Safari :: Why Does It Open Multiple Pages On Start Up

When I start up Safari it opens 2-3 pages of previously viewed sites. I just started using Lion 10.7.3 on a new 17" iMac. This never happened before on Snow Leopard.

Safari :: Using It With Multiple Pages Open?
I have been using Safari for a few years now, and the only problem I have with it is that I have never been able to have more than one page open at a time.  On any PC, I have been using internet explorer and can have, for instance, an internet radio station playing as welll as being able to surf other pages without losing the radio station.  On Safari, as soon as I have the radio station playing, if I then want to look at other pages, the radio station web-page has automatically switched itself off.  I am sure it is just something to do with the settings, but I don't seem able to fathom out what settings I need to change.

Applications :: Safari Options With Opening Multiple Pages?
What's going on with Safari (i'm on latest version & SL)? I thought it was the "fastest web browser" and yet it has issues opening 5-10 pages at the same time in tabbed mode when selecting "open in tabs" from bookmarks.I understand it can't load all pages quickly at the same time but even after few min (and i have a fast DSL connection) some pages appear crippled, some missing entire images, etc.

Mac Safari :: Safari Cannot Open Pages And Not Responding
I've been having problems with Safari on my Mac. Certain pages don't open in Safari, or take a lot of time to load (already installed click2flash to see if that helps...doesn't). After some time loading, Safari says that it can't open the page because the server doesn't respond. But when I try to open the page on my old PC, it opens perfectly! Sometimes Safari work perfect for hours and then all of a sudden it starts having these loading issues. Tried to empty my cache, but no results after. It always seems to happen to the same pages. It is not a connection issues, because the sites open perfectly on my old PC (sadly though).

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.

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

OS X Tiger :: Safari Will Not Open Up Any Pages On The IMacs
I've got 5 iMac computers in my classroom that have 2 accounts on them. One for students, one for administration. The iMacs are those old ones, with the triangle shaped body. The problem is, Safari will not open up any pages on the iMacs on the student side of the log in, but works fine on the admin side.

Safari :: 5.1.3 Can't Open Link Pages?
When I'm on Facebook or any other site that people post links:  I click on the link, a new Safari window opens, and after 15-20 seconds I get a "failed to open page" prompt that states: 

"Safari can't open the page (link) because the server where this page is located isn't responding". 

And yet, if I copy and paste the link to a new window it opens just fine. 

Why can't a link within another site open? Safari 5.1.3 Mac OS 10.7.3

Mac Safari :: Open Pages In Tabs Instead Of Windows
I've tried in the Preferences to get a link to open in Tabs but without success.There are only 3 choices and it would seem that two of them should work.The "Always" and the "Automatically" choices would seem to be the obvious choices but I cant get either one to work.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Wont Open Any Pages That Require Log In
we are having problems accessing any internet pages that require log in from Safari on our macbook pro, including Facebook, hotmail, bank site, and even this forum (on the old pc now). All other pages work fine. Things we have tried so far, restart, delete cache, reset safari, changing dns. This is extremely frustrating as we have only had the macbook for 5 days.

Mac Safari :: Memory Leak / Won't Open Pages
I browse a lot of each working day on any of 3 machines (2 iMacs & a MBP) & get really fed up having to close safari to release up to a gig of real memory despite closing ALL windows. Is this something that will ever get solved or is it just the nature of opening & closing 10's of pages & tabs during a session?

(PS please don't mention the "reopen all windows from last session" thingy - doesn't always work if interacting with a page)

Mac Safari :: 4.1 - Some Pages Open Quickly But At Times Takes Forever
When I downloaded the 4.1 version, I couldn't open it at all. I had to use Firefox to get on here and find some answers. I was finally able to open Safari after deleting all of my Internet Plug-ins. The problem now is that at times it takes forever to open a page, while at times it is pretty fast. Very unpredictable. However, I noticed a funny thing. Whenever a page freezes and doesn't open, as soon as I try to open Firefox, the page on Safari opens. I emptied the cache and history, but I still get the same problem. I don't know what else I could do. It gets really frustrating when it freezes. I tried to put up with it and see if things changed, but I wish it was the way it was before I upgraded: quick all the time.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Cannot Open Message - Pages Loading Takes Long
I've had my macbook pro for about a month. Its everything you read about when you make the switch. Great build, screen, keyboard, stable, ease of use. Everything...except internet surfing. It's a big disappointment. I spend a lot of time waiting for pages to load..or getting the safari can't open message. (When I refresh this page I often will get the page to pop right up.)

