Why does my location change every time I start/restart my computer?

I have yahoo weather set to my location. Every time I switch to an other account or start /restart my computer it changes to another location. I follow the "Firefox cure" Yahoo gives for the problem but it continues to do the same . This started about a week ago when I updated Firefox.
The problem is about to drive me nuts.
HELP !!

Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause
Firefox issues. '''Disable All of them.'''

  • Why does my font change every time I quit FCPX?

    I've been using FCPX for about a month now, and I love it.  However, a few things keep happening that I can't seem to figure out why.  The most obvious is when I set a font to title text, then quit the program.  When I come back later, the font is totally different to the one I set previously.  Does anyone else have this problem?  Is there a solution?
    Please help!
    Thanks,
    RJ

    This is a problem with projects created in 10.0.2. It seems to have ben fixed for projects made in 10.0.3.

  • Why does internet options reset every time I start firefox 5.0?

    Everytime I restart firefox, it is not able to connect to the internet. The proxy setting in the network settings is set to manual proxy configuration. Even though I set it to auto-detect proxy settings for this network. It does not save the setting. It goes back to manual again when I shut down firefox. And the next time I restart firefox, I have to set it again. This has never happened in previous versions. Started only after I installed 5.0. Am I doing something wrong ??

    See: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unresponsive_Script_Warning
    Bear in mind that Firefox 5.0 is still in BETA, so there are bound to be problems with it still.
    So do your bit and report the issue using the Feedback option. The full candidate is slated for release on June 21.

  • Why does my iTunes hang every time when using automatic device detect?

    Why does my iTunes hang every time that I connect either of my devices (iTouch-4th Gen, iPod Nano-5th Gen), to my Win 7 (64-bit) PC desktop?  By the way, this does not happen if I open iTunes first, and then connect the device.  So my workaround was to simply uncheck the checkbox that allows iTunes to start automatically upon device connection.  This doesn't fix the problem, but it allows me to synch my device, but it would be nice to be able to have the autodetect work properly, so that iTunes would start normally without locking up on me and freezing. That's what I mean by 'hanging'.  My whole computer doesn't freeze--only iTunes.

    Hello E
    Start with finding the path where the songs are on your PC by right clicking the songs that are missing in iTunes and click Get Info. You should get a window that pops up and in the Summary tab; the path will be there. Then navigate to where it was and see if the files exist. Other than that you can try to search your computer to find those files. Checkout the articles below for tips on finding the missing music, also if some of the tracks are downloaded from the iTunes Store you can download the tracks again by deleting the missing tracks from iTunes and then navigating to the purchases section in the iTunes Store to download them again.

  • Why does my router disconnect every time I sleep the computer? Why did this only start to happen recently?

    Why does my router disconnect every time I sleep the computer? Why did this only start to happen recently?

    Actually it does with Ethernet too: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2412?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
    What happens when the Mac goes to sleep (not just into idle mode or display sleep)?
    On all Macs:
    The microprocessor goes into a low-power mode
    Video output is turned off, and a connected display may turn off or enter its own idle state
    Apple-supplied hard disks spin down; third-party hard disks may spin down
    On portable Macs:
    The Ethernet port turns off, if applicable (see note below)
    Expansion card slots turn off
    The built-in modem, if present, turns off (see note below)
    An AirPort card, if present, turns off (see note below)
    The USB ports only responds to the power key on an external keyboard (see below)
    The optical media drive, if present, spins down
    Audio input and output turns off
    Keyboard illumination, if a feature of your portable computer, turns off
    But see the note about selecting, "Wake For Network Access" in Energy Saver preferences.
    Note: Portable computers have no network connectivity when in sleep mode, but can wake if the Energy Saver option "Wake for network access" is enabled. If you wish to use file sharing or don't want to interrupt your Internet connection, you should not manually put the computer to sleep, and you should drag the "Computer sleep" slider to Never.

  • Why does the slider disappear every time I use it to move the window (Windows: FF 32.0)?

    Why does the slider disappear every time I use it to move the window (Windows: FF 32.0)? How do I get the slider back?

