    It will not go away. Softonic puts this crap-ware in any download from them. Looks like they have a new trick. You can try opening Notifications (the icon in the upper right corner of the screen with...

    If the drive is formatted NTFS, you'll need a third party driver to be able to write to it. You probably had one on the old iMac and haven't added it to the new. ParagonNTFS is the one I use.

    I noticed that the creation date on the plist is changing every day about the time I first open Safari. It could have gotten sorted that way, but as you say, not syncing is verrrrry strange. And the...

    I use AM all the time. You can stop the jumping by clicking on the title of the column to sort by the Process name. That works in all five tabs, but sort of diminishes the value most of the time. The...

    The "inProgress" message about needing an application is caused by the fact that TM labels the backup that is underway with the "inProgress" label temporarily, then changes it once the backup is...

    I did check the date on the plist as I was restoring from TM. It had been changed about 10 pm the night before I noticed the issue. But I had not added or edited any bookmarks, so there was no reason...
  9. Happy you got it sorted. I still think sharing an...

    Happy you got it sorted. I still think sharing an AppleID is not the best solution, but you have it set for you now so that's good.
  10. Yes, I restored to two days ago and all is good...

    Yes, I restored to two days ago and all is good for now. I looked at the Developer menu, nothing there about bookmarks at all. And it's random. Doesn't happen every night, or every week. Just...

    Nickyr, I have not ever wanted my bookmarks sorted alphabetically. So I have not ever installed anything to sort them. I'll have a look through to see if anything remotely looks like that. But it...

    It's AdBlock Plus, sorry for the confusion. I've had it for years, never had any issue with it. In the control panel it has permission to examine webpage contents for ads and it can see the browsing...

    Macintosh HD and Macintosh HD - Data are two volumes that Catalina creates and are both valid names and drives. And Catalina needs both. The Data drive has all of the user information and the other...

    Thanks, Charlie. I've tried to do research, but it seems to be that I'm the only person who has seen the behavior. Which tends to make it something I've done or installed, but I'm really stuck with...

    Yes, if you don't want the same messages on both. That's exactly why you are seeing the phenomenon. They are syncing through iCloud and the AppleID.
  16. Bizarre Bookmark Behavior in Safari

    Several times now, Safari bookmarks have "magically" sorted themselves into an alphabetical listing. It generally happens overnight, when the machine is idle, so it's not some accidental keypress. I...

    Nancy, your post was thoughtful and not emotional, which is a breath of fresh air. Thanks for that.

    Charlie gave your options, which are limited. But he didn't try to answer the final question...

    I re-cycled an older mini into a server for my home theater. It's "headless" but the TV acts as the monitor for it. Even if you don't have a theater, you could use it with your TV as a server fro...

    Harry, it's good to hear that you and your family are all well. The fires sound horrible.

    Reading through the most recent Etrecheck, I think reinstalling the OS is the best path. But I would recommend against using any backup to restore the applications. You can use Migration Assistant to...

    In addition to what Lifeisabeach said, there is also a listed recent installation of "Clean My Drive 2" which you don't need/want on your system.

    That is how it works. If you don't remember it, you might want to look into vitamin supplements to help that memory!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Like chscag, I cannot think of a reason for it to be doing what you are seeing. About all I can suggest is to set up for it to sync through iCloud, let it sync and then see...

    Let me be clear. The issue is not that some law was written to create this mess. It was a Supreme Court decision that changed the way the previous court decisions about taxing other states' citizens...

    @harryb2448, the difference is that our founding process was that 13 at-the-time-independent states, each of whom though of themselves as a "nation," bonded together for mutual defense and support,...
