The GLIMS fix for "no preferences menu"
In 10.6 Snow Leopard on Safari 4, the menu is there, you just can't see it. The text has no color. By sheer luck I was reaching down under my desk to grab something and looked up to see the GLIMS preference panel I had left open, then an outline of text.
It turns out that if you tilt your monitor back you can indeed see the GLIMS preference panel text outline enough to navigate and get it set up the way you want. Perhaps changing the contrast or something will help as well.
Either way, the menu is indeed there! Good luck.

Thanks, this really helps. It's easier to read the faded text if you zoom in (control plus scroll or using the zoom function in the Accessibility panel in System Preferences.) At normal size I couldn't read some of the text.
Glims folks--a fix soon, please? : )

Fix for problem
If you install Glims when Safari is closed you will get the proper Prefs Menu. Well it worked for me after I couldn't get the panel to appear no matter how weirdly I tilted my Macbook Pro! A proper install will tell you it has installed successfully. Took me 5 attempts until I worked this out.
