~/Library/Safari/Form Values is a plist file, but it's encrypted with AES-128. The encryption key is stored in the System Keychain as Safari Forms AutoFill. You can decrypt this file with the decryption tool found here: http://encase-forensic-blog.guidancesoftware.com/2013/06/safari-form-values-decryptor.html

It is certainly possible to make changes in iOS Safari without a Jailbreak. Don't know exactly about Reader View, but the general algorithm is: make backup to your computer; decrypt backup file with special tools; find Safari and edit its contents. Also for Safari you can use plugin CustomReader II.

I just solved this problem on my iPad.... Go to the passwords and auto fill option... (2nd line down in your screen shot above) and select remember passwords and the auto fill option.

I actually found the culprit... In order to find the error I tried several other numbers with ⌘ + Shift and found ⌘ + Shift + 6 triggering a screen recording interface I hadn't seen before. Opening this interfaces options I found it originated from CloudApp and there in CloudApps "Keyboard Shortcuts" I found it (see image). CloudApp must have integrated ...

I uninstalled all extensions in Safari and the problem went away. I've not re-installed 2 of the 3 extensions I had and the problem has not come back. Possibly there is something wrong with AdBlock Plus.

I was able to remove Spigot from existing user profiles in Chrome on Mac OS Yosemite, but whenever I created a new profile, the Spigot extensions would reappear. I thought I had tried everything, but finally examined this folder: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/External Extensions There was a file called external_extensions.json that contained ...

I don't understand the full interplay, but rebooting will fix cookie retention [presumably held in cache] - that is separate from login details remembered by Keychain & also Form Values etc. If you really want a clean sweep, try OnyX (free/donationware) > Cleaning > Internet - choose what you need to delete from there… Safari has its own simpler ...

Apple most likely stopped Safari for Windows due to it's small marketshare on Windows and lack of explicit reason to continue it. The browser never had anything special and didn't provide any source of income either. Chrome and Midori both did WebKit on Windows anyway ( at the point of discontinuation ). Nonetheless they still keep up the WebKit Project ...

Who says you can't download Safari for Windows? Get it directly from the Apple servers. http://appldnld.apple.com/Safari5/041-5487.20120509.INU8B/SafariSetup.exe

I wouldn't expect reinstalling the system using the Recovery HD to cause any significant problems. Minor things that come to mind are reinstallation of fonts in /Library/Fonts if they'd been previously removed, and the possibility of needing to reactivate copy-protected software, e.g. reentering the Microsoft Office serial number. But you've no doubt faced ...

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 personally like the keyboard shortcut used in Chrome and Opera: Option+Cmd+(left/right arrow keys). This can be assigned in System Preferences-->Keyboard-->Shortcuts-->App Shortcuts. Press the plus button and add a pair for Safari with the command names "Show [Previous/Next] Tab" and then type the key sequences you want to use. Pretty handy. Good luck!

As other answers said... Websites may NOT take your MAC address. If Privacy is your concern, find a VPN app on the App Store that guarantees your privacy. This may make your connection slower. In addition, if you find a bad VPN app, then the server might actually be recording your data.


2

Websites in general can't get your MAC address: The MAC address, by TCP/IP standards, is never communicated outside of the local-area network to which it pertains Some websites could theoretically obtain that kind of information via ActiveX, or a Java applet, but neither is available on stock iOS Safari. If anonymity is your concern, there are ...

It isn't possible for a website to get the MAC address from an iPhone or iPad. For that to work, Apple would have to expose that information through JavaScript. They haven't done that. Don't take my word for it though, try a web search for something like "javascript get ios mac address" and you'll find lots of people asking how to do it and lots of people ...

For those that are really looking for an easy answer, disconnect from local network (Wifi/ ethernet). Open Safari and then force quit it to loose the cache. Then restart safari (it'll try to connect to the suspicious phishing pages but has no cached version. Go to menu -> safari -> reset safari and hit okay on popup to delete all history/ cache/ cookies ...

I created a script, DeleteSafariTabs.command, and made it executable so I can just double-click the script. This method leaves your history and bookmarks intact, and reliably deletes the previously open tabs. # Most apple apps (if not all) have a file inside of # ~/Saved Application State/ so by deleting that we # get rid of the state of open windows ...

That is the point of Private Browsing (Safari's calls it Private Browsing, Chrome calls it Incognito). When you use Private Browsing, Safari shouldn't be saving anything at all. The whole idea is that it leaves no trace.

