    Hi all,

    I'm seeing this weird Safari bug where when I "Open in new background tab" on a link, the new tab opens, but its graphic shows that it is selected. See screenshot attached. Anyone else experiencing this? The only thing I can think of that I did to my system is I installed SIMBL and GreaseKit, but I have since uninstalled them both, but the problem still persists. I'm on 10.6.2, Safari 4.0.4. Thanks.

    I have the same problem. I hoped the newest Safari would fix it, but alas no.

    This is a known issue. Have you tried removing the file in ~/Library/Preferences?

    I believe I read something on Glims' Facebook fan page that Logitech Control Center causes this. Not sure if will go away if you uninstall LCC - do you even have that installed? I saw similar issues when I had LCC installed together with Glims. I decided to uninstall both.

    Same here for the last few months. VERY annoying. I use LCC 3.10, but I'm not sure if that's related.

    EDIT: Confirmed, it's cased by LCC 3.1. I can't believe they are still producing such crappy drivers. How can a mouse driver alter Safari tabs? LCC has been a piece of crap since FOREVER.
