  • TS2551 When I open iphoto says I have 4500 pics I haven 't downloaded that many. When I looked I have pic of ebay home page facebook a lot of different web sites I've visited How do I stop this and why is this happening.

    When I open iphoto says I have 4500 pics I haven 't downloaded that many. When I looked I have pic of ebay home page facebook a lot of different web sites I've visited How do I stop this and why is this happening.

    This happens when someone drags the HD or a system folder icon to the iPhoto Window by accident. Solution: restore from back up created before this occurred.

  • HT2500 whenever I open the mail application a flurry of past emails appears from nowhere. How do I stop this happening ?

    whenever I open the mail application a flurry of past emails appears from nowhere. How do I stop this happening ?

    1. If by flurry of emails you mean they all appear opened as if clicked on.
    2. Or do you mean your inbox fills up with a whole lot of 'new' unread emails downloaded from the server, so that if you delete them they return next time you open Mail.
    If it is 1. Press (three keys) Option + Command + W
    This will close all mail windows including the inbox.
    Then press (two keys) Command + 1
    to return the inbox.
    That should stop any flurry next time you open Mail
    If 2., Open Mail Preferences > Accounts (select the account in question if there is more than one), click on Advanced, and where it says remove copy from server after retrieving message, select that choice and click Remove now.

  • Often when I do a search and then click on the link I am redirected to a fake or phishing website. How can I stop this? Thank you!

    Often when I do a search and then click on the link I am redirected to a fake or phishing website. How can I stop this? Thank you!

    Usually you would get to a phishing site directly by mistyping, or from the search itself.
    You can avoid a lot of phishing sites with the following:
    '''Tools > Options > Security'''<br>
    ''Known attack sites can be blocked here, uses information reported to Firefox and to Google.''<br>
    [x] Warn me when sites try to install add-ons<br>
    [x] Block reported attack sites<br>
    [x] Block reported web forgeries
    Having a good '''hosts''' file on your system can protect your entire system cross-application and all browsers and all your Firefox profiles against a lot malware. The '''hosts''' file must coded for www.example.com, example.com, anything.example.com -- '''Adblock Plus''' is more generic and can do more with less coding. See links below.

    Just so you don't miss important information about Adblock Plus, be aware that it does nothing by itself -- it needs filters. Be sure to install the "EasyList (US)" filter subscription.
    In your google search settings (preferences), you can filter adult content, but that is not phishing
    * http://www.google.com/preferences?complete=0&hl=en
    Phishing protection comes from your browser using collected phishing data -- not from the Google search itself where you might see a warning.

  • Sometimes the address bar / url field is filled up with weird characters. How can I stop this?

    The address bar in Firefox fills sometimes completely with strange characters. There are no letters or numbers, but symbols / icons. Is this a bug or something that I can change? Here you can see how this looks.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByVixQ4OnwKfWGJBZTRxRGJZWVE/edit?usp=sharing

    Try disabling the RSS Icon 1.0.6 extension. A number of users have reported that extension as causing that type of display.

  • As an employer i wish to see the private browsing sessions made by a member of my staff. How do i do this?

    a staff member has been using private browsing, this is not allowed in my Company. How can I view these browsing sessions, if at all.

    Private browsing history is not saved on the PC. That's the whole point.
    Your company firewall (or proxy server, if you use one) may generate and store logs of all employees' browsing sessions. In some cases, the firewall stores only general information and you need to set up a log capturing server to store the detail. You may need log analysis software extract the one employee's requests (e.g., using the employee's PC's IP address) from the detailed data.
    Before viewing the data, I suggest you check with your HR or legal department to avoid violating any privacy terms in your employment agreements and/or employee handbook.

  • I can't send messages on my iPad? The send button is not lit up and the addresses I put in showp with a res a mark.  How to I get this to work

    I cannot send any messages from my iPad.  The send button is not lit up.  My setting are on.  When I put the address in it comes up in red with an exclamation mark

    Delete the account, then re install it on the device.  You will need to get the passwords exactly right., and there are some other settings that matter, such as send and receive server names, and sometimes a specific port.  If you are not sure, check on the web for ' email settings' for your particular provider.  What probably happened is that when you changed your password, some other setting got tweaked.

    Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.<br />
    You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.<br />
    Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

  • When i open a new tab, it closes 3 seconds later automatically. how can I stop this?

    When I open a new tab, I cannot view it, the tab closes automatically. I then reload the tab and it closes again after 3 seconds. How can I stop this? I never had this problem before.
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == About two weeks ago, 2nd week in June 2010

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • When i want to return to my home page I click on the home icon and it resets the page to my home page but also open a blak tab which i don't want how can I stop this as i have too many tabs open.

    When I want to return to my home page after looking at a website I click on the home icon and it resets the page to my home page but also open a blak tab which i don't want.How can I stop this as I have too many tabs open and have to close all of them.

    You may have an unwanted extension that is modifying sites (or the toolbar area). Try this:
    Disable ALL nonessential or unrecognized extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:
    * Ctrl+Shift+a
    * orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, if in doubt, disable.
    Usually 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.
    Does that flush the tab?
    Please report back on anything suspicious you find so others can learn about its bad behavior.

  • Browser keeps opening with previous tabs from day before. How do I stop this?

    Under Tools>Options>General I have the browser set when I open the browser to "open up a blank page" but it keeps opening up previous tabs from the day before. How can I stop this? I read the forum boards but either did not find it or overlooked the answer. I checked all my other settings and cannot find anything that would be causing this. Please advise?

    You can check if you have a user.js file in the Firefox profile folder that sets the browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once pref to true.
