Firefox when saving a "complete html" file is downloading a folder and "2" copies of the html file not one. One of these has the same name but "0" kb content

Hi. The only save options for a full html type file on Firefox is as "web page, complete" and as I say when saving with Firefox the program is saving the usual yellow folder with links and artwork files etc, but is saving 2 copies of the HTML file where on of these files is empty, won't open and gets locked to the destination it was saved to. This empty file can't be moved, and can't be deleted. When this is attempted it gives message "cannot delete (or "move" if this is the case) : Cannot read from the source file or disc."
To overcome this I now use Internet Explorer, dut prefer not to. I have also deleted Firefox from my system and re-installed it, but this did not help. How can I stop this doubling of saved files? and how can I delete the ones that are now fixed to my desktop? can you lease help?

You said, ''Would like to sort this one out...any clues?''
Maybe something here will help:

    Yes, that is correct, you can't, at least not without backing it up first. You will find some useful information here: http://www.apple.com/support/ipad/syncing/

    When I am writing an email, I get an alert message that says “The message could not be copied or moved to the drafts folder. Writing to the folder failed. To gain disc space, choose Empty Deleted and choose Compact Folders and try again.”
    If I do that, I get a message saying “There was an error copying to the Sent folder,, retry?”
    If I retry it sends the uncompleted email. All I can do is keep deleting the message and carry on. Then the whole business might repeat itself.

    Because the location for each song in your library is on your hard drive.  If the hard drive isn't there, how can iTunes play it?
    You'll have to move/copy the music from your hard drive to your computer's hard drive.
    Basically, EASIEST way to do all this, if you don't care about your play counts, etc...
    -Delete EVERYTHING from iTunes, so that your library is now empty.
    -Go to "Advanced" inside of the "Preferences" window, found in the "Edit" drop-down.  You can also access Preferences by pressing Ctrl+, (Press Ctrl and the comma key)
    -Change your iTunes Media Folder Location to something simple, but on your computer. I use C:/iTunes.  Make sure "Keep iTunes Media Folder Organized" and "Copy files to...." are both checked.  You can close Preferences now.
    -Now, drag and drop your music from your hard drive into your iTunes library.  iTunes will automatically add the music to your library, as you would expect, and also creates a copy of each file to place into that iTunes Media Folder you just created.
    Shouldn't have any more problems...

  • How to copy a files spotlight comments for an entire folder and place them in a different file with that same name

    I have the same question in a different discussion but I already marked it as solved because one of the questions was answered. Here's the linke to the other discussion if your interested https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5970421 
    I have movie covers saved as a jpeg for every movie my family and I own. There is about 700 and they each have a comment of the main actors, release dates, and descriptions. This makes it easy to find what to watch.Is there an applescript, automator, program I can download,  or program code supported in xcode that will do the following set of inscructions?
    Take the name of the picture file and spotlight comment, copy and paste it to a movie file's comments to a file with the same name but obviously has different extention. For an example
    In a Pictures folder
    Name: Dark Knight, The.jpeg       Comment: (2008) Genre: Action...             <- copy comment
    In a Movie Folder
    Name: Dark Knight, The.m4v       Comment:                                               <- paste
    and do this for all 700 files

    where should I run the code? in the terminal, or an applescript, or should put it in xcode and run it from there or the terminal.
    What MrHoffman said.
    But if it's easier, you can wrap it in Automator and have Automator ask for the Folders: (Test on a sample of your files before running on all 700 files)
    (do you really own 700 movies??)
    The Workflow is:
    Put this in the Run Shell Script Action (and pass input as arguments":
    PicDir=$1
    MovDir=$2
    for f in $PicDir/*
    do
         if [ ! -d "$f" -a "${f##*.}" = "jpeg" ]; then
              comment=$(mdls -raw -name kMDItemFinderComment "$f")
              if [[ $comment != "(null)" ]]; then
                   picname=${f##*/}
                   movname=${picname%.*}.m4v
                   if [[ -e "$MovDir"/$movname ]]; then
    osascript <<-EOF
    tell application "Finder"
    set comment of file (POSIX file "$MovDir/$movname") to  "$comment"
    end tell
    EOF
                   fi
              fi
         fi
    done
    (BTW, I know that this is a bit of sloppy scripting (wraping an osascript in a Bash Script wrapped in Automator, but it does what you need)

