OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Firefox 13 Unchecks Itself In The Parental Controls' List Of Allowed Applications?

Jul 2, 2012

Seems to be Firefox related, but I think it simply should not be possible within the Mac OS (10.6.8): I have used Firefox for years, but since I updated to version 13, this is what happens: My son has an account under parental control, and he is allowed to use selected applications one of which is Firefox  Now after the update every time he launches Firefox, he gets a message he is not allowed to use it. Even when I enter my name and password to permit Firefox "forever" to launch, the message comes again... And again. If I select "once", Firefox launches.

And no matter what I try, as soon as there was one attempt to launch Firefox on my son's account, the related checkbox in the Parental Controls is unchecked again. So what is going on here? Could this be caused by a corrupted file (maybe containing the list of allowed applications), and how could I repair that?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Parental Controls On 10.5?

Feb 23, 2012

I am trying to set up parental controls on my OS 10.5 operating system, on a Mac I have owned for quite a few years. I set up my own account name when  first bought the computer.  I want to make sure that my computer cannot be used by anyone else.  How do I go about doing that?  (I made another account name today because my computer said I had to make another account name, that I could not make the administrator name into the account name using parental control.  I didn't do anything with the new account name because the instructions on the screen got to confusing.)

MacBook Pro :: Limiting Applications In Parental Controls?

Sep 1, 2014

I set up a new user account for my daughter on my computer, an account running Simple Finder. I would like to restrict all applications, except one, because this is for homework.  

When I specify the application that is allowed in the parental controls, and then attempt to open it from her applications folder I get the message "You do not have permission..." I tried putting the application in the Shared Folder but that did not change anything.

OS X :: Always Allow In Parental Controls - How To Reverse

Feb 12, 2008

I have my daughter's accounts setup with parental controls (she's 9). I use the Parental Controls to limit the apps that she has access to so she does not get into trouble with applications that she should not be using.

I was working in my daughter's accounts the other day and I accessed the "System Preferences" application. Because this was one of the applications that I blocked, I was prompted (something to the effect of): This application is blocked by parental controls do you want to "Always Allow access", "Allow Access One Time", "Cancel"

I selected "Always allow" by accident. Now, when I go into parental controls, the "System Preferences" box is still unchecked, indicating that it should not be accessible by my daughter - but, when I go into my daughter's account, she has free/clear access to system preferences. I've tried checking and unchecking the Systems Preferences in parental controls, but it does not block access.

OS X :: Parental Controls Bypass?

Feb 16, 2009

I noticed that my in-laws 13-year old kid spends all his time glued to their iMac. I know that his user-account has parental controls enabled, and his computer-time is limited. I talked with him about it, and he mentioned that "Those time-limits are useless, since I can easily bypass them". He wouldn't tell me how he does it, though.

So, how could he bypass the controls? I'm asking because I would like to be able to plug that hole (if possible), so he would do something else than sit by the computer all the time.

"Discussing" the matter with a frigging 13-year old who thinks he knows everything is next to useless.

Alternatively: is there a third-party parenting-app that would offer more robust features that the OS X built-in toold do?

OS X :: Parental Controls In 10.4 - How Easy Is It To Get Around Them

Feb 24, 2009

I have a 13-year old son on an iBook running 10.4. Due to various internet and chat room issues which I won't go into here, I've had to add myself as an administrator on his computer and activate parental controls on his user account. His new goal in life now is to figure out how to circumvent them.

It seems like it shouldn't be possible . . . but then again, nothing is impossible. How concerned do I need to be?

Hardware :: Using Router With Parental Controls?

Jan 24, 2009

Is there a wireless router out there that could have the admin computer control the software and select parental controls, etc. and have it control the content of pc or apple laptops in my home without installing software on those computers?

For instance, a friend of my child comes over with a laptop and spends the night. Could the wireless content be filtered on his computer as well as my familys?

