Safari :: How To Completely Block Facebook

Apr 20, 2012

When I surf the Internet I always have a cache cookie in Safari. I already have installed Glimmerblocker, Facebookblocker, AdBlock, Ghostery, and Facebook Disconnect plugins all with strict filters but nothing works. The option to block third-party cookies is enabled, of course. I don't see Like buttons on webpages anymore but the cookie comes again and again. How can I ban that terrible Facebook from my computer?

Applications :: Running Ad Block Plus On Firefox Completely Ineffective?

Oct 31, 2009

I just recently purchased a Macbook pro and have downloaded firefox as my web browser. I installed the add-on adblock pro, and it is without a doubt 100% ineffective; I view web pages and when I place the mouse on top of the icon it tells me it is active, however below it notifies me that it has blocked 0 out of 150 or however blockable items on the given page. I mean absolutely nothing is prevented, I found a similar add on for safari, and the same results, nothing blocked. I must be doing something completely wrong, or something so blatantly obvious, but I really am clueless.

Safari :: It Refuses To Block Cookies?

Jun 15, 2012

I have set my Safari Preferences originally to block cookies from advertisers and third parties, but it ignores that setting. Finally, I set it to block all cookies. It also ignores that setting. Is there any way to have Safari recognize it's own preference settings? By the way, I had to use Firefox to sign on here at the Apple Website today. Safari no longers seems to work with the Apple discussion site. Very odd.

Safari :: Software To Block Cookies?

Jun 24, 2012

stop selected cookies from being set in Safari? For instance, I would like to permanently block cookies from, say, Facebook and Google Analytics. I have tried clicking the radio button in Preferences>Privacy that supposedly blocks cookies from Third Parties and Advertisers, and like many other users I have found that it does nothing. I get just as many cookies from third parties and advertisers whether the button is clicked or not. As far as I can tell it’s a placebo. 

Apple’s Safari help on this issue is suspiciously carefully worded. It says that if you click the radio button, “this MIGHT HELP prevent certain advertisers from storing cookies on your computer.” What?!! What’s with the “might” and “help”? Talk about weasel words! Does it work or doesn’t it? Is it so difficult for software to recognize and delete a cookie? I find it pretty hard to believe that the problem is technical and not, um, deliberate. Apple is, after all, in the information business just like all the other major players. 

Anyway, the software that people usually recommend for zapping cookies is Safari Cookies, but that deletes them only when you quit Safari – in other words, after said cookies have reported back to their source. So what’s the point? By then they have done exactly what you are trying to stop them from doing. I want the cookies deleted when they are set – BEFORE my privacy is compromised.

Applications :: Block Websites At Certain Times (Safari)?

Sep 2, 2010

I need a plug-in/add-on/application that will block certain websites I want at certain times. For example, block Youtube and Facebook from 4-6PM. Preferably these settings would be difficult or impossible to change once in place, haha. I want to be strict and not let myself procrastinate during the upcoming school year and I think this is the only way to actually do it.

Safari :: Block Cookies Always Selected In Privacy Preference Pane

Feb 20, 2012

What's up in Safari 5.1.3 Cookies. After removing all the website data, I recently chose "Block Cookies Always" After opening "Yahoo" in Safari, I looked at the "Privacy Preference Pane" again. It now reads "Block cookies Always" and says 37 websites stored cookies or other data. I looks like the choice to block cookies has little effect on Safari.Is there any way to protect yourself from unwanted cookies? By the way, in order to sign in to the Apple discussion website, cookies must be enabled.

I have my "block pop-up windows" checked in Safari 7.0.6 and yet I am still getting a lot of unwanted pop-up ads and am getting very frustrated each time I use my computer.

Safari :: Can't Login To Facebook

May 29, 2012

In both safari and chrome when I type in my username, to login to facebook or or other sites,the browser suddenly acts as though it's been redirected and then returns me to the login page, The username box delets what I pe after about 4-5keystrokes OR it takes me to another login page and inserts the username and password, but won't do anything beyond that.  A different user account on the same computer does not have that problem with logins, and I can login no problem if I am on the computer under that other user account.

the troubleshooter on apple support says to reboot in safe mode and see if it happens, however in safe mode, I cannot connect to my wireless network and the browsers won't open.

Safari :: Facebook Won't Load?

Jun 29, 2012

I have a eGo ITB 800 Firewire drive which has been running fine with Time Machine on my Leopard OSX 10.5 IMac. I just got a new IMac running Lion OSX 10.7.3 and want to migrate my files to the new machine.  The new Lion IMac will not mount the drive. I updated the system software today, so it has the latest patches.

1. It appears under Devices in the Finder but Migration Assistant does not "see" it at all. Time Machine DOES recognize it as an Iomega HDD, though I have Time Machine turned off because I don't want to make a back up of the new machine until I transfer the files from the old one.

2. When I connect with Firewire 800, System Information will see a drive there, but it says "unknown device".

3, When I connect with USB, System Information will see the Iomega HDD there and report on it's specs.  

4.  I power cycled the drive to see if that would help and I got the warning that I should unmount drives first. 

5. In the finder, I can see  my old files on the Iomega. 

6. I can't find any information on this one the Iomega web site, and they say that no software upgrades or drivers are necessary.

All of this implies to me that the disk is ok and the connections are ok.  Does anyone know how can I get this drive mounted and working so I can transfer my files?

OS X :: Safari - Facebook Thumbnails Not Loading

Dec 15, 2010

I've been having issues with Facebook on my safari browser. The thumbnail pictures and profile picture will randomly not load. Hitting refresh may or may not fix the problem sometimes. I'm not too sure what causes this, I've done lots of searches and I haven't found anything similar to this. I'm running Safari 5.0.3 with adblocker as my only extension (I've disabled it and the problem still occurs).

just quickly to see if this is a widespread bug in Safari 3.2.1 if you click on the "Info" tab of a friend's profile or even your own and then click back on the "Wall" tab does Safari crash?

ive just sent a crash support and it would be really great if we get heaps of people sending one if its a widespread issue to squash this bug.

Applications :: Safari Keeps Logging Me Out Of Facebook - How To Fix It

Dec 22, 2008

It never did this with Netscape or Firefox, and from what I've heard, it doesn't do it with my friend, who uses Safari all the time. I have Safari set up so it automatically fills in forms AND accepts cookies from any site, and it STILL logs me out suddenly in about a minute. How can I keep myself logged in all the time, like it's SUPPOSED to?

Intel Mac :: Can't Access Facebook Through Safari?

Jun 3, 2012

I have done everything I can think of, cleared all cookies, cache and reset safari. I also tried other browsers (chrome and firefox) still no go.I get to the sign in page but then Safari (or other brousers) can't open the page.Now it says I tried to may times and have to verify who I am. Try to go to verification page and get the message "can't open page" Just in case I downloaded Sophos to check for any virus or trojan...nothing there.I can access any other web pages, just not facebook.This is driving me crazy.  I am not that computer literate to know what else to do.

Safari :: Facebook And Yahoo Won't Connect

Jun 6, 2012

I have read every single post on this problem, I have looked at keychains, plugins, extensions, you name it I ahve tried it.  Facebook hasn't worked for three weeks and now Yahoo won't work either.  I get the message that  the server has dropped the connection.  No luck.  I also can't get facebook in FireFox or Chrome, so this is a systemic problem.  I have run anti-virus, I have done everything imaginable and can't fix the problem. I can get FB, Yahoo, whatever on other computers using the same ISP, modem, and router.