  • Adobe encore the software that's used to decode the media is not available on this system. installing the correct decoders for the file you are working with may help correct the problem

    Hi,
      I got this message after importing about ten or so H.264 files that I encoded from Adobe media encoder.  "adobe encore the software that's used to decode the media is not available on this system. installing the correct decoders for the file you are working with may help correct the problem."
    The files we're shot with HD cameras.  Edited in Premiere Pro CS3.  I installed the update 3.0.1 with still the same error.
    I also tried a brand new project and after about ten or so files being imported into a timeline, the system crash.  I tried this twice....
        Thanks in Advance

    Hi Hunt,
           Here is the skinny.  A window base PC.  footage shot with HD sony HD cameras,  Project imported to Premiere CS3.  Once completed sent file to Adobe media encoder and render them as H.264 widescreen high Quality.  Imported them to Adobe Encore CS3.  After about ten files or so.  I got the error message.  Did all the basic trouble shoot like restarting the computer, got latest patch.  Even build a new test project with the same problem.
        Something else I read in the forums, is the encore will transcoded the project to Mpeg 2 anyway, after looking at my project I realized those few files were indeed untranscoded.  So it will be a double compression and I dont want that.  So, my new question is, what is H.264 good for ?????????? I was research that Mpeg 2 is a faster render but H.264 is a slower render but better quality.....
       what do you think ????

  • I have just upgraded to Mountain Lion and my signatures for my Mail is not showing up. I have the signatures inthe preference panes and selected for the email address, but when I make a new message, the signature shows as none and doesn't give me a choice

    I have just upgraded to Mountain Lion and my signatures for my Mail are not showing up. I have the signatures inthe preference panes and selected for the email address, but when I make a new message, the signature shows as none and doesn't give me a choice. Yesterday, the signatures were stacking instead of switching to the one I wanted to choose.

    I had this and fixed it.
    I had upgraded to Mountain Lion and my signatures in Mail were fine. But then about a week later, I got a new computer and used Migration Assistant to copy my stuff to the new machine. Upon opening Mail, I had all the correct Signature information in the Preferences>Signatures window, but nothing worked.
    After lots of hunting, I found the Signature Folder. It's in:
    Yourusername>Library>Mail>V2>MailData>Signatures
    Looking at my previous setup (which works) I saw in that folder two types of files: .webarchive and .siganture
    Looking in my new machine's Signature folder, I saw only the .webarchive folders, not the .signature folders
    Since this was literally a clone of my previous setup to a new machine, here's what I did:
    1. Quit Mail
    2. In Problem machine, go to
    Yourusername>Library>Mail>V2>MailData>Signatures
    3. Move the Signatures folder someplace safe, but out of the MailData folder
    4. Get the Signatures Folder from the working install (like a backup) and copy it to the MailData folder on the problematic machine
    5. Start Mail on the problem machine
    This worked for me. I don't know why Migration Assistant didn't copy the full signature folder, but this fixed it. It worked perfectly partly because I had just backed up with Carbon Copy Cloner and the very next day set up the new machine. I don't know where Lion or earlier versions of mail stored signatures, but the absence of the .signature filetype seems to be the problem.
    Hope this helps

  • Importing files with same name but different extensions

    Hope I will be clear enough.
    Lets say that instead of sending a file from Lightroom to an external editor, I open it directly in Photoshop.
    When I'm done, I save the edited photo using the same name but in a different file format : IMG_1333.cr2 > IMG_1333.psd or IMG_1333.tif, and selecting the same folder location.
    Then, I come back into Lightroom and synchronise the folder.
    Why is the knew version of the picture not showing up beside the original file, despite the different extension ?
    I notice that the different extensions ( .psd or .tif ) are recorded in the sidecar files field in the Metadata panel.
    Of course, everything works fine if the file name is modified ( or just by selecting the "copy" option in Photoshop's "save as" dialog box ). Lightroom synchronise dialog shows the new photo to import.
    So, why is Lightroom not making a difference between files with the same name but different format extensions ?
    Thanks for any hint :-)
    Gilles.

