Applications :: How To Stop Firefox To Open Previous Sites On Restart

Dec 12, 2010

This is my biggest software design pet peeves. I hate when applications make too many choices for the user. Don't get me wrong, I don't like when a program asks the same question over and over again either. So I'm using firefox and I had about four or five windows open. And it froze up for over five minutes so I force killed it. When I opened it again it automatically tried to open all those websites I had open before - all at the same time. This isn't even a bug, it's the designers bad choice. I don't even need them open. I was only still using one. And I don't know which one caused the freeze (probably a flash heavy website like abercrombie) but I certainly don't want to open that one again. I'm trying to get Firefox to not do this anymore.

Applications :: Accessing Http Sites On Safari And Firefox - Can't Establish Secure Connection?

May 23, 2009

I have been having this problem for a while. It happens every now and then, sometimes more often too. Sometimes at random times, when I try to access https websites in Safari such as Internet banking, signing in into eBay etc, it has an error.

It says "Safari can't open the page because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server". To resolve this problem I always have to turn off my Airport and then turn it back on. See screenshot - [URL]

I've also tried opening it in Firefox and it also doesn't work. In Firefox, the error is "Data Transfer Interrupted: The connection to has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred." See screenshot - [URL]

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.

OS X :: Applications Won't Open Until Restart - Snow Leopard?

Nov 7, 2009

I've been having a problem with Snow Leopard since I installed it, and it's been bugging me like mad, but I haven't been able to find a solution or anyone with a similar case anywhere. Today, however, I tried again, and I ran across this news article, which perfectly described my problem:


Finally, twice in the past week now I have experienced a very old Mac OS X bug that I thought was gone for good: All of a sudden, when I try launching an application, the application's Dock icon starts bouncing endlessly in the Dock and the application never fully launches. Instead, eventually (after a few minutes of endless bouncing), the bouncing stops, but the application icon stays there without the status light indicating that it's open, and right-clicking on it results in an "Application not responding" message. You can force-quit and try again, but it won't work any better the second time.

And once this starts happening, if you want to get anything accomplished with your Mac, you really have no choice but to restart the entire machine.Has anyone experienced anything similar and/or knows how to fix it? It really inhibits me from doing almost anything with my Mac when I can't open any applications./edit: To add some context, this only happens after my laptop has been running for a while and seems to affect some applications but not others (maybe those that have already run since restart are fine?). I still have over 1.2gb of free RAM while I try it, so I don't think it's a memory issue either.

Applications :: Won't Open Fan Control / Saying Restart System Prefrances

Apr 27, 2010

(Not SMCFancontrol by the way). I am running Snow Leopard, and every time I had to open Fan Control, it would restart System Preferences (presumably to launch in 32-bit mode). Now however, it still says "..needs to restart System Preferances" but when I press OK, System Preferences does not reopen. Hence I can't access the application.

OS X :: Brand New Mac Mini Unable To Open Certain Sites - How To Fix It

Jul 22, 2009

I'm posting what appears to be the first such post in a long time. My brand new Mac Mini 2009 will not open certain websites, no matter which browser I use (Firefox, Safari, or Opera).

The list includes all sites at the following domains but I am sure is not limited to:[URL]

My wife's PC and my old PC all open these sites fine. Other macs on my wireless network also open them fine.

The message I get is that the browser could not connect to the server. The connection is fine as I can open other pages.

IMac :: Stop Responding - Need To Restart After Unplug

Dec 10, 2010

I have found the past 4 weeks that my iMac will not respond to any mouse movement, keyboard, trackpad or pushing the power button every 5 days or so. I must unplug from the wall, replug into wall then push power button, then it boots up. I have had iMac for 9 months and has always just went to sleep and when I move mouse awakens. After I must unplug, it works correctly again for 5 to 6 days then must be unplugged again. Anyone know why this is happening as I do not believe any settings have been changed and I am the only user of this iMac.
