    Wow ! this is fantastic ! say if you have more than one tab open in safari. and you press quit. you know that little box comes up
    "are you sure you want to quit?"

    I just discovered that wherever the mouse is on the screen it will move to the quit button, so you dont have to move the mouse to click it. i believe this is the case for other things, empty the trash etc...

    Give it a try!

    EDIT : its only safari. have 2 tabs open. hit command Q.

    lol you are moving to it

    why would it show the movement i it was automatic? besides the return key is just as effective

    There are a number of add-ons that provide this functionality. Some, like LazyMouse, have it as the primary focus, while others, like Sidetrack, offer it as part of a larger package of mouse/trackpad customizations.

    Got any of that stuff installed?

    You wouldn't happen to have a Logitech mouse by any chance?

    For the life of me, I've seen this behavior before and can't remember if it was a plug-in, a feature on certain specific software or a system wide preference.

    You could set it so that anytime a pop-up window showed, you had the cursor automatically appear on the blue button.

    Maybe somebody else will remember what I'm talking about and chime in.

    You can turn this on in the Tabs settings for Safari. Screenshot included.

    Nothing on that preference pane (or any other Safari preference pane) addresses automatic movement of the mouse pointer.

    There was no other topic. Do you enjoy cherry picking?
