I see your issue. Unfortunately, I have noticed that Apple has broken several aspects of webpage rendering on iPadOS, leaving several minor visual quirks that didn't exist in Safari 12 for iPad. Although it is very annoying that they broke Safari, unfortunately, we have to live with it in the meantime. What I would do is create a script that will increase ...

When you allow Safari to "update settings", the certificate for that web site is added to a list of trusted certificates in your login keychain for web-based TLS (SSL) traffic, but the exception will be limited in scope since the certificate is not trusted for other uses, like S/MIME, code signing, IPsec encryption, etc. In addition to using the Keychain ...

I just ran into this problem as well, I found that it was only happening on my MacBook with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. If this is true for you as well then you can turn the password prompt off by going to System Preferences > Touch ID and unchecking the box next to Password Autofill.

General tab in Safari preferences. Open “safe” files after downloading In Safari, automatically open the listed types of files but not software. https://support.apple.com/en-in/guide/safari/ibrw1072/12.0/mac/10.14.5 I don't know if you count right click as "hunting around", but you can right click on an empty part of the PDF and select "open with ...

Try adding Safari to Catalina's new security restrictions at: >System Preferences>Security&Privacy>Privacy>Full Disk Access

When you enter your password and press Update Settings, what really happens is that the certificate presented by that web site is added to the Certificates set in your login keychain. Your password is needed in order for Safari to have permission to add something to your keychain. If you open up Keychain Access.app, select the login keychain and then the ...

Well the only solution I have found for that issue is to serve the website in safari private mode. Than safari still complain that the connecton is not private but you can hit "deatils" and than "open website". With this workaround its not needed to edit /etc/hosts

Enable parental controls in System Preferences and black list Safari on Mojave and older. On Catalina it’s called screen time, but you can blocks apps like a safari there as well. If you need the high security option, get the self control app. Warning, you will not be able to use the internet or blocked sites until the time you enter passes. If you ...

As of Safari 12, all options for doing so have been removed: The Appearance panel is (long) gone The defaults keys are no longer respected CSS @font-face definitions are limited to a built-in whitelist of local() values, ignoring any other fonts installed on the system, which is part of a broad package of anti-fingerprinting measures Taken together, this ...

I am already on 10.14.6 so can't confirm this but have downloaded 10.14.6 Update (I didn't check the Combo Update) and looking the .pkg with Suspicious Package shows it includes Safari version 12 not version 13. Note it is 12.1.2 not 12.1.1 as you now have. Mojave 10.14.6 Supplemental Update also contains Safari 12.1.2. It isn't clear why you aren't ...

Holding esc can stop many pages from loading/ progressing. You can also disable JavaScript in Develop menu (safari preferences → advanced, enable it) if such popups are asking for login etc. This works only if the content loads without JS, or before banner is added. You can install content blockers, ad blockers which can zap the troubling elements from ...

It only does that in fullscreen. I don't know of any switch for it. Personally, I'd just never run it in fullscreen.

The concept of a Safari content blocker is the perfect way to set this up. Here is one such app that is programmed to let you use the native iOS browser and selectively block JavaScript - whether it’s a named script or per site. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/pro-script/id1275541103 This isn’t something that’s easy to do yourself from iOS without adding ...

It's a radical way to solve it, but that's how I did it. Export the bookmarks.HTML using File menu in Safari. Then start cleaning up the bookmarks, reading list and favourites from all the devices. On Macs it's easy to do using "Edit bookmarks" and right-click on an item on reading list to clear all. How to clear ALL items from Safari's reading list? ...

I noticed this problem a while ago, but didn't dig into it until now. I am using iOS 13.3 and trying to get tabs from 10.13.6. The Apple support page clarifies what should work and what will not work: iCloud Tabs works between devices running iOS 13 or iPadOS and macOS Mojave 10.14.4 or later, or between devices running iOS 12 or earlier and macOS ...

I’m going to avoid stating that your baking web site is garbage and that it’s not your firewall or anything you can change (other than banks), so let’s go to a nice site that can show you if your chosen browser and settings allow cookies to function. Then you can make your own opinion of what your bank’s site is telling you: https://www.w3schools.com/js/...

If there's any hint of "best viewed in these browsers" on the site, it's good to use them. You can "empty cache" using alt+command+E or by using Develop Menu in Safari. Also, try turning off "Prevent cross-site tracking" to see any effect. You can turn it back on later, if you want. Some websites use third-party content providers. A third-party content ...
