Applications :: When I Click Links In My Mail They Open In Safari?
Oct 6, 2010
Using mail is great. My default web browser is Firefox. But when I click links in my mail they open in safari. Is there a way to make it open in a new firefox window or tab if firefox is already running?
so on igoogle.com i click on a link, it opens in a new window, this is really annoying, i scoured the prefrences but i cant find a option to change it. FF opens links in a new tab, so can safari open links in a new tab?
Just purchased a new MacBook Air for my wife. While it is a huge step-up from the previous macbook, we've run into a very frustrating problem. Every now and then Safari will no longer accept any click on links or the ability to enter data into fields. You tap and click and it's like a brick wall--no response. We've tried forcing a refresh of that page, still won't work. If I quit Safari and then go back to the page, it's works. But unless I quit the app, it just remains an unclickable webpage.
Any thoughts?? I've never encountered this before and it is hard to duplicate as it is not consistent with specific sites or work flow.
I have three mail accounts setup in Apple Mail app: Gmail, work email and Me.com email. Whenever I receive an email with a hyperlink in it I hover over the link and it displays the hyperlink address with "blocked" added to the beginning. Once I click on the link I receive a message which says "Error: No associated application could be found". This happens no matter which email account I am accessing and works with both http and https type links. I recall having a similar problem using MS Outlook on a Windows machine.
By accident I activated the mailto handler on google chrome, to be handled by Gmail. I deactivated it successfully but I can't reactivate the mailto links to be opened by the mail app.I googled it and tried almost everything without any success.
How do you determine what application will open up document links in Safari? I am creating a website with many links to xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, doc, docx documents. When I click on one of these links, it either downloads the file if I have published the site to a host site, or brings me to the file in Finder if the website is accessed from a local drive. In other words, the site was exported and not published. But if I click on a link to a Pages, Numbers or Keynote file, it opens it up the linked document in that application regardless of whether I'm going from the published site or from the exported site on a local folder. I'd like the above Microsoft file types to automatically open up in their appropriate apps as well.
I know how to set what application gets opened on your Mac when you open a file depending on the file extension, but is there a way to tell Safari how to do this too?? For example, I've got doc and docx files set up to open Pages when I open those types of files which works fine on my Mac. But the same behavior doesn't hold true when opening these documents from Links on a web page in Safari. I thought this method would flow through and work the same way when opening document links in Safari, but it apparently doesn't.

I think the users have been asking this question for more than two years. Is there a way to open links in the same tab automatically? Its annoying when I am using apple products and have to click three times for a task that is easily made with a single click in other products (chrome, firefox....).
I am using Windows 7 and recently switched to Safari, when I try to open an email link in Safari it takes me to google chrome, how do I fix this? I switched my default browser to safari and looked in settings for any mail options but cant find
Adobe recommends downgrading from Safari 5.1.7 as this version will not open pdfs in Snow Leopard. Where can I find downloads of older (pre 5.1.7) versions of Safari? The apple site keeps forcing me to the download for the most recent 5.1.7 version.
I am trying to complete a site on iweb and I have one issue that I cant seem to figure out. I have different links on the side of the page and I would like those links to open in a new window when clicked on instead of the same window.
I have Mac OS 10.4.11, and Safari 3.2.1. Safari crashes if I try to Cmd-click a link to get it to open in a new tab or right-click a bookmark and choose to open it in a new tab or a new window. It did not do that before I got the Safari update. I also cannot seem to get any content into more than 3 tabs without it crashing. Is there any way to fix it?
I can't seem to find the right preference order to make it so when I click on a link that should open a new tab, it instead keeps opening up a new window. I have the first and third option checked in the tabs preference but it doesn't seem to matter. I might be delirious from playing with leopard all day/night, but I just want to figure this one last option out before bed. I Would like to open links in new tab WITHOUT having to hold down the command key.
Some semi-Flash-based links do not work in Safari(I'm using 5.0.3) causing me to switch to...pretty much any other browser like Chrome when needed. For example, when playing Whirled by Three Rings, when trying to navigate the non-Flash menus, equipping/"Wearing" avatars or pets and furniture and stuff do not work.
I'm using the Safari Beta but cannot locate a way to make links appear in a new tab rather than a new window. In the prefs it has the ability to place links from other Apps into a new tab, but it appears the only way to do that within Safari is by CMD + click. Is there anyway to make anything clicked open in a new tab instead?
The same links work when i access them from the same internet connection on my windows destop computer,the only download links that would work when clicked are rapidshare ones,even apple.com links do not work i often have to use save link as sometimes i do not get that option..
I recently switched to mac. I am using Entourage and these Office Reminders pop up on reminders on emails or calendar events. Well, what's annoying, is that I can not click these events or open them. E.g. I am alerted to a conference call, I click it to open and grab the dial in number and nothing happens. I even tried command+O and nothing.
I recently installed snow leopard to a new hard drive. Before I formatted the hard drive with leopard on it, there was duplicate everything when I right clicked and used open with, but after I formatted the old drive, most of them disappeared... except for one. Right now, I'm seeing two VLC players and I don't know why. I tried opening a file with each of them and they both point to the same VLC so I was wondering how I can remove the duplicate.
I hate MS Word, but I find that I can't get rid of it just yet. I love Pages, but I need the thesaurus capabilities of word. I need to be able to right click on a word and have synonyms come up in that very menu, no opening dictionary or another pop-up.
My workflow entails repetitive tasks that would be so much easier if I could set Leopard's (Safari's) default double-click functionality to select ALL text within the Google search box instead of having to use a triple-click. Does anyone know how to make this change to Leopard/Safari?
since I updated to Safari 5, the right-click does not work anymore. Not in textareas, not on selected Text or anywhere on a page. It is working when I right-click the Bookmarks on Bookmarks-Bar above the tabs.
When going to a linked page in Safari I usually want to open it in a new tab or a new window and occasionally to do other things with it. So I'm used to right-clicking on links to bring up a contextual menu offering me:
Open Link in New Window Open Link in New Tab Download Linked File Download Linked File As... Add Link to Bookmarks...
Copy Link: I noticed the loss of this menu when my wife wanted me to look at web pages she had found related to a possible holiday. Using Safari in her account on our iMac, I found no menu appeared when I right-clicked on a link. I checked she had the "secondary button" set up OK in the mouse preferences and I also found right-clicking worked OK elsewhere. I then tried other ways of making the menu appear on a link (CTRL-clicking or holding down the left, primary button); neither worked!................
