Firerfox has stopped opening new windows when I ask it to; why is this and what can be done to regain this option?
== This happened ==
Every time Firefox opened
== not sure - about 2 weeks ago maybe. I recently upgraded to vn 3.6.8

This is a workstation first off, right? 60 lbs or so?:
And you have 10.7.2, if not why not?
Quad core 2.8GHz? 3 x 2GB RAM or more?
Consider new Mac Pro comes with 1TB drive 50% is actually a lot. Most users off load non system stuff to one of the other 4 hard drive bays.
As for youtube I do read and saw threads when Lion came out. Lion does not support Rosetta aka PPC/PowerPC code of any kind, plug-ins, drivers and software all. Check into Lion Community?

    It's strange. The problem apparently resolved itself after I ran TechTool on it. When I clicked on Firefox last night, I had no problem opening a window. Thanks for your help. (As to your previous post, the focus was on Firefox and neither the speed keys nor the menu bar would open a window or tab of allow me to enter a URL to open a window. Strange!)

    If you've activated FileVault, only the users that were authorized to unlock the startup volume will appear in the pre-startup authentication dialog. Once the system has started up, all users will appear in the login dialog.
    To authorize more users after the volume has been encrypted, select the FileVault tab in the Security & Privacy  preference pane. Click the lock icon in the lower left corner and authenticate to unlock the settings, if necessary. Click Enable Users...
    You should only enable users whom you trust implicitly with all data on the system, not just their own data.

  • Missing options of "Enter Private Browsing" "Open new tab" and "Open new window" when right click (right context menu) firefox icon on taskbar

    Hello,
    ''jstavene wrote:''
    can find nothing under the tools menu for private browsing?
    Then it's not the same issue.
    If Firefox is set to '''Never remember history''', then you're in “permanent private browsing” mode, in which case the menu item ''Stop Private Browsing'' will be grayed out. Perhaps that's the case, and you don't find the menu item easy to see?
    * [[Settings for privacy, browsing history and do-not-track]]
    If that's not the case, then menu items can be hidden using the userChrome.css file. Check if it exists, and if it's there, rename it, then restart Firefox.
    * http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css
    In Firefox Nightly (what will become Firefox 20), per-window private browsing has been added, so the menu item under the Tools menu is gone. It's been replaced by New Private Window under the File menu. I don't suppose it's very likely that you're using such a cutting-edge test version of Firefox though.
    If that doesn't solve the problem, since it's a different issue, it would be best if you would ask a new question.

  • Finder Windows always open new windows when clicking subfolders

    since i upgraded to 10.5.6, my finder windows only open new windows when I click on a subfolder. this is no matter what I do with the setting in preferences.
    Also, my finder windows no longer display the side bars with folder icons.
    I searched my library (and whole computer) for the finder preferences .plist file and can't find it. (was going to delete it and re-create it).
    Any ideas here?

    Thanks for the star.
    The default of Finder’s Find will not search that folder, but you can change the pulldown menu just beneath where it says Search, from Kind to System files by selecting Other from that menu and then scroll down the next window and check the box next to System files. You’ll then need to change the pulldown menu next to that to “include” instead of “don’t include.”
    The next time you do a search using Find, that pulldown menu will have System files as an option, if you think you might want to search for something in your home folder.

  • Firefox 4 stops opening new windows after browser window dragged to second display

    Firefox 4 stops opening new windows after browser window dragged to second display. It's weird. Behavior is fine until I drag any browser window to the attached second display, and after this point it stops opening new windows but will still open new tabs in the same window. Restart fixes it until I drag the window back to the second display.
    "Show all bookmarks" stops working too--won't open a new window.
    This is after clean reinstall with total deletion of any Firefox/Mozilla folders and the previously installed app and a restart of the computer.
    Mac OS X 10.6.7
    Firefox 4

    Pretty sure this is either:
    '''Bug 644733'''
    or
    '''Bug 609405'''
    (...and they may be reporting the same thing.)

    LR CC has just been installed but when I click on the desktop icon nothing happens, what can I try?

    Probably is
    You need a minimum of 10GB of free space for normal operations
    You need to address that first - the best soution may be to get an external drive formatted Mac OS extended (journaled) and drag your iPhoto library to it - depress the option key and launch iPhoto and point to that library
    Hopefully that will let you get started - there may be additional repairs needed

  • I have upgraded my MAC OS to 10.6.8.  FCP 5.0 still runs great, but Soundtrack Pro 1.01 opens, but operates at a glacial pace.  It does not functionally operate.  What can be done to remedy this?

    I have upgraded my MAC OS to 10.6.8. 
    Final Cut Pro 5.0 still runs great, but Soundtrack Pro 1.01 opens, but operates at a glacial pace.  It does not functionally operate. 
    What can be done to remedy this?

