> muddy <> photo prints with too much magenta. BTW, have current drivers.
    Here's what's interesting   .  .  .   Have a friend with an HP photosmart 07560. Her computer is old and the monitor & printer are not calibrated together, never were. Created a PDF of the file and printed it "perfect" on her printer. She also has bought cartridges from the same company I use and has had no problems with color shifts etc..
    I have not calibrated my monitor & printer, never had to. Photos printed fine before. Could it be that maybe, just maybe this batch of cartridges is bad? I have other cartridges but haven't tried to use them. Don't want to open the packages and try & reseal them if the problem still exists.
    Also have an HP color laserjet 2600n but can't use it right now: does have a color shift because of a hardware problem [registration is off]. Inks are fine but a similar problem occured with it as well. Just wanted to print the photo to see if the color was "off." Yup, too much magenta on a white walled house [outside]. Like I said, my friend's HP 07560 printed the photo perfecto!
    Do you need any additional info to help solve this problem?
    Have CS3 and tried printing the photo from Photoshop & Acrobat. Didn't manipulate image in any way. Been a graphic artist since the early '90's and can't fingure out what is going on!
    Very frustrated and would appreciate ANY help I can get. I know this isn't directly a Photoshop problem but someone out there in the forum probably has had a similar problem and can help me. Could it be the cartridges and if so, why would both my printers be off [toner & cartridges] at the same time and not my friend's who is computer illiterate and doesn't even know what calibration means!
    Oh Please!!!!
    Thanks in advance,
    Ellen

    Just a quicky here: The company I bought the cartridges [and toners for another printer] from has really come through. Been doing business with them for several years and any problems I've had, they have responded more than graciously!!! BBB apporved, BTW! They're sending me 4 new cartidges and a UPS return label [I don't have to pay return postage]. I will then send back the defective ones.
    They are Color Toner Expert [www.colortonerexpert.com] if you want to do business with them. Great bunch of folks and have gone above the call of duty. They sell remanufactured toners / cartridges.
    I don't work for them <> but just want to pass along a great value. Internet companies can be shady and when ya find one ya can trust, well, it's worth passing along!

  • I keep getting an error message when trying to download i tunes. It says it's looking for MSVCR80.dll and I find it on my computer so I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

    I keep getting an error message when trying to download itunes. It says it can't find "msvcr80.dll, but when I search for it on my computer it is there. My itunes was working just fine before I got the message to download the latest upgrade. I've not had any problems doing that before now, so don't really know what to do.

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Bonjour
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
    Please note:
    Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.
