OS X :: Disable Java In Safari For Specific Sites?

Mar 15, 2010

Does anyone know of a way I can disable Java on some sites in Safari, but have it enabled for the rest? I don't see an option natively, but maybe there is a plugin or a plist that can be edited?

The reason is my university uses Blackboard / Vista and every time I log in it asks me if I want to allow it to run. I refuse to do so, and it doesn't have an option to never allow it to run for this site.

Please don't bother posting if you do not know the difference between Java and JavaScript.

Running the latest version of Safari on OS 10.6.2

OS X :: Any Way To Disable Safari Top Sites Feature

Nov 15, 2009

I love safari. Its fast, looks great, and does everything I want it to. Outside of poor flash support (I hear macs in general are just bad for flash) everything works. What I don't like in safari is the top sites feature. I don't mind that it keeps track of which websites i visit most often, but I hate how it takes a little snapshot of every website and saves it in the website preview folder in the cache.

I didn't know you had to manually delete it and when I did it was taking up over 1.5 gb of space (/user/library/caches/com.apple.safari/website previews). I don't understand why apple couldn't have just made top sites show your most commonly visited website (like chrome or opera) and instead had to take on the website previews. Is there a way to disable top sites or at least prevent it from saving previews of websites everytime I use it?

Intel Mac :: Disable Java In Safari?

Apr 6, 2012

I have never installed Java in Lion, I just don't need it, but I noticed in Safari the tick box for 'enable Java' is still ticked, would turning this off disable prompts to install the JRE, or does it not matter? I find it odd that its listed as enabled in Safari even though Lion does not come with Java installed. Any ideas would be appreciated as reducing any attack vector is always a good move, especially at this time.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: How To Disable Java Web Plug-In In Safari

Apr 20, 2012

Why doesn't Apple discuss what it is going to do with 10.5 (Leopard) other than to say "disable Java?" Why doesnt Apple support its product, i.e., computers running 10.5 still COVERED UNDER APPLE CARE? Why must we disable Java and wait (and pay) for a Leoparad to Snow Leopard upgrade disk to arrive by SnailMail Apple support your products especially when we own over $15,000 of your products. I used to be your biggest fan, suggesting to everyone who would listen that they should "switch over.Why are you ignoring us, still covered

OS X Mountain Lion :: (10.8.5) How To Downgrade To Specific Update Of Java Version 6

Sep 8, 2014

I am used MBA Mountain Lion OSX. 

I am trying to use Business Objects through the web and unfortunately Java 7 is not compatible. I was able to downgrade to Java 6u65 (Java 1.6.0_65)  but I really need update 45 to get Business Objects to work. Terminal code and/or a download that will allow me to pull out Java version 6u45? (Java 1.6.0_45)? 

I've been on here trying several other's codes and it says permission denied or "unable to find any JVM versions matching 1.6.0_45" 

Could that mean I don't have version 6u45 available to me period?

OS X :: Disable Automount For Specific External Drive

Feb 21, 2010

I have an external drive that is permanently hooked-up to my iMac via Firewire. I use this drive only to perform a bootable disk image of my hard drive at regular intervals using the CCC scheduler. The backups are performed only once a week. I would like that this backup drive not be mounted when I or anyone else logs in to the computer. It annoys me to hear the drive turning and vibrating until it spins down and seeing it's icon on the desktop. Is there any way to prevent automount of this particular drive? I know I can dismount it manually using Diskutil, but I want everything to be automated. Any clue as to whether CCC will mount it when needed if it is unmounted?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Force-disable Ability For Keychain To Store Specific Passwords?

Apr 5, 2012

Does anyone know of a way to force-disable the ability for Keychain to save/store the passwords for specific services? For example, when a user launches a FileMaker database, they're propted (via a Finder-style popup window) to enter their username/password for that database. And there's the checkbox option to "Remember this password in my keychain". The same thing happens when mounting Share Points via AFP on one of my Xserves — the user is prompted for their login credentials and given the option to remember the login info in their keychain. 

It's our company's policy that users DO NOT use keychain to store passwords for these to services, but thus far, aside from physically checking the individual user accounts on the various machines (which is pretty much impossible), there's no way to enforce this policy. So, I'm hoping to find a way to disable the ability for passwords for these services to be stored in the user's keychain.

Safari :: Cannot Add URL To Top Sites

Apr 9, 2012

I have tried everything that I have read on how to add a site to Top Sites.With two windows open, I try to drag and drop a URL, and the "plus" sign disappears and the URL does not get added to Top Sites.I have tried the top of the page, the sides, the bottom, and the middle where the previews are. It just won't drop. Yes, I've clicked Edit. I've even tried holding the Control, Option, or Command key while dropping.

I have tried adding a site using the Bookmarks, Add Bookmark and choosing Top Sites.When I do this, it does get added to the Top Sites, but when I close and reopen Safari, it is gone - not in Top Sites anymore.I have tried totally re-setting Safari. It does not make any difference. I've tried it on my Mac mini and my MacBook. I can't get it to work with either one.Is there some trick I am missing?

It seems that regardless of how I save them, my Top Sites keep changing. What's the magic trick?

Safari :: It Just Won't Save My Top Sites

Jul 6, 2012

I just reinstalled Lion on my MacBook Pro and everything is great except for one small problem that I can't seem to solve. I'm using Safari 5.1.7 and it just won't save my Top Sites. I deleted the TopSites.plist, rearraganged and repinned the Top Sites as was instructed here and here. The Top Sites do stick for a while but then they change again. I repeated this process several times and they still keep changing.

OS X :: Safari Won't Suggest Bookmarked Sites In The Url Bar?

Aug 28, 2010

On my other mac, when I start typing in safari's url bar, it will auto-suggest pages based on the title name of my bookmarked sites (rather than just on the [URL] address url). I just got a brand new MBP and when I start typing in letters into safari's url field, it won't auto-suggest any of the names of the bookmarked pages, it only suggests based on the actual www address. How do I get it to suggest the bookmark's names?

EDIT: On my other machine I have GLIMS installed. Is this a GLIMS' feature? I was under the impression that safari did this itself.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Top Sites Looks Scrambled

Dec 4, 2010

I just got the new 15" mbp and noticed that safari top sites would scramble itself at times. I've looked around the net and seems like a normal occurrence for people with the new MBP's. My question is, what is causing it? And how do you get rid of it? Is it just a matter of turning off "automatic graphic switching" so it's running on the discrete nvidia card? Is it a software issue with flash or safari?