    Depending on the configuration of the computer hardware and software
    you may need to consider upgrade the RAM by installing more capacity.
    Also, in the same vane, choose to consider upgrade the hard drive to
    one of faster transfer, such as SSD, hybrid, or fusion; if not already at
    least 7200-RPM and not too full of saved content.
    Since no information is given about the model build configuration of Mac
    there may be other suggestions to make it work better. Usually an OS X
    upgrade requires one to look at the hardware resources available to it.
    The OS X works best with more memory: new higher capacity chips.
    This may be possible, and they should be high quality from reputable
    vender who has tested them on Apple in OS X, such as OWC or Crucial.
    Good luck & happy computing!

  • Does not let me add text to my verizon website. This adding text feature works well on internet explorer. I can click on add text, the box opens up but I can not type in the box for some unknown reason. What can be done to correct this problem ...

    does not let me add text to my verizon website. This adding text feature works well on internet explorer. I can click on add text, the box opens up but I can not type in the box for some unknown reason. What can be done to correct this problem ...

    I didn't search before, but "you are not alone" (the thread [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/747424 In Verizon's Sitebuilder for webpages, I can not edit text boxes when using Firefox. I do not have this problem if I use Internet Explorer. Is there a setting I can change in Firefox to correct this problem?] has 18 votes for "I have this problem, too).
    I can only guess about the reason... Firefox works with many websites' "rich text" editors, but ones that haven't been updated for five years may assume that Firefox is the old Netscape browser and use scripting techniques that don't work in Firefox.
    If Verizon has a different "basic" or HTML editor that you can tolerate using, you could try that. It might not be subject to the same incompatibilities.
    If I someday get a Verizon account, I will surely be looking into this further, but for now, it's hard to suggest anything else.

  • I am using a Canon 640 printer and my MPNavigator will not remain open.  It pops open then quickly closes.  I've used it for several years but it just started doing this.  What can I do to fix this problem?

    I am using a Canon 640 printer and my MPNavigator will not remain open.  It pops open then quickly closes.  I've used it for several years but it just started doing this.  What can I do to fix this problem?

    I had a similar problem with a Canon MP800R under Mac OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks.
    In my case, the MP Navigator app in the dock was linking to the wrong file.
    It linked to Applications > MP Navigator 2.1.app > Contents > Resources > MP Navigator.app, but it should link to the "main" app, probably under Applications > MP Navigator 2.1.app.
    After pulling the correct MP Navigator app file to the dock, I can start MP Navigator again by clicking on it in the dock. However, when clicking on it, a second MP Navigator icon will show up in the dock and stay there until the app is closed. By the way, the MP800R scanner also works (although officially not supported by Canon).

  • It looked like a small bug going up and down on my screen then it stopped about 12 o clock a quarter of the way from the top, now it seems to be burned in to the inside of the screen, anyone seen this before?  And what can be done about it,  macbook pro

    I have what looked like a small bug that ran up and down the screen and then sudenly stopped in center upper half of screen and now appears to be burned in to the inside of the screen, anyone had this probelm before and what can be done about it?

    Thanks for the suggestion, the next step was to call Apple, who gave me a claim number, which I discovered you must have to get anything done with them.  They refered me to a Apple store or repair center, after some reseach took it to the Computer Store in Mobile, Alabama and they were excellent.  They took pictures of the screen with bug submitted it to Apple who denied the claim but they kept kicking it up to the next level and finally Apple agreed to sent new cover.  The Computer Store had the cover the next day, they changed it out and now I am bug free.  If your in the area of Mobile Alabama you can feel good about getting help from the Computer Store.  For the two folks that responded to my note, Thank You, good comments and good advice.

    I concur with Meg; having a number of iPads with the Smart Cover, I can say without a doubt that there is no possible way the case could bend the machined-alumnium case of iPad. The force exerted by the magnets is not anywhere near sufficiently powerful; if they were, not only could you not remove the cover, it would be attracting magnetic objects to the iPad. It's not even easy to bend the iPad yourself, much less the weak magnets of the case, which aren't even strong enough so you can pick up the iPad by the case without it coming off.
    Something else has bent your iPad, if it indeed is bent (confirm with a verified straightedge; there's an optical illusion that makes the iPad appear to be bent when looked at edge-on, but it's not actually bent). If it is really bend, have you been carrying it it a backpack, attache case or other item with other objects? Set anything heavy on the iPad? I bet you, or someone, has, or something like that, and in such a case the damage will not be Apple's fault and hence not covered by the warranty.
    But as Meg suggested, you can take it to an Apple Store and discuss the matter with them. The cover, though, again cannot possible have bent the iPad.
    Regards.

    When I clear my history, Firefox clears my browsing and download history even though this checkbox is not checked. It didn't use to do this. What can I do to fix this? I believe the problem started with the last Firefox update.

  • TS3274 When sending a photo by email, the receiver gets the photo upside down.  Why is this and what can I do to correct the error please?

    When sending a photo from my iPad with an email, the receiver gets the photo upside down.  Why is this and what can I do to correct the error please?

    I venture to say the recipient is a Windoze user and if so, state of the art Windoze ignores or doesn't recognize photo orientation data that is included with a photo's EXIF data.
    There are 3rd party photo viewing apps that provide for this but not incorporated with Microsoft software.
