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.

Using F'fox on Windows 7, when I have several windows open, why does the relative location of those windows on the task bar occasionally change?

Typically I have three Firefox windows open, each with several tabs. Firefox itself is pinned to the Windows taskbar. A few of the tabs are set to auto-reload. The be… (read more)

Typically I have three Firefox windows open, each with several tabs. Firefox itself is pinned to the Windows taskbar. A few of the tabs are set to auto-reload.

The behavior that I find strange is that the window which initially had the middle position in the task bar occasionally migrates to the first position. Can this behavior be controlled, or at least predicted?

Thanks

I just bought a new Windows 7 desk top computer by dell (Model 3847). My Vista finally died after 7 years. I have been able to set this one up just like I did with Vista. So I have been looking at things that I have never had much time or interest in or COULD FIND. LOL. So I found properties and saw that no Windows 7 checked. The same thing is on IE 11. I thought something had to be checked to avoid crashing or rejecting a download.

With this new computer I have had 3 crashes. I would like to know if FF is compatible with Dell and its products. I have always had Dell and never had problems until 3 days ago when Vista OS quit on me.

I did find out that you do not have to register with Microsoft because I believe the top person forgot to add it in the system. They just want people to join Windows Live or anything Windows.

Well I am learning a lot about Windows all over again. Microsoft should bring back XP. It was the only stable system.

I posted a reply to my original question, and when I previewed it, it was "different" (cannot explain, however the string of words has an extension). I tried to correct it, and even re-posted it, and there is no way I can edit it or delete it. I hope that it is "readable the way it is now (?). I would have deleted it if there were an option for that.

Only in Firefox and Palemoon am I getting a condition where thumbnail images are appearing off the web page (to the right) as shown in the attached image.

I don't get this problem in any other major browser i.e. Chrome/IE/Opera/Safarai so I'm assuming that the issue will be specific to Mozilla?

I have also started Firefox in safe mode several times, I have turned off hardware acceleration, I have checked that all my plugins are uptodate and also checked preferences on the about:config page, and have exhausted myself in trying to workout what could be causing this problem.

Look forward to any other suggestions or possible fixes.
