    Not sure at all, but it won't do any harm to try.

    PS You might also try opening it with TextEdit which is in your Applications folder.

    My problems with Lion:

     

    I have a MacMini purchased in the spring of 2010 - it was supposed to be ready for LION so I purchased the program. Big mistake.

     

    I teach an on-line course: papers submitted to the website take a minimum of two minutes to download. Safari acts like it's working in molasses.

     

    When I turn the computer on, it takes 2 minutes to finally bring me to the desktop screen. Trying to burn a CD on this machine ruined at least 4 disks, and burning the disk would stall after 3 or four minutes - after 20 minutes it was still "Burning".

     

    How does one get back to Snow Leopard? I wasted 29 bucks on this trash. I'm surprised MacLife hasn't written anything on this.

    I asome your MacMini come with restore discs and you have used backups.

     

    If you have a backup made when you had Snowleopard install then you should beable to restore to that point.

     

    The none detaled/a outline way of doinging this is;

     

    Boot using the restore disc or a SnowLeopard install disc:

     

    Use the discutils from the menus to format the computers disc

     

    exit discutils and use menu options to restore from backup

     

    re-boot and there you are a restored system.

     

    But I will tack a fare bet that some of your problems are not down to Lion; one at a time;

     

    Burning CD's 3 things to say (1 the make/type of blank CDs can make a big diffence. 2 the speed you have the burn set to some blanks can be used faster than others try redusing the burn speed.  3 the drive's lens my be dirty use a lens cleaning CD)

     

    "I teach an on-line course: papers submitted to the website take a minimum of two minutes to download. Safari acts like it's working in molasses."

     

    Check witch browser the website is written for (e-mail the site admin and ask) try using a difent browser like FireFox or Internet Explorer.

    This Mac Lion is the worst thing since Vista.  My computer became a piece of junk...I see that spinning wheel with almost everything since I installed it. Flash problems, browser problems (Chrome, Firefox, all of them), email extremely slow, problems with video, other programs pre installed simply don't work anymore. I don't think that we need to have so many problems and even have to reinstall ANYTHING again to make things work correctly. Either the program addresses all when it is installed or it simply doesn't work properly, and that's the case with Lion. If you upgrade to something newer, it's supposed to be better, not worst. I don't have to keep "fixing" things myself in order to make it work in the first place. Period!

    Stop giving stupid advice. If you don't have problems with it good for you. The majority of people here are posting problem after problem. I don't have time to take a computer that was working perfectly well before Lion to a store to be repaired, actually to repair what? Lear how to use Lion??? How many years of dealing with computers do you think people here have?

    You are not asking questions. If you want to fix what is obviously an issue with YOUR install of Lion then put forward your issues. You get agressive, either the vibes come back or nothing comes back. Other users here give their time to helping others with problems, thus (if you haven't worked it out yet) this is a 'troubleshooting forum' and most everyone here is having some issues. The polite ones more often than not get their's fixed. Millions of Lion users are having NO issues except getting used to some interface changes, others are too cranky or stubborn to change. So either address your issues, or go to an Apple Store and have your machine looked at or complain to Apple.

     

    Have A Nice Day

    Thanks, TopSteve.

     

    With reference to the CDs, they were the same kind of CDs I used with Snow Leopard and they burned with no problem. I will try to reduce the disk-burning speed to see whether that works. I will also try a lens cleaning CD to see if that improves the iTune performance.

     

    With reference to downloading papers, I have run into the same problem with other browsers, I have checked with the site administrator and he is as puzzled as I. Months before the same site worked perfectly with Snow Leopard - instantaneous downloads.

     

    Thank you for taking the time to make your suggests. I appreciate your help.

    Have you installed or bought forward any installs of 3rd Party Programs, especially any anti-virus software, MacKeeper, Little Snitch or any software which may have added PlugIns to you browsers?

     

    Also, often some sites take lomger than others to update so as to run smothly with new OS's as was found with previous Mac OSs and especially Vista and W7.

     

    Good Luck

    Having problems with desktop. Icons keep disappearing. Have to double-click on finder to restore. Sometimes when closing an application but most of the time when I quit from file menu or using command Q. Anyone else have this problem?

    I've had that problem plenty of times. Yesterday it just hit during a live demo in class.. F---ing irritating. My solution was to open up a new window, but I'll try double-clicking the Finder icon in the dock next time, thanks!

    The answer is to go back to SnowLeopard, tell Apple why using the feedback system and next time only upgrade if you need the things the upgrade gives.  I use SnowLeopard to do my work and will not be upgrading.
