Have you tried to turn on the Status Bar... View - Staus Barcluthz said:I don't like safari because i can't see where the links are going.
In mozilla/firefox and most other brower the links are viewed at the bottom of the page if you hoover the mouse over the link..
In safari go to the debug menu and click Export Bookmarks. Save it someplaceThePreacherMan said:How do you import your favorites from Safari? There is an import option in prefrences but it won't work. Anyone else experiencing diffuculties? Any suggestions?
have you tried Safari's Debug menu that can be activated with OnyX or TinkerTool?MacDawg said:
Well first two aren't possible on the PC version of Firefox, but the third one strikes me as odd. Site icons (bookmarks) and favicons (URL bar/tab bar) are switched on by default. I have to deliberately change the settings:ZildjianKX said:I use firefox as my primary browser, but there are 3 things that are killing me...
One, open firefox and close all the open windows. Now go to tools-->Downloads. Now try to open a new browser window, it won't let you.
Two, close all the browser windows and try clicking on a bookmark. It won't open.
And three, i hate how the default skin on the mac doesn't show website icons in the bookmark bar or the dropdown menu like the windows version does.
Well, and one more... I can't figure out how to remove search engines fromt the search engine box.
jackc said:I'll take another look at the "polished" version when it comes out, but I recently went back to Safari after using Firefox for a while. The main problems for me were lack of single-window tabbed browsing, and passwords that weren't being saved.
Some Firefox features that I miss are type-ahead links, an extension to get rid of error dialog boxes, googlebar for searching with highlighted terms, better auto-completion of URL's (they stay out of the way), and probably a few more that I can't remember at the moment.
I'm thinking that you're the only one because for me, Firefox is more speedy than Camino and web pages are quickly shown in all cases. Of course, media requiring a plug-in slows them down--equally. Pages without such media are shown almost instantly.CaptainHaddock said:Am I the only one who doesn't find Firefox particularly speedy on the Mac? When I bring up a page, I see the page being visibly drawn downwards line by line (it's hard to describe) instead of blinking into view at once.
Also, middle-clicking links to open in background tabs doesn't seem to work. I can't browse without that functionality.
Camino has the same gecko rendering engine as Firefox, but it's very, very speedy for me! And the middle-click thing works.
Admittedly though, the Firefox interface looks nicer and cleaner.
That's what gets me right now.CaptainHaddock said:Also, middle-clicking links to open in background tabs doesn't seem to work. I can't browse without that functionality.
