comment Using terminal to get current fan speed?
I'm running 10.8.5 on an iMac and my spindump report doesn't include any mention of "Fan speed" or even "fan".

comment Sourcing a replacement graphics card for an iMac
Shame. Woulda thought that repair shops would have access to some kind of manifest for each model though! Guess there would be limited practical need for them.

Thanks @cksum that's great to know. Is there anywhere to find "part manifest" lists for Apple products?

You need to use software that sets up a "kiosk mode". Check out this question (which has an answer) apple.stackexchange.com/questions/97471/…

comment How to view response in Safari Web Developer?
Fair enough, this sounds like maybe a bug in Safari. Are you sure that the server's response has ended (and closed the connection?)

comment iPhone 4S speaker not working for apps but works for ringer
This might be a silly question, but have you set your "vibrate" switch away from the silent mode? (pull it towards you?) And you've surely tried using the volume buttons to turn it up. (Silly questions, but might be worth adding these details to the question)

I don't know how to solve your exact problem with Safari, but perhaps side-stepping the issue by using a proxy like Charles would be the most pragmatic way forward?

Thanks, awarding this answer the bounty because of correctly suggesting that hardware is the problem, and linking to an excellent guide, relevant to my machine model. Cheers!
