OS X :: GLIMS Fix For No Preferences Menu


In 10.6 Snow Leopard on Safari 4, the menu is there, you just can't see it. The text has no color. By sheer luck I was reaching down under my desk to grab something and looked up to see the GLIMS preference panel I had left open, then an outline of text. It turns out that if you tilt your monitor back you can indeed see the GLIMS preference panel text outline enough to navigate and get it set up the way you want. Perhaps changing the contrast or something will help as well. Either way, the menu is indeed there.

OS X Leopard :: Mouse Preferences Missing From System Preferences Menu?
I have a G5 PowerMac (PowerPC processor) running 10.5.8. I just picked up a new Magic Mouse today and checked the mouse options to enable scrolling, only to find the "Mouse tab" under the Keyboard & Mouse menu missing. I've got Keyboard, Bluetooth, and Keyboard Shortcuts and nothing else.

I've delted the Systempreference.plist file.... and nothing. Anyone else have any suggestions?

Snow Leopard :: System Preferences Freezes Constantly / Fix It?
Here is my problem:
Almost every other time I try to open System Preferences it freezes. I have to Force Quit and restart it. After this, it works.

I suspect that the problem relates to an installed preference pane. If I had a 64-bit processor, I would force System Preferences to always load as 32-bit, however I don't have the option.

OS X Leopard :: Systems Preferences Windows Menu?
I am accustomed to clicking the Systems Preferences icon on the dock and getting a window with things lined up in rows. Just recently when I click it, it will say "System Preferences, Edit, View, Window, Help" at the top of the screen, and the only way I can view the list is to click "View". Then I get a drop-down menu that lists everything. But when I select one, nothing happens. What did I (or somebody else who uses this computer) do to cause this, and how can I get it back the way it was?

MacBook :: Disable The Menu Bar From Hiding And Fix Screen?
I've looked thoughly to find the answer online, system preferences and here with no luck. I recently updated my software to Mac OS X 10.7.4. Now the menu bar is automatically hiding, but reapearing when I mouse over and the screen in all windows are too wide and long. When I click the 'green' icon for resizing the window, it sizes it too wide and long. I am not in full screen and do not have enlarge on (COMMAND +) and i've check the display settings. Maybe Mac added this as a feature with the update thinking people will like it but I don't like it at all, my typing in an email is not visable on the right. Can someone please tell me how to turn this feature off? Also the resolution/clarity of my screen is not as good since the update.

I use the International Input Menu to select from multiple languages on my computer: U.S. English Extended, Simplified Chinese (ITABC), Traditional Chinese (PINYIN), Hangul (2-set Korean), Kotoeri (Hiragana, Katakana). I also have the Character Palette and Keyboard Viewer options checked.

I've noticed that whenever my computer 1) restarts from a software update, or 2) restarts from a system crash, my International Input preferences are lost. Repeated permissions repairs do nothing to resolve this issue.

Final Cut / Motion :: Unable To Open Preferences Menu
I can't open the preferences menu in Motion, when I go to the menu and click on the word "Motion" and then "Preferences..." nothing happens and Motion seam to work as usual.

I have Motion 4 and already did all the updates that can be done. I've already repaired permissions, restarted the computer, resinstalled Motion from the installation DVDs. Trashed the old preferences (that was a bad idea because then I couldn't set the preferences as I like them, so I put back the old preferences file in place). I created a new user account. But the problem is still there.Should I reinstall all Final Cut Studio?

When I reinstalled Motion I didn't uninstall and reinstalled it, but just installed it over the old version. Is there a way to uninstall it first, would it be usefull? Should I reinstall my whole computer?

Mac Bluetooth :: Menu Missing Under System Preferences Possibly Due To SL?
I have a Mac Mini, Intel Solo Core. Has Bluetooth, and was using it for a while when I got my Mini, under Leopard. Upgraded to Snow Leopard a few months ago. I am now realizing that the Bluetooth menu under System Preferences is missing, not sure when that happened. My bluetooth aluminum keyboard first started not fully working (the Function buttons lost their Play/Rewind/Volume etc commands, but I could still type).

Just installed the latest update that was just made available to me, and now WHAM, I have no keyboard. I've trashed the Bluetooth pref file in my library, tried resetting the SMC. No bluetooth devices show up under System Profiler, which is rubbish because it was working. This is my media server for my living room and I have a house full of people coming tomorrow night!

Applications :: Safari Without Glims And Adblock?
I just reinstalled Leopard on my Mac after Finder kept acting weird and during the re installation of my apps I started using Safari 4 without any input managers or plugins. I was going to install them but I'm now not so sure. Safari feels quite better. Even a page full of ads feels like it actually appears faster after I click it's link. Do these things actually bog Safari down a little or am I probably imagining it due to having a fresh install? It would seem silly that blocking ads would take as long or even longer than just showing them.

