Safari :: Close Multiple Tabs At The Same Time?

How do you close multiple tabs at the same time? Is there a "close all other tabs" command?

Applications :: Tabs On Safari - Working With Multiple Tabs?
my safari upon opening shows a tab for the current window. i thought tabs only appeared when you have 2 or more concurrent windows open at the same time.

is there a way to hide the tab when you only have 1 window open?

for example: [URL]

Mac Safari :: Reopen Tabs After Close Browser?
Is there an option (or extension) to allow me to reopen tabs in safari after I close the browser?

e.g. I would like to save my browsing session somehow and reopen it next time I open Safari.

I know I can save the tabs as bookmarks but this is a real pain.

Software :: Safari Extensions - Close All Inactive Tabs
I've created an extension for Safari which does exactly what you want. It closes all the tabs except for the tab that is currently active. As a side effect you can also change a setting which when enabled will on pressing the button ask you if you really want that (to prevent accidental button presses). You can find the extension on the extensions page of Safari.

I will be adding functionality soon: Context menu options will be added so that you can create a white list of websites that you don't want to have closed upon clicking the Close All Tabs button. This can be convenient if you, just like me, have a number of tabs open with websites you never close. For example, I always have my GMail open and another page I am working on. All the other tabs can in most cases be closed all at once at some point, however I don't want it to close my GMail and currently active tab.

Mac Safari :: Tabs Sometimes Won't Close Except Via Shortcut?
I occasionally find myself clicking away like crazy on my Macbook Pro's trackpad, unable to close a tab in Safari. Other open tabs will close. There's no indication that the trackpad is the problem, or that content loaded into the troublemaking tab is, either.

If I use the keyboard shortcut for closing the tab, it closes immediately, just as it should.

I'm not sure if this has happened only since the last update of Safari. I've had this computer since June however and I don't remember this happening at all during the first months of ownership.

Applications :: Multiple Tabs And Certain Pages Take Time To Load
I've been using Safari 4 for a while now and I am starting to notice that with multiple tabs and sometimes when I go to certain pages it tends to take a while to load - which is really annoying. I tried Google Chrome but it doesn't have a bookmarks manager which is just stupid. I hear that Firefox takes a while to start up.

Safari :: Remove Arrows Appearing Above Multiple Tabs?
A few weeks ago arrows started to appear above my tabs.  The arrow corresponds to where my cursor is on the page and as I move my cursor, the arrow moves to the next tab and shifts my page view from one tab to the other.  It's a quick way to navigate but I have no idea what activates it or how to turn it off.  It's driving me away from Safar.

Mac Safari :: Opening Multiple Tabs Hangs Internet?
I know there's been a lot of people already having problems with safari 5 and dns servers, but I really don't understand why it's only safari that it's happening in and not firefox too. Safari seems fine for me unless I try and open multiple tabs at the same time, and this seems to crash my modem and then the internet hangs. But I can open the same amount of tabs in firefox (and safari 4) no problem.

Mac Safari :: Opening Multiple Homepage Tabs On Startup?
I am running Mac OSX 10.6.5 on a MacBook Pro.i am trying to figure out how to get Safari (Version 5.0.2 (6533.18.5)) to open up multiple homepages in different tabs on startup of the program. (e.g. one tab with GMail, one with Macrumors, etc.).
Is this something that Safari supports?

Mac Safari :: Tabs Failing To Close When Click The 'x'?
Anyone else have the frustratingly annoying problem of tabs failing to close when you click the 'x'? cmd-w works every time- no problem, but when I try clicking the 'x' on the tab, it almost always fails to close with the first click. I can sometimes click it 50 times and it won't close until I cycle between the next tab, and the tab I'm trying to close. This problem has been persistent through my G3 iBook, G4 power book, Core2Duo MBP, every generation flat-screen iMac (have a current version now), my macbook air AND a macpro I use on a regular basis.

