I cannot confirm this. Have just tried with a bookmarklet from Instapaper and it had no problem posting a link to the page viewed. Is there a particular bookmarklet that causes you grief?

Is it safe to continue using your iPad - you should be fine. Any attempt for one App to access data from another has to go through Apple's security - which will pop up a clear message to you asking if you want to allow it and will always give a cancel button. So this grey popup was not accessing your e-mails or other personal data - probably just trying to ...

Your system could have been infected with adware and/or malware. See this Apple Support page on how to remove adware. For malware, I have relied on Sophos' free Antivirus for Mac for several years. I use it on my home machines, and my school uses it enterprise-wide on all Mac and Windows desktops, laptops and servers.

I have had the same problem trying to download midi music files. I get around the problem by downloading the link and opening the file using Finale (MakeMusic software). It is a bit of a nuisance because I cannot preview the file before downloading and opening, but at least I am successful. I hope this problem is solved by Safari in the future. Amid all ...

Safari was likely last opened to a page that had an iTunes link in it, forwarding you to the App store (similar to ads that people accidentally click on in Games). Try fully closing out the Safari session by double-clicking on the Home button on your iPad, then swipe Safari up from the Multitasker. Then, make sure the session won't reload by going to ...

Check Get Info on /Applications/Safari.app. When I had problems with Safari like this, the permissions it showed 2 entries for everyone. One was set to read-only, the other to read-write. I had not seen 2 settings for everyone before, so I set the second one to read-only. Bingo – instantly everything was full speed again. I rebooted to be sure, and all is ...

Try using Google Crome or Mozilla Firefox as it may fix the problem, because my Mac's Safari doesn't work very well for downloads but Chrome downloads well.

No, Apple Touch Icons are uploaded alongside the HTML files on the website, usually in the root folder. Safari just pulls them from here if they exist. It is up to the site owner to add them.

Is there any currently available software that can convert a Safari webarchive file into a more standard format? If you are comfortable with command line, there is a tool textutil on Mac OS for converting webarchive file to txt, html, rtf, rtfd, doc, docx, wordml, or odt. Example: textutil -convert html /Users/USERNAME/NAME.webarchive For ...

It's going to be hard to pinpoint things from one crash log. Have a look here in how to interpret kernel panics and see if you have any. If you do, log the time of each panic and list that in summary in your question (or ask a new one). Then find the Apple Knowledge base about troubleshooting kernel panics and progress through the triage steps. Lastly, ...

Update: this is not a good answer, it has significant downsides. -- It's possible, but solution is not perfect. Create new service for Safari using Automator using following AppleScript (last line is optional - it's the Del key) tell application "Safari" to tell window 1 to set current tab to (make new tab with properties ...

I don't have time to test all of this, I use a different and more complicated setup for the Linux servers I run. I also use the vmnet option from the "Pro" version and not the "Private to My Mac".

Chrome uses a combination of an internal database (LoginDatabase) and Keychain to store passwords. LoginDatabase stores some metadata, including usernames but not passwords, about each login that is stored. The site's URL, username and password are stored in Keychain. (The reason for the split is that extra metadata needs to be saved that isn't supported in ...

All your credentials are encrypted and stored using Keychain (e.g. ~/Library/Keychains/). It provides secure storage of your passwords, keys, certificates and other private data. To prevent unauthorized access to your credentials by 3rd party application, each time when keychain file is accessed, it asks for user permission to access his sensitive data. If ...

If you are downloading large files like this on a connection that isn't reliable you're best bet is probably to use a command line tool like curl. Open a Terminal window, change directory to wherever you want to download the file (for example cd ~/Desktop to save to your desktop). And then type the command curl -OC - ...

This is, technically, not an answer but might be a reason why some sites do not save passwords. They (those web sites/pages) have code in them to tell the browser to not save the password. I used to have a JavaScript bookmarklet that would (with varying levels of success) remove the code that said "don't save the passwords" but when I moved over to ...

See this bug on chromium. Essentially it boils down to security settings that are not available unless the Mac app (Chrome, in this case) is released through the Mac App Store. Note that due to the way Handoff is implemented in Chrome/Mac, the current tab from Chrome/Mac can be opened in Safari/iOS. When you are in Handoff range and have an open tab in ...

As of Safari 8, favicons no longer show up on the tab bar, to my disappointment. One solution is to use SafariStand & EasySIMBL. Once installed (see instructions on the SafariStand site), open the SafariStand settings and check "Show Icon on Tab Bar". This will return favicons to the tabs.

I found the solution for this bug. It is indeed a bug in Yosemite that hasn't been addressed till now. This fixes it: Open Network Preferences Go to Advanced Go to TCP/IP tab Change "Configure IPv6" to "Local-link only" Restart the computer Hopefully Apple will fix this annoyance in the near future. Until then, this solution works.

It really depends on which browser you are using... I would recommend not using Safari on 10.6.8, since it is unsupported by Apple at this point, and the older versions of Safari have known compatibility / security issues. The best way to "upgrade" would just be to install a third party browser (Chrome or FireFox, which I linked to below) and those issues ...

You can add a file extension to the list of "safe" extensions. Once that is done, safari will launch whatever application is associated with that file type. This is done by creating the file ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.DownloadAssessment.plist containing the file extension you want opened. Here is an example, which solves the problem for .torrent ...

You can just drag the link to the Finder icon in the Dock, and hold for a couple of seconds. That’s show you all the available windows of Finder, then you can select the one you want to drag the web-loc to. As @Phoenix mentioned in comment, you can aways ⌘+Tab to switch between open apps. Another way would be to use Mission Control, the shortcut of which is ...

I had the exact same problem! I got the following solution, courtesy of a call to Apple.

Change the Block Cookies setting to Always Block. Close Safari from the app ...

I've had this happen every time with OS X 10.10.2 and below. It has somewhat lessened with the 10.10.3 update. But it does still happen. The only way I've found around it is to make sure some of the site loads on the tab before creating a new tab (or even switching to an existing tab). Sorry, I was hoping to just post this as a comment, but not enough ...
