  • Updated FireFox, restarted and now it will not open the browser, even if the icon does not appear in my taskbar. Was fine until the update last night. Win8.1 running

    When I move the mouse over the icon in the taskbar that appears after that I have I dbl-clicked on the icon on the desktop, you can see a miniature version of the browser open as usual, unfortunately, the browser will not open upward on the desktop. I've deleted and reinstalled several times. It has worked very well until I did the update last night.

    Machine features:
    8.1 to win
    16 GB of RAM
    3 video concerts
    Processor AMD FX-6200 6 3.80 Ghz
    64 bit

    Sometimes, a window is "off the screen" somehow. Often, you can force it to appear on the screen by right clicking on the thumbnail image just above the taskbar and choose expand. Does it work?

    A possible cause for this is that the file that stores the positions and sizes of window is corrupt.

    #1 method: If you can get a zoomed window:

    Open the settings folder (AKA Firefox profile) current Firefox help

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > troubleshooting information
    • (menu bar) Help > troubleshooting information
    • type or paste everything: in the address bar and press Enter

    In the first table of the page, click on the view file"" button. This should launch a new window that lists the various files and folders in Windows Explorer.

    Leave this window open, switch back to Firefox and output, either:

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    Pause while Firefox finishing its cleanup, then rename xulstore.json to something like xulstore.old. If you see a file named localstore.rdf, rename this to localstore.old.

    Launch Firefox back up again. Windows normally appear again?

    #2 method: If you can not get a Firefox window for all:

    Close Firefox by right clicking the icon in the taskbar > close all windows.

    Using the Run dialog box (windows key + R) or the search for the start bar menu (or perhaps 8.x for Windows search of charms bar bar?) type or paste the following and press ENTER to drill down to the profiles folder:

    %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
    

    Here you can see a folder - in this case, double-click that - or more than one case - in this case, double-click on in what looks like the most recently updated.

    Scroll down and rename xulstore.json to something like xulstore.old. If you see a file named localstore.rdf, rename this to localstore.old.

    Launch Firefox back up again. Windows normally appear again?

  • CCleaner, Malwarebytes does not open upward

    Original title: app will not open upward

    Hi, I have a hp laptop with win 7pro 32 bit. Some applications (like ccleaner, malwarebytes)... worked fine for a month or two... If I click on the application without window open until I tried to check with the... Task Manager process appears and disappears instantly... uninstalling and reinstalling don't work... any suggestions?

    Hi Vishalchandar,

    Thank you for your response.

    I suggest you to start your computer in safe mode and perform antivirus analysis.

    Step 1:

     

    Try to start the computer in safe mode.

    Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs do not work in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed.

    Start your computer in safe mode:

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/start-your-computer-in-safe-mode

     

    Step 2:

     

    Scan your computer by using the Microsoft Security Scanner by clicking Download now to check if there is no virus:

    http://www.microsoftsafetyscanner.com/

    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

  • Why my ipad air display does not freeze when I click on an e-mail link

    I have an Air of the Ipad, a little more than 12 months old.  Excellent summer without probs.  Very busy on a particular site, receive emails related to a particular site. Summer works well for a few hours, then I noticed when I clicked on an e-mail link the frozen screen, I closed and went directly to the site to respond via a message center, it worked well; I contacted the site directly and briefed them on the issue and they suggested that I deleted cache.and browsers ensure my machine has been configured to accept cookies. I tried both of these suggestions to resolve without result: can someone help me please.

    It is a known issue with 9.3. Currently, Apple knows about the issue but has yet to release a patch.

    Workarounds are the people see if the Opera browser or puffin can work for them. Or they can go into the settings, safari, advanced and disable javascript.

    For your mail, you can use a browser to access the account that could allow you to click on the links. (for example, I have yahoo, then I'd go to yahoo.com, sign here via the browser opera or puffins, and make any link that follows I do)

    Other people just have to wait for a fix to come and there is no time for when this will happen

    In WinMail go to tools | Accounts | Mail and check if the other account is there.  If so remove it and make sure you have the correct account as default.  Then go to control panel | Default programs | Associate a type of file or Protocol with a program and a page down to protocols and are looking for the Mailto and set default Winmail.

    You are not able to play songs torn on Windows Media Player 12. I'll be happy to help you with this problem.

    Method 1: I suggest you follow the steps to run the troubleshooter from the link and if it helps.
    Open the troubleshooting Windows Media Player settings Troubleshooter
     
    Open the troubleshooter in the Windows Media Player library
     
    Method 2: If the problem persists, I suggest you delete the database of Windows Media Player. To do this, follow these steps:
    (a) output Windows Media Player.
    (b) click Start, run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.
    (c), select all the 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.
    (d) restart Windows Media Player.
    Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.
    If this does not resolve the problem, disable the Windows Media Player database cache files. To do this, follow these steps:
    (a) output Windows Media Player.
    (b) click Start, click Run, type % LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft, and then click OK.
    (c) select the folder Media Player and then click on Delete on the file menu.

  • My address book is not open when I click the 'To' bar in an e-mail message.

    I've recently updated to Thunderbird 4.1.0. Since that time, my address book opens not when I try to send an email from the "To" or other lines. I have to open the address book and cut and paste the address manually. How can I reconnect the AddressBook for the e-mail program?

    I've never seen the address book open when you click on to. But maybe you are on that old one version that I have missed to see that. The latest version is 34.
    Open a window of writing and turn on the contact bar by pressing F9. That allows to process emails.
