Screenshot won't paste, but it says:

"The operation can't be completed bc some items had to be skilled. For each item choose File>Get Info, make sure "Locked" is deselcted, and then check the Sharing and Permissions section. When ready etc try again."

Which items are locked and how do I find them? Is there a workaround?

Thanks for your help Ben

I just got a notice to upgrade my firefox. It worked differently by downloading a 1MB "firefox_setup.exe" file. I ran it. The update included a bunch of extras -- more than I would have guessed. I accepted RealPlayer. I verified the plugin updates: I had a ton, a dozen from RealPlayer alone. I disable most. The post install welcome page looked different and mostly offered another ton of programs to download. "post-install.com" is shown at the bottom. For fun I checked my version after the "update install." It said 13.0.1 which seemed wrong. On the help window I checked for updates and firefox immediately began downloading another file (~ 25MB... looked familar). I have not applied that yet. I checked the above setup file: it is Ver 2.1.0.0 of Company "InstallManager"

Has Firefox update been hijacked, or just screwed up. Should I uninstall my goofy Firefox (and RealPlayer) or can I just apply the "real" update I just got to return to normal?

For decades I received and sent e-mail without each time signing up. Suddenly the google team emerges, demands I sign up, then places some declarations on my sight that block access to any new e-mail I might have received. I have spent a lot of time to work around this, all in vain. I think this behavior by Google is outragious. I wish I could denounce or sue them.

How to disabl "blue underlined links" (which I did not code) in FireFox? Here's an example website that has no underlined links coded in the simple html source: www.setv.org. After I updated FireFox to a more recent FireFox version, blue underlines appear in websites. I know that there is a way to disable that annoying 'feature'.

Thanks in Advance

Hi

im trying to sync my bookmarks back to my desktop which i just reformatted, but i do not have a backup of my recovery key before the desktop was reformatted.

basically, i have 1 and only 1 device which is my desktop. so there is no way for me to try to retrieve my previous recovery key before it was reformatted.

im able to access my account via "https://account.services.mozilla.com/" , but there is no way for me to sync/retrieve my data. i know my data is still there because when i click "Request a quota increase" it states that im currently using xxxxK amount of space.

is there any mozilla staff who can help me retrieve my data in there?

Can anyone point me to the firefox version 28 exe file fore windows?

I can find this link " https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ " but it lists a number for version 28s (28.0, .0b1/2/3.../9) and the sub-directories there are a mess of stuff that I have no idea where to go and what to get.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I updated to 29 and the GUI change is too much for me, so I installed a really old version of ff and am looking to update back to 28 until I feel like I want to adjust to 29.

I do this and yet when I turn my computer on the next day, it asks me to do it again. Also clicking on Update the plug in produces a Adobe Security Bulletin webpage but it's just a black page. Also, everytime I sign in to Yahoo mail, it asks me to install the Yahoo Mozilla add-on, even though I've installed it everyday for the last few days. Thanks.

I go to About Firefox, and it doesn't start downloading anything (which I allowed in preferences), it just says go to firefox.com for updates. And firefox.com tells me to go into About Firefox. I have tried re-installing the browser a few times, and have updated all my preferences to the ones recommended. Still can't get updates to install. It's one big loop.

How can I get rid of an important improvement idea concerned with online banking - preferably eMail address?

So here comes the idea:

When in online-banking (quite commonly!) the page/portal of the Bank has to be abandoned f.i. to look up something else, or this happens acccidentally, the connection is forced to break with a timeout. No good for the system, worse for the user as all entries are lost and have to be done again. And to get into the portal again may take some time until on server-side the user-gate is closed, and next time the entry is usually hampered with stupid and tedious explanations.

Solution: An extra list in 'Extras' to hold all URLs where 'warnings' are wanted.

'Warnings': When a portal or page (URL) listed here is commanded to be closed or this happens unwanted, a prompt for y/n with "do you really want to close?"

Preferable structure of the list: Optional in addition to the URL i.e. in quotes or other appropriate delimiters the text of a deliberately chosen message to replace the standard warning.

PS: could be useful for many other applications also!

Micro says I need update, and so do you, and then you say I'm already updated.

When I go from MSN (on my Mac), it redirects me to update my browser. I then go to a Mozilla page that tells me that it looks like I'm running an older version. I then follow the instructions to get an update, and am told that my Firefox is currently up to date. I dislike the extra step Microsoft makes me go through, and the conflicting messages from Mozilla.

How do I get out of this?
