Map module is white on Mac OS

In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom in Mac OS, the Map module displays white.


Solution 1: Make sure that you're connected to the Internet.

The Map module can be white when you're not connected to the Internet.

Solution 2: Make sure that Lightroom is not installed on a case-sensitive partition.

Although you can install Lightroom on a case-sensitive partition, it cannot be run on such a partition. If it is on a case-sensitive partition, move the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom file to a partition that isn't case-sensitive.

Solution 3: Make sure that you have read and write permissions to the Flash Player folder and all its subfolders.

You need read and write permissions to the following folder: ~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player folder. 

Important: Apple made the user library folder hidden by default with the release of Mac OS X 10.7. If you need access to files in the hidden library folder to perform Adobe-related troubleshooting, see How to access hidden user library files.

Change the permissions on this folder so that you have read and write permissions. 

To change permissions on a file in Mac OS, do the following:

  1. Select the ~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player folder.
  2. Get info on the folder.

  3. In the Sharing & Permissions section, select your account in the list, and change the Privilege to Read & Write. (Click + to add your account if it's missing from the list.)

  4. Click the lock icon and, after typing in your password, click the Settings icon at the bottom of the dialog box.

  5. For each of the names, select Apply to enclosed items.
