    Hi,

    Since updating to macOS 10.14.4 I noticed that Safari does no longer mark visited links on some sites. Example: When I visit a link in Google normally that link is then no longer blue but magenta. Or on Reddit when normally visited links become grey instead of being black. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Thanks and many greets
    Chris

    Edit: It sometimes works on Reddit but not always. Strange...

    Edit 2: Just found out that I have the same problem on iOS since updating to iOS 12.2.

    Same thing for me on Late 2015 5K iMac. Quitting and reopening Safari sometimes fixes the glitch, but then it returns.

    I'll add another instance of this behavior on macOS 10.14.4

    I've been searching online to see if there was a setting for visited hyperlink colors as I thought I was going crazy. Even telling Safari to use a custom CSS to change the color doesn't work - well it works for about 1 or two clickthroughs, then reverts to standard blue.

    Edit: now working again (custom CSS)

    Also, besides the failure to mark visited links, Safari won't let me navigate using the arrow keys. Quitting and restarting heals it...for a while.

    To add more to the issues...Safari will not print certain websites & I hear an 'error' sound. Copy and pasting the link to Chrome and printing the same page has no issues.

    Say, that's right, I have that too. Tried to print a web page and got a "thunk" noise and nothing else happened. Opened the page in Chrome and printed it from there.

    I'm still experiencing this bug in macOS 10.14.5 and iOS 12.3.1. Did anyone perhaps already find a solution? That would be awesome :)

    Best wishes
    Chris

    Under macOS, I added a CSS with this code:

    a:visited { color: #7600fe !important; }

    You can use any color you like. I just checked my iPhone and the issue seems to persist.
