OS X :: Imac Won't Start / What To Do - Reinstall Leopard?
I'm in desperate need of help. Not too long ago I installed the latest apple security update, and I've notice some strange behavior from my imac ( 17" g5 with isight intel core2 duo) shortly afterward.

I can't get my imac to start up, and I don't know what to do. I NEED to access the files on my HD.

do I need to reinstall leopard? if so, how?

MacBook :: Updated Safari, Now It Won't Start?
Stuck on screen with apple logo. No curser, nothing.

Last try got stuck on a blue screen that alternated tones of blue every few seconds. Was able to start up in safe mode ( held shift). Finder loaded after a loooong wait. Once there I used Disc Diet to empty caches- this usually help to get rid of the rolling beach ball. Wasn't able to do much at all- all with rolling beach ball. Restarted without shift key- stuck on apple.

Should I uninstall Safari?

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.

Mac Safari :: Videos Won't Stream (eg Youtube) And Safari Very Slow?
1 - safari very slow to open pages and has been like this for weeks. I have seen a solution to change to 'opendns' under System preferences > network > advanced tab but I cannot see an option for that. I think this may be my problem as Google always opens quickly. Can anyone elaborate on this solution?

2 - Videos won't stream and just hang with circle (e.g on sites like youtube) which started about 1 week ago. Only thing I have done differently is watching megavideos on unknown site. I have tried the solutions given under other threads (e.g. deleting cache files and uninstalling and reinstalling adobe flash). This seemed to help slightly the first time I tried it but still took approx 60s to stream 1 minute video. Has now reverted back to not streaming.

Mac Safari :: After Software Update Content Won't Load Is Safari
Just installed the latest updates on my MBP. Safari is not loading certain content in pages now. I can't even fully load my MobileMe sign-in page and can't select the sign-in button??! As I moved around some pages to see if other sites acted in a similar fashion, I discovered that Youtube can't place the preview panes (I see text in the header, but then everything else is blank). I've already uninstalled and reinstalled Flash & repaired permissions--- made not difference.

I also re-set Safari, but didn't re-set all my cookies. Did a MacScan on the entire hard drive-- no problems. Chrome is loading everything fine.

Mac Safari :: Won't Start Up "ct-plugins Plug-in" Error Message
I have a problem with Safari that is driving me mad. I have somehow installed a toolbar by accident, and can't seem to get rid of it it, and it is stoppping Safari from starting up.

I've read the other posts about this and followed the advice, but still it happens. The full error message is below, I'm sure I'm just missing something hidden away in the depths of the computer somewhere, just can't find it

Mac Safari :: IPhone Won't Work From Safari?
I'm trying to use "Find My iPhone" from safari 5.0 an MacOS X 10.6.3, but It doesn't work.

The iPhone localization works fine, but if I try to use the "Display a Message" button, when I push the send button I get an alert window saying: "Your Find My iPhone session has expired. For security reasons, you have been automatically logged out of Find My iPhone. Your last action was not completed. Log in and try again. MobileMe requires you to log in to Find My iPhone every 15 minutes." and then I'm asked endlessly to login.

I have emptied the cache and reset safari, but with no success for Find My iPhone.

All works fine, instead, if I use Firefox.

Moreover, If I switch user (to root) then "Find my Iphone" works fine from safari. But the installed plugins are the same for the two users. There are no plugins in "~/Library/Internet Plugins".

Software :: Safari Won't Work - Can't Reinstall Because "This System Cannot Use This Software"
I have a Mac OS X 10.3.9, processor 450 MHz Power PC G4. I tried downloading a new version of Safari not really knowing if it would be compatible with my computer. I wanted to see if I could update it because I had been having a lot of issues with pages properly loading. I've been using this mac for 4 years, it was not mine to begin with, so I have no idea what applications have been downloaded or what. Once I downloaded the new Safari and restarted my computer, I couldn't open Safari anymore at all. Now I've deleted the Safari icon from Finder in hopes of reinstalling it again. I have no disks what so ever pertaining to this mac.

