More Reports on macOS 10.14 installs from Mac Pro/Radeon RX 580 owners (Oct. 1st)
Added several more Mojave upgrade reports to the page on Sapphire Radeon RX 580 cards in Mac Pros (2009-2012). One update was from a Nitro+ card owner that had reported earlier on using High Sierra. And one report include notes/tips on boot problems with unsigned extensions (removed after a safe boot). More comments on patience as the upgrade can take a long time - some noted more than an hour.
Firefox Updates with fixes for MacOS Mojave and Security (A user posted about Firefox shows black screen in macOS Mojave, a reply has a tip/solution.)

macOS 10.14 Mojave Forum Posts on Problems/Tips (later added first)
  • Posts on "Wi-Fi: No Hardware Installed" after 10.14 update here and here.
    IIRC, Broadcom BCM94321MC (and Atheros 9380) are not supported anymore. (I think Broadcom BCM94322MC still is.)
    Update: Several users with this problem said removing/renaming '/etc/sysctl.conf' file helped.
    (The original linked post was later removed at Apple's forum. Link above has copy of tip.)

  • No Boot Camp on Mojave? - Late 2012 iMac 27" with 3TB HD
    Ref Apple doc If you see the alert 'Installation cannot proceed with Boot Camp configured'
    "If you have an iMac (27-inch, Late 2012) with a 3TB hard drive, you must remove its Boot Camp partition before you can install macOS Mojave 10.14. After you upgrade to macOS Mojave, you won't be able to use Boot Camp to install Windows on this Mac."
    FYI: Article updated to add affected 2013/2014 27in iMacs & options for those models.
    (The 2013/2014 models can reinstall boot camp/Windows 10 -after- installing Mojave.)

  • Many posts on App Store problems after upgrade to Mojave (page 9 linked)
    (See tips in posts here, here & "on your Mac" section of related Apple support article.)

  • 2 threads on "" alert popup (here and here) appearing after Mojave upgrade - appears to be a keylogger. (The 2nd link includes an example image of the popup alert.) Some note the app bundle included screenshots from 2014. No info on how/when it was installed, but posts indicate warning (popup) was only seen after Mojave was installed. (Found at /Library/LaunchAgents/

  • Tip for EyeTV app crashing in Mojave (apple forums)
    (Fixed he said by allowing it access to Camera in Security & Privacy prefs. Some others replied that also helped them. I'm guessing it really is probing USB for a TV Tuner?)

  • Threads on problems installing 10.14 on 2018 MacBook Pros here and here

  • Threads on Time Machine Backups failing after 10.14 update here and here

  • Some 10.14 users say Blank DVDs & Blank CDs Not Showing on Desktop
