Finder security errors opening documents: a summary – The Eclectic Light Company
“In certain circumstances, trying to open a document in macOS 10.8 and later can result in a security error and refusal. This article summarises knowledge about this issue: how it arises, what it means, and how to work around it.

“This issue only affects documents for which the default app has been set to a different one, either in the Finder’s Get Info dialog or by some other means. If you never use that feature, then it should never trouble you on your Mac.”

“• You are unable to complete a purchase from the iTunes Store.
• You are told that you do not have permission to modify your iTunes Media folder when downloading from the iTunes Store.
• You cannot play content you purchased from the iTunes Store.
• An alert appears with the following text:
‘There was an error storing your authorization information on this computer. The required directory was not found or has a permission error.’l

Connection Failing 12/23/17 | Page 3 | TiVoCommunity Forum
“Well, after some packet tracing and a little shenanigans, I’m back online.

“When the Tivo first connects, it connect to something that I presume is a load balancer, and it responds with whom should be contacted next.

“hserver:h2.tivoservice.com:80

“It then connects to h2.tivoservice.com:80, sends some data, the connection abruptly closes, and the Tivo says failed.

“So who is h2?

“nslookup h2.tivoservice.com
“Name: pdk-vip.tp1.tivo.com
“Address: 208.73.183.229
“Aliases: h2.tivoservice.com

“Hmm, is there a h1? Yes there is…

“nslookup h1.tivoservice.com
“Name: pdk.sj.tivo.com
“Address: 208.73.181.202
“Aliases: h1.tivoservice.com

“So, shall we shenanigan, assume h2 is sick, and redirect all traffic destined to h2, to h1 instead? On the router…

“iptables -t nat -t nat -A PREROUTING -s 10.1.1.216/32 -d 208.73.183.229/32 -j DNAT –to-destination 208.73.181.202

“(The first IP is the ip of one of my Tivo’s. The second is h2. The third is h1.)

“And my daily calls now work. (Odd note, after introducing the redirect, it always works on the ‘second’ daily call, and from then on. If I remove the redirect and break it again, it fails immediately. Then after reintroducing the redirect, it works on the second call again. That I can’t explain without more tracing, so do call twice.)”

Error message – GOV.UK Design System
This post kinda has some promising tips on writing error messages—such as “do not use words like ‘forbidden’, ‘illegal’, ‘you forgot’ and ‘prohibited’”—but then they gotta mess things up by suggesting things like this: “‘Enter a first name that is 35 characters or less’ is wordier, less direct and natural than ‘First name must be 35 characters or less’”.

"error has occurred using the Stylish database" - forum.userstyles.org
"Another possible reason for this error is if Firefox is set not to accept cookies (Options/Preferences page, Privacy & Security panel, Custom settings for history). Apparently that affects the ability of extensions to use IndexedDB storage. This is expected to be fixed in Firefox 59, about three months from now."

What are these Engine.log errors? - Questions & Suggestions - Keyboard Maestro Discourse
If you get "Invalid Plug In Action with Name X” errors in Keyboard Maestro’s log:
"Invalid Plug In Action with Name X happens if a plugin action in a macro cannot be configured.

"So it looks like you have macros referencing plug in actions Wrap Text, Application by Name, Choose File(s) and XPath matches in Chrome or Safari, not of which are installed on your Mac apparently."
