My computer died and I had ship it to apple. I was in firefox at the time that it died. Will firefox spring back open and load those same pages up again for those techs upon STARTUP??
First the techs will have to fix it. Secondly I'm not sure if the sudden termination (aka death of the computer) will count as a "crash" or not.
I know sometimes my computer would shut down for no reason, then I would have to MANUALLY relaunch firefox. When it simply crashes it usually does relaunch automatic (throwing up all those pages u were just on) though, right?
I was on some private social sites and last time I had to turn some hardware in my passwords mysteriously changed also, I got a mobile notice. Although that had nothing to do with apple I need to know if firefox would startup on its own or not so I can change my passwords in advance.
there is a couple of apps that have appeared in my launch pad and i can't delete them. I've been holding the track pad until it shakes and theres no option to delete. the apps are smart converter pro 2 and Microsoft silver light. i may add that i haven't downloaded these apps and are confused where they have come from!
I have just installed the infamous acid search to enable my safari to use my local google search instead of .com but i am unable to uninstall it, because it is nowhere to be found. I have read many posts about this issue but there are none of the typical folders in the library folder and nothing seems to be working. I have not yet tried to uninstall safari because i am afraid of loosing all of my information like bookmarks etc.
I have had Lion since the day it came out, and this is the first time I've encountered this problem. All of the applications that I have downloaded and installed before yesterday worked perfectly. Then, out of the blue, any application that I install or update (not from the App store) refuses to launch. It either bounces forever in the dock or does nothing when it is clicked.
The only system changes I have made are installing Photoshop CS6 Beta and Steam. So far, I've tried:
- Permissions & Disk repair through the Lion recovery partition
- Removing and re-downloading the apps
- Running in 32-Bit mode
I'm running 10.7.3, with all the latest updates installed, on a mid-2011 Macbook Pro. Restoring from a TM backup is not really a viable option currently, since my backup drive is 50 miles away and unavailable for the next week and a half
I know this question has been asked and answered but when I read the answer in previous threads, it makes no sense to me. It gives a terminal command that says killall;dock. How can that fix a problem that involves the launchpad.
I had lots of apps in launchpad now I have fewer than half.I know the apps are actually in the applications folder but why does the icon not appear in Launchpad and how do I get them back.

I'm running OS 10.5.2 on a MacBook Pro and I've been having the following intermittent issue:Wen I attempt to launch an application. Either from a shortcut in the Dock, or by double clicking on a file associated with that application, or by double clicking on the application icon in my Applications folder I get the following error message.The application ?App Name? cannot be launched.-10810 It doesn't always happen and it isn't always with the same application(s). I've had it happen with everything from TextEdit to Dreamweaver CS3.
I close all my programs before shutting down. Since installing Lion, programs I used recently relaunch when I start up the machine, sometimes the next day. No, I don't have "Start on Login" selected for these apps in the dock. Another weird thing: I selected a Word document to open, the app launched and the last document I was in also opened, even though I didn't select it.
Since the flurry of 2012 updates, Java is completely broken on my Mac Pro. Java dependent apps don't start and Apple Support says to enable the apps in Java Preferences. Nice idea, but Java Preferences WILL NOT LAUNCH either. There were plenty of tools to address flashback and they DID NOT break normal day to day operations.I downloaded the package from support to try a re-installation, but it says "A newer version of Java is already installed" and offers me the option to Close. No reinstall, nothing. Apple support is at it's usual level of service on this issue, completely INVISIBLE.
I bought an imac 2 years ago, and updated it to leopard when that was released. I no longer have the discs i used for Leopard, only the original mac os x 10.4 discs.I am very soon going to be selling this machine and need to wipe everything so that all is left if the operating system in the form you would expect as if you had just bought a new mac.How can this be achieved, i tried disck utility> erase, but only erase free space was 'highlighted'.
I updated from 10.7.3 to 10.7.4 last night. Now booting takes much longer - as if Finder is taking an extra 5 minutes to load. Then I tried to launch Preview and Textedit for work and neither will launch. They bounce in the dock for a couple of seconds then disappear. I've looked around the net and couldn't find anything that helps. Anyone got any idea how to fix this?

I just followed this link here [URL] to install my SSD and I foolishly did the Zero Erase. After searching through macrumors, it seems that I have killed my drive. Is there any form of redemption? Corsair F60 on a brand new MBP 15inch
I just found out about Coconut Wifi. But I can't seem to get it to open. When I click on the app nothing happens. Has any one had success with the program? Also, do you know of any other programs similar to it in case I can't make this work.
Recently installed Lion and my mail just won't start. I've already deleted Library/Mail and the file Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist but nothing changed. The icon bounces a few times, then quits. I get a quite long error message. Should I copy it here?
Have a 2008 Macbook that has begun going from the launch chime directly into sleep mode. On occasion, with a lot of trying different key combinations during start, it will launch.. Acts like it wants to get warmed up to make the connection. Can I fix it?
