    These files are updated everyday (if I do not forget, I append data to them: Copy/Paste from a web page from Safari into TextEdit).

    I installed (on last Saturday ?) Mojave on an external HD, (one hour to wait !), and play a bit (download Firefox, Xojo 2015r1 and install them), run Disk Utilities (whatever its current name is), then shut down.

    I do not recall when was the last day I appended text into those two files nor if there is more missing in action files, but when I wanted to update the files yerterday, they were no more in TextEdit / nor in my hard disk.

    I booted some tens minutes ago on Mojave, made a search, but it does not found them.

    The files have “Alley Oop” inside them / in their title (but a bit different).
    Nota: I have other files that hold that name in their title, but they still are here. I also have plenty png file for that character.

    I checked for invisibles files, but nothing. I also checked an archived folder just in case I moved them there, but no.

  2. Emile, is it safe now to download the last release of Firefox?
    At present I'm still running version 60.0.1 (64bit), since a few months ago you said that there were problems (Firefox eating disk-space). Are there particular folders affected by such space-eating bug?
    Thanks.

    Carlo:
    the two missing files troubles are different from the Firefox report I've made earlier.

    For some reason, the Firefox trouble disappears. I donwloaded all new version (since) at release time.

    BUT: keep more that 30-40GB of Free boot disk space; below 20GB, the whole computer speed start to be slow (on a SSD !). When I had a 1TB (HD) boot disk, I used to have two volumes: 1 with 100GB (named “Boot”), and the remainding space in another volume I called “Data”. The Firefox download folder was set to the “Data” folder.

    One week to wait until new Apple’s laptops…

  4. Thank you for answering and for the advice.
