Presumably, the Office installer can modify/update the Microsoft Silverlight.plugin (which is installed in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/), which Safari and Chrome could potentially be using. It's primarily just a precaution against updating files which an application is actively using. [EDIT] After further investigation, it looks like it's actually the fact ...

The setting was called "Confirm before closing multiple tabs or windows", but it was removed in 10.7 when Resume was introduced. defaults write com.apple.Safari ConfirmClosingMultiplePages -bool true doesn't work anymore either. The part of Resume where application state is kept after quitting was disabled by default in 10.8, but you can reenable it from ...

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 ...

The answer is no, Safari doesn't cache pages - it does however cache elements that make up a page when the rules that the web server associates with each element allows caching. You can see this on your specific pages by turning on the Develop menu in Safari Preferences: As you can see from this picture, the page where your question is posted allows many ...

Update: Since the release of Safari 7.0.3 Apple finally gives us an option to turn off safari notification prompts. Yeah ! To disable safari notifications go to Preferences within Safari. Click the notifications tab and uncheck "Allow websites to ask for permission to send push notifications". And voilà. Update end. The explanation below is only valid ...

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.

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)

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 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 !

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, ...

Safari has a reading list function to save articles for later reading while offline. Have you investigated that option for some of the easier pages that are static and amenable to reading offline. Xcode has an option to cache various reference libraries for offline viewing and I personally much prefer that interface over a web browser due to search ability ...

Open console (⌥⌘C or Develop > Show Error Console), paste this code: (function() { var el = document.createElement('div'), docEl = document.documentElement; el.innerText = 'Go to fullscreen view'; el.setAttribute('style', 'position: fixed; top: 10%; left: 10%; padding: 30%; background: #000; color: #fff; opacity: .7; cursor: pointer;') ...

I just encountered the same problem after downloading a piece of software from CNET. I just tried downloading a tool from CNET (the app was Time Out: link on CNET), and the CNET downloader's 2nd page (which looks idential to a EULA and even says "I accept the terms and conditions) actually contains a shady acceptance of installing all SearchME extensions in ...

As you may see, websites that keep the music running appear as the music app (here on iOS 6) It uses the HTML5 audio feature. In the website you gave (coffitivity.com). They use the JPlayer plugin for jquery to use the HTML5 audio API.

I've since solved the problem, though I'm not sure if this is the right answer for everyone. The problem seemed to come from the certificate automatically generated from apple (com.apple.idms.appleid.prd.[large character string]). A quick Google search didn't tell me what this certificate was for, but I'm sure that deleting it was probably not the best ...

This is the easiest way... tell application "Safari" if not (exists document 1) then reopen activate set URL of document 1 to "https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibooks/id364709193" delay 3 do JavaScript "document.getElementsByClassName('lockup product application')[0].childNodes[3].onclick()" in document 1 end tell

Upgrading to latest software version is generally a good idea for security and performance reasons. Specifically Safari 6.1 brings its lot of security fixes: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6000?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US.

The fullscreen YouTube uses of its website, is not a "real fullscreen" feature. It just maximize the size of the video to the size of the webcontent. So unlike Vimeo (for example) you won't get a real fullscreen without YouTube updating it's webplayer (or you using the YouTube app) .

AFAIK it's no longer possible. Tried looking at the contents of window.getSelection() by remote debugging my iPhone through Safari. Text is indeed deselected. But even visually, I'm able to see that text is deselected when you tap a link or open the bookmarks menu. In regards to describing this as "broken", I suppose it's a matter of how you look at it. It ...

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 ...

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 ...

For a minute there I thought you were asking the same question again as last time. But realise now you want to know how to use Inspect Element to construct your own code. In the example you give: document.forms[WHATGOESHERE?].click() The WHATGOESHERE would be the form name. i.e document.forms['theFormName'].click() Your website in their wisdom has ...
