Tech / Calling jchuzi... Please help!
« Last post by Dreambird on Today at 06:09:15 AM »
I was just waiting for payday to order the USB hub you recommended but it appears they now have new stock which says it's for Mojave so don't know if it will work for High Sierra:

Any suggestions for perhaps another model if this one won't work for me?  :sos:

There's this one with 4 ports... it would do although the charging port would be nice.

Bunches of thanks in advance!

Any ideas of what you might do? Leave the whole thing alone? Remove the Rapportd app as prompted by the "uninstall" in the Safari extensions and take out as much as possible that way? Definitely DO NOT enable the Safari extension... just leave them unchecked?

 :dntknw: I'm open to any ideas!

I have found... uuhhmm "helpful" (NOT) sites like this:

You follow the link that's supposed to bring you to the original .dmg file which is "supposed" to contain the uninstaller only to  :wallbash: right into another brick wall!
Tech / Odd message in Font Book...
« Last post by Dreambird on November 26, 2021, 07:37:18 PM »
When I open Font Book there is a message in yellow "Multiple copies of this font are installed." That's the best I can get after several openings and closings of Font Book as the message flashes by so fast it's hard to read!

I have preferences set to Default Install Location: User and the box for "Resolve duplicates by moving files to the trash" checked.
I also selected ALL the fonts and checked for duplicates... there were none found... then I chose to validate all the fonts... no problems found except for 2 minor problems with one font. I disabled that one otherwise no problems.
Shut down Font Book... restarted it and there's the same message flashing by...  :wallbash: Happens even when there is no font selected.

Does anyone have any idea what the thing means?

I did not receive any update notification on my MBP or iPad...  :dntknw:
Of course my iPad is still waiting on me to install iPadOS 15.1 so that might be all that item needs!

Apple Sues NSO
NSO Group has claimed that its software exploits have only been sold to "vetted" military, law enforcement, and intelligence agencies for use against criminals and terrorists, but a massive data leak earlier this year confirmed widespread abuse of the spyware.

Keep those security updates up-to-date, boys & girls! :yes:

Thanks Jon for that link... lots of interesting stuff there. I've just looked it over but will have time for a good read later today... honestly I'm glad to see there are lots of choices for good browsers! :)

I ended up doing a search for Rapport in EasyFind which will show one every-single-thing. There are 141 related files all over the computer...
In your home Library and in /Library and in /System/Library AND many files in invisible places so you really can't come anywhere close to completely removing it. Oh, you'll get rid of some by removing the app and extensions and the System Preferences Pref Pane but many more will be left behind.

There is no uninstaller that I can find and weeding out all those files manually goes into some "dangerous" areas.
I'm afraid a person is just stuck with all this junk all over the computer but if anyone has any ideas I'd be most greatful to hear them!  :)

To remove the Safari Rapport extensions you can choose to "uninstall" them but you get a message that tells you they are part of the Rapportd App that you must remove and then you can choose to view them in Finder. That removes the "App" and the Safari extension but leaves behind all the other associated files:
