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.
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.
Info: MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013), OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)
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'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 am running Safari 5.1.7, Mac OS 10.7.4 on an iMac Intel Core 2 Duo machine, and Safari was working fine until this morning when Safari starting crashing whenever it is launched; I have the same set up on a Macbook Pro and Safari is working fine.
Having read a few posts i have changed the setting for Safari to 32 bit mode which has enable me to launch it, however as this is a 64bit machine that was working fine until this morning that does not really seem like a solution more like a temp fix

This is like my 4th thread since I've tried to update my hard drive. I got everything restored from Time Machine. BUT! Now, when I go to launch iPhoto, it just says the application quit unexpectedly. I've tried restarting and resetting. It's quite like 12 times.
For the past month, every time a launch system preferences it takes several seconds to load. Then, when I go into desktop/screensaver it takes a long time to load. So I open activity monitor, and when system preferences is open, its using 22mb but as soon as I open desktop/screensaver, it shoots up to 735mb and goes to 45% on the user usage. I hope this makes sense. I'm not sure if this is normal or if my ram is going bad.
I asked earlier. Purchased QT Pro. Every time I launch it I have to re enter the registration # which is a huge pain.Someone (Link) wanted me to open the terminal and run some diagnostic. There is NO Way i should have to go into my terminal and run programs to run an apple program I just purchased. I am using Lion 10.7.4,
I downloaded steam to my iMac and every time I load it it crashes and I get the option to reopen it, when I do It happens again. I have tried 30 times and to no avail, restarted twice and turned of and on 3 times makes no difference.
I recently bought iMac on 2011 with snow leopard installed, recently I decided to try lion, I made a fresh install but since then my Mac is just making these annoying noises, kind like alert beep every time I launch an application, surf on web...
I have replaced the "Login Items" functionality with an Automator app that runs when I log in. It asks if I want to load all my startup items now, or just cancel it. I have several startup items, including some utility apps, but also bigger apps like Safari and iTunes.
I currently do this by "Get Specified Finder Items" providing a list of the apps, and then "Open Finder Items," opening all of them at once so they are all loading up simultaneously. I then wait for a while until my CPU has calmed down and everything is ready to go (which is the reason for moving them to an Automator workflow in the first place; I can cancel loading if I don't want to wait).
Would it be better to open one, wait for it to load, open the next, etc.? Would this have any effect on performance as far as either the time it takes to load up or the efficiency of the computer as it operates with all of these things loaded?

I'm relatively new to macs, about a year in, but I've never gotten around to using Time Machine. Mainly because its not my primary machine so I'm not using it for anything serious at the moment. That being said, I somehow managed to corrupt OSX to the point where it needs to be re-installed. Basically what happened is I tried to resize my Bootcamp partition and either Disk Utility crashed or I did something wrong that caused it to during the resize.
Now whenever I click anywhere on the menu bar, the current app crashes. So what I want to know is, If I create a Time Machine backup today and then reinstall OSX. Can I then access my backup but only reinstall the apps? Or will the new version of OSX be overwritten with my corrupted one?
How can I make volumes exact sizes? I've noticed that when changing the size of my partitions with Disk Utility, the size of the partition actually ends up being .12GB smaller than what I set it to be. So if I type 300.00 in, the partition ends up being 299.88. If I type 300.12 in, it ends up being 299.88. If I type 300.13 in, it ends up being 300.01. If I type 360.12 in, it ends up showing 360.00 in Disk Utility, but on the desktop when I have show item info turned on it says 359.99GB.
handbrake rips them into great mkv files and that's cool i need that sometimes but as of now i just want the exact same files.. that way i can choose subtitles and chapter and have a menu. What would the settings be in order for me to get the exact thing without the protection?If this is not possible, what program would you suggest? I've read that mactheripper makes bad decryptions, i don't know if it's true but i don't want to spend hours and a few dvds to finding out..
Maybe I expect too much, or need to learn about some networking or other tweaks to help things along, but I feel like my Mac Pro has disappointing performance.
I've got an Early 2008 Mac Pro, dual quad core Intel Xeon 2.8 GHz processors, 12 GB of memory, 1.6 GHz bus, gigabit ethernet to a 25Mbps/25Mbps fiber (Fios) connection, have run namebench to find the fastest name servers possible, and I still feel like my Mac Pro is slow. Just popped in a 500GB Momentus XT Hybrid Drive to replace the 78Mbs 320GB drive that came stock to help things along. Helped speed boot times and common app load times a lot, but after things are loaded, not much is notably faster.
OK, so I let Firefox get out of hand sometimes and I have 100+ open tabs, 4 open browsers (and sometimes 2 or 3 versions of Firefox running different profiles) -- Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari -- ssh tunnels and sessions galore, Evernote, Time Machine, and VMware running some video monitoring software (Dog Poop Cam -- gonna catch whomever is letting their dog crap in my yard).
Even shutting software hogs down and then trying to play Team Fortress 2, granted at 1920x1200 pushing to limits of the ATI Radeon HD 2600, things are still feeling slow. TF2 in Windows seems much faster and more responsive on the same hardware -- maybe that's just the fault of Steam or Apple's lack of up-to-date drivers, but frustrating nonetheless.
Load average is usually 0.5 to 1.0, sometimes reaching 2.0 (full load would be 8.0), memory usage is at 50-60%, and disk activity is reasonable. What is wrong? What can I tweak to improve things? Are my expectations simply too high?
an exact copy of OS X disk which come with my new Mac book pro -just in case the original disk gets damaged (I already had such unpleasant experience with previous Mac). what are the precise steps to do this burning of an exact copy of CD and can it be done with software already installed in my Mac laptop.The laptop is bought 4 months ago with OS X 10.6, no additional (3rd party) disk burning software is installed.
