Safari trouble



  • 1. Finding files with ACLs
    Does anyone have a good way to find all the files with a particular Access Control List entry? I'm trying to figure out a way to make some changes to a group of files that have the wrong ACL settings, but I *don't* want to simply do a blanket change. Anyone know of any utilities? Any command line tricks? Something in Sherlocks hidden keywords? Thoughts? TIA -- 'It is Mac OS X, not BSD.' -- 'From Mac OS to BSD Unix.'

    Hi I'd like to make sure my xserver is up and running and my DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly. Help please? What is the command to start the xserver? What should the DISPLAY env be set to? MAC OS X 10.4.8
  • 3. custom display mode in Tiger
    How does one set a custom display mode in Tiger? The modes that are returned when the "detect displays" button is pressed are a subset of what my LCD supports. In other words, I'd like to run at a resolution that isn't in the list. I'm certain that my LCD supports this particular resolution as I've tried it with my XP box. Thanks! Myles

I change safari's home page a few times now, but it always show the old
home page at the begining of the day. When I change the home page in
the morning, I get the same new home page all day. But when I shut down
the Mac, and turn it on again, there is the old home page showing. I am
using eMac G4 with Tiger OS.

Have you changed Safari's preferences in the menu 
New windows open with: 'Home Page'
Home Page: 'whatever you want your homepage to be'

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

Sounds like Safari is having problems recording the change to your
preference file.  The first thing I'd do is quit Safari, fire up Disk
Utility (it's in the Applications folder, under Utilities) and run the
"Repair Permissions" routine.  Then launch Safari again, and see if
your change sticks.

I would suggest to delete the prefernces of safari application and then
relaunch it.

2.Https trouble with Safari and Firefox

Hi everyone.

My boss has a new MAC G4, the OS version being 10.3.7. He has IE 5.2,
Firefox and Safari for browsing the internet. The connection is through

a proxy server here.

The problem he's facing is that he can't browse https pages on Safari
or Firefox, but those pages can be viewed in IE. I have looked at the
other groups and seen solutions. Here's a list of what I have tried, in


1. Set Safari to emulate IE from the Debug menu.

2. Checked proxy server settings for both Safari and Firefox. They're
as per the specifications, with the correct details entered.

3. Checked settings in the Sytem Profile, and the settings there are
correct too, i.e. the proxy server and port settings are entered. By
the way, the port used is 8080.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening, and if so, is there a
way to work around it.

Is it a combination of the fact that it's the newer (perhaps newest)
version of the MAC, we're behind a proxy server and Safari isn't known
for it's security features? Even if that is so, why would Firefox not
open https pages?

here's a URL of a web page that doesn't open.

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S> Monday was the first day I interacted with a MAC, and I'm
beginning to fall in love with it!

3.Safari 4.0 trouble communicating with modem

I often used Safari 3 to communicate with my DSL modem by typing the 
address -

I started using Safari 4 yesterday.  For 24 hours it worked fine 
communicating with my modem.  Then it began to stall when I tried to 
load "pages" from my modem.

Thinking it might be a corrupted cache, I restarted Safari and chose 
"empty cache."  That didn't fix it.  Then I ran through the five 
Applejack fixes.  That didn't fix the problem.  Firefox still 
communicates with my modem as before.

What could be wrong?

4.Trouble connecting to internet only with Safari

5.Trouble printing webpages directly from Safari

I am using OS X 10.4.5 and Safari 2.0.3. For a number of months I've
been having problems printing web pages directly from Safari. Usually
what happens is that the printer shoots out a blank page (or two) to
sart, and then prints only the top 3/4 quarters of the web page
selected leaving bottom third or quarter absolutely blank. Needless to
say this is very frustrating and wastes a lot of paper.

I'm using an HP 2210xi multi-function printer. I have made sure to
download all the latest print drivers from the HP website, and it
doesn't do any good. Ditto, I've checked page attributes and they see

Safari and sometimes Preview seem to be the only programs with this
problem. I can print from Word as well as Text Edit without problem.
I've had this HP printer for several years and never had this problem
when still using a Windows machine until making the switch to an iMac
G5 about 8 months ago. If I recall correctly, I didn't have this
problem with Safari initially, I think it only arose after updating
either from Panther to Tiger or upgrading my copy of Safari.

Anybody have any ideas how I can fix this, it's really getting
