Not Getting Graphics Rendered Inside Mozilla Firefox

Dec 10, 2015

I just did a "reset" of Windows 10 on a previously owned PC that was given to me. It seems to have worked fairly well at cleaning up and re-installing windows 10. The first thing I did was download and install Mozilla firefox 42.0 web browser because that's the browser I'm most familiar with using. I also switch my Windows settings to "high contrast" because I have vision problems. Everything seems to work fine except in the firefox browser when I go to certain web-pages the graphics on some web-pages aren't rendering at all, and all I get are large blank spaces where there should be graphics instead.

Unwanted (My Computer) Icon In Notification Area On Startup

Jan 24, 2016

Every time I start up my computer, the attached icon appears in the notification tray. If I click on it, it opens up My Computer and the icon disappears. If I don't click on it, then my taskbar will not auto-hide as I want it to. The icon does not appear in the hidden notification icons or n the 'startup' tab of Task Manager, so I can't remove it. How to permenently remove it so it doesn't appear on startup?

Apps :: Unwanted Photo Album

Jan 21, 2016

My wife has a Win7 desktop machine that she uses for stuff brought home from work, but also keeps a collection of photos that she posts to Facebook, etc.

Rather than let her deal with any fallout from an automatic Win10 upgrade While I wasn't around, I did it manually myself from a 1511 ISO. Apart from failing to carry over the installed Intel HD Graphics drivers (a common occurrence), things went fine.

Last night she was using the machine, and paused for dinner while writing a lecture. From the other room we heard several barrages of musical chimes coming from the office. Each time I ran into her workroom and saw nothing new on the screen.

After the 5th volley, I looked more closely; checking the notifications icon in the systray, and noticed that it had flagged new notifications. What were they? "Look at the photo album I created for you!!!". Five times. Geez.

How to turn off this behavior, delete the "automatic" and unwanted albums, and prevent this from happening again?

Customization :: Removing Unwanted Apps From All PCs?

Feb 19, 2016

We're looking at using Windows 10 at our school. I've got a few for testing. One of the things I'm trying to figure out how to do is remove things like the XBOX tile. Things we don't want students in during a class etc. Anyway I can't seem to find a way of removing them. I've found several pages listing powershell commands but they don't work. At least not for the xbox tile. Also I need a way of doing this for all PC's group policy or registry so I don't have to do it one by one.

Blank Screen After Startup - No Login - No Mouse Pointer

Oct 27, 2015

Switched on a friend's PC today with Windows 10 fully updated (upgraded from Windows 7 around a month ago), and it loads to where the login screen should be ie after the Windows 10 logo etc, but then the screen is blank. There's no mouse pointer, no login screen, and no monitor error (ie there's a source at least).

I've tried booting in safe mode but I get the exact same problem. Also I've tried just typing in the password to see if the login screen has been moved to a non existent monitor, but that doesn't work either.

Installation :: Mozilla Lost Bookmarks And Passwords After Upgrade

Aug 4, 2015

losing all their bookmarks and their password database when they restarted Firefox after the update from Windows 7 (or any other version) -> Windows 10??

Yes, did create system image but did not preserve C:users (-> U:) *. Even the old folder no longer had my bookmarks, and moving the old passwd and master key file did not allow Moz to figure it out.**

* I don't want users on my SSD drive -- I add/delete stuff WAYYY too often, so it sits on a spinny drive and is connected via a junction point.

** electronic god(desse)s for even a 7-month-old backup, so I didn't lose that much in terms of moz config.

Browser/Email :: Mozilla 41.0.1 Running Slow - Lots Of Disk Activity

Oct 13, 2015

After launching Mozilla hard disk activity seems to be permanently on, as if Mozilla where reindexing or something. It takes a long time (10-20 minutes) to stop and it makes browsing a very jerking experience. Of course I did a clean install to rule out some corrupted installation but no dice.

Launching Resource Monitor shows that all disk activity is being done by Mozilla FF and Windows Defender (Firefox being the first candidate).

