note: copied from SuperUser: For older versions of OSX, see this thread on forums.macosxhints.com. Credit goes to dblu for explaining the use of plutil, ZILjr for introducing the wait4path command, and ekl for simplifying the whole thing by eliminating the need for an intermediate shell script.

the query string is defined in : ~/Library/Safari/Configurations.plist.signed but the file is signed and cannot be edited without being replaced by safari. Also, it seems that every time you use this search bar, Safari hits This file on apple.com which can make one assume that Safari compares the 2 files and replaces the local one when needed. I think ...

You can go ahead and set it to what you want in Mail Preferences. These settings have no effect on what is seen at the other end. To do that you have to change the font for each outgoing individually in the New Message pane.

I've had a similar problem in the past. First, open the file you want to use as an icon in Preview. Select all, then copy. Close Preview. Navigate to the folder whose icon you want to change. Go to File-> Get Info. Select the icon at the top left of the info window and paste. The folder's icon should be changed. Basically, by copying the image directly ...

Quit Mail, edit the .mailsignature file with a text editor changing the HTML to whatever you like then right click the file in Finder and select "Get Info" then tick the "Locked" checkbox. This prevents Mail from resetting the file to the original version and it uses your version.

I don't use it, but GLIMS looks like it will easily let you insert a search engine different than what Safari bundles. More intrusive, but way slick in my opinion is the SafariOmnibar it's excellent work and you can customize your search provider since it's hacked into that part of safari using SIMBL - the SIMple Bundle Loader process. I use LaunchBar and ...

You can drag and drop an Applescript (script and application) to the finder toolbar, which places the icon for the Applescript in the toolbar just like any other button (though I prefer the menubar's Applescript menu for such things because I can have more scripts available in a smaller space). I don't think you can create a button out of nothing and bind an ...

just drag and drop :) sometimes it does not work so, you do a simple: COPY: copy to clipboard the icon you want to use SELECT: select the icon you want to remove PASTE: paste it

As an update to my own question, I have just come across this Safari extension which redirects searches from google.com to google.co.uk. It also redirects Yahoo searches from search.yahoo.com to uk.search.yahoo.com.

It's very tricky. You have to disassemble the whole iPod nano as the guide for clip removal on iFixit shows. This is a picture taken from the second last step:

CmdF-selected text doesn't seem to be available to activate. But you can OptTab / OptShiftTabthrough the page's links until you've highlighted the one you want, then Enter to activate it. In Preferences | Advanced, you can reverse the Tab behavior so the Tab selects links and OptTab selects window elements.

Simply drag the folder to the desired position in the sidebar. This adds the folder to the sidebar in every current and future Finder window, as well as Finder Open/Save windows/sheets. Removal is done by dragging the folder from the sidebar out to the side.

No it is not safe. Not for technical reasons -- That is impossible to judge -- but look at the seller's profile on amazon. They have thousands of items for sale, yet they have a total of two customer ratings; one rating one star the other two stars (out of five)! This looks very much like a scammy outfit that changes its name when it gets bad reviews. Run ...

Depends on how you sync Google Contacts to iPhone. If you do it by setting up the gmail account on your iPhone using the Exchange option, then fields in your Google contacts do not transfer to the phone. But the advantage of using the Exchange way is that syncing is instant--edit a contact on the phone and it changes in your Google account as well. If you ...