    Gilles-
    I think your problem is likely that you have the option to stack the copy with the original turned on. First, right-click on one of these photos and go to the stacking menu. If Unstack is not grayed out then you have a stack -- select Unstack to reveal all copies.
    To change the automatic stacking of edited copies from Photoshop, when you next choose to edit a file, in the bottom left corner of the dialog is the check box for unstacking. Clear it, and that choice should "stick" until you change it again.
    Hope this helps!

  • My mac disk is full and i cant transfer files from Mac to USB. saying the format is not good, how can i change the format and what happened to the files i have on USB?

    my mac disk is full and i cant transfer files from Mac to USB. saying the format is not good, how can i change the format and what happened to the files i have on USB?

    Once something similar happened to me. The external drives I had set up for FCP to use for some reason were not mounted, and FCP put all its render files on the main drive and I couldn't find them anywhere.
    Go to applications, and control-click (and hold down) on your FCP icon; you should get a pop up menu that says "show package contents". Select that, select the "contents" folder, then the "mac OS" folder. See if your quicktime file is in there, or if you've got render files in the "render" folder or audio render files in the "audio render" folder that don't belong there.
    That's where FCP sticks stuff when your documents FCP project folders are not available or when external drives you've selected aren't available.

    Ok, you should generally only get this when you are converting your ID to an iTS account for the first time.
    Sign into iTunes with your Apple ID and you should get this.... IRC once you agree or accept it's now an iTS account and you wont get that again.

    Hi,
    Use <b>GUI_UPLOAD</b> to upload a text file from a shared folder.
    Use <b>GUI_DOWNLOAD</b> to download data in a file on the presentation server or use <b>OPEN DATASET, TRANSFER</b> and <b>CLOSE DATASET</b> statements to download data to the application server.
    Now, I hope the code for data fetching, if required, is already present in the report.

  • I have a problem when syncing my iphoto library to my iphone 3gs. There apprears to be more than 40  events with the same names but containing only 2-5 pics in my itunes sidebar when in fact I only have around 10 events on iphoto. How do I fix this?

    This has never happened before, and I've tried deleting all photos off my phone then syncing them all instead of specific events and nothing. I have around 10 events in my iphoto library but around 3,500 pictures. I have more than enough space on my phone but I only like to sync certain events, so when I go sync them I notice there are over 40 events listed, and all of them have the same name but it seems as though each "event" has like 2 photos.. On my phone all the different events come up as well. This is super annoying, does anyone know how to fix this ?

    I have the exact same problem!
    I have about 25 albums and a total of 8,100 pictures. When i go to iTunes -> "My iphone" -> Pictures, and then check the box to sync choses events the list of events is messed up. The same events shows up like 3-4 times and the events only have a couple of pictures in them.
    Does anyone know what can be causing this? Or what can be done to fix it?

    I keep getting a Networking Error: when i run Software update. i have 10.5.8 and want to upgrade to at least 10.6 or later. i know the network is working perfectly.

    Snow Leopard OS 10.6 is not available via Software Update, it is paid upgrade.
    Start by checking if you can run Snow Leopard:
    Requirements for OS X 10.6 'Snow Leopard'
    http://support.apple.com/kb/SP575
    OS 10.6 Snow Leopard is available for $19.99 from the Apple Store:
    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
    and in the UK:
    http://store.apple.com/uk/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
    but nobody knows for how long it will be available.
    When you have installed it, run Software Update to download and install the latest updates for Snow Leopard.
    To use iCloud you have to upgrade at least to Lion, but some functions are only available in Mountain Lion:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4759
    You can also purchase the code to use to download Lion (Lion requires an Intel-based Mac with a Core 2 Duo, i3, i5, i7 or Xeon processor and 2GB of RAM, running the latest version of Snow Leopard), or you can purchase Mountain Lion from the App Store - if you can run that:
