OS X :: History Setting Although Set To " Remove History Items After One Day " Does Not?

Oct 2, 2009

I hope this hasn't been covered elsewhere (I can't find it if it has).My problem is that the history setting although set to " Remove history items after one day " does not. I Have reset Safari 4.0.3 and it still doesn't delete the history. Applecare can't seem to solve the problem either. Please help, although this isn't a major problem it is very annoying. This was happening before SL and I was hoping SL upgrade may have fixed this but it hasn't.

Desktops :: Can't Remove Screws To IMac Memory Compartment?

Oct 31, 2009

I have a 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo 20 inch iMac (early 2006). I have purchased additional memory that I want to install but when I try to remove the cross point screws holding the cover plate over the memory compartment they will not budge. I am afraid to squirt them with WD40 since I fear overspray would probably go into the memory compartment. I am also afraid to "bump" the screws by tapping the end of the screwdriver with a hamer since the shock might damage the drives. Have anyone of you had this difficulty? If so how did you solve it.

OS X :: Remove Unwanted Connected Guest / Remove From System With Disable Sharing

Jun 9, 2008

I've just noticed that in my Finder window sidebar, under "Shared", I have a character called Thomson listed. I don't know any Thomson and I bought the machine, an MBA, brand new. However, I did have an engineer instal the machine in my apartment and can only assume he's the mysterious Thomson. Anyway, whoever he/she is, I don't want him/her on my machine as Shared & "connected as guest". The point is, I cannot find a way to delete Thomson!! Can anyone help? I've tried System Preferences>Security and Accounts and there's no trace of Thomson there. Right clicking on Thomson in the sidebar of Finder only gives me the option to Open and Get Info. Most annoying, this. There MUST be a way to delete a Sharing but totally unwanted guest....

OS X :: Want To Delete History?

Dec 26, 2009

I found this in archives, but it did not help. I want to delete history. I have FF set to delete history after zero days, and I can "clear private data", but when I start to type in the browser window history pages appear in a drop-down. I unchecked the FF box for storing things I typed in boxes. If I go to "tools" I get > Web search, Downloads, Add on's, error console, page info, clear private data.Preferences is under "firefox" tab.I say all that cause the forums all say look under "tools" for "clear History".It's not there. There is no specific "clear history".The "clear private data" is not clearing out everything, just the stuff in the history viewer, but that is not there anyway as it stores for zero days.

OS X :: Transferring Browser History?

Oct 29, 2009

just a quick question. I've been downloading a lot of videos from a website and a way I kept track of the stuff that I had already downloaded was by not clearing my cookies or history. So the videos that I had already downloaded would appeared grayed out on the website. I now need to do a system restore on my Macbook, and I really don't want my browser to reset. Is there any way to restore and still backup my history/cache so my browser won't reset the clicked links already?

OS X :: Clear Safari Address Bar History?

Mar 9, 2007

This is probably very simple, but how can I remove the history that resides in Safari's address bar?

I guess I could "reset Safari", but then I'd lose all my cookies, and I don't want to do that.

I already emptied the cache, cleared history, restarted Safari, even turned on Private Browsing. The darn address bar history is still there.
