What are the odd lines on the header bar of Firefox for Mac 10.6.8?

Occasionally, FF gets these odd, jagged lines in the header bar. Hard to explain: https://skitch.com/dancapistan/gtu4g/firefox-lines
The lines seem to be different in shape and color each time.
When I restart FF, the lines go away for a time.

I have Firefox 9.0.1 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I have also had the problem of errors in the Firefox graphic user interface (GUI) that appear as jagged lines and pixels over the title bar, back and forward buttons, over words in the address bar and in the Google search box, and over tabs. If I continue to use Firefox when this happens, Firefox and the Mac OS will freeze within a minute or two. I then have to shut down the computer and restart, as I can not Force Quit Firefox from the Firefox dock icon or from the Apple menu icon at the left of the Mac OS menu bar, which is at the top of the screen. I have not tried the Command + Option + Escape keyboard combination yet to see if this will bring up the Force Quit window.
I have used Firefox for years and never had problems like this before. Firefox 3.6 on Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11 was stable. I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and Firefox 8, which had the same problems as Firefox 9. To make sure that the problem was not an OS upgrade issue, I erased and formatted my hard drive and did a clean install of Snow Leopard, but Firefox 9 is still apparently unstable. I have not noticed similar problems with iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, Pages or Safari, but I do not use these applications as heavily. For a short while, I tried Firefox 3.6 on Snow Leopard, and it seemed to be stable, without the problems of Firefox 8 & 9. If I continue to have problems with Firefox 9, I plan to go back to Firefox 3.6 for a longer period to see if it remains stable.

  • What are the features of Mozilla Firefox for Linux?

    I found an article on the features of Desktop Firefox. Do Linux and Windows have the same features?
    If not, I need to know the features for Linux.

    Firefox for Windows, Mac OSX (10.6+) and Linux (from mozilla.org) are pretty much the same.
    You may find some of the Menu's and KB shortcuts being a little different on the three OS's due to their OS Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) being followed. Also may have some little appearance differences.
    For example Tools->Options on Windows is Firefox->Preferences on Mac and Edit->Preferences on Linux.
    Adobe is kind of screwing Linux users with Flash by only supporting Flash 11.2 with security updates.

  • What are the best optimization & cleaning tools for Mac OS X?

    I found a great app called MacKeeper, but it cost $500!?! I have OnyX, but it not so good because it just clean your mac and has given my mac some problems.
    I really want to fix and clean my mac and give it top performance, because my windows 7 is now faster than my mac in boot camp, and my mac boot up speed is so slow, it actually slower than my 7 years old windows xp laptop!

    It takes 3 minutes to get into the log-in screen. My apps bounces for 20 secs.
    Then you need to begin reading the [Mac OS X speed FAQ|http://www.index-site.com/Macosxspeed.html] that you were referred to. It does sound like you're having a performance problem, but using a "cleaning tool" to do things like clear caches, run the periodic scripts, etc without a specific reason for doing so is not the right solution. You could just as easily break things worse without solving any problems. It's like firing multiple shotgun blasts into your walls, while blindfolded, to try to solve a mouse problem.
    When I scanned my computer with AppKeeper, it said 1700 useless junk files and 12 performance problems.
    Without knowing what those are, we have no idea how legitimate those claims may be. Some AV software will label "tracking cookies" as a danger when they are not. As sad as it is, some software companies will play up "problems" in order to sell software to solve those "problems."

  • What are the Corresponding fields in CRM for sales order in ECC

    HI! Experts,
    While creating a standard sales order in CRM I want to poulate these fields in ECC Sales order, these fields are
    VBKD-BSARK - Purchase order type
    VBAK-BNAME - Name: user ordered
    VBKD-IHREZ - Web Confirmation Number
    VBAK-TELF1 - Telephone number
    Or the other way round I want to know what are the corresponding fields in CRM for these fields so that when I pass the data in crmd_order in those fields it gets populated in the above mentioned fields.
    Thanks and Regards
    Mayank

