  • Firefox has constantly loads with the message "This is awkward", but it is not crashing in advance? How can I fix it

    My problem started yesterday and I can't seem to fix the problem. Everytime I open firefox I am met with the annoying message of restoration, (it is usually boring, but because it happens every time I start firefox it really starts to bother me) even if I close all my tabs before hand, close firefox and then quit the program entirely. I can understand what happens if say that I force quit when I open tabs, but I'm not. And that too, has never been a problem before.

    I use Firefox 20.0 on my Mac, running 10.7.5 (Lion).

    I tried to uninstall/reinstall firefox.
    I also deleted the sessionstore.bak and .js files. This fix works first, the first time I open firefox, but did not subsequently.

    Also, I would rather not completely turn off restore, if possible, because I might actually need to get my data at any given time.

    I have three extensions on my browser: greasemonkey, Savior and Adblock tumblr more. Since I bought my computer 2 years ago, I had ABP on my browser. Greasemonkey and Savior of Tumblr I downloaded last night after this problem had already occurred.

    A possible cause can be that you first close all Firefox Windows and then close the Firefox application.

    Some noted that closing of Firefox (Firefox > Quit) while the browser window is always open works for them.

  • Why tell me that Bing is already installed, when it does not exist on my computer?

    I removed the Bing on my computer because I don't like it much. Given that Google has become such a useless piece of junk, I decided to re - install Bing, but whenever I try, I get the following message.
    Firefox could not install the plugin '' research as an engine with the same name already exists.
    This engine does not see any where on my computer with the exception of an XML file in Firefox/search engines. I deleted but it makes no difference. The files do not appear in Tools\addons, not in all: config. Please don't tell me that Firefox has become as useless as Google... I don't want to use IE.

    Bing must be installed as a default search engine (bing.xml in the folder searchplugins in the Firefox program folder)
    If the file is there and you can't see not in the search engines manage then click on the "Restore default settings" button to restore the default search engines.

    If this does not help, then delete the search.json file and a possible search.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.

  • My email says my email account already exists, but it will not be displayed

    I just upgraded to El Capitan and the e-mail program has deleted one of my emails.  Yahoo email is there but is not that of Cox.  He directs me to iCloud, but I can't find anything wrong.  The settings for Cox look right and I can send Cox and get it... I just can't get anything.

    I tried to rename the Mail account in the library by another post, but I always get the same answer that the mail account already exists, and he directs me to iCloud.  I look at account information and it says its offline so I go to preferences and this is not.  Frustrated by that!

    Also... this account indicates also his related to internet accounts and again, no matter what I try I can't start fresh... it's related to my iCloud.

  • WMP12 is constantly "retrieving media info for an unknown album", but I do not have strangers albums

    For as long as I can remember since I had Windows 7, WMP constantly said "Recovery media info for an unknown album" in the lower status bar. The only time wherever it's never going away when is actively an update of the library. Then once the update is complete, it will return to say "Recovery media info for an unknown album." I had assumed that maybe it was because I had a few albums that had no tags. I recently went through those and manually corrected the tags, so now I don't have any of the unknown artists or albums. Yet I still get the same status all the time. I noticed, though, that if I sort my library by the artist, all the way down it is 'Unknown' with 1 song under the heading 'other '. This can be read and nothing happens when I try to remove it.

    I also had problems with sometimes jumps and small pauses in the playback, especially of WMA files. As my computer needs to be powerful enough to play audio files smoothly even in multitasking, I wonder if WMP is constantly trying to update a non-existent album could cause these problems.

    I have a large music library (file ~ 18000). I use WMP exclusively because I have a large number of WMA files with DRM licenses and is one of the few players who can handle this. I also use WMP on my computer to play music over the radio show, so it is very important that I get rid of this glitchy reading.

    I use Windows 7 64 bit and WMP12 on a computer with processor dual core 2.53 GHZ and 4 GB of RAM. I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    Thank you

    Ben Russo

    Hi Ben,

    Trying to play or delete the file in the library nothing results. It seems that the Windows Media Player 12 library database is corrupted.
    We recommend that you clear the Windows Media Player database and check the result. To do this, try the following steps:
    a. Click Start, type run, click Run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.
    b. Select all files in the folder and then click on Delete on the file menu.
    Note: You don't have to remove the folders that are in this folder.
    c. restart Windows Media Player and check the result.
    Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

    For more information, see you can not remove the item from the Windows Media Player library (the steps are also applicable for Windows Media Player 12)
    See also Remove information about what you have played in Windows Media Player

  • Impossible to apply the 4.1 update 03 - things of server is already installed, but it is not

    I used PowerCLI for go OT update 02 03 on an ESXi Server 4.1 using localhost ooption. However, the powercli installation failure when upgrading the command ""Impossible to write data to the transport connection '. " Anyway, this isn't my problem...

    So, I gave up on this subject, copied files on a vmfs volume (because I see that VMware recommends not to make updates on the wire) and decided to use the faithful instead esxupdate. But now I get the error "jump ESXi410-Update03 newsletter; It is installed or made obsolete. "I had this feeling of sinking at the heart when I realized that chess ESXi updates don't do not restore updates failed of transactional way - or so it seems. (Even Windows gets this right!) :

    / usr/lib/ipkg # vmware - v

    VMware ESXi 4.1.0 build-502767 [it's the update 2]

    / usr/lib/ipkg # esxupdate query

    -Bulletin ID - installed - summary

    ESXi410-Update03 2013-07-20 T 07: 44:38 VMware ESXi 4.1 full update 3

    So, as you can see, the update did not, but esxupdate think has and refuses to let me try again - catch 22.

    I restarted the server that did not help. I read this: VMware KB: the esxupdate query command does not list the correct ballots after completing an update and made a syncdb. None helped.

    I'm looking for is a simple way to indicate to the server that in fact it is not Update03 (or to force an update - sort of "do it again even if you think that it is already installed - which is not"). However, I can't seem to find congratulate him on this.

    Can someone point me in the right direction please? TVM.

    Witout knowing exactly what happened and what was wrong, the following options should be considered with caution:

    • Return to the previous state by pressing SHIFT - R at the start of the ESXi host
    • Use vihostupdate instead esxupdate (which is only supported for ESX, ESXi and not)

  • Windows Live Mail always tells me I'm out of line, but I'm not.

    I continue to receive a pop-up window asking me if I would go online now, even if I'M online.  When I click on 'YES' (I want to go to the line), I just get the same pop window.  I can't use my Windows Live mailbox to send or receive e-mails.

    I tried the suggested Control Panel / uninstall a program / right click on Windows Live Essentials / select uninstall-change / clicked on repair all Windows Live programs.  End of "repair", he stated that all Windows Live programs had been repaired.  HOWEVER, the same problem exists when I try to open my Inbox mailbox.

    Open Internet Explorer, and then press Alt + F to open the file menu. If work offline is selected, deselect it. If it is not selected, select it, wait a few moments and then deselect. Now check if Windows Live Mail is still offline. If this is the case, repeat the cycle to select/deselect in IE until WLMail Gets the message.

    What version of Internet Explorer is installed? In Internet Explorer, press Alt - H has to do.
