    Hello
    Recently, if I send a big PDF file via outlook, after attempting to send the files, I get an error message saying that the mail has not been sent. The files remain in the Outbox, but when I check with the recipient, they confirm that they have received the mail! This has only recently begun to happen. Any suggestions? Thank you

  • I said that I have to install Chrome to place an order at Walmart. What should the Chrome that Firefox does not work?

    I have placed several orders of Wal-Mart before today using Firefox without any problems. But today, nothing but problems. I tried for more than 4 hours, get this order to cross. I told cat line of Walmart and told me that I have to install Chrome to place an order. They don't answer when I asked if Walmart belonging to Chrome.

    I deleted the cookies and cache and restarted but none of this has worked. While Chrome has that Firefox does not work? I tried Chrome before and he hated and had a devil of a time he get off my computer. I don't want to go there again.

    I have attached a copy of the message that I get seems to indicate that it is a problem within Wal-Mart, but I said that it was with my browser.

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and using Firefox 40.0.3.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply. I just figured out the problem.

    All started when I tried to pay my order at 13:00 this afternoon. I am persistent and don't give up easily. Five hours later, I found an error in their programming, which allowed me to add an item to my shopping cart that was a purchase in store only. But then when I went to pay for it, he became confused and wouldn't let me order but didn't tell me why.

    I solved by moving all items in the basket to saved for later and then add one at a time, trying to get to the car after each addition. It took a while because there are 20 items. He had the same problem when I added the item in the store to the cart and tried to pay for it. So I deleted and purchased on Ebay.

    Now I know probably as much if not more than any of their populations of the Chat line that can only be read on a book script.

    It's a relief that I don't have to use Chrome. I really like Firefox and would not change.

    Specific advice Apple seem to be uninstall QuickTime, it should no longer be necessary and has a few potential security vulnerabilities. See Uninstall QuickTime 7 for Windows - Apple Support.

    Assuming that you have a 64 bit system, this facility expected to be compatible. For general advice, see troubleshooting problems with iTunes for Windows updates. More information area has direct links with the current and recent if you have problems to download, need to install an older version , or want to try the version of iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) as a workaround for problems with installation or operation, or compatibility with third-party software.

  • Why Firefox does not work with Hotmail more?

    Hotmail opens but I can't click on anything whatsoever, can not open e-mails or open folders.

    Hello

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily disables hardware acceleration, restores some settings and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • Click on the menu button , click Help , and then select restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox does not work, you can start Firefox in Mode safe as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the problem is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps described in the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    If Safe Mode did not help, delete all references to Hotmail, as described under the heading "How to remove a single website to my story?" in this article - delete navigation, search and download history on Firefox, then try again the site (not related to an old favorite). Note: It may take a few minutes to complete the removal.

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. This might help others with the same problem. Thank you!

    4. in the drop-down menu that appears, click the "Run as Administrator" option

    5. If you have the User Account Control (UAC) enabled, you will be asked permission before the opening of the command line. You simply press the button continue if you are the administrator or insert password etc.

    6. in the command prompt window, type: sfc/scannow then press enter

    7. a message is displayed to indicate that "the analysis of the system will start.

    8. be patient because the analysis may take some time

    9. If all files must be replaced, SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your DVD of Windows Vista/Windows 7 for this process to continue

    10. If all goes although you should, after the analysis, see the following message "Windows resource protection not found any breach of integrity.
