Mac web browsers and eBay? Do any actually work right?

    I can never sell items using my Mac, because none of my web browsers (Safari and Camino) properly format item description text. Unlike with my PC, I don't get ANY text edit options (e.g., font size, color, alignment, etc.). Not only can I not edit any of my fonts or anything, but it just outputs the text I type in as a big block of text. It doesn't even take into account paragraph spacings (by pressing Return, you know...).

    Even aside from that already created auctions just don't look right as the formatting doesn't come out right.


    Anyway, do ANY Mac browsers work right?

    What OS are using and which versions of the browsers?

    Firefox has all of the toolbars you'd need. Just remember to edit listings in Firefox only; Safari shows in in some sort of code if you have anything other than plaintext. www.mozilla.com

    Firefox. Don't waste time with anything else.

    By far Firefox gave me the best results with entering and editing eBay auctions. I'm not sure why other browsers are so problematic, but I'm given up using other browsers with eBay.

    Frankly, you might as well stick with FF for everything else too.:)

    I use Safari mostly, but for eBay you will need to use Firefox.

    As everyone else says.. Firefox. I've never tried to edit anything in Safari. What code does it show? HTML? Or just weird code?

    Camino is a great browser. Uses the Firefox rendering engine but looks a darn sight better than Firefox.

    Safari doesn't give me any problems on the Bay of E.
