Safari :: Show Icons Instead Of Names In Bookmark Bar?

Apr 9, 2012

Safari shows websites' names in the bookmark bar (instead of icons). They are all grey against a grey background, which is really uninspiring.

On PC it is possible to display websites icons (in their original colour). In fact the default mode is icon. Anyway to to do that on Safari / Mac?

Applications :: Can Safari Be Configured To Display Bookmark Icons In The Bookmark Bar

Aug 15, 2005

Can Safari be configured to display bookmark icons in the bookmark bar? I love having that feature in Firefox. I like having just the icon in my bookmark bar; that way, I can fit in more bookmarks and it's less cluttered.Does anyone know how to display bookmark icons in the bookmark bar in Safari? Can you get different skins for Safari so that I could get that feature?

Safari :: Alternative Way Of Editing Bookmark Instead Of 'show All Bookmarks'?

May 7, 2012

Other than going into 'show all Bookmarks' is there any alternative way of editing my bookmarks?  I've collected hundreds and dragging them around one by one is going to be pretty time consuming. I used to have a third-party app called 'Bookmark Farm' which gave me a way of visually categorizing in a graphic layout.  Now, when I want to Bookmark, got to scroll through folders and subfolders. Must be an easier way!

MacBook Air :: How To Remove Bookmark In Safari And Start Fresh Bookmark

Jun 22, 2014

I have a bookmarked a reputable company for easy access.Log-in icon, easy and secure, no problems.Weeks ago, I entered a wrong password, and a page stating "error" appeared. log-in was successful when reset and again, secure, and safe.

Now this page is still appearing any time I press the log-in button to access the secure logging in page, when I go to bookmark. OK, I removed the whole bookmark from safari, accessed the general web site of the company, and whenever I try to access the log-in page, (not even bookmarked!) I immediately get the same error page!, again and again, without even entering any data or user name or attempted password. This "error" page must have been stored somewhere on my MBA.How can I remove this and start a fresh bookmark?

Sep 29, 2008

i am a tad stumped by this issue i'm having right now with my new imac. i noticed one day that none of my desktop aliases show any longer. in fact if i go to the desktop folder through finder my files and such show in there however none of my aliases nor those files show on the actual desktop. another thing i've noticed is that whenever i now try to drag and drop anything to the desktop whether it be a URL from safari or an alias i made in finder the dragged item simply just drags itself back to where i pulled it from.

OS X Mavericks :: Messages App Keeps Switching From Show Pictures And Names To Just Show Pictures

Jun 22, 2014

Messages keeps switching the conversation view from "Show Names and Pictures" to just "Show Pictures". This is in the menu under: View > Messages > Show Names and Pictures. I have to change it multiple times a day, including every time I open the app from a closed state.

This is very confusing in group iMessage conversations where all the iMessages are coming from the same grey silhouette icon. The issue is only happening on my Mac mini. It's not happening on my MacBook Air. Both are running Mavericks 10.9.3...So I keep changing the setting here, but it somehow just switches back to Show Pictures only:

OS X Mavericks :: Show Nicknames Instead Of Full Names In Apps

Sep 2, 2014

Messages and FaceTime in OS X show full names of your contacts. I cannot find a setting to show nicknames instead. I know editing the contacts would do the job. But it would be very dodgy as nobody's first or last name is 'Mum', 'Uncle Bob' or 'Shaggy'. Is there a way to show nicknames instead of full names in Messages and FaceTime?

OS X :: Reordering Bookmark Folders In Safari?

Dec 23, 2008

I'm switching from Windows to Mac (I think). One frustration is that I imported my bookmarks from Internet Explorer into Safari. No problem there. But they are arranged alphabetically, which is of no use to me. I want to organize them with the ones I use most at the top, etc.

So I go to the place where you organize bookmarks and I can drag and drop bookmarks to any position on the list. But when I drag a folder of bookmarks I can't drop it between two other folders (so that it show up between the two). Instead, I can only put the folder inside one of the other folders.

So I've been searching the net and the solution people seem to offer is "drag the folder to the top of the list...". This is ridiculous. This would mean that I would have to plan strategically and first put the folder I want to be at the bottom, at the top, and proceed until lastly I place the one I want at the top. Of course if anywhere along the line I screw up, then I guess you start over again?

Applications :: Using Safari - Getting Missing Bookmark Bar?

Mar 21, 2004

Then I minimised the Safari window, and when I returned, the bookmark bar has gone. Preferences says that it's still on 'show bookmark bar' is ticked. I've tried quitting safari, I've rebuilt permissions. The bookmarks are still there - I can 'show all bookmarks' from the bookmark menu - just the bar has gone

Any ideas where it might have gone to and how I can get it back - hadn't realised how much I depended on it for casual browsing unti it wasn't there.

Safari :: Naming Bookmark Folders In It?

Apr 23, 2012

When I create a new folder in bookmarks, the name reverts back to "untitled folder". It first started happening when I'd name sub-folders.  I'd keep renaming them, and finally they'd stick. Now I've got a main bookmark folder that I've renamed over and over and over and over .... it just won't stick.  So I downloaded Safari again, thought that might fix it, but no.