Trackpad, mighty mouse (both generations), wired apple mice, several logitech mice (wired and wireless), etc.- doesn't matter. Only Safari has this very annoying problem. I'd use Firefox, but I prefer Safari. I've tried re-installing safari, emptying cache, reset safari, I've run multiple disk utilities with no change, reinstalled the OS, etc. All SW is current. Is it me, or is this just how it is?

Safari :: 5.1.7 - Restore Warning Before Closing Window With Multiple Open Tabs?
Since downloading version 5.1.7, when I click on the red button to close a window, it closes instantly -- even when the window contains numerous open tabs. The prior version always gave me a "Do you really want to close this window? You have X open tabs." message, which I'd like to restore. I looked in Preferences to no avail.

Mac Safari :: Dragging Tabs Takes Much Time
Safari has been very slow lately and the thing ive noticed most often is when I have multiple tabs open and I want to drag one into its own window it takes around 10 seconds for the tab to turn in to a new window. It is extremely delayed and it never used to be and several other peoples macs seem to be fine when doing this function.

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.

OS X Tiger :: Commanding Firefox To Close Tabs By AppleScript?
Just wondering if it's possible at all: I'd like to write an AppleScript that would let me close all tabs except my homepage in Firefox when I quit the application.

I'm not sure about the syntax or the commands I can invoke in AppleScript, because I know Firefox's AppleScripting abilities are quite poor.

Do you think it's possible at all? Feel free to ask for more information if that I provide is not sufficient...

MacBook Air :: Tabs On Browser Taking Long To Close
I have a Macbook Air and I am used to living in Korea where the internet speed is quite high. I also found that closing the browser tabs to be fast. I use the shortcut "Option-w" to close the tab and I also just right-click the tab and close it that way. I have moved to Germany a week ago and am using the hotel's free internet in my hotel room and using my MBA. The problem is that the connection is so slow. It takes forever to opening a webpage.

I want to close tabs and I find that that takes a long time too. I can accept that the internet connection is slow but I didn't think that would affect the speed at which I closed the tabs on the browser ... I thought that was an operation of my computer. I don't have many programs going on, but closing the tabs is very slow. Is that because of the internet speed?

Generally I've noticed my computer overall is slow to operate. Is that because of the slow internet speed or something like that? The internet is taking up a lot of the power/memory or something and slowing down the operation of the computer? I use Opera and Firefox as my browsers and both are slow to close tabs etc.

OS X :: Hover Mouse Over Links - Multiple Tabs Opened
If I hover my mouse over a link in Safari, it will start opening multiple tabs of that link without me clicking it until I hover off it. It also opens programs if I hover over it for about a second. This started happening this morning. It was fine last night. I didn't download any updates in that time, and didn't change any system preferences. I tried restarting my system. This happens with both my wireless mouse and the trackpad, so I figured it's a software issue. Could it be a virus? What Mac program checks for/ gets rid of viruses?

Mac Safari :: Slow Opening Of Safari Tabs Despite High Speed Broadband?
Opening of tabs is very slow despite high speed broadband (actual downloading speed >50 Mbit/s). First page opens relatively quick but the other ones take minutes. It even happens that they don't open at all with the message "can't find the page". If I try to open such a page directly it opens at once (no problem). I have the same problem with Firefox. I have tryed the following:

reset Safari
reinstall Safari
reinstall Snow Leopard

I have an iMac 2,66 Ghz intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB internal memory, Safari 4.0.4 and Snow Leopard 10.6.2.

Any suggestions?

Mac Safari :: Saved Tabs Menu Bookmark Brings Safari Window To Unusable State?
Saved tabs menu bookmark does not ask for user confirmation when navigating away from many tabs, and when the user returns to the previous set of tabs (note that this possibility isn't clear to the user), the entire Safari window reaches an unusable state.

