Applications :: Firefox Wants To Use A Font To Access A Volume?

Apr 6, 2009

I received an odd popup window in Firefox 3.0.8 on a Mac running Leopard 10.5.6

It was:

Firefox wants to use the font "Lucida Sans Unicode" on the volume "NO NAME".

This font is not installed. Allow Firefox to use this font?

Note: Volume "NO NAME" is my Boot Camp XP partition.

Also, in the screenshot it says Firefox3 as I renamed the Firefox app that while testing version 3 while keeping version 2 on the drive.

Does anyone recognize this popup?

Why is FIrefox trying to access my Boot Camp partition?

Why would it need to use a font on a volume?

OS X :: Font In Firefox & Safari - Rogue Font Has Hijacked My Web Fonts?

Aug 1, 2009

I just got some internet going again after having moved. I've had my new Octopus for a few weeks tho. So much to my surprise, I open up my gmail account and it's practically unintelligible. Some weird cartoon like font is my default font. As far as I can tell, all the default fonts are activated and all the settings point to the activated fonts, but this is driving me absolutely F__KING bonkers. Has anyone ever had this problem? Now to be fair, I did install some fonts from a semi questionable font disk a week or two ago, so maybe some rogue font has hijacked my web fonts.

Software :: Font Size Big In Both Firefox And Safari?

Oct 12, 2010

A web dev client of mine was complaining about the site we built her, and sent over some screenshots. It appears her font size is about two sizes larger than "normal" in both Firefox and Safari. I had her reset it to normal in Firefox - no change, apparently the setting wasn't made in Firefox.

OS X :: Youtube Videos Volume Bar Doesn't Work With Firefox Sometimes?

Mar 31, 2010

i'm having this minor but annoying problem with Firefox. every now any then when I move my mouse over the volume button while I'm watching a Youtube video in order to get the volume bar to pop up, nothing happens. if i click repeatedly on the button and go crazy it will pop up, but it will not let me slide the volume bar up and down. i don't remember having this problem with Safari. it's sort of like the browser isn't recognizing my mouse cursor hovering over the volume area in order for it to trigger the bar to pop up, if that makes any sense.

OS X :: Universal Access Has Bigger Font Size In System Preferences?

Aug 9, 2009

I am new to the "mac world" ... just got my first macbook about a week ago so this question may have a very simple answer or it may not.

The issue I have is that in System Preferences, "Universal Access" has a bigger font size than any other window under S. Preferences. Nothing is affected, everything works well, but it just bothers me, is there any way to fix this?

I am attaching a screen of Universal Access compared with a window of normal font size.

Applications :: Control ITunes Volume (not System Volume) From Apple Aluminum Keyboard?

Oct 20, 2009

I have a Mac Pro and not too long ago I swapped from a fat, heavy and filthy white Apple Keyboard to a new skinny silver one. I like it, and also love that the F7-9 Skip Back-Pause/Play-Skip Forward keys work for iTunes, even when another app is active (what's the word I'm looking for - in focus or whatever). But I use Optical output, so the volume keys (F10-12) don't do anything. I know that, when iTunes is the active app, I can command-+/- to change the volume, but I'd love to be able to map the F10-12 keys to do that - without having to have iTunes active (playing, but not the active window).

OS X :: Non-System Volumes Are Locked Can't Access Volume?

Sep 14, 2010

Previous History: I'm on a MacPro and I have my main user account on another volume than my system. This has worked just beautifully for me over the past years, sometimes there are drawbacks and it's kind of more failure-prone in some cases. This 'some cases' now happened again: there was a blackout and after that I couldn't login to my user account on the non-system volume anymore. I've been there once and hadn't any problems fixing it somehow, but now I screwed up big time.

OS X :: Firefox Vs Safari - Some Sites Can Access Fully But Others Cannot?

Nov 19, 2004

Firefox is open, I was wondering what differences anyone has seen between it, and Safari. I have been using Safari with but a few problems for some time. Is there an opinion as to which is better, it at all? I am using it with OS 10.3.6 on two G4's, a Titanium laptop, and a 1.25 dual processor, both with plenty of RAM. There is, however, one specific question. Some sites I can access fully with the laptop, but not with the desktop, even though they are virtually the same hardware & software.
