Left click on the message. Then select "block popup ad." The move the slider which appears as directed. This gets rid of a meaningless nuisance.

Unfortunately, you can't without editing some plist files. Please refer to this older question (not marked as dupe since the overall issue/question was different) for a few answers on this issue.

If your device is running iOS 8, you can access a list of the last 5 tabs you closed. This can be accomplished by: Open Safari Press the Tabs button in the lower-right corner of Safari Press and hold the + symbol for a new tab Wait for "Recently Closed Tabs" window to pop up. Access from there. If the tabs do not appear in that list, you will have to ...

There are many ways to do this. You can of course use AutoHotKey(ahk) to define any key combo and mapping you want, which can be used in any text-editing environment, not necessarily in a url bar. So this is an overkill. (Other hotkey apps also work.) Similar to Internet Explorer(or maybe Chrome, Firefox?), Safari also uses ctrl+enter(or return) as a ...

You can use Better Touch Tool to assign custom gestures to any application. Here's an example how You this would look like in BTT (tip tap gestures to switch tabs):

High memory usage is not a reason for a machine to randomly restart, but if you say the memory usage has an effect on the frequency of it happening, the issue might be a defective RAM. There are several tools to test your RAM, a free example would be MemTest86.

I've just discovered a hidden feature in Safari search that solves my problem. The attached picture shows the solution. Safari can search both for instances 'containing' the query or those that 'start with' the query. I imagine the default is 'starts with', which is why I raised the above question.

This is the desired behavior (by Apple). The only case in which Safari searches within a word is if it's parted through capitalization. An example to explain why this makes sense. If I'd search for something like "or" it would then also find occurrences in words like "door", "therefor", "store", etc.

No. There is no way to do this at the moment.

First of all, the syntax of code may not be correct. This is how I would write it: if visible of application "Safari" is false then --Do Something end if Secondly, an app has to be already activated to have an value for boolean visible. What you might want instead is set frontmost to true.

First, if the tab bar isn't showing (it usually doesn't show unless there are multiple tabs in the window), select the 1st window you want to merge, then at the menu bar at the top of the screen click View->Show Tab Bar. Next drag the now visible tab bar to the window you want to merge with.

I tested and can't reproduce this (though I'm not trying to paste into Twitter, your issue sounds like the initial copy command is failing, so from that perspective it is working for me), but an easier workaround for sending to Twitter is selecting Copy on the bottom row of the share sheet (which copies the URL, though in a slightly different format), then ...

One of the recent version update changelogs for Tweetbot states they made a change to the share sheet, which may in turn have caused a bug that is preventing Safari from showing up. This would best be reported to the developer of the app. In iOS 8.x, a developer basically advertises "I have this type of data to be shared, what apps can share it?" The system ...

Were able to solve the issue myself. For some reason, there were a few root certificates in my login Keychain, which have been revoked and replaced with newer certs in the System Roots keychain. Deleted those certs from my login keychain and everything works fine again.

That looks like an n-dash to me, rather than a hyphen Hyphen - N-dash — typing 2 hyphens will change to an n-dash in regular text areas, if you have Smart dashes enabled in Edit > Substitutions, otherwise you could try copy/pasting this one... Safari iOS 8.1 — iPad

I had one user whose Safari would not launch after updating to Yosemite. I ruled out problems with User cache and plist, isolated plug-ins, all the stuff mentioned above. I ended up finding a know working version of the app, from another machine, and copied over the broken app. Problem solved.

Another way though Safari is good most cases (copy paste URL if its not your preferred browser and you just want a few pages read aloud): As did copying to Text Edit, after removing formatting (In text edit can use Menu Format / Make Plain text or paste to text wrangler and then copy afresh and paste to Text edit.)

In Safari: Mark text, secondary click (aka right-click), speech. Alternatively it's also in the edit menu. Settings can be adjusted in System Preferences -> Speech

You can use added hot-keys to make a whole set of different actions happen when you click a link. This is the way I have mine set in Safari Preferences… This way, a simple click will open the link in the current page, Cmd ⌘ /click will open it in a new Tab but not activate it & Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ /click will open it in a new Tab & also bring it ...

Have you tried restarting the device? This will wipe the cache, and perhaps solve your problem.

