At least in Terminal.app you can hold down option while clicking to jump within your current line (that actually means just the line, so if your current prompt is so long that it wraps to a second line of input you'll have to option-click to the beginning of the "second" line and then hop with the arrow keys to the "first" line where you can option-click ...

There's a reason why Apple appears to onlookers to be so anti-Flash, and it's because Flash sucks on Macs (it may also suck on other OSs, but I don't use them enough to be knowledgeable). What to do about it depends on what browser you use (your question doesn't say, as Mozilla's Plugin Check isn't FF-only): Safari - the answer is ClickToFlash. Honestly, ...

Last.fm and its API opened to developers gave birth to some nice web applications. Of course, you must have an account (free) and scrobble your songs to benefit from them. Two of them related to analytics (I'm not a specialist, I guess there must be other ones) : http://www.mymusichabits.com/visualize/cosmokraymer ...

Installing java won't have much effect on battery life. I don't think installing Flash will have much effect either. Where the issue is is when you hit a website with badly written flash (and to a very much less extent Java) where the animation takes up CPU but you can just leave these sites - you will be no worse off than not installing. Java is now ...

In Mac's mail app you have got the option to create a 'smart mailbox'. This allows you for example to only view unread emails. It can even do that over multiple mailboxes. Sample rule for unread messages of today (taken from makeusof.com): If you just want to have the unread messages always on top, there's a sort option for that in the menu between Edit ...

This is a known issue and the author doesn't plan to fix it. I encourage someone to go further and implement it because personally I don't use fullscreen apps right now and I don't plan to fix this anytime soon. Luckily, there is a workaround described by vvlad. As an workaround you can set LSUIElement in Terminal's Info.plist It has several ...

You can see still browse resources in the web inspector. To download a file, you can copy the URL from the right sidebar, paste it on the location bar, and press ⌥↩. The web inspector can be shown by pressing ⌥⌘I if you've enabled showing the develop menu in the advanced preferences.

Problematic uses of terminology Where Oracle describes first Java for "your operating system" then "for your computer", the download is more accurately only for things that use the Internet plug-in: jre-7u13-macosx-x64.dmg installs what's required for that plug-in, but for things that use Java without the plug-in, this installer from Oracle does ...

I was having a very similar issue, all video or jpg image files were replaced by the "Missing Plug-in" in any email received or sent. After upgrading to the latest Java, deleting the java plist file, repairing permissions, and numerous other suggested solutions from various websites, I downloaded from Apple and installed the latest OSX 10.7.5 "combo" update. ...

Mail.app has the ability to flag in red any e-mail address (in the To, CC, BCC fields, or From pull-down menu) that does not match a particular domain ending. If you go to Mail -> preferences -> Composing and enter your primarydomain.com in the "Mark addresses not ending in:" field. I use this all the time for exactly what you are asking for. if ...

I'm not super familiar with NoScript, but from a quick glance at the site, I can think of two good starting points - how useful they are will depend on which features of NoScript you make use of. ClickToPlugin is a great plugin blocker, pretty configurable, and it also has a fantastic h.264 replacement for Flash video. It substitutes h.264 video with a nice ...

It appears Spotlight does not make use of Address Book plug-ins. Extra menu items added by Skype also fail to appear in the Spotlight preview. It is worth providing feedback to Apple asking for this functionality to be added. It would greatly improve Spotlight. Context Menu in Contacts.app: Context Menu of Contact in Spotlight:

The cheapest option is to use quartz composer to assemble the individual clips and mix them down. It is not designed like iMovie or Final Cut Express with shortcuts and ready build transitions, but it is free with Xcode 3. You have to register and agree to Apple's developer tools restrictions before downloading Xcode 3. You want the free program at the ...

