Firefox on the Mac

How do I get the updated Firefox (3.0.3) I just installed on my Mac to be usable by other users of the computer. When my wife logs on under her user name, she only can access the earlier installed version.

When you install software to share on different accounts make sure you are the admin when installing and others can use it. If both accounts have admin rights then you will have to do each one. To make that easier just put the DMG image in the public folder and you wont need to download it again.

Even though the download says "allows all users" your wife's user account is completely separate from yours. You will have to download Firefox in your wife's account.

We have two facebook accounts one for me and one for my wife, so when I try to open mine always appear my wife,s instead. please tell me what can I do to have easy acces to my account.


You can set up a different browser for each user and stay logged in on each browser. For instance, you use Firefox and your wife uses Google Chrome, and each browser saves your personal settings. Or just log out of your wife's and log into yours.

Changing users on same computer


If you want to change Facebook user accounts on the same computer, you can do one of three things:

1) Simply click on Account and Logout, then log in with the new user.

2) Use a different browser, like Firefox, so that the first user doesn't need to log out before the second user can log in - the second user simply opens the Internet in Firefox instead.

3) Create a new Windows user account. The second user would then log out of the first person's Windows account and log in to their own and open Facebook there.

My mac will not let me log on!


Step 1: Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD. macosx-dvd.pngThis hardest part of this technique may be laying your hands on a Mac OS X Install CD when you need one. Use a version that is close the the version of Mac OS X you have installed.
Hold the C key as the computer starts to boot from the CD.
When the installer starts, choose your language, and you'll proceed to the welcome dialog.
Step 2: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu. resetpw-utilitymenu.jpg Tip: In previous versions of Mac OS X (10.2 and 10.3), you can find the Resent Password option under the Installer menu instead.
Step 3: Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume. resetpw-reset.jpg Select the user name of your original administrator account.
Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
Enter your new password. Click Save.

There are a few ways to do this.
Method 1 Create a new user account, making sure to give the user Admin access. Once you create this new user, log into the new user account and delete the old user. This is the quickest and easiest way(this works best with 10.5, if you're running 10.4 or earlier try method 2.)
Method 2 Take the install disc and reboot your computer with the disk in the drive. On start up, hold the "c" button. Now you can re-install the operating so you can have a clean start. (if you don't have the install dvd, refer to Method 3)
Method 3 Delete all the unnecessary applications, once done create a new user with admin privileges. Log in with this account and delete the old account. This way you won't have any of the programs you don't want and the new user will have factory account settings. As close as you can get to a fresh start.
No matter what method you choose, be sure to back up important information.

Since update I can not access add/remove, downloads, Firefox, or help on ubuntu OS.


I have never heard of this til now. It might be a stuck package? You can try booting into recovery mode by hitting the esc key at boot time and selecting the top line that ends in "recovery mode" then af the next menu select "fix broken packages". Did you have Firefox 2 and 3 installed or just one of them? Is Firefox running in gnome system monitor after you start it and maybe just not showing the window? The only other thing I can think of to try would be to make a new user and log into that user and try it.