OS X :: Safari Quit After Glims Install
I've been using FireFox for months now, but wanted to give Safari another shot. Checking out some add-ons, I found Glims. I wanted it to change my search engine bar to Bing, instead of Google. I got it, installed it, and was prompted to restart Safari. I did, but now it won't open. I get this message. I tried uninstalling Safari and downloading a new copy, and that did nothing. I still get the same message. Any thoughts? Went to Home/Library/Input Managers and found a "Glims" folder. I trashed that and now it works fine, sans cookies and bookmarks.

OS X Leopard :: System Preferences Ignores Choices, Will Not Display Info In Menu Bar
I started up my Macbook Pro today, and the Time, Airport, and Bluetooth info. had all vanished from my menu bar. I went into System Preferences to put them back. I am able to check the appropriate boxes in system preferences, but this still does not cause the selected items to appear in the menu bar. Slightly scarier - my choices in System Preferences un-select themselves the instant I navigate away from them. Even if I select the option to "lock" my preferences, they disappear.

Hoping to fix the problem, I just downloaded and installed every system update available (including updating OS from 10.5.7 to 10.5.8), but that didn't solve anything.

I think this same problem might extend to other system preferences settings, because at the same time the menu bar problem started, I began to have minor display problems with my 3rd party monitor. Haven't had time yet to go through every single system setting to see how extensive the problem is, but it seems like a lot of different things became "slightly off" at the same time my menu bar problems started.

OS X Leopard :: System Preferences Won't Launch From Apple Menu In Mac OS X 10.5.8
I recently upgraded to 10.6 and then went back to 10.5.5 in a few hours.

When doing so, I chose to save a folder called "Previous System", as the Installer gave me this option.

I've upgraded to 10.5.8 via Software Update, after prior 10.5.5 installation through the DVD.

At some point, I tried to launch the System Preferences through Apple menu and got the familiar message: "The application quit unexpectedly, etc.". Since then it's a recurrent problem. It's been 3 days.

However, it does open from the dock icon.

I still have the "Previous System" folder on my disk. I've moved a few things from it to my Library (i.e. some minor applications like Skype, some Desktop items like documents and folders, some photos, music, etc.). I've pretty much started from scratch with everything else - Finder preferences, Wacom tablet driver, etc.

OS X Tiger :: System Preferences & Software Update Won't Launch From Apple Menu
I recently upgraded from 10.4.11 to 10.5.8 and then changed back to 10.4.11

When it was installed (from a Universal retail not the DVD that came with the mac) I copied all the folders from "Previous System" and replaced the newly made ones.

At some point I was using System Preferences when it vanished with the usual message "Closed unexpectedly, reopen, close etc". Since then neither System Preferences nor Software Update will launch from the apple menu. System Preferences will, however, open from the dock.

When they are clicked on the hard drive makes some noise and then stops and nothing appears.

OS X Leopard :: Can't Interrupt Preparing - Can't Get To TM Preferences Menu
I have been using TM successfully on my PB with File Vault encryption, I share the external HD with my wife's PB (no encryption), so only plug it in every few days. I turned FV off 2 weeks ago and have not tried to back up until today - which went successfully. I left the HD plugged in, but since then when it's time for the auto backup, TM just continuously "preparing". I can't turn it off, shut down, or get to the TM preferences window. Had to shut down with manual "off" button. Booted back up, when it came time for TM to back up, it started "preparing" and I can't get to TM preferences menu. I have not tried attaching the HD to my wife's PB.

Final Cut / DVD Studio :: Remote Menu Button To The Chapter Menu Or The Main Menu?
Using DVD Pro (version 4.2.1) for the first time, and I've discovered a lot of fun elements. Here is a question about the remote control settings.

I want people to be able to return to the main menu if they want while playing the track, by pressing 'menu' (and I've found the resume feature, too). However, the track has chapters, which are assigned to 3 chapter menus. So, when they are playing a particular chapter, i want them to be able to return from it to the chapter menu it came from, by pressing the 'menu' button.

However, this doesn't work: when playing the video track, pressing the 'menu' button takes me to the chapter menu assigned to that particular chapter, not the main menu that I assigned to the track.

Well, I see in the handbook that the marker remote setting takes precedence over the track setting ... so which would you find preferable:

1. when the viewer is playing the video, the menu button: goes back to the main menu.... then when the viewer is watching a particular chapter, pressing 'menu' also goes back to the main menu, instead of the chapter menu, so viewer has to navigate back into the 'scenes' menu

or

2 when watching the whole video, pressing 'menu' takes the viewer to the chapter menu and then has to 'up' to the Main menu.... and therefore when watching a chapter only, 'menu' button returns to the particular chapter's menu, which is fine.

I thought I would have the 'menu' button return to the chapter menu:: up button for faster/easier access to the main menu, for viewers just watching the video, and convenience for viewers watching a chapter.