    Mayank,
    May I suggest you to create an Order in R/3 with these fields and check that back in CRM. This is not as easy as it may sound. It is possible that some of these fields are "determined" by the system - for example the "Sold-To"'s first telephone number maintained in VBAK-TELF1. So, though it becomes a part of the Order header in R/3, CRM, generally doesn't duplicate them in the transaction but allows to refer back to the master data from the transaction!
    Check the following fields in CRM and see if you find the data you require.
    VBKD-BSARK - Purchase order type There is a field in CRM that "holds" this value. ACTIVITY CATEGORY. This can be found in the ACTIVITY_H set of the transaction. Filed name CATEGORY. Problem with this is, - "Category Type" of a CRM Activity to be mapped to PO type? Didn't workout good for us since the master data for both vary widely. So, we used custom Header Extension data for this (EEWB). So, you have to work
    VBAK-BNAME - Name: user ordered Is usually CREATED_BY in the CRM Order Header (CRMD_ORDERADM_H). But this fills up the VBAK_ERNAM bit not the BNAME.See the next item, that may give a clue if this is related to the next item.
    VBAK-TELF1 - Telephone number is usually "determined". Usually the Sold-To's first telephone number maintained in the Business Partner "Communication" section for that Sold-To.
    VBKD-IHREZ - Web Confirmation Number Actually it is Customer's or vendor's internal reference as per standard use. Looks like your customer is using it for custom purposes. Well, if you maintain the relationship  "Is Correwspondence Recipient for" with the Sold-To partner in CRM, and maintain the details of this Person, then this will be transferred to R/3.
    Hint: Once you have the R/3 order in CRM, try using the Report program (SE38)  CRM_ORDER_READ in CRM. This is a good tool to "dissect and see" and order in CRM. The program needs only the Transaction Number as the input.

  • What are the 3-bit field choices for Hw_Arm_Sel in PCI-6601

    Hi,
    I am programming our own driver to operate the PCI-6601. For our application we need hardware arm option. I know it is possible to use 2 counters for that, but NI-TIO should support also hw_arm. Although it is not explained in the registry document at all, after some tedious check in the DDK examples I found that this bits are located in the Gi counting mode register. I know the position of the HW_enable as well as the position of the 3 bits for pin sellect options. What I do not know is What are the 3-bit field choices for Hw_Arm_Sel . I contacted NI support but got no support. How can NI sell boards and when a customer who is not using LAbview or Measurement Studio or DDK, but is implementing his own driver is then so arrogantly turned down from NI? Also, how can NI publish just part of the registers the board support, and when a customer contacs and asks for some registers get not at all support? I can not foretell the missing registers, and it is pretty unprofessional to document just partly the registers of 660x devices. And on request you got nothing.
    I hope someone from the community know about this Hw_Arm_Sel 3 pin options. Otherwise, there is just an option of error and trial. Or simply throw the board in the garbage.
    Dr. Kirco Arsov
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    Hi Kirco,
    I have some more information for you :-)
    I haven't been able to speak to the developer who is the most familiar with TIO programming since he's out of the office, but I have come across his notes from when he was writing support for the DAQmx driver.
    As I described earlier, the HW_Arm_Sel bits don't select a connector I/O pin, but an internal trigger signal. There are seven internal trigger lines, and the HW_Arm_Sel bits map directly to the internal trigger signal: 0b000 - 0b111 map to 0d0 - 0d7. In order to route an I/O pin to an internal trigger, you must also write to a few more registers.
    From what I've read, there are two more register families that need to be programmed: TG_x_LevelEdgeReg and TG_x_CombinationReg, where x is the internal trigger number. In your case, you only need one pin from the I/O connector to be your arm start trigger, so TG_0_LevelEdgeReg and TB_0_CombinationReg will suffice for your application.
    TB_0_LevelEdgeReg :: Offset 0x660
    TG_0_LevelEdgeReg is only 8 bits wide, and maps as follows:
    7..6: EdgeMode
    5..0: LESel
    LESel selects the I/O connector pin to use as the source for the internal trigger signal. 0d0 - 0d39 will select the I/O pin of the same number. NB: behavior for TG_x_LevelEdgeReg is more limited for triggers 1-7, and only a small subset of the I/O pins can be selected for those trigger signals. Trigger 0 can use any I/O pin. Setting these bits to 0d63 forces the trigger source low, and can be used as a way to 'unroute' it when you're finished with your program.
    EdgeMode determines whether the TIO will detect an edge of the incoming signal, or just pass the signal level straight through. When detecting edges, it will latch the signal and generate a single TIMEBASE3 pulse instead. 0b00 sets level mode; 0b01 sets rising edge; 0b10 sets falling edge; 0b11 sets either edge.
    TG_0_CombinationReg :: Offset 0x6A0
    TG_0_CombinationReg is 32 bits wide, and has three fields of interest:
    19..16: CombFunction
    5..4: CombTypeB
    1..0: CombTypeA
    CombTypeA controls which trigger subsystem to use as the source for the trigger signal. Since you're coming from an I/O pin and using the edge/level subsystem, you must set these bits to 0b01.
    CombTypeB is similar to CombTypeA, and although you won't be using trigger B, set it to 0b01 to be safe.
    CombFunction performs a simple logic function on A and B. Since you're only using a single I/O connector, you only need the A output, so set these bits to 0b1100.
    All of the other bits should be set to 0b0.
    Unfortunately, I'm unable to test these statements since my test machine is currently being used for another research project. Please let me know what happens if you decide to test.

