There is a delay when I hit the spacebar, and it only happens in Firefox. Is there a way to fix this?

When I type anything in Firefox like an e-mail, spaces do not register immediately when I hit the spacebar, and it slows down my typing tremendously. I just installed Firefox today, and I had never had this problem before. I tested it in both my word processing program and in Internet Explorer, and there was no delay in either program, so I know it has to be a glitch with the FF program. Is there a way to fix this?
Also, sometimes when I would tap the mousepad to click a link, the screen would just scroll/jump to the bottom of that page instead of going to the next page. It did this on every attempt to click the link (I was reading a message in e-mail and was trying to go to my inbox, but it wouldn't let me).

Okay, I found the solution. I simply restarted my computer, and the problem has gone away...so far.

  • There's a delay when I hit the record button

    I currently have the MBox2 Factory & I download the drivers for the MBox & I just recently purchased Logic Express. When I hit the record button, I get the pinwheel for roughly 60 seconds before it will start recording anything. Does anyone know why this is happening?? Any feedback would be awesome!! Thanks
    I will be purchasing a Motu 8 pre in the near future & I hope the same thing doesn't happen.

    Open up Disk Utility in your Utilities folder, select the WD drive and it will tell how how it's formatted - at the bottom of that window.
    If it's FAT32 or NTFS, quite Disk Utility, *copy all your files on that disk* to your internal drive (or burn a DVD), reformat it to Mac OS Extended Journaling OFF (these options are available when you choose to reformat) and then restore the contents to your external.
    Make sure (at least 3 times) you have copies before you do any reformatting!

    I've had MS Office:mac 2011 on my imac for around 18 months now.  Outlook has just disappeared and when I find the file and open it it tells me that there is a problem and I may need to re-install it.  I've just done this using the installation disc which, then said the installation had been successful.
    Outlook is still not working.  Can anyone please advise me on what to do next.

    Remove MS Office 2011 completely (here are instructions) and reinstall it.
    It's not a simple or fast process but it is important to follow all of the steps in order to get all the files that Office scatters around. This will not affect your data files, only MS Office and its preferences.

  • Color quits when I hit the spacebar

    I don't understand why Color quits when I hit the spacebar to play the clip. Has anyone had this issue, and if so do you know how to fix the problem? Any help would be appreciated.

    It likely has something to do with your system performance -- either the Quicktime codec requires too much processing, or your bitrate throughput (disk/processing/GPU performance) is not up to required speeds.

  • Why is there a clicking sound when I close the cover and enter sleep mode?

    why is there a clicking sound when I close the cover and enter sleep mode?

    Hi katesvca,
    I too have an iPad smart cover, and all that clicking sound is is basically the standard lock sound for iOS. The Smart cover is equipped with magnets inside, and the iPad is also equipped with magnets, and when those magnets are closed together the iPad goes to sleep.
    I hope this answers your question.

    hello, normally such issues are caused by a firewall/security software which doesn't recognize & therefore blocks new firefox versions. please remove all program rules for firefox from your firewall and let it detect the new version of the browser again.

  • When uploading videos to iWeb, the video screen gets cut off at the top. It only happens in Firefox, but not in Safari.

    When uploading videos to iWeb, the video screen gets cut off at the top. It only happens in Firefox, but not in Safari. Has anybody else had this problem?

    I'm using pure HTML5 for mobile websites although you need to provide an OGG file for Firefox. See the movie page on this site...
    http://mobile.ezmacwebdesign.com/
    If you don't have an iPhone, grab the browser handle and drag it to the left to reduce the width to see how it responds to mobile devices' fixed width browsers .
    This will play in all modern browsers and on mobile devices. You can use QuickTime Pro for the OGG or OGV conversion or get the freeware Miro Video Converter...
    http://www.iwebformusicians.com/Website-Movie-Video/Easy-Movie-Player.html
    If you only want to upload an MP4, you can use a flash fallback player and this will cover Firefox and those geriatrics that still use older versions of Internet Explorer....
    http://www.iwebformusicians.com/Website-Movie-Video/Flow-Player.html
    http://www.iwebformusicians.com/Website-Movie-Video/Fallback-To-Flash.html
    http://www.iwebformusicians.com/Website-Movie-Video/JW-Media-Player.html
    If you use any of the four fallback players above, take advantage of the fact that you can add a poster image and stop the video file from preloading. This makes for a faster page download time.
    You can also achieve this using HTML5 by adding preload="none" and poster="URL to the poster image" into the code shown on this page...

  • I use Final Cut Pro X to make YouTube videos.  The sound is great when I watch the videos on certain computers, but muffled on others.  How do I fix this?

    I use Final Cut Pro X to make YouTube videos.  The sound is great when I watch the videos on certain computers, but muffled on others.  How do I fix this?

