OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Click On Firewall Tab In Security / Privacy Settings Pane
May 19, 2012
I've just discovered that I can't access the Firewall tab in the Security & Privacy settings pane. I click on it, but nothing happens. I'm pretty sure that I was able to do this before and turn my firewall on - I get asked sometimes if I can allow an app to receive incoming connections.
MacBook Pro (15-inch 2.4/2.2 GHz), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
What's up in Safari 5.1.3 Cookies. After removing all the website data, I recently chose "Block Cookies Always" After opening "Yahoo" in Safari, I looked at the "Privacy Preference Pane" again. It now reads "Block cookies Always" and says 37 websites stored cookies or other data. I looks like the choice to block cookies has little effect on Safari.†Is there any way to protect yourself from unwanted cookies? By the way, in order to sign in to the Apple discussion website, cookies must be enabled.

I'm trying to change a security setting on my MacBook Pro to allow an app to be downloaded. The lock in the corner is locked but when I try to unlock it, it stays locked. I'm logged in as administrator and have opened the lock under Users. Why can't I unlock this to make the changes?
I want to "Like" Kate Miller-Heidke when I'm shopping for music but it keeps telling me.†"If you would like to perform this action, please change your privacy settings."†I've tried changing every privacy setting I can think of.
I can't open the Security preference pane in System Preferences. I can open desktop settings, spotlight, expos & spaces etc just fine, but the moment I click 'Security', I get the spinning beach ball, system preferences freezes and I have to force shut it down. I made a quick video using Screenflow to demonstrate the issue (the beach ball doesn't seem to appear in the video .. it did though) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2264334/Pref...e%20Issues.mov I tried repairing the permissions. Didn't work.
I tried to enable my firewall by clicking on the security panel in the server preferences, but it isn't there. I am using FireVault and I have Snow Leopard installed in my MacMini OSX. Am I vulnerable to malicious attacks in the internet?
I am setting up a studio of 40 new Macs and can't find anything relating to setting up the Leopard firewall. All users will have Standard (mobile) accounts on Active Directory domains, and will be using the Adobe CS4/VMFusion with XP/Office 2007. If I have the firewall on 'Set access for specific services and applications' will it block the applications and prompt for an admin password?
I have a problem with firewall under 10.6.5 under both of my macs (MBPRo and MacMini). The system firewall forgets the settings that allow connetction for iTunes, World of Warcraft Launcher, Blizzard Downloader, DropBox app. I have to mention that settings are set for this apps in system preferences / firewall.
I want to use AirPort Express to send iTunes to my stereo. I get my internet connection from a wireless modem (Telus is my ISP). I can establish a new network between my MacBook and my AirPort Express which will work (iTunes comes out of my stereo), but then I cannot access my wireless network and get the internet (my Mac will only allow one network connection at a time); and I can connect an ethernet cable from my the WAN port on my wireless modem to my AirPort Express, which will also work. But I cannot get my AirPort Express to join my existing wireless network. Telus tells me this won't work because they won't allow another network to join their network. I'm guessing this would be a Telus Firewall issue, but when I look at the Firewall settings Telus provides,
I've upgraded to iTunes 10.1 and every time I open it I get the following message. I've tried accepting multiple times and still no luck. I've removed the rule from the firewall settings, rebooted and opened iTunes again.
I am using the native NTFS read/write support via the /etc/fstab "hack" for lack of a better term. Since I routinely transfer files bigger than 4GB on a jumpdrive between Windows 7 and OSX I don't really have a choice but to use NTFS. I would rather use this than MacFuse/ntfs-3g since I think it is faster. When I write something to the drive and take it to the Windows 7 machine, the security on the newly written file is set to admin - I have to log in as the admin on the Win7 machine, right click and change the security settings. When I formatted the drive initially (on the Win7 machine), I set it for full control for everyone. Is there a way to force OSX to write the file with the same permissions as the drive?
How do I remove the account name (my name) from the top right hand side of my laptop screen in macOS X Lion. This is a privacy issue. I don't want people to see my name when I use the computer on a train or elsewhere in public.
I'm trying to get my wired mighty mouse working to my satisfaction but it wants to left click if I touch the mouse anywhere as far back as the apple logo. Thats a little far back for a left click so I'm doing it when I don't want to. Btw, I made the left button my primary button coming from a windows PC background. Also how to I reset everything in the mouse settings, I've changed alot of things.
I just purchased an Airport Extreme (802.11n) to replace my old Linksys router (so that I can have wifi). After I have everything installed, I went to Symantec's Security Check page and ShieldsUP! page to make sure my connection is secure.
To my horror, Symantec says that one of my ports is OPEN (ICMP Ping), while all others are CLOSED. In my limited understanding, this is definitely not the most desirable situation--not as good as my old Linksys, whose ports are all reported as STEALTH. ShieldsUP! just said that I failed because of the open ICMP port.
My questions are:
1. Is this the best Airport Extreme can do? 2. Am I safe? 3. Can I change any settings to make my network more secure?
I can't find much info from Apples' documentation and the Support website.
I have an older MacBook Pro running system 10.4.11. Yesterday, I started having strange trackpad behavior where it will sometime act as if I double-clicked when I only clicked once. So I'm highlighting everything until I double click again. Then, I sometimes have to double-click in places a single-click is supposed to work such as closing windows. I've rebooted, adjusted a trackpad settings and don't know what to do at this point.
how do I add the applications I have installed on my iMac into the Firewall? I click the plus sign and then navigate to the app that I use such as Plex and Hulu? To add them? Or do I open the apps up then click allow?

I've cleared the preference file and system prefs/spotlight caches with no luck. Repaired permissions.¬† It seems the Music icon is holding up the others. If I re-arrange them they break only after "Music."¬†This is in the console after opening the preference pane:¬†

Have just downloaded Adobe Flash and went to do permissions where I found the file "install_ flash_ player_ osx." and also the icon with "Flash Player" directly underneath.These are listed under the list of drives to select on left side of pane.†Is this normal? Do I need to do permissions? On HD?
I used to be able to use various shopping websites (Land's End, Nordstrom, etc.) without a problem. Recently I tightened the privacy and security settings on my computer and now these sites no longer work. I can access them, but when I go to choose a size or color, or put an item in my shopping cart, it doesn't work. Is this problem related to cookies, to plug-ins, to the firewall, to other browser settings? I changed a few different settings, so I'm not sure which change might be causing these and similar shopping websites not to work properly.¬†
