    Ok, Keith, let me try again. Take the screenshot (or you can use the ones you already have), but don't click on the small window. It will eventually disappear. It's only there for you to be able to...

    Your local hardware store may have what is called an "easy out" tool. Basically, it is a reversed thread screw type thing that tightens up as you turn it in the unscrewing direction. You will need a...

    What have you tried already, so that we don't suggest stuff you have already tried? Checked email account settings? Called the email provider to see if there is an issue on their end? Rebooted?...

    I'm going to let this drop and blame it on a cosmic ray. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    On Softonic: Softonic is a website that aggregates apps for downloading. No harm in that, it's a useful service. However, Softonic, like a few other aggregators, adds its own crapware to the download...

    Keith, the screenshots are not showing. To post a screenshot, click on the little icon that looks like a window:

    30974

    When you do that, this will open up:
    30975
    Now, the click on the...

    There is an app called "Over" that lets you customize any image that can then be made the wallpaper on the home screen. You can add the contact information and it will be displayed on the screen, but...

    Now the plist is dated at 2:14 today, which is about the time I woke it up and launched Safari. So maybe it's timed to that? It did NOT sort, just opened as it was when I last looked about 10 am.

    Just rebooted. Plist creation date still shows 8:02 AM, so it didn't update on boot, nor on Safari launch.

    Charlie, my system is creating the plist every day, as you said. Even without a reboot. And not at the time I open Safari, either. Today's opening was at 8:02AM, when the system was asleep. I got on...

    Keith, none of this has anything to do with what the message links into. Netflix is fine. Keep watching Shaun. (I love that animation!) What Softonic is doing is grabbing random bit and pieces and...

    Here is what Finder shows for it:
    30971

    From that, it was created this morning.

    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...

    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.

    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...