Apps :: Programs Won't Add To Startup

Feb 10, 2016

I was having some issues with my previous build (Insider), and hard disk crashing, I went and did a full wipe and a clean install.

Unfortunately, some of my programs refuse to add to startup even when the "Start with Windows" option is checked. I've tried completely removing the programs and re-installing and they simply will not start with Windows like they should.

Aside from manually overriding the situation, (which is a workaround, and not a fix), how to resolve this?

Apps :: EXE In Startup Folder Not Running

Oct 29, 2015

I wrote a program that runs on windows 10 just fine from a shortcut on the desktop. I copied the shortcut to the startup folder for my account and did all the compatibility changes so it would run. It worked fine after a few test startups but now all the sudden it no longer works.

Not sure if MS installed any updates between it working and not working, all I know is it ain't working now. It shows up in task manager but really isn't running.

Apps :: Cannot Login To Microsoft Store

Oct 7, 2015

I just upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and I decided to add an app. I clicked on the store app and then picked the app I wanted and then clicked on Free. A menu came up that said choose account so I clicked on Microsoft Account and a screen popped up for about one second and then was gone.

I then went up to the upper right hand of the screen and clicked on the icon to the left of the search window and clicked on Sign In, then I clicked on Microsoft Account and the same thing happened again, a screen popped up and then in a second it was gone. What is causing this?

Below is the screen I see for a few seconds before it goes away. Also, when I go into Setting/Account and click on "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead" the same thing happens.

Apps :: Can't Use Onedrive / Remote Login

Aug 3, 2015

I took the plunge today and did a clean install of Windows 10 pro downloaded from MSDN. The performance is also incredible, everything is very snappy & responsive.

during setup, i opted for "my organisation owns this computer" and i signed in with my Office365 (E3) login details, i also opted to apply the default security policies. the office365 account had only been used to sign in to outlook online, and was never used for Azure active directory / windows login. the setup completed and i can log in directly to the desktop no problem. i noticed however that i could not sign in to one drive, i kept getting prompted for the username and password, and it was rejected every time despite being correct. i have no trouble accessing one drive via the web interface. also, now i noticed that i am unable to access this PC when logging in remotely via remote desktop (from a Win 8.1 PC). the credentials are correct.

it's a mystery. i have a microsoft ID (personal email address - no outlook/hotmail/live email etc) that i've had for years and this is linked with a Microsoft Action Pack subscription. i needed to sign in with these credentials on the Visual Studio license activation screen. i now notice that when i sign in to Office365 via web browser, i am prompted with this question (new since installing windows 10):

Sign in with your work or school accountIt looks like is used with more than one account. Which account do you want to use?Work or school account (Assigned by your work or school)Microsoft account(Personal account) having searched around a lot today, i came across this thread which explains how users are forced to have separate Microsoft accounts - even with the same username/email - to span services like Office365 and MSDN / Action Pack. this seems to describe my situation well, but i can't find any solution to the onedrive & remote login issues.

Apps :: Prevent ITunes From Loading On Startup

Aug 1, 2015

Since I've upgraded to Windows 10, iTunes keeps loading on startup. I looked in the task manager under Startup, and disabled iTunesHelper. I don't see any other apps listed under Startup that are associated with iTunes or any other apple software.

Am I missing something? It's a little annoying having iTunes loading on startup.

Apps :: ITunes Auto Loading At Startup

Aug 6, 2015

One of the casualties of my upgrade to Win 10 Home was my iTunes library. Basically, iTunes could no longer find my music, even though it hadn't moved. To cut a long story short, I ended up creating a new library and all was well - or so I thought. Since then, however, every time I boot my PC, iTunes loads at startup, and the curious thing is that there is no reference to the programme in any of the startup folders, nor in Task Managers Start Up list. I also use CCleaner, and that also shows that nothing apple related should be running at startup.

Clearly something is causing iTunes to run? I should add, there are no iPods connected to the PC, and iTunes helper is also disabled via CCleaner.
