Safari :: My HTML Page Doesn't Work On Safari

I'm trying to make an extremely simple HTML page using TextEdit (saving it as an .html file) and none of my code seems to be working. It simply displays the code i typed in without having any effect.

Info:Mac OS X (10.7.3)

Mac Safari :: HTML 5 Geolocation Doesn't Work
I have installed Safari Version 5.0 (6533.16) and the HTML 5 geolocation doesn't work. I have re-installed Safari, used the Guest Account but none of the HTML 5 demos are able to detect my location. My MacBook (same network) has the same issues. What other things can interfere with this function? All of those demos work fine on Firefox (same machine)

Mac Safari :: Safari Doesn't Work On Some Sites
Ok this is a weird problem (I think it is anyway) - I have noticed that on some websites that pressing a button that should start another action or load a page does nothing. The same page on my laptop resultsin the action. Give you an idea - I was trying to download the latest version of Toast from the ROxio site - it asked me to log in and I entered all my details but it would not operate the login button, I have reset safari and deleted it and reloaded it (twice) but still nothing. I am running the latest Safari under Snow Leopard on a 24" IMac - 2.16 GHz Core Duo

Applications :: Safari Doesn't Load All Images On A Page?
I've had problems for a while with Safari sporadically not loading images on some web pages. The problem was so irritating that I ditched it in favour of Camino.

Now Safari 4 is out, I'm trying to move back, but the problem is still there.

It typically happens when viewing a page containing lots of images. Here are two I have recurring problems with:



A bit of Googling shows I'm not alone, but there doesn't seem to be any proper explanation of the problem or a solution out there. Clearing the cache solves the problem temporarily, but it quickly returns and there's no rhyme or reason to what will or won't load. I've also tried resetting Safari and deleting the prefs file (which I guess do the same thing).

Mac Safari :: FTP Link In HTML Page Not Working In 4.0.5
One of my colleagues/clients has recently set up an ftp server so that customers can upload their files for printing using a username & password. I was asked to update the website I designed for them, by adding a small link at the bottom of the index page titled 'customer login', that directs customers to the server. Having done this I then found that the link doesn't work in Safari? It's fine in Firefox & IE.

If however you hover over the link & right click with your mouse to select 'Open Link In A new Window' it works as it should. I've tried making the link load in a new window & as a pop up window using javascript, but neither works. I searched these discussions & found a similar post to this question from 2008, in which the response was 'Safari does not currently support links to ftp in this way'. Surely this issue has been resolved?

Safari :: 'Configure' Page Doesn't Load
When I go through the Apple Store ordering process, the body of the 'configure' page won't load. I get the header and footer, but no actual way to add more ram, bigger HD, applecare, etc, and proceed to place an order. Just a big empty space. 

This is only happening on my Mac Pro in safari. It works fine on firefox, and on safari in my MBP. I've tried the usual basics, restart, repair permissions, reset safari, download and reinstall.... but I still can't get the page to show properly.

OS X :: Shortcut In Safari Doesn't Work?
I recently got a MacBook Pro 2Ghz and therefore would like to try Safari out. I used Firefox on Windows and I loved the shortcut to the Google Search (CMD+K).

But it isn't there in Safari. So I googled it and found out I can make my own shortcut for it. This is what people have said I should do:


1. Open System Preferences.
2. Click on Keyboard & Mouse.
3. Click on Keyboard Shortcuts.
4. Click the �+� to add a new shortcut.
5. Choose �Safari� from the Application menu.
6. Type �Google Search�... (without the quotes) into the Menu Title field. Those three dots are an ellipses, formed by typing Option-semicolon (not three periods).
7. Press Command-K in the Keyboard Shortcut field.
8. Click �Add�.
9. Close and reopen Safari.

I couldn't make the ellipses through Option-semicolon, but alt-X. I think it's because it's a Danish keyboard, but I don't know.

But here's the problem: It doesn't work.

I've done it step by step and I've tried to restard the computer and done it again, it just doesn't work.

