Why does the default theme for firefox 4 only work with add-ons such as personas? It will allow me to preview an alternative theme with a persona but won't let me apply it without switching to the default. No option for disabled and visually impaired.

Firefox 4 will no longer allow me to use a theme (other than the default) with a Persona. When I "try on" a skin, FF4 allows me to ''preview'' the theme with the persona but will not allow me to ''apply'' the persona without '''automatically''' switching my chosen theme (disorganizing my menu's, bookmarks, and tool-bars) back to the default. Firefox 4 also begins to load an all-default setting browser when it is first opened slowing my browsing start up. All issues were not experienced before the Mozilla Firefox 4.0 upgrade.

Hi David,
Thank you for your detailed question. It sounds like the real issue is pdf files. Are there any antivirus/firewalls that might be blocking this specific file type? or are there any preferences in your control panel that might be blocking this?
Do you have any stored preferences for PDF files in Firefox?

    The computer I use for Itunes (my laptop) only has XP so I can't use ICloud:(
    I have a desktop that operates using with Vista.
    I downloaded 10.5 and sought to sync my two iphones and two ipads with the desktop in order to use ICloud. However I got warning messages that if I synced with this computer that had none of my extensive library of apps, music, podcasts, etc. would be on it, I would lose it all.
    I did authorize the computer. I knew enough to do that but am terrified that I will lose everything that I have accumulated and still won't be able to use ICloud.
    Isn't there a way to do this? Shift my library FROM my devices to the desktop?
    Thanks

    This is a tedious solution, which is stupid!  And some users report an inability to reauthorize a computer after an "en masse” deauthorization.  I can’t believe Apple doesn’t provide a list or menu to find out which computers you’ve authorized! Obviously, APPLE knows (or else they couldn’t tell us how many computers we have authorized)--so why can’t they give us access to that information about our own computers??!!!
    And for an already-authorized computer with a hard drive that’s since been replaced and upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite, would it be recognized as a “new computer” and require authorization? Would its previous incarnation (i.e., with the old hard drive and OS) be considered a separate computer? Some users report they can’t authorize a computer after an OS upgrade because of that. Can’t believe we have to do such a bass-ackwards kludge!

  • Why does search engine drop down menu only works once?

    I'm quite happy with the new Safari 4 (first time user) but I'm frustrated by only being able to select once with my mouse from the 'Recent Searches' drop down window.
    Let me explain. After I launch Safari 4, I'm able to use my mouse and select one of the recent searches in the drop down menu in the normal fashion - go to an item on the menu and press the LH mouse button.
    However, after I've done this once, I can't do it again. When I select an item from the list and click my LH mouse button, the search window goes blank. The previous Google search results stay the same. If I highlight an item from the drop down menu and press the Enter key on the keyboard, it works fine. A mystery!
    The funny part is that it works fine on my other laptop.
    I've unistalled and reinstalled twice but with no success. When I do reinstall, my previous preferences/settings are still there. Where's the preference file so I can delete it? Don't know, but this might help my problem.
    Anyone else seen this problem?
    Regards
    John

    Hi mach37, can you delete the Vosteran search engine by highlighting it on the Search panel of the Options dialog and using the Remove button?
    ''If it comes back:'' I would suspect a bad add-on. Here's my suggested procedure for tracking down and cleaning those up:
    (1) Open the Windows '''Control Panel''', Uninstall a Program (on XP: Add/Remove Programs). After the list loads, click the "Installed on" column heading to group the infections, I mean, additions, by date. This can help in smoking out undisclosed bundle items that snuck in with some software you agreed to install. Take out as much trash as possible here.
    (2) Open Firefox's '''Add-ons page''' using either:
    * Ctrl+Shift+a
    * "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
    In the left column, click '''Plugins'''. Set nonessential and unrecognized plugins to "Never Activate".
    In the left column, click '''Extensions'''. Then, if in doubt, disable (or Remove, if possible) unrecognized and unwanted extensions.
    Often a link will appear above at least one disabled extension to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links as the last step.
    Any improvement?
    (3) You can search for remaining issues with the '''scanning/cleaning tools''' listed in our support article: [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware]]. These on-demand scanners are free and take considerable time to run. If they finish quickly and especially if they require payment, you may have a serious infection. I suggest the specialized forums listed in the article in that case.
    Success?

  • When I open a new page, Firefox won't let me close it without closing altogether the website I am exploring. This has happened since the "update" and happened on multiple website. What happened to "close tab?"

    I used to be able to click "File" and "close tab" to close a page without closing a website. For a few weeks after the last Firefox update, I had to hit "exit" and that worked the same, but now it closes everything. Very irritating and time-consuming.
    How do I close just the one page/pdf/document that I am looking at without closing out the website or my browser altogether?

  • Why does my I-Phone 4 calendar only show apptmnts from the last 90 days?  How can I see appointments prior to then?

    Why does my I-Phone 4 calendar only show apptmnts from the last 90 days?  How can I see appointments from prior to then?

    The Sync setting only appears if you are syncing your calendar with iCloud.  If you are syncing them to another service (such as Google) you would need to go your account with that service and see if you can change the setting there.
    If you are syncing your calendar with iCloud, you should see the Sync setting, and be able to tap and change it.

    I am having major issues with links in keynote! Even though the links (a navigation system) are on the master page, they are only working on some of my slides. Anyone have ideas on how to fix this or similar issues? Help!
    I have created a navigation system on the master pages and set the presentation to links only mode. I also have other links scattered throughout the program, like a linkable table of contents, etc. Some of them work, some of them don't. Not sure why. Anyone out there having similar issues? Or have any idea on how I can solve this issue? Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Links should not create any problems in Keynote.  If they are set up correctly on text, the text will be underlined. Objects that have links will have a curved arrow bottom right, if you click the arrow a popup will display the link information.
    Try this repair for Keynote,  ensure you complete all the tasks and in the order shown:

    delete all the iWork applications if you have them, not just Keynote, using Appcleaner from Mac Update, its a freeware application

    empty the trash:  Finder > Empty Trash

    Shut down your Mac, wait 30 seconds, then power on the Mac, immediately after the start chime, hold down the Shift key
    When you see the grey Apple symbol and progress indicator (a spinning gear), release the Shift key.
    If you are prompted to log in, type your password, then hold down the Shift key again as you click Log in.

    Let the Mac fully boot up, it will take longer as the OS is repairing the drive

    when fully booted, go to Applications > Utilities > Disc Utility; click on the boot drive then First Aid tab and click  repair disc permissions

    when complete, restart the Mac normally, Apple menu > Restart

    install Keynote from the Mac App Store

    Dear Sara,
    I notice that you didn't reply to my questioning the this ambiguous stipulation of your services being extended to Adobe's rights in the use of my personal content or intellectual and creative property.
    When I returned to my "files" section in Adobe Reader where they were transferred to in converting them to PDF they had all been removed. Around 6 projects in progress plus notes and several creative design images in one instance (attached to a writing project). I have access to the files and I am downloading Cloud desktop interface.
    Does the interface of Reader in desktop automatically remove them from my online account, making them exclusively offline from here on OR must they be physically removed and so have they been removed by another party?
    Finally, since they are made copyright in the conversion, must future files be made uploaded to signify and account for them as made copyright by the process record in my personal account?
    Excuse my asking lots of questions. My work has been tampered with in the past and I am excited about this service I can avail of in protecting all of my work.
    Yours Sincerely,Liam Anthony Dalton BA, FA
