  • The routine of bookmarks says restoration places.sqlite is a file not supported

    I have a new laptop. I have the hard drive from my previous machine which I can read again. I followed the instructions in the help pages to restore the Favorites, sailing to places.sqlite. The wizard said this file not supported, so I couldn't further.

  • sort order doesn't work is not in the library module

    Hi, I shoot events with 2 different cameras, using a pool to the other and back dozens of times switching.  When I come home, I import the maps of two cameras in Lightroom. In the library module, the small previews on the bottom sort by chronological order of capture OF the CAMERA.  meaning that it shows all the photos sorted by capture of the camera one time and then all the photos, sorted by the time form camera capture 2.  I have many, many would prefer if the form of photos, both sorted cameras sort by ABSOLUTE capture time, not a single camera, then another.  In the library module, select view/sort/capture time but it just doesn't work.  any help?

    Thank you

    Triple - make sure that the camera clocks have been set at the same period.

    The best way to do that is to display the date of capture under the thumbnails mode grid library. In the library, view > Display Options and set the low label or the top of the Compact cell Extras to capture Date/time. Then set View > grid view Style > Compact cells.

    Then view > sort > time capture. Look closely at the date/time under thumbnails and pay attention to the AM/PM (if you are in a country with 12-hour formats).  The date/time by strictly ascending order?

    If they are not strictly ascending, thanks for posting a screenshot of high resolution of your entire window of LR showing the problem.

  • Cannot restore bookmarks. "Unable to process the backup file." I tried all of the solutions that I can find online.

    I am under W7 and 14.01 FF. My FF admin account works fine. My work account has problems. In the past I was able to get the bookmarks to return but not this time.

    The favorites were there yesterday morning and disappeared in the afternoon. Nothing has changed between the AM and PM to my knowledge. I tried every solution that I could find online but still no bookmarks.

    Problems with bookmarks and history does not properly can be caused by a corrupted database places.sqlite file.

    Also, make sure that the backup has the correct file extension (.json to restore a JSON backup).

  • "Bookmark all tabs" doesn't work anymore.

    Right-clicking on a tab and selecting ' bookmark all tabs... ". ' is no longer adds all tabs in a window to my favorites. Instead, it creates an empty folder called "[new folder]" under "Bookmarks Menu".

    I already have FIrefox Version 39.something.something. There is a "Location" field in the "New bookmark" window that I don't recognize; I guess that's the part of the 40.0.2 update.

    This seems to be a problem with Firefox 40 and Tab Mix Plus. If you press Ctrl + Shift + d to call bookmark all tabs, you get the normal dialog box (two lines), or even the wrong one?

  • Pavilion g6 2301AX: System Restore doesn't work is not on the new HARD drive

    My factory installed HGST HDD is not short DST check, so I bought new internal HDD of WD5000LPCX. I did the recovery DVD windows 8 long ago and tested several times.

    The problem, I do face is, after I ran the system recovery (insert all 5 DVD then restarts Recovery Manager), I get the error "No found bootable media" when the legacy support is disbled. On activation of legacy support, begins the phase of installation of driver, but after a while, my laptop is stuck in a reboot loop. I left it for half an hour but he kept just reboot.

    Guarantee of the laptop is long gone. New installation of Windows 7 has worked well, showing everything goes well with the material, but I want my Windows 8. Help.

    He resolved myself: had to convert the GPT MBR partitioning system.

    As this community seems inactive, I'll post like how to convert to GPT:

    NOTE: You will need any installation of Windows DVD for this. I used Windows 7 DVD.

    1. first activate the legacy from BIOS support. (Press F10 to enter the BIOS settings)

    2. Insert the Windows installation DVD, and then press F9 to change startup options. Boot from the CD/DVD drive.

    3. once the loads of installation, select the "Repair Windows" option, located at the lower left corner.

    4. find the command prompt and run these commands:







    5 reset. Disable the legacy from BIOS support. Now the recovery system will work without any problem.

  • my system restore does not work I get a screen white how fix this?

    do not know why it does this

    Do you mean your restore page of the system restore just says calendar system in the title bar and the calendar is just a blank white screen?

    Looks like your file jscript.dll became somehow not registered so you can re-record it.

    There are probably a few other things that do not work you know yet, so fix them all at once.

    Re-registration of these DLLs is correct, even if they do not need renewal.  You can also re-register the dll before the scans that can solve the problem, but the scans are always recommended.

    Click Start, run, and in the box enter orders following one at a time.  Click the OK button to execute each command one at a time.

    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript .dll
    regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll (it's a look of slash)

    The last order for mshtml load the DLL but can also contain a harmless warning depending on your environment.

    Check your system restore calendar now.

    The symptom of the problem of fixing and fixing the problem are two different things.

    System Restore is a frequent target of attacks by malicious software.  If SR was working before and is now afflicted, run some scans and then fix any problems.

    Remember that the system restore is not a time machine.

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MMFA):
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    If sfc/scannow solves your problems, I'll send you (or your charitable organization preferred) $10 American.

    Please note that I did have to send $10 to anyone, ever.

    during boot, or perhaps in Safe Mode

    Assuming that your keyboard works during boot (and it should; trying to tap F8 to access Advanced Boot Options Menu), probably the simplest method would be to make a Hiren Boot CD, boot from it and use one of the many included tools.  I have not experienced with your particular situation, so I can not tell you what tools will be or will work for you, but my guess is that USBDeView might work.

    Thanks for all the help. Seems that there is no easy 'reset' for bad hardware configurations.

    However, I dug to the bottom of my Lac 'tech' and found a USB-to-PS/2 adapter, which allowed me to use the USB mouse into the PS/2 port and reactivate my USB ports.

    All is well now.

    Thank you all for your answers!

    Hi Hector.

    1. what version of Windows operating system is installed on your computer?

    2. you use software to perform the system backup and restore?

    3 is the issue limited to any particular file?

    First of all, I suggest you click with the right button on the backup files and check the size of the file in the Properties window.

    Try to copy and paste the files to the computer and check if you are able to access the files.

    You can also check if the folders are hidden. If the folders are hidden, so you can view folders and check if you are able to access the data.

    1. press the ALT key on the keyboard in any Windows Explorer window to display the toolbar.
    2. click on tools, then Options of folders, and then on the view tab.
    3. then choose "show files and folders". After clicking OK, they appear with the other files.

    Hope that the information provided is useful.

  • Restoration of the backup files is not HD

    Microsoft window came up with message that my HD was 'BAD', and I have to back up the files and replace HD.  I chose the option to back up all the files on a flash drive.