    Problem solved: I have been using Walnut for Firefox ver. 2.0.28 theme. For some reason this has been causing the problem. Started FF in Safe Mode, and the slider problem disappeared. Then proceeded to re-enable the Walnut theme: the problem reappeared. Disabled Walnut theme and reenabled all my other add-ons (about 6 of them). Still no problem. So, clearly there is a problem with the use of Walnut theme in FF ver. 32, at least on my Windows 7 installation.
    Thanks for all your suggestions and help. Good job, all!

  • Why does my iPhoto quit every time i use it?

    why does my iPhoto quit every time i use it?

    Thanks for your help.
    1st, when I go to software updates, it says all my software is up to date.  Perhaps that is because I only have OS 10.7.5 and the updated iPhoto version is for an updated OS version.
    I turned off the counts in prefernces and still can empty the trash.  It gets stuck and will not empty more than about 1/5 of the trash.
    Can you help me figure out the fastest way to back up iPhoto.  I have the cloud backup but not sure how to check to see if it is actually backing up my photos.  Do you know how to check into this?  Is it better to back up on a hard drive?
    Thanks again for your help ...

  • Why does the organizer update every time the program opens?

    Why does the organizer open every time the program opens?

      It normally updates if there are new images or edits which are picked up from the watch folder. The default watch folder is My Pictures+sub-folders.
     

  • Every time I start up my computer and load firefox, the theme I was using is not showing up.

    Every time I start up my computer and load Firefox, the theme I was using has gone back to the default one. The theme is still on my computer and it works if I change it back, I just don't know why it won't show up when I first load Firefox.

  • HT4436 For the past two weeks, every time I start up my computer I'm asked for an iCloud login. I've never used iCloud and I'm not likely to. How do I get this login to stop automatically showing up?

    For the past two weeks, every time I start up my computer I'm asked for an iCloud login. I've never used iCloud and I'm not likely to. How do I get this login to stop automatically showing up? I'm using an iMac G5 with OS 10.9.4.

    One more quick thing first. Hold the SHIFT key this time as you startup and see if that gets you any further (this is called 'Safe Mode' by the way). I'm not too confident that this will work in your case but it's worth a try. If it boots up, go into Disk Utility and repair permissions.
    If it doesn't, you're going to have to do an Archive & Install which will install a fresh copy of the OS over the top BUT keep all your users, files and apps in place.

  • I keep getting error message "AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found" every time I start up my computer. How can I fix this

    I recieve this message every time I start my computer, AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found. How can I fix this?

    No problem.
    You can either get it via Apple Software Update ("Start > All Programs > Apple Software Update" ... it'll appear in the "New programs" section) or by downloading an installer from the following page on the Apple Website:

  • Why does the port settings on my iPad change every time I sync with my computer. After syncing I have to go in and change the port settings so I can send and receive emails on my iPad.

    Every time iSync my iPad 2 with my computer it changes the port settings. Has anyone else had this issue?

    When you sync the iPad, do you have mail settings configured to sync to the iPad? You could have different settings on your computer that might be affecting the email set up on the iPad when you sync.

  • Why Does iTunes 6 crash every time I try to open it????

    I'm ready to tear my hair out. This is NOT what I want to be doing at 11:43PM. It all started because I wanted to download the song "Wild Thing" the other night. I got a message indicating to download it I have to upgrade to iTunes 6. Given that it's a free upgrade, why not. After a couple of days of assorted problems doing the installation, finally got that right (or so it seemed).
    However, every time I click to open iTunes, it immediately crashes. When I click to report the crash to Microsoft and follow the link, I get this message (my narrative continues after the Microsoft info below).

    I've even tried temporarily shutting down antivirus and antispyware before installing. No dice. Same problem.
    Is this software just buggy or what? I don't WANT to troubleshoot. I just want to access my iTunes library!!! I need 2 or 3 simple steps to make this work. I didn't even want to download iTunes 6. I was perfectly happy with the prior version.

    Go back to a version of iTunes that worked for you. When I upgraded to 6.0.2, I crashed every time I plugged an iPod in. I went back to 6.0.1, and everything works fine now. Make sure you completely uninstall your current "upgrade" of iTunes, then go to http://www.filehippo.com/download_itunes/
    to get a prior version of iTunes for installation.
    Please respond if this works. Seems like problems after the 6.0.2 release of iTunes for Windows have been rampant. Like you, I assumed that every upgrade of iTunes was automatically an improvement. Not so, at least for me and a lot of other users.
    Good luck.
