  • The window that opens when I click on the Time Machine icon is Finder (devices) and when I close this Time Machine also closes.

    You will need to be much more specific about what you problem is. That is how TM works. That is how you find things to restore from TM, by using a Finder window so that you can browse through the Mac's hierarchy of folders and files.
    Why are you double posting this?

  • Firefox will suddenly not open when I click the icon, even though I have used Firefox on this computer for several months with no issues.

    I have always used Firefox with no problems but suddenly the window will not even open when I click the Firefox icon. No error windows appear either.

    Hi pkuhne-
    I am not sure why your Firefox stopped working all of a sudden. I would recommend uninstalling and then re-installing Firefox.
    1) Get new download:
    2) Uninstall your current Firefox version.
    3) Do not remove personal data when you uninstall the current version.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    4) 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 profile data are stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder and won't be affected by a reinstall, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.
    Hope that helps

  • Firefox doesn't always open when I click the icon

    I am running Windows 7, and was running Firefox 6. I just upgraded to 8. Regardless of the version of Firefox, however, there are times when I click the Firefox icon to start it (or try to open from a program list), yet a window doesn't open.
    Judging by the task manager, it's actually running - there is just no visible window. Sometimes I can get it to start by "opening" it and ending the process in the task manager a few times, but sometimes I have to completely restart my computer to get Firefox to actually open.

    Try to close Firefox via "File > Exit" if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the title bar.

  • Help! I am unable to even download Firefox. The "run" window never opens when I click the download link.

    I am currently using Internet Explorer Version 8.0.6001.18702IC on my PC desktop, and want to switch to Firefox. I have clicked the download link in several places with no result at all

    Don't try to run the Firefox installer directly, but save the file to the desktop and start the installation with a double-click.<br />
    You may need to disable your anti-virus software temporarily if you still have problems.

  • I download updates cc cleaner ad aware which I am told have been downloaded but the Firefox Download screen is blank!!

    CNET tell me which programs on my PC need updating ie CC Cleaner. Ad Aware and similar. So I download the updates and get a message at the bottom of the screen that tells me the updates have been downloaded.
    But the screen Firefox Downloads is blank. There is no list of the downloads so I cannot go any further ie instal them!!

    '''Try Firefox Safe Mode''' to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.
    ''(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)''
    * You can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the '''Shift''' key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
    * Or open the Help menu and click on the '''Restart with Add-ons Disabled...''' menu item while Firefox is running.
    ''Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode"''
    '''''If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode''''', your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] article for that.
    ''To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.''
    ''When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help other users who have the same problem.''
    Thank you.

  • I want a new window to open when I click the Firefox icon on the taskbar. I don't want to have to right click, then choose "open new window". I have Windows 7.

    I want to be able to open a new browser window when I click on the Firefox icon on the taskbar. I don't want to have to right click and select anything. I have windows 7.

    This is a "pinned" icon? Try holding the Shift key when you click it -- that seems to work for me.

  • How to avoid the annoying little window that opens when I go to close a file?

    When I put my cursor near the x of a file tab to close a file, a little window opens over the x and I have to wait for it to dissappear before
    I can click on the x to close the file. The window that opens has the exact same text as the folder tab and seems worse than useless. Is there a way to turn it off?

    It should be real easy to install the latest ATI driver for the latest ATI mobility video card but that hasn't been the case with those with my computer. Computer stuff is never as easy for my as I think it should be. I'm probably and excellent candidate for Apple computers but I'm too cheap and old to switch.
    My computer is Alienware's (Dell bought Alienware a couple of years ago.) latest and biggest, m18x, and it holds two ATI 6970m GPU's. There is a real good forum of users of this computer and many have problems installing video card drivers. That is why I wanted to leave well enough alone but some say the latest drivers perform better in games so I gave it a try. My first try was installing Dells recommended latest driver for the video cards in my computer. They installed but my computer refused to use them and it hinted that it didn't like the signature. I tried for a while to get it to work but gave up and went to a site recommended by one of the users in the forum and it downloaded fine and is working.

  • Want to stop multiple spam windows from opening when I click on a link

    All of a sudden when I click on a link all sorts of spam windows open up. I have "Pop-Up" windows set to off....but they still open...also all of a sudden pages on line will have tons of words highlighted as hough they are links.... and when I click on them thinking it is a link it is another annoying pop up window. I have checked my "plug ins" and "add ons" and there is nothing there that I can find. I am using Windows 7 and this problem just began this week. I ran a McAfee scan and found no virus......can you help???

