    Anti-malware software in general for macOS is unnecessary; add needless overhead on your system; and can cause problems of their own. macOS already has built-in malware protection called XProtect,...

    I normally use Safari on my iPad during my downtime at work and have no problems logging in. I didn’t have the app but just downloaded it and logged in no problem. I was able to fill in my...

    Ditto to Ian's recommendation. I've never used PDFpen myself, but I've long been under the impression that it's the gold standard for PDF editing on macOS. It's not inexpensive, but if this is...

    I would have to guess some kind of issue with a cache (icon, system, safari, user?). Not sure where exactly to start. If restarting Safari or the Mac itself doesn't fix it, running Onyx' tools should...

    As a troubleshooting step, try disabling Safari in your iCloud sync settings, then re-enable it. Maybe even sign out of iCloud and back in on each of your Macs/iDevices.

    Download DetectX (see link in my signature). It's proving to be very effective so far for some members here. Let us know how it works out. It's free to use for home use. I don't recommend...

    Yes. Presumably something is loading on startup and since it could be coming from one of a few different places, Etrecheck can list them all. I don't recall how thorough the free version of the app...

    The plist on my Macs show the creation and modification date/time being the same on each machine. I mean each machine may be different, but the 2 stats are always identical on each individual one.

    Softonic most certainly is not a part of iTunes. You may have some adware on your system. Download DetectX (see my signature) and see what it turns up. It's free to use for home users.

    There have been reports of people who needed to roll back to Mojave when Catalina didn't work out for them, but couldn't use their Time Machine backup. Catalina is doing something different with Time...

    I just took a look at the create/modify times of my bookmarks plist and on my MacBook Air, it correlates to today @ 6:28a, the time I woke my MBA up from sleep and hopped on the internet. I then took...

    I have to say I'm not a big fan of the butterfly keyboard that my MacBook Air has and that the 2018 MacBook Pro you are looking at would have, and I especially hate the design of the arrow key...

    Yeah, this is so wrong. Besides the fact that the OP's iMac is only 2 months' old (not "a few years"), I and many of us here can attest (as chscag already has) that these normally hold up just fine...

    We use iFinance here, mainly because it has a companion iOS app available that it can be synced to. So, if you use your debit card while out and about, you can input your transactions on your iPhone,...

    It must be a macOS Vista thing. :giggle

    FYI, just for laughs, I made a test bookmarks folder and after it synced, I sorted it by name, and the sorting synced to my iDevices. So yeah, this is...

    Yeah, it doesn't sound like something any of them would be doing. It doesn't sound like something anything other than something designed to do this specifically should be doing, yet here we are....

    It stands to reason "something" is loaded on your system that is causing this, of course. My first thought would be maybe your extensions aren't playing nice with each other or something, but if it's...

    The nice thing about using Logitech's keyboard and mice with their Unifying Receiver is that the Mac sees them as a wired device. I ran into an issue when I enabled Firevault on my wife's Mac mini...

    I don't know what this it. That's just... odd. Some brief googling suggests it's a firewall or something, but I don't know what the purpose or need is, especially since macOS has a firewall already....
