the second window NEVER popped up unbidden here - i always had to double-click a playlist in order to see it in a a separate window. this also helped me when i had to clean up several playlists and move around songs. i can't understand why they removed this feature. it doesn't bother anybody who doesn't want to use it.

I see that my previous post has been edited again by host. What ever happen to freedom of speech
The 1st amendment (freedom of speech) prohibits the government from making laws that impede freedom of speech.
Nothing to do with any postings in this privately owned forum..

I now only use iTunes to update my music on my phone and nothing else, iTunes ***** big time and having used jRiver for the past six months I can see just how rubbish iTunes is, it used to be ok but it died with Jobs.
I no longer have problems with crashing player, losing playlists and such bugs that have been a part of iTunes for so long... and no long waits for the search to accept words everything runs smoothly... but most of all no more duplicates that iTunes loves making.
such a shame it just tarnishes the products that apple produce, by having a media player that is bugged and poorly designed.
there are so many better programs so i would suggest doing what i do... i export my playlist that i want on my phone to itunes and then I dont need itunes for anything else... I also no longer buy music from apple, as everything on there can be purchased elsewhere and normally cheaper.

A large thanks goes to oneluis for the setup he uses! I will play with the combination you use until my NON-APPLE device arrives. If it works the way I like, who knows????

Your welcome Fourways... I got fed up, so red and tested lots of media players and found this set up the perfect one... as I have a large collection.. Having duplicates made was not funny, and needed reliability as I rip my CDs at highest quality for DJ-ing, and constantly losing playlists just got me fed up in the end.
Good luck hope you find your perfect combination say hello to hassle-free music enjoyment J

I've suffered with this absolute piece of crap for over a year now. I couldn't roll back to 10.7 because I sync my iPhone to my computer and so in order to do so, I'm forced to update to the new ios and thus can't stay on 10.7. Last week I had to get a new laptop for work. Problem solved! I now can sync the iPhone with the new crappy iTunes on the new laptop and I was able to clear everything off of my old computer and then put iTunes 10.7 on it. I found the file for free on FileHippo and it worked great. Yes, there is a lot of cleaning up that needs to be done now (no missing music, but artwork missing, some albums misfiled etc.). It's kind of a pain, but I will gladly do it so that my over 60,000 songs and I can happily exist on good old iTunes 10.7. After a year on iTunes 11 I'd forgotten just how great it was compared to this crappy version they've stuck us with. I know this solution won't work for everyone, but if you have an extra computer handy that you can dedicate to itunes, it's not a bad way to go.

Just uninstalled. Joke of a program. Way to go, table pounding execs! Now go pound the table some more and really drive this software into the ground! See my previous post...

I, too, like oneluis will stick with my older version of iTunes 10.5.1.42. The problem is the software on my iPod is 5.0 and some of the apps I've purchased require 6.0 or 6.1 so I can't even use them but I have very afraid to update my iPod, God knows what will happen! I don't even know if you can upgrade to 6.1 with an older version of iTunes. Anyone know?
I just don't use those v.6.0 requirement apps anymore even though I bought them, just use the other apps that have stuck with 5.0 requirement.

I have a first Generation iPad ,and have been informed there isnt a way to upgrade to ios 6. I have to be real careful now when updating apps, because some have raised the minimums to IOS6. I installed one by accident once, it was a real Bummer to fix.

You cannot instal iOS 6 apps on an iPad 1.
Simplest way to update apps is to only update them on the iPad app store, then transfer purchases from iPad to iTunes.

short answer... very unlikely... ios 6.1 (and even 6.0 at the time) pretty much needs itunes 10.7.
From what I understand:
itunes 10.5 (and/or 10.6) probably support as high as the last ios 5 version
itunes 10.7 is required for ios 6.x
itunes 11.1 is required for ios 7
