I recently deleted the photos in my iPhoto, and I gather from information given by other Mac users that I can't recover them because I hadn't activated the Time Machine until after the deletion. However, I'd like to know if I can set up the Time Machine for future use. I'd like to send information to my hard drive rather than some outside source. I do have an external hard drive I could use if needed. When I enter the Time Machine, I don't know what to put into the box for place to send info.

Synchs Run Amok? Corrupts Profiles, Setting Access and Synching. Any Available Sync-In-A-Can Solutions?

iMac to MacBook Pro Syncs:

After a synch, target (MacBook Pro) launched in Default (instead of my selected theme) and settings could not be accessed by clicking on any of them). Also, no images would appear in any website. (FF Default all-grey browser is not usable for me because of poor eyesight and the need for more color and contrast in the mix).

Consultant troubleshot all my Extensions on both devices (tossing many extensions and most themes) then synced again. Still no images and prefs still unavailable by clicking on them.

I kept one seemingly safe theme and was able to have both devices stabilize their respective themes and regained access to settings.

We tried to sync once with an added test bookmark.

He got the theme to launch and the images to appear and then we synced .

Boom! Back to square one.

Finally he got both devices to work independently so we banned any syncing. Fine, except that I REQUIRE syncs.

1) Any solutions to the failure to synch the Profiles?

2) Any easy syncing strategies other than don't involve digging into the Library files and manually swapping folders around. It works but too much room for tired eyes at night.

Any decent after-market apps that will do just the Profile synch, both ways?

Many thanks.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/940362]

Several issues with the new update that I need fixed.

  1. The cursor is no longer in the navigation toolbar in a new tab.
  2. Once the cursor is in the navigation toolbar, hitting tab once no longer takes me to the search field to the right.
  3. Firefox refuses to stick as my default browser.

I get a message box saying: "A recommended update is available, but you do not have the system permissions required to install it. Please contact your system administrator, or try again from an account that has permission to install software on this computer."

This is a stand alone personal Macbook, ver. 10.7.5 (as high as I can go).

How and where do I create the system permissions? Is this something I do in the Mac OS? I do well with step-by-step instructions, but obviously am not that savvy when it comes to finding it myself.

Since latest update of Mozilla a few days ago (Mac) I have noticed at least 2 items that I used to use regularly have lost functionality:

1. Used to be able to reorder bookmarks by drag and drop (Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks). No longer able to reorder except manually cut and paste tediously

2. Used to be able to click download arrow in toolbar to see progress of downloads. Click no longer works. Now can only see download progress by (Tools -> Downloads) pop-up menu.

And no, the mouse is working fine, can click on other things and drag and drop photos etc. just fine. Please advise. Thanks!

I'm running OSX and every time I open Firefox, it freezes up. I can't type in the URL area, can't click on bookmarks, and can't select the profile folder. It's completely stuck with no functionality. I tried to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. I tried using Safari and it works fine but I want my Firefox back!

Thank you for your time and consideration :)

Windows Vista. No, I can't change my OS. I didn't used to have this problem. Firefox downloaded a "security update" <-- it was not a spyware, virus, bug, glitch, flaw or related to any other program or operating system. I'm a systems analyst, I know it was Firefox's own security update. Here was the result:

Everything on the internet now had two problems: 1) Every site is now an "Attack Site" including google.com (not results, the main page) same for ebay.com, amazon.com, etc. 2) Everything now had an infinite number of "incorrect certificates"

I would like to disable delete and destroy these "security" features. I never use the machine to do anything that would ever pose a security threat. I would like to have zero security. I say this because I think it's highly unlikely that there is an actual "fix." I don't need "security" for anything. I would just like to sometimes upload files to the internet.

Right now, my machine has no internet. The "feature" that firefox downloaded blocks all sites on the internet on all browsers. And no, it doesn't block the internet. I can still ping servers. The internet is working fine. It's just "attack site" and "certificate" warnings make the internet inaccessible from any browser due to an update I'm 100% certain came from the Mozilla Firefox update I just received, because I'm never had a problem before on this machine, it happened instantly after the update.

I used a free wifi recently, now I have 3 bookmarked sites that when I click the bookmark, it takes me to the log in for the free wifi even though I am online

Anytime I go back to the exact webpage, it takes me back to the log-in for the free wifi I used out of town. Even though I am online at home. How do I clear this?
