I have two alternatives: Press Cmd+L (go the Location/Search field), then Cmd+Return. Click the back button (<), then press Cmd while clicking the forward button (>). Both of these will open a tab in the background. (Often, Cmd + click opens the click target's reference in a new tab.) If you also press Shift while performing the second step of ...

I had exactly the same (but on Yosemite), and found this (https://discussions.apple.com/message/29693684#29693684) resolved it. Uncheck Use Safari Suggestions in the Search tab in Safari Preferences. Certainly not a solution to the problem, but gets around it until more concrete information comes out..

If you watch the menu Archive, you can see Cmd+w changes depending on the number of open tabs. If there are multiple, it's "Close Tab", if there is one (not counting the pinned), it's "Close Window". There is a workaround! You can overwrite Cmd+w to always execute "Close Tab". Go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts Add a ...

I'VE FOUND THE PROBLEM!!!! WHOOORAHHHHH! ADOBE it's you! Flickering curser / curser not showing / jiggering around all over etc in all adobe products and your browser with ADOBE flash plugins! A team of 22 people in my office all had similar issues and we resolved it simply by closing our currently open photoshop documents. Why this fixed it we have no ...

In Safari 9.0 (El Capitano) you can right-click on the URL while holding down the option key and you then have the option to open the URL in a new private window. This option is provided from regular or private windows, unlike what appears to be the case in previous versions of Safari.

I found a way to reset my Safari installation this way: 1) I created a backup of my bookmarks: cp ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist ~/Desktop/ 2) I deleted some Safari specific files: rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari \ ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari.SearchHelper \ ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari \ ...

I was looking for something similar as I use the Chrome bookmark bar in that way, but I couldn't find anything suitable. So I made an extension and have submitted it to Apple, Favicon Bar: http://umfana.github.io/FaviconBar It's basic but does the job for me, for now.

Start by typing in the website into the Safari URL bar "example Gmail". Then at the bottom of the suggestions it'll show you Search for 'gmail' in History. Click that option and then select all and press delete. Worked like a charm for me.

They're not being deleted, they're just read and you're hiding read items. Show unread items in reading list by clicking the Show Unread button above the list.

No, once you delete history, it is removed from the database. That database is backed up, so you can use your backup method (Time Machine backup, etc) to restore the following files: ~/Library/Safari/History*

I don't know of any Safari extension doing this but you may use Automator to create a folder action attached to your preferred download folder sorting files according to their extension or kind to various folders. That's even independent from the browser you usually use. The article here outlines the workflow which sorts *.dmg and pictures: Create the ...

More than likely, you've used the Inspection Tool and have an element highlighted. The $0–$4 variables contain the current and previous selected nodes from the Elements Tree Hierarchy. source: https://webkit.org/blog/829/web-inspector-updates/ Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari - If you have an element currently selected in your "Elements" tab, you can ...

OS X builds cache files from the fonts installed on your system. Now and again these cache files can get corrupted. Try running the following command in a Terminal window (you will be prompted for your password) and rebooting. This will remove these cache files; forcing OS X to re-generate them from scratch. sudo atsutil databases -remove From the ...

Like the others have said, Apple has ceased development for it. The latest Windows version is 5.1.7 and you can find it in several places including FileHippo (http://filehippo.com/download_safari/) It will give you warnings galore, that its not the latest most secure browser, but if you must run it for some reason - there it is.

In more recent Safari versions where the button has gone away, just right-click or Control-click an item in the list. The context menu will show a Clear all… choice there.

Launch "Console" and have it running side by side with Safari.

Here is another small tip, for downloading files like csv, pdf, mp3 etc, that are opened and viewable in a Safari tab/window and have been accessed directly through their urls (e.g. the url address in safari address bar is something like: www.example.com/mycsv.csv, or www.example.com/mymovie.mp4, and so on...) Go and click inside the address bar, so it ...

From Aptoide (emphasis mine): Aptoide is the largest independent Android app store and allows one to setup and manage your own Android Store. You cannot directly run Android software on an Apple product. Look for Minecraft on the iOS app store or download it directly from the official site for OS X.

If you open Safari in private browsing mode, all cookies you may have are not accessible. Feel free to log in to whatever site you want and the cookies only persist for that session as you are familiar with from Firefox. If you want to script a periodic purging of all cookies, that is trivial if you use Automator to record the action of launching safari, ...

After reading https://bencollier.net/2016/03/unable-to-open-links-in-safari-mail-or-messages-on-ios-9-3/ , it seems that Booking.com's iOS app overloaded the database used by com.apple.swdc... A normal restore will not work as the corrupted database is also part of the backup. Currently, I am trying to use Decipher Phone Refresh to build a custom restore ...

Safari 9.0, released today for 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite, along side with the 10.11 El Capitan release, has introduced this natively. There are two options. If checked, ⌘-1 through ⌘-9 will switch to tab 1 through 9, respectfully. This will change the original behavior of mapping to the favorites bar bookmark 1 through 9. Those will be changed ...

You can easily disable this by installing BetterTouchTool, and then for Safari adding a new Touchpad gesture for Pinch Out with no action. Here's a screenshot:

My current rep is under 50 because I used a bounty and thus lost comment priveleges (thanks for warning me, Stack;) so I would've preferred this as a comment, but… My own experience (on 10.9) is that the service uses the default search engine selected for the default browser, so right now my own "Search with…" says "Search DuckDuckGo for…" and will open in ...
