I upgraded to 10.10.1 and now I can only reboot to Safari mode and enable parental controls on guest user is greyed.

enter image description here

Does anyone know how to get the real guest user account back?

  • so setting it up in the system preferences users does not work ? – Ruskes Nov 21 '14 at 15:48

  • Thanks, the Guest User is enabled, but the Parental controls is grayed out ? delete that account and try again. – Ruskes Nov 21 '14 at 16:01

    BTW This release is a POS. My laptop keyboard no longer works with an external plugged in. – jeremyjjbrown Nov 21 '14 at 16:30
  • That is why I am still on 10.9.5 and waiting as usual for 3-5 months for them to iron things out. There is nothing on 10.10 that I must have urgently :) – Ruskes Nov 21 '14 at 16:34

If FileVault is enabled the guest user can only use Safari because they can't access the encrypted disk partition the system resides on.
