OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: What Would Make Bookmarks Bar In Safari Disappear
Jun 9, 2012
I restarting my computer after it crashed and now the book marks bar that appears above tabs has vanished? I've gone into preferences and made sure all the approperiate boxes are ticked and they are. Niether my top sites and reading list icons are there either?It's also doing funny things like a email wont open if I double click on it plus I'm sure I'll find more strange happenings as I go along.Is there a way you can set it back to the defuals like doing a system restore in windows?
About a week ago after shutting down the night before and restarting the next morning I noticed about 100 of my bookmarks (saved over the years) had vanished from Safari (5.1.7) / OS X Lion. I replaced bookmarks.plist from Time Machine which brought them back but they disappear again once I add any new bookmark. I've emptied cache, reset Safari and no joy. The added trouble now is I have to keep adding bookmarks every day so now I need to preserve the new ones but still get the old ones back.
After a clean OS X install (Snow Lpd updated to Lion) and all system updates, I have imported my old bookmarks (html created by Safari just couple of days back). After import they appear on the left panel as Imported xx.xx.2012.After relaunching Safari 5.1.7, the folder is gone. More than that, Safari won't retain any webpage bookmarked, they would all disappear when I quit (or relaunch) Safari.I have trashed the com.apple. Safari. plist file a few time already and emptied the trash, repaired disk permissions, but problem persists.

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"
Prior to upgrading to Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac from Office 2008, one of my widgets (url...) displayed a double-arrow character (âŸ·) in the text. Since installing Office it has been replaced by a question mark in a box. I haven't encountered this problem elsewhere yet.Could installing Office have altered other files or fonts to cause problems?

All my bookmarks in the bookmarks bar. I want to move them all so they are just in bookmarks menu dont want anything in bookmarks bar. I have edited renamed moved the bookmarks from bookmarks bar without a problem until I quite safari. Once I reopen safari all changes I made disappear and it reverts back to original with all bookmarks on bookmarks bar. what am I doing wrong that i cannot make permanent changes to my bookmark bar on Safari 5.1.3?
After my recovery drive went missing and trying to reinstall it, had to do a format of my hard drive and reinstall everything once I got OS X reinstalled and up-to-date, I tried to import my bookmarks from a backup bookmarks file, when I quit safari and re-open safari bookmarks were missing and default ones back in place. When searching though the forums for how to fix this problem but too know unluck they did not work.
I have a mac pro that I bought in the summer of 2007. It's got 2 quad core 3.0ghz xeons (8-core). Will I notice a significant improvement in performance with snow leopard because of 'grand central' or is it one of those things that is more theoretical and you need all your programs to utilize the technology?
Put snow leopard on my 15" MacBook Pro 2.2ghz core 2 duo, 2ghz ram, 128mb video ram computer (purchased in late 2007 right after Leopard came out). The computer was running great on Leopard, no hitches whatsoever. Put snow leopard on it, expecting to experience performance boosts, cool new features (LOL), and just all in all a more stable computer. Got none of these.
Everything on the computer runs slower than before. Noticeably. Battery life is significantly less than before as well.
Anyone else experience these same issues on their Macbook?
I want to install Windows 7 on a friends' computer, which at present, has no working OS on it. The tricky part is her optical drive is totally kaput. I've been able to find some instructions on how to make live USBs in leopard (like these), but so far, none of them have been bootable by a PC.
When I try to use the disk utility's "restore" function, I get an error message saying "Could not validate source - error 254"
I've googled around for other possible solutions, but haven't turned up anything. Has anybody here been able to figure this out?
I had some bad experiences in the past with my first MacBook Air (version 2.1) in which external drives kept getting erased without any good reason. I think it's due to the fact that I had to connect a USB cord to another computer when I had an external drive plugged into the MBA because the MBA could not power it on its own. Â I thought it was due to a bad external drive and I took it to Samsung service center and complained that their drive was malfunctioning. I got a refund. But later on, I found that the same thing happened to another external drive and to a USB flash drive, so I realized that it had nothing to do with the external disks and something to do with the computer. I used the same drives that got erased on a newer MacBook Air (version 3.2) and I never had the sudden erasure problem. Â
Anyhow that's the background to why I want to make a clone of the external disks in my possession. If for some reason, the external disk gets suddenly erased, I would like a copy somewhere in safekeeping so that I do not lose all my movies. Â
How do I make a clone of an external disk? Â
I will be using a MacBook Air (3.2) for this task. It has two USB ports. Can I use Carbon Copy Cloner to do this? Just choose a source disk (external disk I want to clone) and a destination disk (the external disk where I want it to be cloned to)?
