    Well, I did it. What a pain in the a$$! Had to enter my system password MANY times. Of course, due to another of Apple's 'wisdom', I couldn't just drag to new folder (named My Utilities), as that only created aliases. :(. Had to drag to trash, and then to my new folder.

    System password

    I'm getting fed up with having to enter my password whenever adding or updating anything in Utilities folder. Do not have to do it in Applications folder. It's been this way for a long time, and I'm sooo tired of it. Anyway to correct, fix, or alter this??

    Upgrading my MacPro 3.1

    Why not just buy a cheap Windows laptop, and using your Mac solely as a Mac? It's too well setup to be wasted.

    With Mojave, Firefox & Chrome cannot access the Web; Safari & Opera Can

    FWIW, I consider myself pretty Mac savy. That being said, Little Snitch threw me for a loop! It is WAY overly complicated and not intuitive. I have dumped it in favor of a small, free app called Radio Silence. You might give it a try.

    Syncing bookmarks with iPad and Mac mini not happening

    Have you checked: On the iPad. Go to Settings->Safari->Favorites. Make sure Favorites is checked (or whatever sites or folder you choose) FWIW: My wife's MBP running OS 10.13.5 High Sierra runs Photoshop CS3 quite nicely. (I use Pixelmator)

    Is OS X a 128 bit Operating System?

    Techguy#2692, Did you notice that this thread in 17 years old??

    Hi Sierra Problem

    I take the 'fix' all back! My wife's MBP, all of a sudden, repaired itself about the same time mine did. Does Apple 'push' minor updates behind the scenes, without the App Store? No other explanation!!!
