    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    Sure enough! It never occurred to me to look there. Thanks.

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    My NeoOffice problem was solved when I discovered that when one of the tabs is dragged onto the desktop it remains there as a separate window. The New Finder Window command now opens a new window instead of a tab. That must have been a bug fix in either Mojave 10.14.2 or 10.14.3.

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    There's nothing about NeoOffice there, either. Well, there are preferences listed for NeoOffice-2, -3, and -4, but this version is 2017.15 Professional Edition. I did look through the NeoOffice-4 prefs anyway and found nothing about launch, open, New, or tabs.

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    One of the obvious first things to test with a problem like this is to try it in a different account, and it is also one of the things that I usually forget to do. I opened my Admin account and sure enough, in that account NeoOffice opens a new window instead of a tab. It is of course running...

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    Here is a screen shot of a Neo Office window. You can see the File pulldown offers New > Text Document and New > Spreadsheet. I opened a new spreadsheet followed by opening a new text document. The Neo Office window has two tabs, labeled at the top. In view is a blank text document...

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    NeoOffice has no support staff and, as far as I can find, no way to submit a bug report, which is kind of outrageous for a product that now charges rent. Neither are there any support forums that I can find. NeoOffice "Support" just suggests going to the Open Office or LibreOffice support...

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    Oops. I looked again and found it in Finder preferences. I had been looking in System Preferences because of the similar symptom in NeoOffice. Resetting the item in Finder Preferences fixed the Finder, but NeoOffice is still opening tabs instead of windows. I just went through all the...

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    As I said, I've looked for a setting like that but can't find it. Where is it?

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    iMac running Mojave 10.14.2. In both Finder and NeoOffice, command File => New Window opens a new tab instead of a new window. In NeoOffice, opening a new text file while in a spreadsheet opens the text in a tab and vice versa. File => New Tab works as expected in both apps. File => New...

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

    Little Snitch is a real pain when you first start using it. Browsers in particular need to reach many sites and you feel bombarded by pop-ups asking you to deny or permit links. Once past that phase, however, it is seldom heard from. I rarely block anything but what appear to be obvious ad...

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

    Problem solved, maybe. While lying awake unable to go to sleep last night, it came to me. Check the settings in Little Snitch. Sure enough, Little Snitch was denying any outgoing connections from both Firefox and Google Chrome. See attached screen grab. Little Snitch says there was a...

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

    Unfortunately, the OS update to 10.14.2 didn't work. Firefox and Google Chrome still can't find Web sites; Safari and Opera can. The update to 10.14.2 did, apparently, fix a different and less important problem, which may be related to the Firefox/Chrome problem. In Safari, sometimes the...

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

    The title says it all. I upgraded to MacOS Mojave and now neither Firefox nor Google Chrome can reach any Web site. Firefox says "Unable to Connect" and Chrome says "This site can't be reached". Safari and Opera don't have this problem. I have two user accounts on this iMac, one Standard for...

    iCloud Server rejecting my emails

    As Cheryl suggested I logged onto both of my Apple IDs in turn and confirmed that mail could be sent from both. Returned to Mail and there was no improvement. After some more fooling around with account settings, I achieved the configuration in the attached screen grab. And after I made the...

    iCloud Server rejecting my emails

    It sounds like the exact same problem. It has been intermittent and so I think I've solved it but then it recurs. This time around it's lasting several days so that's why I'm seeking help.

    iCloud Server rejecting my emails

    I have logged onto one of the addresses and sent mail, but that was only so I could get an email sent. I'll take your suggestion and systematically visit both Apple IDs.

    iCloud Server rejecting my emails

    I have been having trouble getting the Apple Mail app on the iMac to send. Everything had been working perfectly for months and then a couple of months ago for no reason the server started sometimes rejecting my outgoing emails. This was intermittent: most of the time it worked but then for a...

    Photos Sync Across Icloud Accounts

    Mac OS 10.13.2 on brand new iMac, and 10.13.1 on MacBook Pro mid 2009. I would like to sync the Photos library on my iMac with my wife's MacBook Pro. This library is already synched with my iPad via iCloud, both machines using the same iCloud account. My wife's MacBook is associated with her...