OS X :: Safari Pop-up Blocker Doesn't Work?
I often find a random safari window showing some advert or something and have worked out that it's - go there and browse and it craftily opens a window behind the active one.

Does that mean my pop-up blocker doesn't work?

Mac :: Safari Reset Doesn't Work / Resolve This?
Seem to have has this problem on and off on both my Macs but never followed it up.
I've never been bothered with partitioning my Macs and as a result I simply reset Safari after my wife has used it (so I log out of her eBay and Yahoo! accounts) - Anyway, sometimes, after doing a reset, I go on eBay and there is her account. I look in the cookie list and none have been deleted

Mac Safari :: Reader Feature Doesn't Work
The much-touted "Reader" function is apparently broken in my Safari 5. I've visited dozens of websites and have yet to see a "Reader" icon appear in the address bar. Also, trying to invoke Reader manually (Command-Shift-R or choosing View->Enter Reader) does nothing; the menu item is always greyed out.

Applications :: Safari 5 - Auto Fill URL Doesn't Work Any More
I just noticed that when I start to type a URL in the URL field in Safari 5, it behaves differently than before. For example, before, if I typed "app" in the URL field and hit enter, it would automatically fill in "[URL:..] and load the site. That's because Apple's site was the only site in my bookmark list that started with "app". Now when I type "app", it fills in [URL:..] instead, because that site's DESCRIPTIVE TEXT begins "Apple, Macintosh...". So now, it assumes the letters I type in the URL bar are to help me find a site based on the "descriptive" text, instead of the actual URL text. I really hate this new behavior. I looked for an option or preference to change, but found nothing. Any of you know how to revert this behavior, or if it is even possible to do so?

I have had one problem ever since I downloaded Safari 5. Sometimes when attempting to load pages, it just doesn't work. It's like that my internet gets turned off when I am trying to load a page. Any one know if this is a known problem, or if it is just a coincidence that my internet became "glitchy" when I downloaded Safari 5?

OS X Tiger :: Safari Won't Work And Software Update Doesn't Recognize Internet Connection
I'm using Safari Version 4.0.3 (4531.9) and it won't browse to any website. I initially thought it was a problem with Airport so I unplugged and restarted my Airport device but Safari still wouldn't work. Then I noticed that I was still getting email and when I tried Firefox it worked fine. So I thought perhaps I needed a software update for Safari but when I tried to run Software Update it said it couldn't connect to the server and to check my internet connection. I clicked on the Network Diagnostics link which came back saying that my internet connection was fine. I then Googled a bit using Firefox and saw some posts which suggested move the .plist files out of the Library/Preferences folder. I've moved the and for all users.

Applications :: Safari 5 Control-click Doesn't Work In Content Area?
Control-click has stopped working for me in Safari 5's content area.

It works fine when clicking on Safari's toolbars and it also works fine in every other app including Finder.

A complete reinstall of Safari 5 didn't solve the problem.

I tried deleting every preference file and cache file I could find but that didn't help. And fixing various permissions and other things in Onyx had no effect.

2011 Macbook Pro Connects To Internet But Safari Doesn't Work
I am haveing and issue conencting. The probelm is when an ethernet connection is working Wifi is not, when Wifi is working ethernet is not. The issue is the netowrk control panel says Im always connected through wifi and ethernet 100% of the time but Safari or Firefox will not load a web page. It is strange because in Terminal I can ping any website. I'v restarted the router, the computer, I have even reloaded the OSX Lion. I have al the most up to date definitions. From a little bit of reasearch I see this is a ongoing issue and it is very frustrating. It is not a netowrk issue all my other devices work perfect when connected to wifi. 3 windows machines ipad iphone etc. Is the network card bad on the late 2011 macbooks?

I want to try out the new Safari. So I went to and downloaded the package, ran installation and then rebooted the Mac. As before, when I tried to check out Safari 4, Safari again doesn't show after installation. As it's just the same specifics can be re-read in the thread 'Safari doesn't show after installation' somewhen older. But if someone can help I happily share details again. Only contents on the Mac named 'safari' is the .dmg I used, some metadata and Microsoft Office stuff. And I tried to install more than once.