Software :: How To Obtain Parental Controls

Dec 14, 2009

I'm trying to reuse an old imac (800 mhz G4 PPC 512 mb). It has 10.3.9 installed. I had hoped to install Leopard so I could use its built-in parental controls. Unfortunately the machine is 67 mhz too slow, and Leopard won't install. Anyone have ideas about how to obtain the same type of parental controls (auto logout at a certain time, no access during specified hours, etc) with a software solution?

Intel Mac :: Parental Controls Do Not Work?

Jun 8, 2012

We use both an iMac w/snow leopard and a mac mini with Lion.  Whenever I configure parental controls to allow certain applications by checking the boxes, also the Dashboard widget (tea timer particularly to have kids keep track of time allowed), I have had issues with Firefox not working for them, although checked, as well as Safari which also was checked.  The widget also checked would not allow it.  All the apps they want to use has a warning sign that the administrator does not allow use (though it was previously allowed).  Then when we enter the administrator password to allow use all the time, the same box keeps popping up despite using the correct login and password and never gets to the parental control window.  So I check use just once and it allows it but never allows it to use always.  It also would allow Safari after having to sign into parental controls again (even though it was checked in the first place) but it would not allow Firefox at all.  There was a point in time (during earliest use) when it was working, and though the parental controls were thereafter modified, once you modify 1 user, it seems to uncheck some apps for the other so we have to recheck the other acct.  Basically, parental controls do not work.

MacBook :: Turn Off Parental Controls On It?

Jun 29, 2012

I was running a movie from netflix, and it stopped, giving an error code. Netflix said it was an error because parental controls were turned on on my computer, not in my Netflix preference settings. I didn't know I had parental controls on my computer! And I was watching an old prime time television show that should not have caused a parental control shutdown anyway.

I set up parental controls on my daughters MacBook Pro running Mavericks limiting Messaging to only a few select people and their email accounts.  When I logged into her desktop to test it, I opened Messaging and typed in my cell phone number, which is not on the "allowed contact list" and the message was delivered.  I only want her to be able to message people on the "allowed list".

Windows On Mac :: Setting Up VirtualBox And Parental Controls?

Feb 13, 2010

I've set up an account for my kids to use and also have VirtualBox installed on my account.

The kids have an educational program that only runs under Windows and I would like to give them access to it but not to the rest of VB. Is there any way I can do this?

I've thought of perhaps creating a new VB disk just for them but I can't see how I could restrict them from then opening up other VB disks that I don't want to give them access to.

OS X :: Using Parental Controls - Setting Websites Permissions

Feb 15, 2010

I'm in the process of picking out a new imac for myself and will pass on my old one to my six year old daughter as soon as I upgrade the ram and install snow leopard. Now that she can read and get on the computer on her own, can someone give me a few quick pointers on making my computer a little more safe for her. Meaning: are there parental controls in snow leopard or safari that would block adult websites. I don't even know if they rate sites like tv shows and if its even possible to block any part of the internet.

12 yr old has managed to find the password I set up to activate parental controls and limit his browsing. He claims to have been able to confirm the password once he had accessed system preferences in my administrator account which I had foolishly left open.

MacBook Air :: Way To Exclude Printing From Parental Controls

Sep 3, 2014

I have set parental controls for my daughter's laptop and I'm finding them a little too controlling!  In particular, it requires my consent for accessing our wifi home printer (not a problem, I've approved that) but then also for the printer at her school. Other than turning off controls for a day to allow her to get authorized for whatever printers they have at the school, and hoping that the authorization will last, is there a way to exclude printing from the parental controls in the first place?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Connecting To Http Proxy Under Parental Controls

Jun 7, 2012

Ive been looking for a couple of days for a fix for this. The issue im having is running parental controls on an account (any settings enabled/disabled, even with no web access permissions) and using a proxy (http, https, ftp) to connect to the internet. Connected as a standard/administrator user I can connect to the internet fine, but as soon as parental controls are enabled i cannot. I can't even connect to a local address without an error in the browser. 

I have tried this on multiple lion computers with the same outcome.  

The error im getting is: 

Chrome: is no data received, no server data was sent.Error 324 

Firefox is the default connection was reset error 

And safari dosen't even give an error just a white screen. And external programs don't seem to work. The computer is 100% uptodate.
