Display of some URLs corrupted in Mail

Whenever I open a new email containing an inline URL, at least one of those URLs is visually corrupted until I attempt to interact with it or close and re-open the email.  Here's two examples:
Anyone else experiencing this?

I'm still getting this.  Here's some recent examples:
I can't be the only one to be seeing this, surely?  I don't use any Mail bundles or plugins.  OS X fully updated.  This problem doesn't seem to be visible in any other areas of the OS or third-party apps.

  • What to do if Windows displays an "iTunes.exe - Corrupt File" message

    Greetings fellow Podders, Resident Furball here...
    It is about time that I produced a single post for all the chkdsk issues that we've been discussing since November 2004. The Apple KB article seems to cover the major points succinctly, but we need to address the more serious variations and flavours of the problem.
    What to do if Windows displays an "iTunes.exe - Corrupt File" message
    Many users are coming across this seemingly distressing error message in Windows when connecting their iPods. As described in Apple KB Article 300554, the message reads:
    iTunes: iTunes.exe - Corrupt File
    The file or directory \iPod_Control\iTunes\????????? is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.
    and the ????????? can be anything (eg. sysinfo, Temp1, DeviceInfo etc.).
    Don't panic!
    If you do see this, don't worry, and don't panic. Contrary to what the error message reads, this issue actually has very little to do with iTunes. The iPod_Control is the key to this - because this folder doesn't even exist in iTunes... it's on the iPod!
    ...so! Installing and uninstalling iTunes really won't do you much good at all... it's the iPod that needs attention.
    What's causing this error?
    To be honest, we don't know. We saw a massive number of reports of this issue back in November 2004, because iPod Updater 2004-11-15 contained a firmware bug that corrupted iPod system files when the Pod entered Deep Sleep.
    But this firmware bug was corrected in iPod Updater 2005-06-26.
    Of late, we have seen a resurgence in chkdsk errors on Discussions. Some of these are caused by the old buggy firmware that people still have. Some of the errors are more serious and are hardware and operating system-related. But we have still to pin down the exact cause of this error.
    Okay, so what do I do if I see this error?
    In short, as Apple have recommended in their KB article:
    Restore your iPod, using the latest iPod Updater.
    Follow the instructions carefully. Ensure that you download the iPod Updater. Ensure that you install it, and then ensure that you run it with the iPod connected and follow the prompts to the letter.
    The broad majority of the errors are painlessly fixed this way. Of course, it does mean that your iPod will be wiped, so make sure that you have your music/data backed up, and/or present in iTunes so you can resynchronise it when you have finished Restoring.
    Okay, I've Restored, but the error is still coming up
    Are you sure you've Restored? Quite a number of folks are assuming that just downloading the iPod Updater is enough. It's not. And neither is downloading iPod Updater, and installing it on your computer. It needs to be implemented on the iPod, according to the iPod Updater instructions.
    Okay, so if you have Restored your iPod, and you are still getting this error, then you have a variety of options available.
    Chkdsk errors that are not fixed with a Restore are most likely down to two things:
    1) A physical issue on the iPod itself
    2) An issue on the computer's operating system
    Here's where it gets woolly. There are a variety of things you could try...
    Format the iPod in Windows
    This would usually have the same effect as a Restore, but a deep-level format in Windows is something that Apple have recommended in the past, as a last resort to completely wipe the iPod before performing a Restore with iPod Updater. This process wipes the iPod.
    To do this:
    1) Enable Disk Mode on the iPod. You can do this either in iTunes (which is best), or manually on the iPod itself.
    2) Open My Computer and locate your iPod
    3) Right-click the iPod and select Format
    4) Leave the parameters set at their defaults, and ensure Quick Format is unchecked
    5) Hit Format
    6) Then Restore your iPod as normal.
    Run the Chkdsk utility
    You could run the chkdsk utility on your iPod. But Restoring your iPod has the same effect as running chkdsk. Chkdsk does not wipe your iPod.
    1) Enable Disk Mode as above
    2) Determine the drive letter of your iPod from My Computer
    3) Go to Start, Run
    4) Type cmd. Hit Enter to take you to the Command Prompt.
    5) Type chkdsk /f X:, where X is the drive letter of your iPod. Hit Enter, and any corrupt files are found and corrected.
    Run Windows ScanDisk
    ScanDisk is the Windows version of Chkdsk. It does not wipe your iPod.
    1) Enable Disk Mode
    2) Right-click the iPod in My Computer, select Properties
    3) Select Tools
    4) Select the option to scan the disk for errors
    Try changing the Drive Letter of the iPod
    Sometimes Windows confuses the drive letters, and this can cause the iPod to be adversely affected. Try the instructions detailed in Apple KB Article 93499 to change the drive letter of the iPod. This does not wipe your iPod.
    Try changing Hardware Policies for the iPod
    The Hardware Policies in Windows have been known to affect the way in which the iPod connects, synchronises, and disconnects. This does not wipe your iPod.
    1) Enable Disk Mode so the iPod appears in My Computer
    2) Right-click the iPod in My Computer
    3) Select Properties
    4) Select Hardware Policies
    5) Select Optimize for Performance (instead of Optimize for Removal)
    6) Restart your computer.
    Contact Apple for a replacement iPod
    Some chkdsk issues have been caused by faulty hardware. As a last resort, contact Apple Support by phone to report your issue, and/or request an iPod Service.
    If you explain that you have followed all these steps, you should have a strong case for obtaining a replacement iPod.
    Thank you to everyone for their continued support, kindness and excellent troubleshooting skills here on Discussions. There are countless people that I am deeply grateful to for their assistance in handling this issue. Rest assured folks, you have made me the Discussions Furball that I am today.
    Happy Podding folks!

