Safari :: It Launches But Won't Open A Window

Apr 29, 2012

I'd set up Safari for my son under his own profile and it was working great with Parental Controls. When I went in one day to update his allowed sites, Safari launched but wouldn't open a window.  I could access preferences, reset, etc., but it wouldn't open a new window and when I tried to open a tab, it loaded at the bottom of the screen for a split second and then crashed.  I've deleted all the safari files, re-installed, downgraded - the downgrade worked but the Parental Controls didnt work.  Now what?  None of the other Parental Control apps I've tried work as well as Safari's.   Date/Time:  2012-04-29 13:32:29.593 -0700OS Version: 10.4.11 (Build 8S165)

ITunes :: Launches Each Time Open Safari?

Jun 7, 2012

Each time I launch Safari, iTunes launches. A clue: iTunes immediately goes to the store and brings up an app called SendStuffNow. This is a real pain. At one point I had downloaded the (free) app, but decided I didn't want it and deleted it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: It No Longer Launches A New Window When Click The Finder Icon?

May 30, 2012

Just recently Finder has stopped behaving as it normally would. Clicking the icon doesn't seem to launch the finder window. I have to right click the finder icon and then click New Finder Window. Sometimes there is no response for sometime and then finally it does open a window. If I click finder when a window is open it does not shift focus to finder anymore.

Applications :: Unable To Open Safari Window / Safari Not Working Fine

Jul 2, 2010

I put off doing the software update on Safari... I just HAD a feeling something would go wrong and I didn't have time to mess with it if it did.

So today I ran and update. And it messed up.

Now Safari will "open"... it looks like it is open and I have access to all the menus. But a Safari window will not open.

I am surprised that I haven't seen others with this problem. I have tried deleting the cache and deleting the preferences file. Neither seem to have made ANY difference.

I'm at a loss as to what to do. And I am feeling like I'm missing a body part. I need my Safari back!

Safari :: Open Tab Not Window From Mail Client?

Mar 19, 2012

Until recently, whenever I clicked a URL in a mail message (inside Thunderbird), the URL would open in a new Safari tab. Now it opens in a new Safari window. 

I presume it's Safari that's controlling this. What preferences setting? Platform: Safari 5.1.4 under OS X 10.7.3

Safari :: How To Open Links In Same Window, Another Tab (by Default)

Apr 7, 2012

I think the users have been asking this question for more than two years. Is there a way to open links in the same tab automatically? Its annoying when I am using apple products and have to click three times for a task that is easily made with a single click in other products (chrome, firefox....).

Safari :: Single Window Doesn't Open In Tab

May 16, 2012

I just reformatted my system and installed all software again. My config is: Lion 10.7.3, Safari 5.1.5.

In the past, when I opened Safari, even a single window opened in a Tab, now when I open just one window (i.e. only one Tab), it doesnt open in a Tab, , only when I do a Command + T to add another Tab, does the first window convert into a Tab. The resulting problem is that if I want to drag one window to another (where the first one has only one Tab), I cant do that, since it doesnt appear as a Tab, which means there is nothing to select and drag to another window.

Applications :: Safari Won't Open Window On Computer Start Up?

Nov 10, 2010

I have safari set to open up when I boot up my computer using the login items for my user account.

But when I start up my computer, instead of opening up a window, it starts up safari in the dock, but never actually opens a window. When I click on the icon in the dock the page will open up. Its acting as if I hid(CMD+H) the page. I know safari is open and it loaded the homepage, but the window wont actually open.

I've tried it on two different computers, Macbook pro, mac pro with same issue on both.

Applications :: Safari 5 Not Working At All - No Browser Window Open

Jun 9, 2010

I'm on OS 10.5.8. I just updated safari and java. Now when I open safari, I cannot get a browser window to even open. Not by trying to open a new window or going into my history and opening the Apple page. This is really frustrating since I hate Firefox (Way slower than safari has ever been for me) and now I can't even use Safari.

Safari :: Lion And LogMeIn - Open New Window As Tab Set But Not Working

Safari :: Make New Window Inactive/open In Background In 5.1.7

Jun 14, 2012

I have an MBA 2011 with 10.7.4 and Safari 5.1.7. I am very shortsighted and have struggled with the poor contrast levels between tabs and the rest of the Safari UI. My solution has been to switch off tabs, use windows instead. and configure my right option key as an App Expose shortcut. This works very nicely, but the only fly in the ointment is that when I click on a link I wish to open in a new window, it defaults to always opening in a new ACTIVE window, when I'd usually prefer it to open in the background as per tabs. 

