    Selecting multiple files in Catalina breaks the finder

    I have no idea how to reach out to Apple, but their new Catalina OS is making my work very painful... I want to know if others are having this problem too. Same behaviour on my girlfriend's MacBook Air with Catalina, but my 6 years old iMac with Sierra doesn't have this problem. Mac: MacBook...

    Finder's awesome fragility... since 1995 (at least)

    From the times of System 7.5.3, across hardware architecture and OS changes, Finder has kept a great track record of being a suprisingly, disappointingly fragile app. Back then, the source of minutes-long freezes could be copying files into diskettes; now it is synchronizing iOS gadgets over...

    After upgrading to Sierra, computer locks up several times/day. Becoming useless. What to do?

    Before I switched to Sierra, with various previous OSX versions, I would occasionally get beachballs which I could fix by force-quitting the unresponsive application, which is usually Safari. Now with Sierra, whenever I get a beachball, the whole computer becomes unresponsive so I can't...

    Safari - Beachball when clicking on saved password fields.

    Did a search and noticed a few people on Sierra had this but no answer yet. Will file a radar with Apple but worth posting here too. It doesn't happen on all my Sierra computers, in fact it only happens on the new MacBook Pro, which I restore from a Carbon Copy Clone of my 'old' MacBook Pro...

    iMac 27" 5k Beachball After Sleep

    I saw this a few times prior to upgrading to 10.11.5, but it has happened twice now. iMac 27" (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)) goes to sleep... I wake it up, it wakes up and presents me with the login (I need to select the user and enter the password). When I enter the password, it goes to...