    You don't. You can't control how other computers or browsers play back the footage.  The best you can do is export a master file that plays great on your computer.  What youTube does with it, or how other computers play it back is out of your hands.
    Just like me with broadcast TV shows.  I deliver the most pristine version I can to the network. But then they convert it to a digital file that they then beam out to cable and satellite providers, who then compress it again to play on their systems. And then it arrives at grandma's house and plays on her TV. I have no control how my grandma receives the signal, nor how her TV is set up.  Unless I am nice and tweak things when I go visit. But I can't do this at every house that might want to watch my show.

    Hello Helena.
    You may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

    After loading Maverick iTunes will not launch.  I get an error code: -45054.  I am the administrator and have no groups or guests.  Sharing options don't fix this.  Also Fetch will not launch, I get error code: SSL error 9807.  These worked perfectly before installing Maverick.  Also everything that loads, all programs, take twice as long to load.  I have MacKeeper and have cleaned and discarded all the garbage. 

    Remove "MacKeeper" as follows. First, back up all data.
    "MacKeeper" is a scam with only one useful feature: it deletes itself.
    Note: These instructions apply to the version of the product that I downloaded and tested in early 2012. I can't be sure that they apply to other versions.
    If you have incompletely removed MacKeeper—for example, by dragging the application to the Trash and emptying—then you'll have to reinstall it and start over.
    IMPORTANT: "MacKeeper" has what the developer calls an “encryption” feature. In my tests, I didn't try to verify what this feature really does. If you used it to “encrypt” any of your files, “decrypt” them before you uninstall, or (preferably) restore the files from backups made before they were “encrypted.” As the developer is not trustworthy, you should assume that the "decrypted" files are corrupt unless proven otherwise.
    In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Applications
    from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-A. The "MacKeeper" application is in the folder that opens. Quit it if it's running, then drag it to the Trash. You'll be prompted for your login password. Click the Uninstall MacKeeper button in the dialog that appears. All the functional components of the software will be deleted. Reboot.
    ☞ Quit MacKeeper before dragging it to the Trash.
    ☞ Don't empty the Trash. Let MacKeeper delete itself.
    ☞ Don't try to drag the MacKeeper Dock icon to the Trash.

  • When I go to Google Books the language changes to either Chinese or Japanese. This only happens in Firefox. Any suggestions on a fix?

    Google Books changes languages even though my location is set to the US. It only happens in Google Books, nowhere else. How can I get the language back in English?

    Install, update, and run these programs in this order. They are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have. <br />'''''(Not all programs detect the same Malware.)'''''

  • There is a delay when i move the slider to the right

    for whatever reason when i move the silder to unlock my ipod there is a delay before it unlocks. just noticed this behavior this morning and it did not do this before.

    If you have iOS 5 that is normal.  Powering off and then back on helps a little for a while. 

  • When I press the letter l or m, a dollar sign appears. How do I fix this?

    Hi and Welcome to the Community!
    Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness shows up, the first thing to try is a proper reboot:With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes.See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.
    Good luck!

    I appreciate the reply Bob. Maybe you missed the part where I said I can't see the apple logo because as soon as I press the buttons, the screen flashes for just a second then goes DARK. I do know how to reset it and 15 to 30 seconds is just a few seconds to me. The reset doesn't fix it. Thank you though. I'm wondering if it's just a short or maybe the lcd is going bad. Is there any way to test this other than taking it apart, reseating cables or replacing parts?

    My phone randomly doesn't ring when people call and not sound the text alert. I checked all the settings and them seem to be correct. Sometimes it rings, many times it doesn't. I have missed several calls. Same with texts. Anyone know how to fix this?

    No ringer sound
    Go to Settings > Sounds > Ringtone and select a ringtone. Does the device ring? (YES: Issue resolved) (NO: Go to step 2)
    Go to Settings> General> Reset> Erase All Content and Settings. Warning: This will delete all user data on the device. Verify that you have a backup before proceeding. Go to Settings > Sounds > Ringtone and select a ringtone. Does the device ring? (YES: Issue resolved) (NO: Go to step 3)

  • My iPod touch 4th gen iOS5.1.1 can't be recognised by my computer and I have tried different cables and usb ports but nothing has worked. The iPod is brand new and was only opened today. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    I have just today recieved a brand new iPod Touch 4th generation iPod with the latest update. Everything else on the ipod is working and my computer is able to read the camera fine, but iTunes cannot recognise it - even after restarting and trying different USB ports and cables.  There is nothing at all coming up on the device list and iTunes is working as it would if I had no iPod plugged in. This is my first iPod on this computer and I have already tried redownloading iTunes. My computer is a windows XP computer. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this problem?

    Since this is an XP machine, which version of iTunes do you have installed?  Is it the latest version?
    Have you tried starting iTunes, attach the USB end of the cable, then while holding the home button on the iPod connect the 30-pin connector end of the cable to the iPod...that is the recovery mode but also should make iTunes see the iPod.
    If that doesn't work you may need to take the iPod back and have it tested by the genius bar techs to make sure the connector is not bad.
