The green button, top left corner of a pop-up screen on MACbook, it's supposed to enlarge the pop-up to full MAC screen size, correct?  Mine does not.  Sometimes it makes the pop-up screen SMALLER.  Appreciate someone solving this for me.

Are you talking about the green '+' button in the top left corner? That technically doesn't enlarge it. It switches the window from the default window size to the custom size you made. You can enlarge the window by moving your mouse to the bottom right corner of the window, and dragging until you get the size you want.

  • What is the keyboard shortcut for the green "+" in top left corner?

    Can anybody advice me where can I find or where can I change shortcut for the green "+", which change the size of Safari window (sorry I even don't know the name of this button).
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi
    it's called Zoom - found under the Window menu, and if you create a new shortcut for Safari in System Preferences-Keyboard & Mouse-Keyboard Shortcuts... you can assign a key combo of your choice to it.

    When you set up your ipad did you or your husband also set up a rescue e-mail address for you? If so, that would be why he received the instructions. Or do you sync your ipad with his computer?
    Actually in terms of it being a problem, it actually makes it easier for you to answer your security questions and follow the instuctions to get back on your ipad. Otherwise, you'll have to call Apple Support.
    To delete the rescue e-mail account pleases read this thread. (Poster's photos did not come through with the instructions.)

  • My mac mini does not boot, after backing the enire system onto an external drive with Carbon Copy Clone

    My Mac Mini does not boot, after backing the enire system onto an external drive with Carbon Copy Clone. I had switched the start-up disk back to the original of course. Now all I see is the Apple logo. What should I do? Thanks in advance.

    Try disconnecting any external devices, especially hard drives
    and try rebooting.
    If that doesn't help, then :
    If you are running Lion, boot to the Recovery HD and run a
    Repair Disk on the OSX partition.
    If Snow Leopard, boot to the installl DVD and run Repair Disk.

  • Why does Firefox 4 look different on xp than Win 7. Some of the features described in the intro are not showing up like the firefox button top left.

    When I loaded the new version on my office computer running Win 7 it looked like the promo but when I upgraded my other computers running xp it looks more like the earlier versions. What is the story people!!!

    Try turning off the menu toolbar
    * Use keyboard keys '''Alt''' then in turn '''V , T , M'''
    Note the menubar may be temporarily turned back on by using the Alt key even if the '''orange''' ''"Firefox Button"'' is displayed.
    Firefox 4 probably by default does not dislplay the bookmarks toolbar, and will display the Tabs on top.
    There are other changes; and some users do not like them, but in most cases firefox 4 can be made to look and work like firefox 3.6 if required.

  • I am able to use my Internet but in the top left corner it says No Service?

    IPad4G
    CAn no figure out the message in top left corner No Service
    Over in the top right is a picture of a lock with a circle arrow around it?
    ANy help appreciated!

    Regarding the "No Service", I'm guessing that you have an iPad with WiFi + cellular.  The "No Service" indicates you are out of a cellular service coverage area.  You can use your internet because you are connected by WiFi.

  • I have the new macbook pro from late 2011. when i try plugging my cannon gl2 into the mac via firewire 800 it does not show up in iMovie as an option to import from. i even have gone into my settings on the camera and changed it to vcr.

    I have the new MacBook Pro from late 2011. "the one before the new ritina display" i have a cannon gl2 video camera which is mini dv. when i plug it into my mac via firwire 800 it does not show up in the iMovie. i have set the settings on the camera to vcr mode and changed it to av->dv out. when i click on the import from camera on imovie it doesnt even show my camera in it. it just gives me the option to import video from my facetime camera. the camera is turned on the wires are connected i know for fact that its a firewire and not a usb. i know what they each look like. i bought the firewire cable and it was marked down cause it was an opened and used item. would it be possible that it could be deffected and if that is not the reason what other options do i have?

    I would say that odds are high that you have a bad cable. Maybe that is why they returned it.
    I would suggest trying a different firewire cable.
    You can find Firewire cables inexpensively at monoprice.com. You need a 4 pin to 9 pin firewire cable.
    Here is a link.
    http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10301
    Other things to check:
    Is your camera plugged in to wall power (not to batteries only). Must be hooked to an AC power source to import.

  • WET54G does not seem to make WRT300N signal better

    Greetings,
    A friend of mine is using a WRT300N, firmware v0.93.3, as his router for both wireless and wired connections. The signal does not reach the other side of his house for whatever reason. The router is less than 25 feet from the other side of the house but the signal does not reach, so he purchased a WET54G. I set it up for him, while it was hardwired to one of the computers, then I unplugged it and moved it about 15 feet or so away from the WRT300N and kept it wireless. It does not seem to make the signal any better at the other side of the house. I went into the WET54G's settings and performed the Site Survey, selected the WRT300N's SSID and everything seemed to connect just fine. Is there anything else to this? What else could I try to make this signal better? I feel that there is probably some obstacles in the way of the signal, like an electrical breaker room and an air conditioning unit, as well as some dry wall, but I didn't think that would make a big deal. Anyway, here is some pertinent information about the devices, maybe my settings are just not right. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also any recommendations on antenna's would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance.
    WET54G:
    SSID: home
    Network Type: Infrastructure
    Security is Enabled and set to WPA Pre-Shared, TKIP, same password as WRT300N
    Device Ip: 192.168.0.109
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.0.10
    Transmission Rate: Auto
    Authentication Type: Open
    Threshold: 2347
    Frag Threshold: 2346
    Cloning Mode: Disabled
    WRT300N:
    SSID:home
    Network Mode: Mixed (Which N,B, & G)
    Radio Band: Wide-40Mhz Channel
    Wide channel: 3
    Standard Channel: 5 - 2.432GHZ
    SSID Broadcast: Enabled
    Wireless Security: PSK Personal, TKIP, same pass as WET54G
    Mac Filter is Disabled
    Device Ip: 192.168.0.1
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Start Ip: 192.168.0.100
    Maxium Number of Users: 10
    Also, when I go to DHCP Reservation, which I am not using, I do not see the WET54G, but the desktop and the four labtops are listed.
    All the settings on the WRT300N, under  Advance Wireless Settings are all default.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Message Edited by MeGGa on 04-21-200705:44 PM