    Really? It's not there? Huh, that's odd...
    Your System Details show that there is one. Is this the same Firefox installation that's having problems or did you post it from another computer with Firefox installed?

    Oh...I see what's happening here. You've been infected with Trovi adware junk. Here's an indication from your System Details
    * browser.startup.homepage:
    You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this adware. Be very careful what you agree to install.<br>
    Adware gets on your computer after you have installed a freeware software (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had bundled into their installation this browser hijacker.
    You can use the below steps to revert back to adware-less Firefox.
    1) <u>Reset Prefs</u>
    *Navigate to '''about:config''' in your Address Bar
    *Press the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button to proceed
    *Search for <b>trovi</b> and reset all prefs that pull up by right clicking > Reset
    *Also search for <b>conduit</b> and reset all prefs to be sure it's gone.
    2) Remove any programs that you don't recognize or remember installing from your Control Panel (Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program)
    3) Remove any extensions that you don't recognize or remember installing from Firefox.
    *<b>Firefox 29 and above:</b>(Press the menu button ([[Image:new fx menu]] > Add-ons > Extensions)
    *<b>Firefox 28 and below:</b>(Go to the orange Firefox button > Add-ons > Extensions)
    4) Download ADW Cleaner to wipe out any remnants of the adware.

  • How do I stop extra instances of my Firefox home page from opening when I click on links?

    Frequently, when I click on a link in an email or on a web page, and Firefox is not yet running, not only does that linked web page open, but also an extra instance of my home page opens. I would like to prevent this from happening.

    I asked the same question on Yahoo! Answers, and I was advised to reinstall Firefox, which I have just done (with version 3.6.8). The problem seems to be solved. Prior to doing this, I attempted to uninstall my previous version, but Control Panel wouldn't let me do this, nor would Windows Explorer allow me to send the whole Mozilla Firefox folder to the Recycle Bin. I went to Plan C, which was to delete all the subfolders in the main folder, followed by the leftover files, and finally empty the Recycle bin. Then I used Internet Explorer to download the newer version of Firefox, and installed it. No more extra home pages, so far.

    To re-install iPhoto
    1. Put the in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
    2. Download it from the App Store to reinstall It's on your Purchases List* there.
    For older versions that have been installed from Disk you'll need these additional steps:
    2a: On 10.5:  Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.
    2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows:  In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type
    2c: on 10.7 or later they're at
    A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.
    3. Re-install.
    If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
    If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.
    *Sometimes iPhoto is not visible on the Purchases List. it may be hidden. See this article for details on how to unhide it.
    One question often asked: Will I lose my Photos if I reinstall?
    iPhoto the application and the iPhoto Library are two different parts of the iPhoto programme. So, reinstalling the app should not affect the Library. BUT you should always have a back up before doing this kind of work. Always.

  • Dvd disc tray wont open with the side button, will only open when I click eject

    I have a new HP g7-2270us laptop.  The dvd disc tray will only open if I do it internally with the eject dvd file.  Is the dvd drive bead or is there a simple fix to make the button on the disc drive open it up????????

    My best advice, if you're still within the time frame allowed, would be to return the machine to the retailer you purchased it from and get a replacement machine.
    If you're outside of the time this is possible, you contact HP and arrange to have the notebook repaired under warranty.
    If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
    If you are in another part of the world, start Here.

  • Yahoo mail in FF is slow to load (if it loads at all) and the e-mails do not open when you click on them. I do not have this problem in Chrome or IE

    When I click on Yahoo in FF, the page is slow to load. When it does, the e-mail is even slower to load. When it does load and I click on an e-mail, the e-mail does not open. Any suggestions? If I delete FF and reinstall it, will I lose all the information in FF (e.g. Book marks or preferences)? Thanks in advance for your help.

    HI afirst,
    Just in case [[Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles]], but before that you can clear the cache for a specific site in the about:permissions page.
    Select Yahoo mail on this page and forget the site. This will remove cookies and active logins for mail. Please then restart Firefox and relogin to Yahoo mail.
    If there are any other questions, happy to help.