I loaded a plug in recommended in the site "my first mac"...but no difference. I loaded firefox but get the same results. My 3 year old sempron dell inspiron and my wifes new Dell studio 17 both kick the macbook pro's butt in surfing so i don't believe its my home network. I have gone to the genius bar and they did some minor stuff but I have the same issues still.

MacBook Air :: Browser Won't Open Pages (neither Firefox Nor Safari)
I began to have this same problem on my old MacBook within the last year...but I now have a brand spanking new MacBook Air (as in 1 week old) and it's worse than ever.  

Extremely often - sometimes 2 out of 3 webpages, it seems - the browzer says it can't find the server or otherwise won't open a page (takes veeeery long to do so. Then eventually gives me a "can't find" screen when I try to click around.). There's nothing wrong w the internet - it works just fine on my husband's computer. Sometimes it helps to switch browzers but mostly not.

Pages 09 :: Pages Set As Default To Open But They Open With Word Anyways?
I have Pages set as the default to open all pages files. However, files created in Pages '09 still open with Word even though the 'Open With' has (default) next to pages.

Files created in Pages '08 or saved from Pages '09 to an older version respect Pages as the default app.

What's up with my Pages '09 files that they refuse to open with their default ap?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Prevent Previously Open Windows From Automatically Opening On Application Launch (e.g. Pages, Safari)?
Whenever I launch Pages, the application opens pretty much all the documents I've worked on.  I take care to close all the windows, hoping that they won't launch again next time I start the application, yet they do.  I can't find a setting in the preferences or Settings to disable this behavior.

Pages 09 :: How To Add Multiple Red Underlined Words In Pages 09?
I love Pages 09 but I have a question. Is it possible (in a LARGE document) to add all the red underlined words in Pages vocabulary dictionary at once? I clicked and pasted a lot of reference information that came from various publications and a lot of the words Pages 09 is unfamiliar with. I was just wondering instead of having to right click each word and select "Learn Spelling", if there was an easier way to add them all in. The red lines are kinda annoying after a while.

Pages 09 :: Inserting A Multiple Page .pdf In Pages
I want to insert a pdf with multiple pages into a Pages document. I do not need to edit the text or images.

I can insert the first page of the .pdf document with no problems, and align it to my page as a floating image. However, I can't find any way to select the remaining pages of the .pdf. Is there a way I can do this from Pages, or will I need to split the .pdf into separate files for each page (using something like Acrobat Professional), and insert each file manually?

Pages 09 :: Double Clicking A Pages/document - Text Edit Tries To Open
I recently installed iWork '09. ( Pages V. 4.0.2) Now when I try to open a Pages document created in Pages '08 I get a message that says 'TextEdit cannot open files created in "Pages document" format.' I can drag a Pages '08 created document to the Pages '09 icon in the Doc and it will open it and then I can save it as a Pages document that Pages '09 will recognize.

I tried trashing preference files in both Pages '09 and TextEdit. No luck. I repair permissions on a regular basis. I don't understand why TextEdit would try to open the document and why Pages '09 does not open it unless I do those extra steps. I have a lot of documents created in '08 version.

Pages 09 :: Finding Apple Script To Make Pages Open In A User-selected Screen Position?
This is a follow-up to a response/script made previously by Yvan KOENIG that enables Pages to open a Pages template in a user-selected "left" position.[URL]

This works great for me, but I'd like to take this one step further, if possible. I'm naïve when it comes to Apple Scripts

Currently, if I use the script, it opens up in 100% 'fit-width' view as follows:

What I'd like it to do is to open up in 125% 'fit-width' view as follows:

I'd like to therefore ask if it's possible to somehow enable this in the script above.
