OS X Mavericks :: Apps Disappear From Launch Pad

Sep 2, 2014

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.

OS X Mavericks :: Apps And Stuff Disappear When Upgrade From Snow Leopard

Sep 7, 2014

Will my apps and stuff and things I've downloaded disappear when I upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks? I am afraid everything will go away Do I need a USB to put my stuff in and then put it back when Mavericks has been applied? Because i'm downloading Mavericks right now and my iMac is so old it doesn't support half the stuff the new ones do. It was made in early 2009. And also, if it will stay, would it go away if I entered a different apple ID when it will reboot and say "Enter APPLE ID"

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Do Apps Disappear From The Dock After Close The Application

Jun 5, 2012

This just recently started to happen. Safari and Mail disappear everytime I quit the applications and I have to relaunch from launchpad. I have the checked the option "keep in the Dock". 

I am running Mac OS X version 10.7.4 on an iMac7,1 and have been for a while.  

I can't seem to find any current information in the Apple Discussion Forums. Probable something really simple for a really annoying occurance.

MacBook Pro :: Do Apps Restart After Launch

Feb 18, 2010

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Won't Launch New Or Updated Apps

Mar 24, 2012

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

This seems really odd, I came back to my MBA and noticed all my apps had crashed. Now I cannot open a single 3rd party application, they either don't open or crash at launch.

OS X Mavericks :: How Can A Calendar Completely Disappear

Sep 9, 2014

Every few months I have an issue with iCal. One or more of my calendars COMPLETELY disappear. I have an iPhone with a list of calendars on the phone and on iCloud. The iCal application on my laptop only has iCloud. Calendars seem to magically vanish from iCloud while they remain on my phone. It's driving me crazy!!! I'm about to look for a different calendar app to use. I need my MacBook Pro to sync with my iPhone.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apps Relaunch, Docs Reopen After Launch Machine?

Feb 14, 2012

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.

OS X Mavericks :: DVD Player Won't Launch

Aug 26, 2014

Error message from console: 

DVD Player: unable to load the interface builder file Dock Menu.nib because the object archive is missing. Valid nib files must contain either keyed objects, nib, objects, nib or data nib. Full Path: /Applications/DVD Player.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/DockMenu.nib I've recently upgraded to Mavericks from Snow Leopard. DVD Player was working fine. In fact I've managed to launch it several times by loading the disc while using Recovery Startup. 

I tried resetting SMC/VPRAM, re-installing Mavericks, deleting the plist. 

I'm on a mid-2009 iMac.  I should add...when I put the DVD in the slot...there's a click or two...then it spits it out again - except for the few times I've managed to load it using the Recovery Startup disk.

OS X Mavericks :: Launch Daemon And Routing

Sep 8, 2014

The plist file is well launched as a Daemon as machine start up. It starts a shell script which is suppose to change one route in the Mac routing table.

The syslog trace mention that the shell script is well started, but when I check the route, it kept the default route. 

I suppose the problem is due to the fact that the network interface is not up when the script is started at the first time 

If I modify the plist file and get ride of the LaunchOnlyOne key the new route is affected, but the script keep running for ever every minutes.

The plist file: 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "URL">
<plist version="1.0">
[Code] .....

OS X Mavericks :: TextEdit / Preview And Other Apple Applications Won't Launch?

Jun 21, 2014

For reasons which escape me, since I rebooted yesterday, I have been unable to launch TextEdit, Preview or Pages - they just say not responding when their icon is ctrl-clicked in the Dock. I just checked Numbers and Keynote, which I have never used and after their initial welcome screen, they too became unresponsive. As far as I can tell, GarageBand, iPhoto and probably others in iLife are unaffected, neither are Mail and Safari. 

I found that a similar problem was being experienced a few years ago by some people using TextEdit and Preview and it was solved by re-signing the application in Terminal. I have tried that but it hasn't worked. I have repaired permissions and I'm just downloading the Mavericks installer so that I can make a USB installer and re-install OS X 10.9.3. 

I am downloading which may save me the trouble of re-installing OS X 10.9.3, I'd be very grateful.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Java Apps Won't Run, Java Preferences Won't Launch

Apr 27, 2012

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.
