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 V10.7 Lion :: Stop It From Opening Old Docs When Launch An Application?

Apr 16, 2012

How the heck to I stop Lion from launching old docs when I open a new doc in MS Word, Excel, Preview, etc? I HATE this feature. Twice now I've edited the wrong document because when I click on a new Word doc, one that I worked on last automatic pops up on top of it. This is a ridiculous feature! Also, I don't need photos that I looked at yesterday magically opening when I open a new photo in Preview. That can be embarrassing if is someone is looking over my shoulder, if you know what I mean. Do I need to make sure I close all old docs instead of just quitting. Is there a way to just turn this frustrating auto open feature off?

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

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Re Install Lion & Then Install Itunes + Docs + IPhoto From Time Machine?

Apr 12, 2012

Ever since I downloaded iplayer - my mac has been running slow. I have followed a few tips to remove it and all other related files - but it still runs low (spinning wheel of death) and now pdf's dont download correctly (I guess I have deleted too much). 

My ideal would be to start from scrach - although I want to keep my itunes and iphotos files as well as my documents. Is there a way to reload back to factory settings then add selected programs and folders from timemachine? I am in the process of timemachine backing up everything now.

OS X Yosemite :: Closed Windows / Docs / Apps Reopening

Dec 7, 2014

where no matter if I close a window or document, windows/docs which had previously been open relaunch if I relaunch the app. For instance, I launch Safari and go to the following three sites: URL... I subsequently close blue.com and the later close safari completely. Upon re-launching Safari, I would expect red and white to reopen (the two sites that were open when I closed the program), however red. white AND blue reopen. 

this was just an example, in reality when this again just happened a few minutes minutes ago, Safari relaunched 27 websites in 4 different windows, even though I had specifically closed all sites/windows and quit out of Safari before re-launching. 

Similarly, upon restarts, the OS not only re-launches apps and windows I had open at the time I requested the restart but many documents, windows and applications that were CLOSED at the time I restarted the computer. When I close something, that seems like a clear indication that I am done with it and don't need it open. OS seems to feel differently.

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.

Applications :: IWork Apps To Save Docs As Microsoft Versions?

Apr 22, 2010

I don't mind iWork, but one thing that bugs me is having to specify all the time that i'd like to save the document as the microsoft version (ppt, doc, excel etc) instead of the apple formats. It also isn't that fun to then have to navigate to where the original file is and overwrite it. Any way to just have the apps default save your documents (whether new or old) as microsoft versions?

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Freezes And Won't Relaunch When Attempting To Backup Using Time Machine

Jun 6, 2014

I have been backing up for years using Time Machine (TM) which uses a hard drive connected to my Time Capsule on my network. I use an external drive connected to the Time capsule.Every night, my MBP is scheduled to backup which it has done for years. The last successful backup was 4 days ago. It stopped working and when I tried to click on TM starting manually, it hangs up and freezes Finder. I try to relaunch Finder and it freezes the computer by taking all icons off my desktop. I can use mail and other programs but FINDER will not work. I have used disk utilities to check the drive AND repair permissions.

The only way I can shut down is by holding the on/off button and then restarting. The computer starts up fine and works UNTILL I try to back up to TM again. The whole thing happens again. My O/S is regulary updated and I checked that too.

THere must be something corrupted or screwed up with the TM / Finder links.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Reopen Applications Sometime Does Not Work

May 4, 2012

Sometime, Lion does not reopen ALL my applications and files after shutdown. It works very fine for Mail. However, Safari, Microsoft Word and TextEdit are problems. There are indicator lights for those applications showing under the docks.  For example, when I click Safari, a new window and new tab will open. My previous tabs and windows are gone. It is killing since they are most likely important web pages for me.

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 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 :: All 3rd Party Apps Crashing On Launch All Of A Sudden

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.

Any ideas? I rebooted, repaired permissions but nothing I open that isn't made by apple works.