That is the only way in Safari. Create the New folder first then add bookmarks to it.

WasteNoTime is a good app for this. It is a browser extension.

I'm not sure how accurate or the usability of this would be, but it might be possible. On your website you would need a few things. A textbox of some sort that one would be able to dictate the commands into When the page loads, call the .focus() on the textbox, which will allow the user to call up dictation (Double press Fn) and tell you what they want to ...

Try this,,, tell application "Finder" if visible of process "Safari" is false then tell application "Safari" to activate end if end tell That will only work if it's running, but hidden, btw. If you simply want the script to 'fetch' Safari, just activate it without any check

Its probably an extension. You probably already know that already, but there's no advice on the internet aside from my own that has worked for me. cd ~/Library/Safari/Extensions rm [plugins you KNOW did not come from apple] The next part is key, in fact, this may be the only necessary step: nano Extensions.plist Remove everything between <dict> ...

Every piece of advice I used on the internet did not work. Even Apple's advice on removing things did not work.

Safari on OS X uses Secure Transport for SSL/TLS, the same implementation which is linked in cURL, App Store, etc. Secure Transport does not have any user configurations available. Therefore, it is not possible to modify Safari cipher suites. Anyway, Apple recently released Security Update 2015-002 which fixes this issue. Impact: An attacker with a ...

Yes. Links, browsing history, open tabs. Everything should stop syncing on the device you uncheck Safari on.

Actually, Wikipedia provided solutions for this, Wikipedia:Media help (audio and video) It is highly recommended that you use a program which is capable of playing both Vorbis audio and Theora video since these two different media formats are often in the same digital container format, Ogg.

Disabling Chat in Gmail looks like it sovled the issue for me.

Safari does not natively support OGG audio files, you need install an OGG plugin. Or just install another web browser on your phone which supports OGG files.

Safari does not support playing OGG files. I haven't checked but there are probably apps available that allow you to play OGG files, a simple App Store search of "ogg audio player" should yield some results.

If you start to type anywhere you've ever been [assuming you don't delete your history] it will start to present a list of the most-used/most common possibilities. Hitting Enter will go to the top hit; otherwise arrow down. Otherwise, if there's nothing useful in history to auto-complete & you don't step down with the arrow key… If it thinks it's a ...

Seems I finally found the solution (after trying so messing so many things up due to other solutions): Using "Internet Accounts" to add a CalDAV account for the server. As soon as I tried to add a new CalDAV account for "https://old.mynas.local" I got a "untrusted certificate - what should I do"-dialog and could successfully trust the new certificate. Then ...

JavaScript of Baidu Ad and Statistics are redirected to GitHub urls https://github.com/greatfire/ and https://github.com/cn-nytimes/ It is in fact DDoS due to large population. GitHub returns an alert page in order to stop the recursive JS running for each user. This is possibly done by GFW (Great Fire Wall) as the two URLs are not welcomed by them and ...

I believe that the downloads popover-window has a fixed width, and if there room for the download speed it will show it, but if there isn't enough room it won't show it. In most cases though, it will show the speed if you close the window and open it again.

The file that houses your reading list (and bookmarks) is called Bookmarks.plist and it is located in ~/Library/Safari/. You could restore it via TimeMachine or any other backup you are (hopefully) running.

Make sure no parts of Safari are still running Open Activity Monitor and use the search box in the top right corner to search for "safari". If there are any Safari processes running, select them and quit them using the left most toolbar icon. Once they are gone, try launching Safari again. If that doesn't work... Delete Safari's Saved Application State ...

Shut down and restart in Safe mode or restart in the Recovery drive and use Disk Utility to Repair Disk. That should give the best chance for getting Safari running again. Now download Firefox or Chrome as a backup browser for the future. If you have Time Machine running, you could revert your Home/Library/Safari to a date before the problem occurred.

If you develop a website you can add a file called an OpenSearch specification that identifies the site as having searchable content.

I have a similar problem. Last month, on one particular day, 80GB was downloaded (and another day, almost 40GB). This was definitely not something I was downloading - I don't even have 40GB of spare disk on any computer at home! After resetting router passwords (in case someone was hacking my wifi), and monitoring all my home computers, I also narrowed it ...
