The icon drop-down specifically refers to content blockers, which suggests that other types of extensions are excluded from its functionality.

The problem originally reared its ugly head on an eBay page which only erratically asks me to complete a Captcha. I've got no idea what its URL is.

I just ran into the problem again here. Curiously, though I hit "Submit" while the spinning thingy was still spinning and my message was apparently sent.

Re: The Monterey Report Beta 10 joemikeb 10/24/21 08:00 PM
SUMMARY

Monterey (macOS 12) is scheduled for full release tomorrow October 25, 2021. My Current status is…
  • I have no remaining incompatible apps (Rogue Amoeba just completed updating their last app and SoftRAID has a running gold master scheduled for Tuesday release)
  • Montrerey compatilble Etrecheck pro delivered an almost cleanbill of health (there are still a couple of unsigned apps but they run just fine in the Monterey gold master)
  • My system is rock solid stable and has been for days now.
  • the learning curve has been steeper than I expected, but much of that has been subsumed in subsequent betas.
  • The average user should encounter few surprises but the power user may find some additional security related changes and those who stick with or reverted to Big Sur will find they have a steeper learning curve to climb.
  • There are new features in Monterey that add significant utility for power users although it may take some rethinking to take full advantage of them.
  • One major feature, Universal Control, did not make it into macOS 12 — list it among Coming Attractions.
  • For clone fans there is no change from Big Sur nor is any change expected either by CCC or SD. (Once Apple gets moving kernel extensions into the user rather than system area that may improve but given the multi-tiered boot structure I am not about to hold my breath waiting on bootable clones as we knew them in Mac OS X).


OPINION

Monterey is a significant step in the macOS evolution and certainly the most secure version yet. The new features are well thought out, and useful, but not particularly exciting.

SHOULD YOU UPGRADE?

I would, of course, say YES. The step to the next macOS 13(?) will only get higher.

THIS THREAD HAS OUTLIVED WHATEVER USEFULNESS IT HAD, IF ANY, SO I AM GOING TO CLOSE IT AT THIS POINT. IF YOU WISH TO RECORD YOUR OWN INSTALLATION SUCCESSES OR PROBLEMS THOSE CAN GO IN THREADS OF THEIR OWN.

I started getting some spam and, when the first piece arrived, I used to the Apple Mail "Rules" function to put in a 'Delete if it Contains', but then it kept showing up and I kept writing new rules. This morning I reviewed the rules written so far and found that addresses differed slightly.

6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@i8shux.d63rrwu7t5.us
6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@gua84k.gng2y96knq.us
6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@rxb2b5.wp22k437kv.us
6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@67dnhr.mv6wysa1p1.us

Everything is common up to the @ so I wrote a new rule that looks only for addresses "Containing" 6857.ugKl1l36iRjSdt84elbv@ Hopefully that'll do it. And, hopefully this experience will help anyone else with a similar issue.

True, but there may be Safari extensions that are not covered by the Website Preferences icon.

You do not need Safari's Develop menu to disable content blocks, disable/enable popups, permit access to the camera or microphone for any web site. Simply click on the Website Preferences icon on the Safari Menu bar.

Thanks, Jon.

I usually think of content blockers on my own...don't know why this time was different.

I can't test, though, because I logged in from Firefox, so it'll have to wait until it comes up again.

Disk Warrior is based on a deep understanding of the intricacies of HFS+ which is conceptualized around rotating mechanical media and APFS is a conceptual clean sheet of paper re-do for the file system for use on radically different media that renders much of what DW does unnecessary it not infeasible, so you may be right. At the same time Disk Utility has evolved to do a credible job of rebuilding directories and costs 100% less than DW and is the only tool I have actually needed in years.

That's a really great idea, and a perfect example of the good that can come of technological advances. It'd be very, very disappointing if they thought extra money could be made by selling locations. Does their site have any "How we handle your information" type of written assurance?

Yes, and their privacy policy states that while they own the information they collect, they will only use it to communicate with you and the charity you have selected.

Re: retrieving deleted emails Ira L 10/23/21 07:33 PM
It could depend on your ISP and the email software that you use. If it is Apple Mail and you have not emptied the Mail Trash, they might still be there. Mail Preferences allows you to set the duration before the Trash is emptied. Similarly, if your mail is coming through someone like Yahoo, Gmail, etc., if you access the mail through a browser, there may be a similar situation as with Mail.

And even if you us Apple Mail exclusively, you can still go to the provider's mail website via a browser and check there, too.

Re: APFS jaybass 10/22/21 10:22 PM
I have just ran TTPro14 and ran Volume rebuild which checked 11 items and returned a conclusion of "No Rebuild errors Encountered"

Unlike D/W, it doesn't give the percentage of efficiency. I image it should be the same as D/W though.

Thank you for telling me about that TTPro can rebuild my directory...I wasn't aware. Nice to know until Alsoft fixes D/W.

Re: APFS joemikeb 10/22/21 08:57 PM
In general since Disk Warrior is a third party tool designed to support file system on the Mac it is Alsoft's responsibility to be compatible with Apple and not the other way around. That said, developers have complained that Apple has been tardy in releasing the full APFS specifications, but Micromat's TechTool Pro can rebuild an APFS directory. Additionally Apple's Disk Utility > First Aid has become pretty robust and should be able to handle a directory rebuild in either APFS or HFS+ although you will have to run it from the Recovery Drive to repair the boot drive.

Re: Ipad how search a pdf, and how find apps? kevs 10/22/21 06:55 PM
Joe, fascinating, will note all this.. Workarounds are way too much of a hassle, but my idea, which is also a hassle is probably best right?

And did not think of this while sitting comfortably the other day in my big chair with my ipad pro:

Just walk over to the next room and sit at the 27" imac and find the same pdf and do the search.

So I just did that finally now, and lo and behold, the search bar was right there upper right, and drills down into every part of the pdf beautifully, which confirms that still traditional OS blows away ios, IMO.

That said, everything you have written is fantastic, to know for future frustrations with IOS....

APFS jaybass 10/22/21 06:48 PM
OS 10.14.6

I have been have trouble running D/W and alsoft has me given instructions on how to resolve the problem. After following what they advised, it still wouldn't work.

Then I read that D/W will not allow a directory to be rebuilt if you have APFS. Does the solution lie with apple? If so, is apple actually doing anything?
