    Download from icloud/photos only in HEIC format

    Just to clarify, (as you didn't ask a question)... Do you mean that if you upload a graphics file to your iCloud, when you choose to download that same file, it has been modified to HEIC, despite you knowing that the file you uploaded was in some other format? Are the HEIC files somehow not...

    Thunderbird profile folder

    What is the result if you change to a different font in thunderbird preferences? Not sure if I am helping. But, how about helping ME? My Thunderbird messge listing is white characters on dark grey (not black) background, and I cannot change it to the black characters on white that you show on...

    Thunderbird profile folder

    Can you be more specific about what you want to achieve? There ARE limited font settings in Thunderbird's preferences. What more do you need?

    Thunderbird profile folder

    OK Launch Thunderbird, click on Preferences, then Display, then Formatting, finally, Colors... Change something that will definitely modify Chrome, such as Unvisited Links color. That should force the Chrome file to change somewhere, then you just find it. Well, of course, I just tried it...

    Thunderbird profile folder

    I think you are correct. That xxxx(whatever) is a random name for the folder that Thunderbird creates for the user profile. You still have to find where Thunderbird makes that folder (not just make it yourself) I am not sure if Thunderbird will use some random name that you make up, and I'm not...

    Thunderbird profile folder

    Your changes worked the first time for me - thanks! (Makes my fonts TOO large in Thunderbird, but I did see that it worked.) If you used that path /Thunderbird/Profile/Chrome/ - that looks wrong. Try this: ~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/default/xxxxxxxx.slt/chrome/ (Obviously, change...

    3rd party apps....

    DiskWarrior works fine on SSDs. Not sure how you would have that idea. DW does NOT repair APFS formatted drives. Typically, those will be SSDs, but could be spinning hard drives, too. If you have Macs running macOS 10.13.6, or later, then the boot drive will normally be APFS format, making...

    3rd party apps....

    Free "helper" apps? sure... Onyx, TinkerTool, a few others that do a variety of tasks. All known good tools. Not sure if I would ever pay actual money for that, however. One exception to that - good disk directory tools, such as DiskWarrior, or Tech Tool Pro. There's a couple of others like...

    Thunderbird profile folder

    Are you certain that you are in the correct Library folder? I'm not sure how else to say this ... :cool: The Thunderbird folder won't be in the main Library, but you should see it in "your user folder"/ Library. The path to that location will be ~/Library. You can type that path, as is, in the...

    Thunderbird profile folder

    Look in your Library folder. There should be a folder named (surprisingly!) Thunderbird Your Library folder is the one in your user (home) folder that is normally hidden. Make it appear by holding Option while opening the "Go" menu in the finder. Select Library from that menu, and yours should...

    Official: Mojave Thread

    Which video connection are you using on your Viewsonic? I assume that you have been using HDMI, but have you tried switching to the VGA? (That might make the difference to show the overscan option)

    Official: Mojave Thread

    If you hold the Option key while clicking the "Scaled" button, you will see other resolution choices appear. (I don't know how to turn on the overscan setting, if it is not already showing)

    New Apps on download.com

    That seems to be correct. I don't like the change either, and even using the search window seldom provides any kind of response. I still call that site "Versiontracker", and don't really use it since that change. I look at that site every now and then, hoping it will become useful again, but I...

    Is it possible to mine bitcoin on mac

    Why rely on so-called rumors? All it takes is a quick search for "mining bitcoin on a Mac" You'll get a few useful responses, such as this. And, a fairly current article, here.

    Weird text box

    Ah, OK... You may have a USB-C port that is wearing out, so the plug does not fit as snugly as new. It's not really difficult to replace that port, which is only $30 or so. Being the only port on your MacBook, it's a bit more vulnerable. Battery is more expensive, but iFixit.com has good repair...

    Weird text box

    Your "character menu" should be one that responds to a deep touch on the trackpad. That means a (correct) response to pressing the trackpad And your last post about intermittent movement, such as when selecting a file, might also mean that the trackpad is just not responding correctly...

    Weird text box

    That's the alternate character selector. In your example, that allows you to easily change the accent that is applied to a character. Not sure what Apple calls it, but it's a setting on your system. I don't have a newer Mac laptop, but I an pretty sure that is a setting for force touch in the...

    Herve's Smoking Lounge

    (pretending not to notice this thread died completely more than 16 years ago - before vaping was even a thing, and def not noticing that even the "innocent" vape has found its way into the world of bad health results (and likely can be considered a sin, or, at least, a great annoyance)