I have checked and unchecked the option in the 'tabs' preference pane with no luck- do I need to re login to make this stick? CMD-Click works to a point, but it's not reliable, and I find it finicky, even though I've routed it to a touchpad gesture through BetterTouchTool. Is there any other way to force safari to open new windows in the background - perhaps by adding a new item to the context menu? I'd really like to resolve this as I'd love to make the switch from Chrome to Safari, especially with ML coming very soon.

Safari :: 5.1.7 - Restore Warning Before Closing Window With Multiple Open Tabs?

Jun 16, 2012

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.

Safari :: Launches With Spinning Ball And Full Fans And 100% CPU Web Processes

Feb 16, 2012

Exactly the same issue on Macbook Air and new iMac both running Safari 5.1 and Lion 10.7.3 

When I open Safari  it does not open a page, it just shows a spinning beach ball and shortly after the fans kick in and the activity monitor shows 1 webprocess at 99 - 100% or sometimes 2 web processes at 50/50% all coming from the User. When I inspect the process it says it's "Parent Process (Safari 450)" 

When I quit safari the web processes stay at 100% and will only stop when I quit them in activity monitor. I have reset Safari but no joy. Firefox etc works fine. The only update I ran was a 1Password update but they say it's not them.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Safari Always Launches Upon Login - All Settings Configured Properly

Jun 7, 2012

Each time I log into Lion, Safari launches automatically. Even stranger is the fact that if I look at my history, it always goes back to the middle of May 2012. I have deleted my history each and every time too.Until last week, it not only launched Safari automatically but took the it to a site I checked back then but do not have set as my home page nor do I have it bookmarked. Last week it stopped taking me to that site but still launches Safari but no browser window is shown.

OS X :: Safari Slows Down When "Downloads" Window Is Open?

Jul 20, 2009

Basically what the title says. I have a few tabs open in Safari and everything's working great but as soon as I start downloading a file and the downloads window opens, the whole mac slows down, animations get choppy, and bookmarks below the address bar have problem catching up with the cursor (what I mean by that is that I quickly mouse over all of them from left to right and about three seconds later they start turning dark grey like when you hover over them).

The strange part is that when I close the downloads window, everything goes back to normal.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that this is on a Leopard install that is just a few weeks old, with everything updated and repaired permissions.

OS X :: Open In New Tab Instead Of Window?

May 4, 2009

When I click a link that opened in a new window (such as a link to a new thread here I get e-mailed to me, when I open that e-mail in Gmail and click the link, it opened the thread in a new window.

Is there any way to get it to open in a tab in the same window? There was a setting for that in IE, but I can't find it on my new iMac.

By the way, it's been about 2 weeks now and I love my MAC even more!

Do you all experience this much? I'll get pop-ups that make themselves new tabs, or separate windows themselves. I have the option checked to block them in preferences. Is there any add-on you all use that may help? I know some things are going to get through no matter what. So I just thought I'd see what others experiences' were.

OS X :: Why Do Folders Open In A New Window?

Apr 7, 2010

I just made the switch from PC to MAC. So far I am doing ok with all the differences but one thing is driving me insane!

When browsing through my HD or external HD every time I click a folder it opens a new window. WHY? Is there any way to have it all use one window? I found in Finder there is an option to always open in a new window but this option is not checked.

In case it matters I am running OSX 10.6.3.

OS X :: Downloads Go To The Small Pop Up Window And Not Just Open?

Oct 14, 2010

Please go easy on me as I am new to Imac and apple systems. I have always used windows before, and when you open an attachment in windows it just opened in to a new window. Is there a way to do this on an imac, rather than have it go into the pop up downloads window, for you to then click it, for you to then delete it once you have read it. All I really want to do is look at it. It seems a very long winded way of looking at an attachment. Is there a way of changing the settings or is this just the way it goes.

OS X :: Open A New Window On Application Launch?

Nov 27, 2007

For example, (when Safari or Terminal application is already launched) pressing the dock icon or launching from quicksilver brings the window to the front (or moves to a specific space where the window is in).

Is it possible to modify this behavior to opening a new window? By clicking the dock icon (or some sequence of keyboard shortcuts) I want to open a new window of safari or terminal. Furthermore, it would be great if
this can be done to the current 'space'.

Is there a simple way of doing this?
