Safari :: 5.1.5 - Opening Last Page Visited When Started
When I open Safari 5.1.5 it opens the last page I was in previously, not my designated homepage, which I would prefer. I looked in Preferences to change it, but to no avail. Upgraded to Lion yesterday.

How To Prevent Safari From Opening To Previous Webpage
How do you prevent Safari from opening to the previous webpage? This gets me into trouble when I move from one wifi place (home, hospital office) to another. Can I adjust it so it just opens to the homepage the way it did before I switched to Lion OS?

IWeb 09 :: Hyperlinks Stop Working After The Link Has Been Visited?
I am having a problem with hyperlinks I have created on my website. They have the same colour in normal and visited and a different rollover colour. They work fine in iweb. however, when I publish to my domain, initially the rollover colour works but not once they have been visited. it just stays the same colour if you hover over it..the same problem occurs using both safari and firefox....

The links I am referring to are the different category names that appear at the top of the photo pages (within locations, if you click on one of the categories). However, the links in my navigation bar, which have been created in exactly the same manner, work fine every time.

Mac :: How To Stop Safari Opening On Start Up

Safari :: Stop From Opening 99 Tabs Automatically
When I first start up Safari - it automatically opens a huge number of tabs (the drop down menu on a tab right click shows an option to bookmark 99 tabs - and there are more tabs opened than I care to count). They appear to all be existing bookmarks; but could also be history.

At one point it would not let me close it at all & because it wouldn't close the OS would not allow a shutdown. So I had to do a hardware power off instead.

I played around with the setting and finnally - after severl hard reboots and a lot of try this & try that - I got it to allow itself to be closed. 

But the 99+/- auto opens continue to be a problem.  I've tried to completely clear my history, and several other property adjustments - but overall the behaviour remains very very flakely. 

I want to make it my default browser on all my Apple things (Macbook / iTouch / iPad) but the very bad behaviour keeps pushing me back to Firefox - sigh. It feels like a very bad user design that cannot be trusted. 

Are there some obvious know gotcha's with this browser? Or some standard settings that should never be touched? Or are these common bugs that just don't work right?

Mac Safari :: When Loading Webpage Suddenly Change Over To Another Irrelevant Webpage
Recently while using Safari 4, select webpages will load almost completely and then suddenly change over to another, irrelevant webpage that is blank. Most of these unwanted page changes start with [URL] I upgraded to Safari 5 and the problem persists. I also bought "Clean My Mac" thinking this could be a bug and that did not resolve the problem. I am beside myself as to what else to do.

Change Visited Link Color In Safari 5.1.3
Visited link colors in Safari, most notably visited Google links when I return to the search page, don't change colors as they used to do. Actually, I think it's been that way for a long time (years) now but I am just now coming back around to being interested in why and if there is a way to get back to the days where new links were BLUE and visited links were GREEN (or whatever color you wanted).Is this still possible with the new Safari and if so, how do you go about setting this visted link color preference?

Mac Safari :: Searching For Visited Web Page
I am trying to find a webpage I visited a couple of days ago. I have erased my history so I can't pull it up that way anymore. Is there another way of finding it on my computer. Does the computer store it anywhere else on the computer? I could do I search again on the web but it would take to long plus there are certain criteria I am missing to find it again.

Mac Safari :: V5 - Dreaded Hang Up And Visited Link Disease
I have contracted the dreaded Safari 5 Hang and Visited Link Disease, so I've switched my default browser. Is there a link where I should submit a trouble ticket to apple? If not, how will I know when to return my loyalty to Safari? I've done all the usual fixes: reset Safari, reset permissions, cache deletion, but any hacks beyond that smell like PC, and will not reach the Mac masses (reverting to v.4, dns mods).

Mac Safari :: Doesn't Remember Visited Links On Google
I don't know what has changed in the last to days, but I just noticed that Google doesn't remember the search results I click. The links become purple if I open them in a new tab, but as soon as I search for the same word, all the results appear again as unvisited.

I've tested on Firefox and no problem at all. It's not something that has been like that before, I'm 100% sure but have no idea how to fix it. I've tried resetting Safari, deleting cache, cookies... but nothing works.

Software :: Safari Not Change Visited Links Colors On Google Search Pages
Something I've done in the past few days has caused Safari to not change color for visited links "only" on Google search pages, which is where it's most needed. This is still working fine on FireFox. I tried creating another user account and it works fine with that. Just not with my primary account. I've done all the typical things. repaired permissions, repaired disk, completely reset Safari to default and made sure all caches, etc. were cleaned out. Both manually and with Onyx, reset associated .plist files, history, cookies, private browsing. Returning to a Google search page still shows all visited links as blue, as if they'd never been visited.

Another clue is if I log out of my Google account (which I have to be logged into 24/7 for Gmail, Google bookmarks, iGoogle, etc., it starts working, then stops working as soon as I log into my Google account again. I posted this on Google Groups but got no response. This also works fine on my wife's Mac, so it's definitely a problem just in my user account. I know I could just add a new account and use that, but it would mean re-installing all 70 applications I have now installed as they're not setup for use except with my account. I'd like to avoid that and find the actual culprit. BTW, this worked fine for a long time. Just quit working about a week ago, but it wasn't in conjunction with any new hardware or software.

Mac Safari :: Safari Darkens Second Screen When Dark Webpage Loads?
This is strange. In Safari 4.0.3, OS X 10.5.8, on my MBP 15", with a second screen running (Samsung 2443BW), if I move the Safari window to the second screen, then open a web page which is dark in color, Safari turns the brightness down a long way on that screen. If I open a light colored page this doesn't happen. If I move the (dark page) Safari window back to the main (MBP) screen, things revert to normal. I don't have the auto brightness turned on.

Is this a known problem? There doesn't appear to be any relevant setting in the prefs pane.

Mac Safari :: Can Safari Zoom Specific Webpage Like Firefox?
I usually use Firefox for the mac, but recently I have been trying to switch over to Safari since it feels much more responsive. But there are two issues driving me back to Firefox and I thought I might ask to see if its the software or ME. I have the newest version of Safari for the mac, 4.0.5.

1) In Firefox I can access my Gmail and zoom the screen so I can read the small print by hitting <command> +. When I leave Gmail, logout and close the browser, I can restart and Gmail is still zoomed to the proper level. When I use Safari, it zooms my Gmail window, but it also keeps the level of zoom for every other site I visit until I reset it. I just want to zoom in to read my email, not when browsing other sites. And if I logout of Gmail or shut down Safari it does not retain the zoom level.

2) I cannot log into my Bing advertising account because Microsoft doesn't support Safari? ***?

09 :: Pages Keeps Opening In Word / Stop Them?
All of my Pages documents (which were saved in Pages and have a .pages extension) open in Word. I have done the get Info and selected open with Pages. However, when I try to do a "change all" it reverts back to Word. If I control click on document, Word is at the top although Pages is listed as an option with default in parenthesis. To make matters worse, when Word opens it says the document was saved in a newer version of MIcrosoft Office and asks if I want to convert it. If I try to convert it, it won't open the document. I have deleted com.apple.iWork.Pages.plist and com.apple.iWork.Pages.LSSharedFileList.plist, but the problem persists. It is limited to the main user account; it does not occur in my test account. Anyone have any other suggestions?