I have a saved tabs folder as a bookmark item that is also present on the bookmarks menu bar. That means if I accidentally click on the saved tabs link instead of the address bar then my Safari session with all of the current active tabs disappears! I'd like to suggest that Safari presents a confirmation page when the user is about to change the state of more than one tab, just like it would ask for confirmation if the user were to exit Safari or close a window with many open tabs. By clicking on that single button nearby to the address bar, the entire window state is altered, not just the current tab. That's not my initial expected behaviour. On the other hand, it was also not clear to me initially that I could navigate back to the previous set of tabs when that state is comprehensively changed. So maybe the user can be informed about the ability to undo that action. For now, I will certainly be moving that set of tabs away from the menu bar, tucked further within the Bookmarks menu. But the problem that I have now is more than just a temporary unavailability of the old state.

When I accidentally navigated forward to that set of tabs, and subsequently quickly hit the back arrow button to revert to the previous state, Safari itself reached a point where the content of all tabs became unavailable. This sounds like it could be a kind of race condition where Safari needs to throw away cached information for the old set of tabs before it builds new cached information upon loading all new tabs. By aborting the process of loading those new tabs, maybe Safari assumes that the set of tabs is up to date, but the transition back to the old set of tabs doesn't appropriately trigger a reload and revert of the state. In any case the symptom is clear. When I switch between tabs in the problematic window, I continue to get completely blank screens even though I had many distinct tabs open in that window initially. It seems that to reproduce this problem what needs to be done is to have this set of saved tabs in a bookmark that is stored just below the address bar, and then to quickly navigate backward to return to the previous state. The more tabs in the current and stored session, the more this process may bog down Safari and expose this type of race condition. I also believe I may have also double or triple clicked that saved tabs button, which may invalidate the original set of tabs since the state for several sets of tabs might not be stored transparently by default. In any case I would like to recommend that Safari warn the user when this step takes place. The user could even be warned because they place a set of tabs bookmark below the menu bar, since they might accidentally click there. When this problem occurred, the other Safari window I had open had multiple tabs but this part of the Safari session was considered still working and the symptoms were not there. Yet the problematic window continues to experience the problem where all tabs are currently blank. I believe that I'll have to restart Safari to trigger the reloading of the pages, but I don't even know if that will be sufficient.

Mac Safari :: Links That Open New Windows In Safari Instead Of New Tabs?
Why is it that when clicking on a link in a website sometimes open a new tab in the same window (which is great) an other times it opens a completely new window (annoying)? I have already ticked the box which tells safari to open new links in tabs rather than a new window, but it continues to open new windows...although not always. Firefox seems to handle this feature a lot better.

Mac Safari :: Safari Keeps Opening All My Bookmarks In Tabs Upon Launch?
Whenever I launch Safari, it opens all my bookmarks in tabs...all 100+ it takes forever to load. How do I stop this??? I can find no settings to alter this behavior. Anyone have a script or something I can do??? I did run a script once to return Safari's tab behavior back to the original functionality after Apple modified the Tab display, but I don't know how this behavior keeps happening.

Mac Safari :: Force Safari To Open ALL Links And Everything Else In Tabs
I want to have just one Safari window open and all the links that I click on that are supposed to be in a new window open in a new tab and all the links that I click on any other program open on the same safari window but in a new tab just like in Firefox.

Can I do that? One single window for all my browser needs?

Mac Safari :: Safari Not Opening Webpages In Tabs?
so I've got Safari 4.0.4 and Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and Glims 1.0 build 23. I have set all my settings in Safari, System Preferences, Secrets, and Glims, to have Safari load new pages in tabs. HOWEVER, when I click on a link in, lets say, Mail, Tweetie, iChat, ANYTHING, it always loads a new browser window. This would be fine, but it is very cumbersome to have this many windows open, as I usually read 10 articles one after another.

The only way I can get a new tab to open is to Command+Click on a link in Safari and it will open just fine.Any clues? Do I need to completely trash Safari and all its files and re-install it? Do I need to give up Glims?Oh yeah, I also have Adblock Safari installed but it doesn't run because I haven't told Safari to run in 32-bit mode.