Flash crashed so often for me, I have gone flash free and only use flash in Google Chrome browser. Google installs flash within that one app, updates flash behind the scenes and Safari hasn't crashed once in 6 months. I would recommend three useful and stable Safari extensions if you disable flash in Safari: YouTube5 HTML5 Audio H.264 Flickr Video

For what it’s worth, I’ve checked both the Develop menu and the Debug menu in the latest Safari.app (Version 5.1.4 / 7534.54.16), and couldn’t find any helpful features. Develop menu: Debug menu: The debug menu can be enabled using the following command: defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu -bool true

You can't talk Eclipse into treating app bundles as files. Mac apps are actually "bundles", which are special folders, not files. The Finder treats them as files, but anything that uses lower-level file system APIs will see a .app file as the folder it actually is. If you look at the appify script on Github, you can see that just making a few plain ...

A quick-fix way to avoid this error is to Control-click on the Mail toolbar, select Customize Toolbar ... and instead of accepting the Apple default where Reply, Reply All and Forward are joined in one big button, choose each one singly, dragging them to the toolbar as a single button, spacing them widely and not contiguous at all ... and Show Icon and Text ...

I haven't seen a good universal solution, but have found that by selecting only the bare minimum text I need to reply to, I can often get a clean, clear reply that doesn't need substantial (or even any) clean up when replying in plain text. Sadly, the best solution for presenting these emails cleanly is a powerful email client like elm. BBedit, Safari's ...

UnsubMailPluginMail AppOSX is a leftover from a free program which later switched to become a userpay software. The program vanished but the plugin stayed to pop up and annoy you. To remove it.... Open your FINDER window. Proceed to the GO menu.Then down to GO TO FOLDER OPTION. Then in the window delete existing wording and type in /Library/Mail/ When the ...

I doubt there's a SIMBL plugin to do that. What you're asking for would be a fairly extensive rewrite even if you had the source code for the Finder. Your best bets are what @jtbandes and @Richard's comments on your question state: get a Finder replacement that does that or use list view in the Finder.

cmd ⌘+alt ⌥+A ⇔ Window > Activity may help you to identify which tab is the heaviest in activity if it is lasting long enough. I must admit that all my tests where failure, but I'm mostly using web servers which are fast. I also tested Debug > Show Frame Rate Meter (see Mathias Debug dropdown menu) which is a partial answer to the original question. ...

You can easily switch accounts from the pop-up in a new mail message, see below. Sorry, new user, not allowed to post my screen capture, but it is easy to find, just below the CC or BCC field and just above the body of the message, on the left To avoiding hassles sending from the wrong account with multiple mail accounts the only satisfactory way I have ...

Unfortunately, this is the behaviour of the SIMBL plugin. One oddity about this solution is that you may need to kill the Finder again to bring the color icons back after a full system reboot Source

Yes - you won't have to worry about updating software that Apple seems to be less and less inclined to let run. It also has earned a reputation as software that you want to devote time and attention to patching or making sure you never run code you don't trust. If you're not going to block java in the web and take measures to secure it, you'd be better off ...

One thing to try is to find the Photoshop application, and Get Info on it. You can do this by selecting it in your Applications solder and pressing Command I or right clicking and choose Get Info. If you see a check box marked Open in 32 bit mode try selecting it, and then launch photoshop again. Plugins for all programs generally need to be 32 bit if the ...

It currently is not possible to add tags in iTunes like you can in other iLife applications. The only reason I can think of why its not available is that most people would just group their music by genre, and that be enough. Other than using the comments field or the like, there are really not many other options. In some searches I did come across an app ...

For quickly executing simple commands, DTerm can be an excellent solution. It can execute simple, non-interactive commands without opening a terminal window, or you can press ⌘+↩ to have it execute the command in a Terminal/iTerm window. I think of DTerm as a sort of CLI app launcher, similar to common GUI app launchers like Alfred, Quicksilver, ...

The official way is to store files on Mac OS X server volumes where the spotlight server functionality has been written to provide search of unmounted volumes. I am unaware of a free or open source effort to recreate this function but it is certainly doable. If you only want filename search, you could use locate and launchd to extend the local copy of the ...
