    Hi, I've upgraded to Lion and for me everything is working very well.
    My only issue is with Safari 5.1, I have set my homepage in pref, but every time I start the program it opens to a blank page.
    Any thought or ideas ?
    thank you.

    Re: Safari 5.1 homepage setting

    I am having the same sort of issue, except mine is loading the last web page I was on. I have tried resetting, clearing the cache etc but nothing works.
    Can anyone help?

    Go to ~/Library/Preferences. Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop.

    Quit then relaunch Safari to test. If that helped, move the .plist file to the Trash.

    ~ (Tilde) character represents your Home folder.

    If that didn't work, quit Safari. Open a Finder window select your Home folder in the Sidebar on the left. Then open the Library folder, then the Caches folder, then the com.apple.Safari folder. Move the cache.db file from the com.apple.Safari folder to the Trash. Relaunch Safari.

    Thank you

    I deleted the file from pref and it is opening to the homepage now.
