    I shut my computer off every night and reboot in the morning. I'm checking out the Mac Media store for refurbished computers, but I think I would rather upgrade to El Capitan for now as I can"t afford another computer. . I know the president of the Sun City Mac Computer Club. He said he could upgrade it for me. He helped me in the past. Maybe I'll join the club.

    I personally think joining a Mac User's Group or Club is a great idea. Lot's of talent and good ideas shared among members is always very helpful. Let us know how you get along.

    And be sure to join us when we move to our new location: www.mac-forums.org

    Also read the notice about the forums shutting down in the future.

    You're lucky to know such a fellow and by all means join their MUG (Mac User Group) club. Usually lots of resources, bargains, knowledge and just good socializing Mac folks and their company at such clubs.

    You might want to just let it sleep overnight for a change and let it do some of its maintenance that it would normally do at night. And no, it won't use any amount of electricity that you'd notice on any bill.

    I think I would rather upgrade to El Capitan for now as I can"t afford another computer.
    Good idea. But maybe keep your existing OS X volume in its own bootable partition.

    And check peripheral compatibility like printers and software.
    For software try this:

    I am using FireFox Quantum 58.0.2 bear in mind this is 64bit only and I is a vast improvement on FF 56 was a dog compared to this new version which is fast and much less of a resource hog than the older versions. I had been using Opera for a while there but Iím back to FF now.
    Still you have to use what suits your device. Opera is still a good alternative if you really donít like Safari.

    Iím a bit confused by this remark. When I go to Yahoo on any browser I have to log into my Yahoo Account in order to access my email (@yahoo.com) and my Yahoo home page. Only from there can I access My Yahoo settings. Exactly the same as Google and Microsoft home sites.
    If you have My Yahoo bookmarked as I do with my frequently visited sites usually the first thing you have to do is login unless you have ticked ďKeep me logged inĒ at some time.

    I just noticed that my Safari is out of date. It's 10.1.2. I went to the App Store and can't find it anywhere. Is this because 10.10.5 isn't being supported anymore? If I upgraded to El Capitan will my Safari upgrade also? Is there any way I can Upgrade it now?

    Yes, when you upgrade the OS, you will also get an upgraded Safari, and other included system software.

    Edit: to upgrade to El Capitan, see this Apple Support Document, https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206886.

    And about the only way to get an updated Safari version, and one of the advantages of using a third-party browser like Firefox, one can usually get a major updated version without having to up one's OS X version as well.

    PS:

    Thanks for this info Bob, and I didn't realize Apple had made that download available, but it does seem a bit limited to just a few users who qualify.

    I'm not sure it will actually work for the OP. Do you have any experience using it?
    This is what Apple says at the site:

    I am using FireFox Quantum 58.0.2

    Wow!! It seems like it was less than a week ago that I had updated my FF to v. 58.0.1, so I guess their v. 58.0.3 will be available any day now!!

    I sure can't deny that they don't do any frequent updates!!! But it does work well and sure seems fast. I'm still training myself to try and use tabs better that FF seems to prefer using.

    PS: I seem to be using it, FF, more and more as my Safari seems to continue doing goofy things, many of which I can't seem to get fixed regardless of resets and cache purging etc..

    Patrick, it was many years ago that I stopped using Safari and switched to Google Chrome. Around the time of Snow Leopard. That was because of two things: the layout (and I still don't like that) and the fact that Safari was not compatible with some online services such as my Taxation Office.
    I got so accustomed to Chrome's layout and tab management that I stuck with it until about 5 years back when I started looking for alternatives. I have tried all of the popular brands and some pretty obscure ones but none are like Safari. Most work in much the same way as Chrome but for now I have settled on FF because its interface is intuitive for me, it has enhanced privacy features and it works well across my iOS devices. There is no doubt that had I stuck with Safari way back I might still be using it. This is not a criticism of Safari just a matter of personal preference.
    Sorry this is a bit off topic.
    I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.
