    Automatically sort bookmarks in Safari

    I'm surprised I cannot find a simple utility to keep bookmarks sorted automatically. My long-standing favorite, Bookmark Sorter, has been working perfectly until MacOS 11.3, but I think it's abandoned and I cannot get any response from the developer on their site or via Twitter. Its options are...

    Adding file types to Safari's safe-open list (Big Sur)

    Anyone know how to add file types to Safari's list of safe-to-open files after downloading? I'd like to add Citrix .ica files. I've seen examples of how to do this on older versions of Safari & macOS, but reports say they do not work on Big Sur. And before I go with trial and error, I'd like to...

    Safari 14.0.2 History Bug?

    This is driving me crazy. Safari is randomly forgetting the names of websites I visit. After closing and reopening Safari, some of the website names in History are being replaced by the sites' URL. If I show History using the menu or keyboard shortcut, the History list opens and the offending...
