Ok..I've asked this question but maybe by now, someone may have figured something out.. 1. I set my preferences on Safari (i.e. uncheck "download safe files", set homepage, download file location, customize bars, uncheck "Java", etc) 2. Works great 3. I close Safari after use 4. Reopen 5. Everything is back to default and need to redo EVERYTHING... What the heck is this?
