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.

Only 1/3 of the computer screen is usable the other 2/3 has lines and the mouse only works on the 1/3 so I can't log on, What can I do?


Hello,

Try pressing on F8 once it's starting up to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode and hit enter. If you see the same problem inside safe mode then you need to replace the monitor of your computer. If you don't see it in safe mode, then you just need to update the video driver of your computer. You can use RadarSync to scan and update the drivers.

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.

Connection/login error


Try out the following 3 options :

1. Clear out history,cookies and cache
After doing this if it still doesnt work
please go to the next step,

2. Update internet explorer to the latest version i.e. IE8 from :
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

or you can use firefox by downloading and installing from :
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

If this doesnt work go to step 3

3.Create a new user account by going to control panel - user accounts in Vista and give it administrator rights. In winxp its almost similar or you can follow this url to guide you through it :
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/winxp/accounts.mspx

Of course when you use a new account you will have new desktop settings,browser settings , document folders etc. Check if you can log into facebook on the browser of the new account.

Wont start up completly


there is the single user start-up, which you were thinking of. There is also a safe-boot for macs.

To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:

1. Be sure the computer is shut down.
2. Press the power button.
3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before.
4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).

During startup in Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you will see "Safe Boot" on the login window, which appears even if you normally log in automatically.

During startup in Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.3.9, you will see "Safe Boot" on the Mac OS X startup screen.

To leave Safe Mode in any version of Mac OS X, restart the computer normally, without holding any keys during startup.

Master reset mac pro


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.
