    Guys, I just "updated" to Mavericks. I have Safari setup to startup automatically on Login - but this isn't happening.

    Is this yet another Mavericks problem? If so, has anyone managed to fix it - and how?

    Hi,

    I don't know, but you could try :

    In System Preferences, Users & groups, Login items : delete Safari, then add it again.

    If this does not work, try deleting the relevant .plist file :

    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist

    In Finder :

    Menu bar / Go, press Option key to unveil the Library.

    Library / Preferences : move com.apple.loginitems.plist to the trash.

    Do not empty the trash.

    Restart the Mac.

    If this did not work, open the trash, right-click on com.apple.loginitems.plist, choose "put back", then "replace".

    Thanks mate. Alas Trashing the .plist didn't work.

    Any other suggestions, please?

    Did you readd Safari to the login items ?

    (trashing the .plist has emptied the login items list).

    If not, add it again, of course.

    Strange indeed.

    I would try to use "Maintenance" (Titanium software), just in case.

    Uncheck these boxes before running it :
    Spotlight index, Mail's envelope index, Web Browser caches and history.

    I'm assuming this is a 3rd party software?