I am working on Internet Explorer, but this browser does not work well with my mac at all. I need my old Safari back. I tried redownloading it, but everytime I do I get stuck when I try to install it onto the cube hd. It says "You cannot install this software on this volume. This system cannot use this software." Plus I don't have very much space on my cube hd. I don't know what to do? How can I free up space AND get my Safari browser back??? I'm very much a beginner at this so I don't really know all the technical terms that I've been reading on the internet for the last 5 hours. I've been searching the internet desperately and I can't find an answer. Btw, I'm a college student borrowing this computer from my stepdad so I only have the computer, no disks.

OS X :: Safari Kept Hanging - IMac Won't Boot Up
My wife's iMac MC508 is 2 weeks old, I had to re-install it after 1 week because Safari kept hanging. It was working ok yesterday lunchtime when I used it but last night my wife switched it on and just got the white screen with logo, then a blank progress bar then the circle thing before it shut itself down. We have tried all the key combinations that we found online but no change. The only thing I have not done is put the install disk back in for fear of not being able to eject it. Has the hard drive packed up? Does this mean a trip to an Apple store?

IMac Intel :: Safari Won't Open On OSX 10.3.9
I recently was forced to do a clean install of the OS on a PowerMac G5, Dual 2.0 GHz machine which runs on the upper CPU only due to a failure in the prior top CPU after which a thermal recal, etc was done by an Apple repair facility after changing the good lower CPU to the top position and setting the old bad CPU aside. The G5 did successfully run OSX 10.5.7 after the beast was reduced to one CPU. A later software kernel panic problem (unable to find driver for this platform) about a year after repair, led me to a hardware test which passed and a clean install of the original OS which was 10.3.9 which I wanted in order to run Classic again. I figured, having purchased a new iMac in the interim, that I would prefer to be able to run Classic on the G5 since I could once again access a lot of old files which the later OSX updates made impossible to open under the new OS.

I can use the G5 without any obvious problems other than the fact that Safari will not open and I thus can not connect to the internet. I ran the software tests and permissions, etc and found nothing to be amuck. Any ideas would be much appreciated. My new iMac connects without a hitch on the same DSL modem I previously used on the G5, so it seems that nothing is wrong with the internet side of the equation.

Applications :: Safari Vanished And Can't Reinstall?
Safari 4 seems to somehow have been deleted from my mac. The dock icon had a question mark in it so I removed it from the dock (nothing happened when i clicked on it anyway). When I looked in my applications folder it appears to have gone from there. No problem I thought, i'll just reinstall it. Luckily I have Firefox on the computer so I went to and tried to download Safari 4. Nothing happens. A screen comes up saying thank you for downloading Sarafi but nothing has downloaded. Still not a problem i thought because i'm sure I have a copy of Safari 4 in my downloads folder from a few months ago. Found it, clicked on it and went through the install process. When it get to the "select a destination" stage it won't let me install because "this update requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 I have Mac OS X 10.5.8 which means it should work being a newer version. I can continue using Firefox but it seems a bit weird that I can't reinstall Safari. I have also noticed that for some reason i can't download anything else from the apple downloads page.

Mac Safari :: How Can Cleanly Reinstall All Safari
My wife is having lots of issues with Safari on her iMac. Tabs don't open when told in preferences to do so, they only open a new window and display nothing but a blank page (I've even tried the command line tricks to fix this, it works once and then it fails again). She has pages that won't load for no apparent reason and my PC and Mac work fine, among other odd issues.I used locate -i after a /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb as root to locate any file on my mac that had the word Safari in it. I then did a rm -rf on all of those files and reinstalled Safari. We still get the same issues.Am I missing something else? I'd like to completely remove Safari and reinstall. As a last resort I will install the OS over itself but I can't afford a clean install at this point because I can't back up her home directory right now. They only thing I'm backing up is her bookmarks.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Killed My IMac And Won't Reinstall
After my intel iMac froze when running Snow Leopard, I was forced to restart it, and it turned out the HD was corrupted. But after erasing it and performing repair disk, everything is now ok. But since the failure it refuses to reinstall usually giving the message "an error occured when intalling Mac OS X"

For the last few, very frustrating days, I've tried everything I have read on the net: resetting PRAM, checking the HD is set as GUID, erasing and repairing the HD numeous times, performing hardware tests. Even slaughtering farm yard animals. Basically everything. And still it won't install.

I really am at my wits end, and to make matters worse, the genius bar here in Tokyo is so busy I can't get a reservation til Friday evening.