Soon after I realised that I with no plugins installed, I had the Welcome page appear, which changed what I googled for. That helped me find: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6663182?start=0&tstart=0 sudo find ~ $TMPDIR.. -exec chflags -h nouchg,nouappnd,noschg,nosappnd {} + -exec chown -h $UID {} + -exec chmod +rw {} + -exec chmod -h -N {} + -type ...

Unfortunately the range of extensions available for Safari is pretty limited, and no one has written such an extension at this point. Also having written an extension or two for myself in the past, there is no way to access the tabs and colour them in any way, so it would not be possible. It may be worth looking at another browser such as Google Chrome, or ...

I was having the same problem, about twice a day. I installed Little Snitch to see what servers were involved, and I noticed a Dashlane server was one of them. I disabled the Dashlane extension in Safari and it hasn't happened for the last 24 hours.

Try this in Terminal defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugConfirmTossingUnsubmittedFormText -integer -1 Which seems slightly odd, as the opposite is -bool false but that's what "Secrets" shows for the 2 alternatives. http://secrets.blacktree.com/edit?id=2467 ought to be the page with the defaults data for that, but the entire site is coming up 404 today.

If you click on the "Missing Plug-in" message in the Safari window it should display a pop-up message that says. This is telling you that you need a plugin that allows you to view WMP (or Windows Media Player) content. This page contains content of “application/x-ms-wmp” type. You do not have the plug-in required to view this content. This page may ...

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.

You could try using this one I took from my copy of Safari, the latest version available on OS X 10.10... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Application-Group</key> ...

Click on Safari. Click on Preferences. Click on General. Go to first choice "Safari opens with" select "a new window". Mine was selected on the choice of "Safari opens with" "a new private window". This had been driving me crazy for a month.

deleting it from my bookmarks worked for me. backstory: typing yah for yahoo.com autofilled yahooligans.com (safari 8.0.7 on yosemite 10.10.4). fix: found it deep in a sub menu in the bookmarks folder and erased it. now typing yah fills yahoo.com. woo hoo and thanks!

I too miss that, I actually use Chrome at the moment, and it was one of the big things I missed. Unfortunately there is no way to recover this behaviour, Safari is a much faster browser option on OS X than Chrome or Firefox at the moment. I choose to use Chrome still, but you might just get used to it...

It is not possible to sync your Safari Reading List without iCloud. However iCloud is a free service, I would suggest just signing up for it. Alternatively you could use another reading list service like Readability etc.. but they all work via a online service.

You should probably try clearing the browsing data on all of your devices connected to that iCloud account. iCloud now syncs your bookmarks and history across all devices. It's possible that particular site suggestion is from a separate device.

Under Safari/Preferences/Security click the last box that states "Internet Plug-ins: Allow Plug-ins" So simple and it worked for me running Safari on 2008 MBP with OX X Yosemite

Alright- I've figured it out. I'm not even remotely bright, but here is the problem: The reason that autocomplete keeps filling in the websites and bringing it up as a "top hit" and suggesting things is because you have a link to that site saved in your bookmark folder. Step 1: Delete all the sites from your bookmark folder that you do not want to show ...

When this happens, you can gather detailed logs and submit it to Apple for a bug fix or for specific support if you wish. Open Activity Monitor, select Safari and then use the gear to "Run System Diagnostic" on the safari process. This will make a comprehensive system snapshot that you can pick apart if you wish or keep it around until you have 10 ...

I've been using Applescript to do this since before they added this feature: http://hea-www.harvard.edu/~fine/OSX/safari-tabs.html It pops up a search dialog, you enter your search, and it immediately activates a single matching tab, or gives you a dialog to select from a list of matching tabs. It brings the window to front and makes this the active tab in ...

Alternatively, if you don't want to add more apps to your devices, you can use Pinterest for an easy bookmark storage location that you can access from any device, any browser. I save by pinning, you can make boards secret, and when working on a collaborative project, invite others to pin to it. No need to mess with your device or app or browser settings. ...

In Safari 8 the accepted answer no longer seems to work as history isn't within the bookmarks any more. Instead, there are options in the History menu to show and edit history. As pointed out in a comment above by Loïc Wolff you can use the keyboard combination Opt+Cmd+2 to show history and a search field is available at the bottom right.

If you're really scared, yes. WebGL allows web developers to code shaders which run unprotected in the GPU. This can cause many security issues because there aren't really any antiviruses to protect against GPU infections. The risks aren't too great because there are organizations such as Google and Khronos working on making it much safer. These ...
