Back up all data.
Triple-click the line of text below to select it, the copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C):
/Library/Internet Plug-ins
In the Finder, select
Go ▹ Go to Folder
from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-G. Paste (command-V) into the text box that opens, then press return.
From the folder that opens, remove any items that have the letters “PDF” in the name. You may be prompted for your login password. Then quit and relaunch Safari, and test.
I've seen an unconfirmed report that the "Silverlight" web plugin distributed by Microsoft can also interfere with PDF display in Safari, so you might need to remove it as well, if applicable.
If you still have the issue, repeat with this line:
~/Library/Internet Plug-ins
If you don’t like the results of this procedure, restore the items from the backup you made before you started. Relaunch Safari again.

  • Why can't I open a FCE project file that I have saved? (It now says ZERO kb

    Hello...
    I have just started working on a project in Final Cut Express - I render, save, and close out of FCE - but, when I go back to FCE, the project I was working on does not open.
    Why can't I open a project file that I have saved?
    Here was my process in a nutshell:
    ~ When I opened FCE, I went the System Preferences and set the Scratch Disks to a folder on my external hard drive.
    ~Then, I went to File - New Project - worked on the project for a while (including creating bins, importing images and video, and creating a sequence.
    ~I saved the project file to the same folder that I set my Scratch Disks to.
    as often throughout this process.)
    ~When I was done, I saved again andd closed FCE.
    ~Then, soon after, I opened FCE again and my project did not open automatically.
    ~So, I clicked File - Open Recent - browsed to and chose the project file name and FCE gave me a "Unable to open file" message.
    ~When I check to see if the project file actually saved to my external hard drive, the name appears, but it says the file size is ZERO kb.
    I have done this twice with the same unfortunate result. What am I doing wrong? I have worked on FCE on this same computer before, setting the Scratch Disks the same way, and I did not have this problem.
    Please help. Thank you so much for your feedback.

    Are you sure you are trying to open the project file you actually saved ?
    Try using Spotlight to search for your project file name. I might be wrong, but I guess you try to open an empty copy while your real project file (what you saved) is somewhere else in either your startup disk (Documents folder ?) or the external drive. If so do not use Open Recent in FCE but simply double click the "real" project file.

  • How do I access and use a DNG file that I have saved?

    I have saved a NEF file as a DNG file before making any edits in ACR.  Because the ACR edits will be reflected in the NEF file when it is opened in Elements, I wanted to have a file that I could edit that did not reflect the ACR edits.  I can find the DNG file using Windows Explorer, but I can't seem to open it or make use of it.  Any help will be appreciated.

    Jim--I really appreciate your help. However, I'm going to be making a DNG file when I want absolute security. I can't find any way to restore the original NEF image in the ACR program than comes with Elements.

    I have never used Camera Raw with Photoshop Elements.  I haven't used Photoshop Elements since version 2.  But I can tell you that in Photoshop and Bridge it is really quite simple.  Using Bridge, simply right click on the raw image, and in the context menu there is an option enabling you to clear the settings.  It is different from one version to the next, but it is there.  I would think that there would be something similar in the Organizer.  Otherwise, one surefire way to do it would be to simply open the folder that contains the raw images and delete the XMP files for the image(s).
    I just read your message again.  What do you mean when you say you are making a DNG file when you want absolute security?  That doesn't make sense.  Camera Raw never changes your raw image pixels.  The original raw data is always there, always.  The changes made in Camera Raw are stored as metadata and as such can always be deleted.  The same is true with a DNG file, except that metadata is stored inside the DNG file itself.  In Camera Raw under Elements there must be a method in the Organizer similar to what I described above.
    Then you said you couldn't find a way to restore the original NEF image.  Do you mean, literally, the NEF file itself?  Or the look of the original file?  Are you keeping the NEF files?
    I think you are missing the point of using DNG files.  Security in and of itself doesn't seem to me a justification for using DNG.  You need to reconsider your workflow and what you are trying to accomplish.  I'm a little unclear as to what you are trying to do.

  • I have both a PC (work) and my new Macbook Air. I am having issues with opening files that I have saved on my USB Flash Drive. The files are not corrupted because it works on my PC perfectly. Could someone advise how to fix the issue?

    Please help!!!

    Yes, I have the MS Office software for MAC that I bought from the Apple Store.
    This is the Error.
    Excel Cannot Open this File.
    The file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.
    - I created these files on my MAC, but I have worked on it on my PC. But I can't reopen it on my MAC anymore.
    Thanks All for the help.

  • How can I show my mail count that I have saved in my folder when entering my mail box?

    I want to display my overall mail count when I open my mail. Even when I saved them.

    Firefox doesn't do email, it's strictly a web browser.
    If you are using Firefox to access your mail, you are using "web-mail". You need to seek support from your service provider or a forum for that service.
    If your problem is with Mozilla Thunderbird, see this forum for support.

  • When I play songs on my itunes account, they stop after about one minute and itunes goes to the next one.  how do I fix this? These are songs in entire albums that I have purchased.

    when I play songs on my itunes account, they stop after about one minute and itunes goes on to the next song.  This is happening with songs on albums I have purchased direclty through itunes

    Assuming you are in a region where you are allowed to redownload your past music purchases, delete the broken files from your iTunes library, go to the iTunes Store home page, click on the Purchased link from the Quick Links section in the right-hand column, then select Music and Not on this computer. You should find download links for your tracks there.
    If you don't see them straight away it may help to close and restart iTunes.
    While downloading select Downloads in the left-hand column and make sure Allow Simultaneous Downloads is unticked.
    If the problem persists, or that facility is not yet available in your region, contact the iTunes Store support staff through the report a problem links in your account history, or via Contact Support.

  • TS3212 I had an itunes library that had 4 iphones, 1 ipod and our apple tv. That computer broke. I have the harddrive, but when I try and install it into my new computer I am told that I have too many things attached to my acct. Help!

    I cannot turn "off" my connection to the old harddrive, how can I start syncing my iphones, ipod to this new computer?

    Pleae type the exact message.
    I have never heard of such a thing as what you describe.
    You can authorize up to 5 COMPUTERS to one itunes id.
    ONLY computers count.  ipods/iphones/ipads/Apple tvs do not count at all toward this.
    Is this what the message is about?

    How do I change a document that I have saved as a PDF file in Documents........I can open it but can't do anything with it.

    A PDF is really an electronic print of your document & is not intended for future editing. You should always save a copy of the original document in the program that created it & use that for edits. You can then export or print the revised document to PDF, again saving the original.
