OS X :: Frozen - Finder And Desktop - Don't Have Permission To Open Certain Programs

Sep 17, 2010

The Mac OS X on the system has suddenly frozen her out of everything but the finder and the desktop. It boots fine and pops up on the desktop, and everything looks completely normal. But when you want to run an application and click on it, a big fat question mark appears over the icon in the bottom menu, no matter what application you click on. Further more it appears that all applications has been wiped from the system when you enter the applications folder. It is completely empty.

Now I've tried to click on different stuff, such as the internet, to turn it off, but nothing happens. I've also tried to enter the OSX preferences, but nothing happens when I do. At times it comes up with the message that you don't have permission to open certain programs, even though the programs apparently dont exist on the Mac. I've interrogated my girlfriend about her activity, and she swears she has done nothing out of the ordinary like download shady software or anything, and apparently all of this has come like lightning from a clear sky.

OS X :: Safari 3 - Keep Open After Close?

Mar 6, 2009

Most programs in OS X stay open when you close them (when you click the red X button) unless you specifically close them from the dock. I think Safari 3 used to have this functionality but now when I close Safari, it "quits" as in all my open tabs are closed. However Safari stays open.

Safari :: Command Q "greyed Out"...have To Force Quit To Close It?

Jun 28, 2012

I have the latest update for Safari on my MacBook Pro 17" (running the latest Lion update).  Lately, the command-Q (quit) option under the File menu is greyed out/not available. I tried using the Quit function from the dock icon for Safari--no good, either.  I have to Force Quit in order to close Safari.

Applications :: Safari 4 Auto Close / Open In New Tab Features In DL Manager?

Oct 8, 2009

First, I am fully aware of the two plug-ins that have both of these features. SafariStand and Glims. I'd prefer not to use SafariStand, and I don't want to use Glims (buggy). I'm not here to debate their merits. The features I want are for Safari's download manager to close automatically, and for all links to automatically open in new tabs.

What I'm wondering is: are there any other plug-ins that offer these features for Safari 4 running Snow Leopard? Are there any tweaks to the system that don't involve plug-ins? As in, are there some terminal commands that can emulate these settings somehow?

Safari Won't Open Or Quit And Cannot Shut Down

Mar 28, 2012

I have a 3 mo.old MacbookPro - OS X Lion 10.7.3 . Safari suddenly won't open or quit. I can't Shut Down; when I try I get an error message indicating Safari must quit first.  I use computer for just the basics -- web surfing,email, i-tunes, and just a few Word documents saved. So I still have most of my memory yet available, and have very few applications installed. Is there a simple solution to fix this and prevent it in the future.  So far I am not enjoying my switch from PC to Mac.  I have had far too many of these random, complicated glitches which seem to require an advanced degree in computer software to solve.

OS X :: After Battery Ran Out/ No Dock Can't Open Programs And Safari

Sep 25, 2009

my macbook (running Tiger) ran out of battery before it was able to shut itself down properly. Upon reboot (and ever since) Safari has been unable to open and there is no dock. I've tried installing firefox but it won't install, and many programs won't launch. I'm assuming something happened when the battery ran out, but I can't seem to fix it. Disk Utility won't work, AppleJack won't install,

I've restarted several times, tried to update.. everything, but nothing seems to work.

I've attached a screenshot of the finder window.. notice how it is missing all the stuff in the left hand column, the dock, and the arrows

MacBook :: Unable To Open Programs - Programs Are Not Displaying

Mar 25, 2010

I have a question about using my new samsung tv as a monitor for my macbook. I have all the cables and such and my TV reads the computer. It actually shows the desktop background, mouse, and the toolbar on the tv...
BUT....when i try and open a program such as safari or itunes it does not display the program on the monitor but rather on my macbook screen. It shows the program open on the tv monitor but it shoots off the screen and then opens on the macbook screen.

Also the mouse disappears from the tv monitor screen on the left side only, and when it does it becomes visible back on the macbook screen! Any tips or suggestions on how to get the programs to show up on the monitor instead of the macbook screen?

Can someone PLEASE tell me something, other than those options?

OS X :: Wish Programs Would Exit When Close Them?

Dec 9, 2010

I was wondering if there is a setting to change so when I close a program it doesn't still run on the dock.For example: If I open Numbers from the dock and then close it (by clicking the 'x' in the top left corner of the gui window), it will still be running in the background. The only way for me to close it (even after I've 'x'ed out of the window) is to right click on the Numbers icon and click on 'quit'. Since I have Numbers in the dock, visually I cannot tell that it is still running and using memory.This is fairly annoying, b/c it is easy to have many of these idle processes running in the background eating up memory and I find myself periodically having to go through my dock to see which processes are still running unbeknownst to me.

He has an iMac running OS 10.4. After he did a couple of software updates (I don't know exactly what, because I wasn't there) he lost the dock and can no longer restart or shutdown without holding the power button. I've repaired disk permissions, tried kill all Dock, and tried to change the dock setting to bring it back, but nothing has worked. He can still run programs from the finder.
