Option-command-A is just a shortcut for showing the resources tab of the web inspector. It still works, but you have to enable the develop menu first. Check Preferences > Advanced > Show Develop menu in menu bar. Open the resources tab of the web inspector. Look for a resource for the video under the other folder. It's named videoplayback in YouTube. If it ...

This is not an ideal solution but a quite good working workaround. Open Safari then go to Preferences. Activate the Debug option (Show develop menu in menu bar) EDIT: Instead of activating the develop menu, you have to open a terminal and activate the debug menu with defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu -bool true Thanks @Collin C. ...

Safari gets reinstalled: Sometimes when you download and install a Combo Updater. Always when you reinstall the OS. You could also use a tool like Pacifist to get the app from the install package (or Time Machine from your backup), but it depends on how you lost the app whether you want to go in like a surgeon or have the deluxe treatment. Unless you are ...

On iOS, HTML5's local storage is not available in private browsing mode, which means you can detect it by attempting to save something to local storage and catching the exception with the following JavaScript: try { localStorage.test = 2; } catch (e) { alert('You are in Private Browsing mode'); } Modified from http://stackoverflow.com/a/17741714/ On OS ...

Go to Window → Merge All Windows. In Safari, this merges other windows into the currently active window. In Finder, this merges the current windows into other window. Alternatively, you can show the tab bar with View → Show Tab Bar. This lets you drag the tab when only one tab in a window is open.

You need to drag a tab - Safari won't let you drag an entire window into another one. You can hit ⌘T to create a new empty tab (thus making the tab interface visible), then drag your original tab to the other window.

Note that if you use iCloud on a Mac and your iPad (or other iOS devices) (the same account), open tabs will appear on the iPad and vice versa in the iCloud Tabs section (next to bookmarks on iPad). This could be where such a suggestion is coming from. I would suggest clearing history and cookies/data on all devices using iCloud (yes you will lose logged in ...

I could suggest something more evil : Enable parental controls and use the logs ! Someone on Apple Support asked if private browsing disabled logging. It appears no, the parents controls will still log the websites. Even if the sneaky kids enable the private browsing, the logs will spill the beans !

This research paper reported by the Washington Post and Ars Technica says yes. Though it was only tested on "old" Macs (Late PPC, early Intel)

Make sure you don't have autocomplete=off in any of the forms. This is the primary way that a website can tell a browser not to save passwords. By default, if the website doesn't have anything, the browser will be happy to save passwords, so odds are that your website contains something like that somewhere.

Just adding support to find an answer to this issue. I suppose in the meantime do this: defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool NO

Safari 4.1.3 is the last version of Safari for Mac OS X Tiger, so you're out of luck on that end. Furthermore, Chrome and Firefox (in their current versions) do not support Tiger either. You can try looking for Mac OS X Leopard, since Safari 5.1.10 (the last version of Safari for Leopard) is available for download, but that's as far as your computer will ...

I think what Rob is getting at and what I think might be happening is that you have some malware (virus, etc) on your Mac (yes they do exist) that could be adding things to web pages. It could be as simple as a browser extension or plug-in with some hijacking code in it, or something more system wide. you could try resetting Safari (from the Safari menu ...

Safari’s Private Browsing doesn’t work in the same way as the other browser Private Browsing. For example, Chrome’s Incognito Mode creates a separate new session that all the data will be deleted after the browsing session (the website can still track your actions from the IP address in that mode). While Safari forbid website from creating/writing a file ...

Recent versions of Safari do not appear to display the lock icon or certificate unless all content loaded by the page is https. For example, if the page URL is https but it loads a JavaScript file via http, no lock icon. The only workaround I've found so far is to run the openssl command in Terminal, like this: openssl s_client -connect ...

Found the solution. I searched for keychain in spotlight and found something called Keychain Access. All the passwords were here under Login. When I deleted them from here, it removed them from Safari as well. Safari's preference to Remove All just removes the locally stored passwords in Safari and not the ones that are in the user keychain. Additionally, ...

You won't be able to do it in AppleScript : Safari only does something on open windows. You should definitely look at Command line scripts like curl. The AppleScript to call a shell command takes the form: set variableName to do shell script "command" So using your AlertURLString you'd want something like: set curlOutput to do shell script "curl '" ...

In most native OS X applications, the key presses Cmd-Shift-[ and Cmd-Shift-] will cycle left and right through tabs, respectively. Safari understands these. If you use something like BetterTouchTool, then you can assign gestures (such as a three-finger swipe left or right) to these key presses, and get tab cycling across most of OS X.