  • What are the best imovie, mpeg4 settings for making dvds?

    What are the best imovie, mpeg4 settings for making dvds?

    • iMovie'08 to 11
    - Share to Media Browser - AND as Large (or Medium) - HD or other resolutions degrades the final result
    iMovie'08 to 11 are not the tools of choise if quality is important as they all degrade the picture by discarding every second line when going from, Event's to Project's and this can not be mended.
    iMovie HD6 and FinalCut delivers 100% of what any DVD-Authoring program needs.
    • DVD is as standard MAX - intrelaced SD-Video - and can not be any better than this
    • iDVD does only care about TIME / Duration as
    iDVD 08, 09 & 11 has three levels of qualities. (version 7.0.1, 7,0.4 & 7.1.1) and iDVD 6 has the two last ones
    • Professional Quality
    (movies + menus up to 120 min.) - BEST (but not always for short movies e.g. up to 45 minutes in total)
    • Best Performances
    (movies + menus less than 60 min.) - High quality on final DVD (Can be best for short movies)
    • High Quality (in iDVD08 or 09) / Best Quality (in iDVD6)
    (movies + menus up to 120 min.) - slightly lower quality than above
    Menu can take 15 minutes or even more - I use a very simple one with no audio or animation like ”Brushed Metal” in old Themes.
    About double on DL DVDs.
    • iDVD Does Region = Zero (to be played everywhere)
    • Frame rate - DVD can be in two types PAL (25fps) and NTSC (29.97fps)
    If Your material is 30fps then keep to NTSC (29.97fps), if 25fps keep to PAL.
    One can feed iDVD the other frame rate - BUT RESULTING DVD WILL BE BAD
    I use JES_Deinterlacer (free on Internet) to convert all material to the same and final frame rate
    • NTSC - US etc
    • PAL - EU etc

  • What are the best settings to use for the newest AirPort Extreme (AC wifi) with my optimum online service provider?

    I have the current generation of the AirPort Extreme and a handful of devices that utilize the new 5Ghz A/C frequency. My internet speeds were blazing fast when I had first set it up but lately it has been lagging terribly. I was told that changing my dhcp did help, which it did it seems like it might be back to its normal speeds but I just want to know what are the best settings to configure for the airport so that I can get the most out of my service on all my devices? I'm using a CAT 6 cable which does help, I have a guest wifi setup with a wifi password which I understand will slow it down a little. Can anyone just point me in the right direction or just give me a step by step guide on what settings to configure? Should I really consider turning off the guest network?

    I am assuming that you are looking to configure your network to provide the highest level of bandwidth possible for your network clients. If that is the case, the following are a few things to consider:
    The Internet modem should support Gigabit Ethernet. That is the Ethernet connection between the modem and your 802.11ac AirPort Extreme should be Gigabit Ethernet.
    Use CAT-5e or CAT-6 Ethernet cables between all wired connections.
    Only expect 802.11ac performance with 802.11ac clients in the same room as the base station.
    Eliminate or significantly reduce any forms of Wi-Fi interference on both the 2.4 & 5 GHz bands.
    When streaming, especially HD video on your local network, use wired connections between the host and player devices when possible.
    Other than the above suggestions there are no "magic" settings that you can make on your AirPort. Note: The Guest network shares the same bandwidth as the "main" network. Unless you have a network goal to provide this type of network, it is best left disabled.

    What are the best dimensions to allow for iPad 3 Retina for full-page landscape images?
    I read an article and cannot find it that said something about trying to make it 2million pixels and JPG to keep it small, but what exactly should the dimensions be that I ultimately import?  Is there some kind of a "density" setting I have to use, as well, when exporting from Photoshop, for example?

    See Optimizing performance in your iBooks Author books
    Density is discussed by Apple in this context as 'dpi'...

    Advisable is irrelevant...  It is not possible.  There has not been a version of IE for Mac for a long time.  You will have to load Windows on your Mac in order to run IE, or try making your browser mimic IE.  (In Safari, go to Safari -> Preferences, click the Advanced tab and check the box to show the Develop menu.  Then, in that menu, choose User Agent -> Internet Explorer x.0.)  Note that doing that will not work if the site relies on some weird non-standard feature of IE that no other browser on the planet has.