    I am a little confused by your post.  Are you using the WET to receive a wireless connection from the WRT300N, or are you trying to use the WET to retransmit the wireless signal, and thereby increase your wireless range?   The WET is designed only to receive a signal, then pass it along an ethernet wire to the computer's ethernet port.
    The WET54G is set to an improper fixed LAN IP address.  Fixed (static) LAN IP addresses must be OUTSIDE the DHCP server range.  Your DHCP server range is 192.168.0.100  thru 192.168.0.109.    I would suggest you set your WET to 192.168.0.226  (similar to its default), unless you have another device at that address.  At least get it out of your DHCP server range.   Because 192.168.0.226 is automatically recognized as a fixed LAN IP address, you do not need to make a "DHCP Reservation" for it.    Additionally, the gateway on the WET should be the same as the WRT300N's address, 192.168.0.1
    I'm not sure why you are getting such a poor wireless range.  However, there is no reason to expect the WET54G to have any more range than an ordinary wireless g card, unless you have put a high gain antena on it, like the HGA7S.
    Your WRT300N would be expected to have its best range if the computer that you were connecting to used a Linksys wireless N adapter.
    Also, make sure your WRT300N is properly located.  Try to minimize the obstructions between the router and computer.  Make sure the router is placed in an open area, and several feet up off the floor.   Do not place it behind your computer monitor, or with other obstructions around it.  The antennas should be verticle.  I am not sure of how to position that square antenna - perhaps twisting it to the right or left might help.
    Make sure the WRT300N has a unique SSID.  Do not use "linksys".  Do not use any SSID that your neighbors are using.
    Poor wireless connections are often caused by radio interference from other 2.4 GHz devices. This includes wireless phones, wireless baby monitors, Bluetooth (including Bluetooth game controllers), microwave ovens, wireless mice and keyboards, and your neighbor's wireless network. Even some 5+ GHz phones also use the 2.4 Ghz band. Unplug these devices, and see if that corrects your problem.
    In your router, try a different channel. There are 11 channels in the 2.4 GHz band. Usually channel 1, 6, or 11 works best. Check out your neighbors, and see what channel they are using. Because the channels overlap one another, try to stay at least +5 or -5 channels from your strongest neighbors. For example, if you have a strong neighbor on channel 9, try any channel 1 through 4.
    Also, you might want to try separating your own channels.  I see you are using 3 and 5.   Maybe further apart would help.
    Hope this helps.

  • How do I get the orange firefox button to show up on the top left corner of my page?

    So, I've installed, and reinstalled the new Firefox 4. It seems like only half the features have shown up. For example, I don't have the orange firefox button in the top left corner. I also don't have the button for bookmarks. On every other machine that I've installed firefox 4 on has not had issues like this. I don't know why I'm having issues on my laptop. If there's a way to fix it, I would appreciate it. I don't mind how it is right now, but I do like the cleaner look and the orange firefox button, instead of the buttons that show up now that are labeled: "File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, etc."

    * You see the orange (on Linux gray) Firefox button if the Menu Bar is hidden (View > Toolbars > Customize or right-click a toolbar).
    * If you need to access the hidden Menu bar then press F10 or hold down the Alt key to make the Menu Bar appear temporarily.

  • How do i get the firefox button to appear (top left corner) ??

    i have downloaded the newest version of firefox on my work computer... the new firefox button in the top left corner does not appear... how do i get it ??? ....i have firefox on all other (home) computers & its there on all of them !!!
    firefox is awesome !!!!!

    You see the orange (on Linux gray) Firefox button if the Menu Bar is hidden (View > Toolbars > Customize or right-click a toolbar).
    You can hide or make the Menu bar visible via View > Toolbars, also accessible via Firefox > Options.

  • I have a small window quickly popping up and disappearing in the top left corner of my screen?

    I apologize in advance if this has been covered elsewhere, but I have been searching and haven't found anything yet. And thank you for any help you can offer, it is greatly appreciated.
    Every 15 seconds or so a small, empty window will pop up in the top left corner of my screen and then vanish instantly. It opens and closes in a blink, so quickly that I am not able to interact with the window in any way. However, it shows up momentarily as a firefox tab on my bottom panel, so I know it is a firefox problem.
    It is only an issue because whenever it pops up I am exited from fullscreen if I am watching a video online, and anything that I am typing while the window pops up will be ignored.
    I am currently running Linux Mint Olivia 15 Cinnamon. However, I had the exact same problem when I was running Windows 8. In both cases, firefox has been installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled, which does not fix anything. I have updated firefox since it started happening, which also did not fix anything.
    It was very tricky, but I did manage to get a screenshot of the box while it was open.
    The same question was asked here, but never resolved: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/953373

    Does this only happen on specific pages?
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
    *Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.