  • Norton utilities claims version 24 has adware in it and will not show some URLs and disables other URLs.

    after upgrading to version 24 Firefox for windows, the Norton tool bar is incompatible with Firefox, no big deal I did not like it anyway, disabled it.
    But when Norton Antivirus went and scanned my system it comes back with the message that Firefox has Adware in it and must be removed.
    Firefox now will not correctly display some URLs that I use Particularly the WWW.wunderground.com ones and others are just disabled. These are ones that I use with my Weather-station hobby. I am not sending this from the machine that has Norton installed but my work machine, I can work on this later when I get home.

    Do a clean reinstall and delete the Firefox program folder before (re)installing a fresh copy of the current Firefox release.
    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
    *Firefox 24: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html
    Uninstall your current Firefox version, if possible, to cleanup the Windows registry and settings in security software.
    *Do NOT remove personal data when you uninstall your current Firefox version, because all profile folders will be removed and you lose personal data like bookmarks and passwords from profiles of other Firefox versions.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    *(32 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *(64 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and won't be affected by an uninstall and (re)install, but make sure that "remove personal data" is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.
    If you keep having problems then also create a new profile.

    Thanks in advance for any advice,

    You have applied a height of "auto"to your menubar container, which gives it no height at all in some browsers. If you have a clue what height you would like to display for your menubar, give it, instead of:
        <div style="height: auto;" id="p7PMM_1" class="p7PMMh04">
    Better yet, leave it in the CSS file, where you will find it when you go looking for it. You already assign a height there:
    .p7PMMh04 {
        width: auto;
        height: 20px;
        margin: 0 auto;
        font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
        font-size: 11px;
        font-weight: bold;
        background-image: url(http://home.roadrunner.com/~jgigandet/trinity/img/new_bk.gif);
        background-repeat: repeat-x;
        background-color: #000;
        text-align: left;
        line-height: normal;
    Because your inline style of height:auto; has more proximity (is closer) to the element being styled, it overrides the style in the stylesheet and applies the height: auto; instead of allowing the height: 20px;

  • How to display the entire RSS article in Mail?

    OK, this is what I really thought RSS in Mail was going to be... Since I only have access to email at work and no web browser, I had hoped to forward all those RSS feeds to my work inbox so I could then read the paper or whatever, while still looking like I'm at my desk doing work! Ha!
    So, how can you get Mail RSS to display the entire article right in Mail so I can use the forward feature and forward all those articles that I want to my work email address?
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
    This way I don't have to click on my web browser, "Email article", as they would already be in my mailbox ready to be forwarded!

    RSS (http://www.rssboard.org/rss-specification) is an open format that allows users to aggregate content from different web-sites into a single "channel". The standard has very few "required fields" that boil down to:
    brief description
    The rest is optional, i.e. up to the publishing website to decide whether to make available or not. It is also important to know, that many RSS feeds refer to content that is protected by copyright and hence must be reproduced under the terms decided by the publisher.
    Full text is not an optional field of RSS. Some websites may decide to use "brief description" to feed an entire piece of content, but that is not a standard behavior.
    In other words: what You're looking for can not be achieved through RSS feeds. Getting back to Your original problem - no web access at work – I'm wondering: how come You get RSS feeds and can not read the web pages? RSS feeds are using the same protocol (HTTP) as web pages and unless there's a very sneaky firewall involved, Web browsing should not be a problem.

  • URL in outlook mails (Workflow)

    Hi Experts,
    I am using the extended notification for my customized user decision task to send mails in outlook. There are two outcomes for the user decision task approve and reject and getting two links in the outlook also. Its fine as required.
    But the problem is, I am having one URL in the task description of user decision task. I am getting the same link in outlook as a normal text format not hypertext.
    It would be great, if you could throw some light on how to get the URL in outlook mail through extended notification of workflow.

    If I try to send the same link in the task description of user decision task to my outlook, i am getting the link plain text 'http://www.google.com' not in hypertext format as above.
    My question : Is there any way to send the URL in the task decription to outlook mail as hyper text format?
    In my task description, i have given the URL in the below format.
    This URL_ELEMENT is a multiline container and value of this variable passed from previous step ' Set container element' as http://www.google.com

    The same solution that I suggested above applies here. Build your email message as a single string.  Line lenght won't matter.  Then convert the string to the binary table.  The binar table won't be restricted to 255 character line lenghts - and in fact wont' care about line lenghts at all.  Your long URL in your hyperlink will be fine.

    Hi all,
    just that. We have some urls accessible only from our office lan, and will be nice to allow the clients to split tunnel all but this specific urls.
    Possible? Thanks in advance!

    I was thinking that you were trying to reach a web server hosted on the LAN. I see now that you are trying to reach external sites that are only accessible from the LAN. I am not aware of any way to allow a partially split tunnel, if I find anything I will update.
