MacBook Pro :: Tab - Back Button - Address Bar - Does Not Open The Page

1. when I click on the tab button or command tab nothing happens (it does not open a tab).

2. When I attempt to click the back button same result, nothing happens. Now, I can use the delete button to go back to the previous page.

3. Clicking on the home button does nothing as well. For example it will display the home page, [URL] in address window, but it actually does not open the page. The same applies to the google search bar. When I type a search word, the address appears in the address bar of safari but without any results. It is also happens when type directly into the address bar. It seems that the toolbar just locks up. I have emptied the cache, reset safari, deleted the plist and still nothing. Any suggestions?

IWeb 09 :: Navigation Bar - One Tab / Page Not Working
I have created a website and uploaded. All is fine, but in my Navigation bar my 2nd last page is having issues. Once you click on it you cannot click back to any of the previous pages (if that makes sense) My website is here: [URL] It is the 'Contact Me' page. You can click on the page, but once you do, you cannot go back an view another page. I am very new to the whole IWeb thing and am still trying to find my feet with alot of it. Does anyone know what i have done wrong?

Mac Safari :: How Can I Put The Tab Close Button Back On The Right
This is driving me crazy. Apple moved the close button on the tabs to the left of the tab... (Windows version retains the right-side close). I can no longer close several tabs sequentially with a bunch of quick clicks, because the things resize and my mouse location is no longer accurate!! That said, I'm not sure how putting them on the right makes this better... Did they not resize before?

Either way, I want to be able to click without moving the mouse to close successive tabs. Can I get this functionality back in any way?

Applications :: How To Make A New Tab In Safari Start In The Address Bar
I'm finding it slightly annoying that in Safari 5.0, whenever I hit CMD+T to open a new tab, my cursor automatically starts in the google search box on the web page, and not in the address bar. Not only that, but I can't simply hit SHIFT-TAB to go backwards to the address bar.

I'm a designer, so I'm constantly using shortcuts, not only in my design programs, but also in Safari, iTunes, etc. It would be nice to see a fix for this, so I can keep my hands on the keyboard, and off of my mouse.

Mac Safari :: Disappearing Tab Bar When Open New?
I got a new Mac and a fresh install of Snow Leopard. I don't remember this happening before in 10.5's Safari 4 so it might be 10.6 specific. What happens is that occasionally when I open a new tab, the tab bar would still be hidden (like it is when there is only 1 tab). I can still navigate tabs using the menu but the bar itself isn't visible. Only way to get the bar to show up again is to restart Safari. Seems like a strange problem.

Mac Safari :: No Reader Button On Address Bar
I've installed Safari 5 on both Mac and Windows machines. There is no Reader button in either version. I went to the customize toolbar function and found no Reader button there either. Finally, I opened the Help file which said that the button is to the right of the address bar - it's not. Where is this mysterious Reader feature?

Mac Safari :: Address Bar Gone And I Can't Get It Back / What To Do?
I go to "customize toolbar" and select the basic configuration and drag it into the toolbar, and I see the plus sign, but it doesn't stick. I HATE Firefox because it's always updating and asking me questions, but I have to use it until I can figure this out.

OS X :: Safari Lost Address Bar And Can't Get It Back
So I hit customize toolbar to get rid of a button on my Safari toolbar. The window didn't pop up like it was supposed to, so I tried clicking around, and clicked the address bar and it disappeared.

Now even after a restart, I can't get the customize toolbar dialog to come up, therefore I can't get my address bar back.

This is on 10.5.2 by the way.

IWeb 09 :: What Frame To Address To Open New Page
I use a drop down menu on my site [URL]. As a target for the getURL I can address _self, but that will open the new page within the frame of the menu; not very useful. Alternatively, I can target _blank, which will open the page in a new window. Given the fact that visitors of my site in average view some 12 odd pages, they will end up with twelve windows; not very useful either. What frame do I need to address in order to have the menu button open the targeted page in the same window?

This just started about an hour ago. Every time I press the "B" button while my browser is open, the bookmarks tab opens. How do I stop this? it's very frustrating.

- Already Tried Re-booting
- Looked through "system Preferences/Keyboard and Mouse" and found no shortcuts there that look like they might help.
- Haven't found anything in the "Help" menu that might relate.

Software :: Safari Tabs/ Moving Tabs Back Below The Address Bar?
I have really tried to like the new Safari, but I can't seem to generate 'affection' for the tabs. One thing especially is irritating to me. Being over the address bar is bad enough, but when there's a bunch of tabs, finding a spot to 'grab' the window to move it is difficult.

Is there a way to move the tabs back below the address window like the older Safari? I hope this hasn't been asked and answered before. I didn't see it.

MacBook Pro :: Internet Back Open And Then Skype Had A Problem That It Wouldn't Open?
I was on the Internet when something appeared to restart my computer. It started back up with my Internet back open and then my Skype had a problem that it wouldn't open. I updated software, restarted it, tried the hard drive test and I still can't get my Applications to open. I even deleted my Skype application (as it was downloaded as a device anyways which was weird - and still does that). At this time, the Finder, Applications page, System Preferences, Mail and Safari work - but that's it!!!! I cannot figure it out at all!! I've put the error message below that I receive when trying to open Skype, iTunes, iPages, etc....Please help - I don't want to have to take my laptop in to Apple!

MacBook Pro :: Go Back One Page Using The Trackpad?
I've searched for a way to use the trackpad to go back one page instead of moving the cursor up to the back arrow in the top left hand corner. I am currently using Firefox. I am unable to figure this out. The 3 finger swipe doesn't work and it's frustrating to have to go back up to the top corner constantly.

Mac Pro :: Wireless Connection Is Very Slow , Every Web Page Open It Take Minutes To Open?
i've just bought my new mac pro, i'm very happy with it's performance, but there is 1 small little tiny problem, i've ordered my mac pro with wireless card, but my wireless connection is very slow , every web page i open it take minutes to open, before i had an imac, the wireless connenction was super fast, then i've sold it to my dad , but my new mac pro is very slow, mention that it's in the same room and in the same place my imac was.

i've check my bluetooth, i've send and receive some files with my bluetooth to my moblie, it was great, but when i copy files from my brothers computer it was slow and then it stucks , with my imac this never happens.i opened my mac pro to check the wireless card and i found this:-
antenna 1 was in the bluetooth card.
antenna 2 was in the upper wireless card.
antenna 3 was in the lower wireless card.

the weird thing i've found is that my speed connection it goes fast and then is goes slow then fast then slow, it's not stable, another weird thing is that my wireless speed is slow then when i press the wireless bars it goes fast then it returns slow again.this is a really lousy service from apple to make the wireless card as optional , it's really unfair i mean it is the most powerfull mac ever and wireless is not included one more question, is there a difference between the wireless card in the imac and in the mac pro?

MacBook :: Removing Keys From New (space Bar - Arrow - Shift Button And 2 Others)?
Last night a friend of mine spilt a very small amount of soda onto my macbook. I immediately wiped it off and powered down the computer. Today, when I turned the computer back on, everything works fine, however, a few of the keys are sticky (the space bar, arrow keys, shift button, and 2 others). Is there anyway to remove these keys to try to clean them? This is the current generation Macbook.

Mac Safari :: Can Force A New Tab By Pressing The Cmd Button - Cannot See Appropriate Option?
The behaviour of my Safari installation (5.02) seems to have changed in the last few days. When clicking on a link from within a web page it opens a new window instead of a new tab in the existing window. I can force a new tab by pressing the cmd button but I would like this to be the default. I have looked in Safari preferences but I can't see an appropriate option.
