    The left-hand side of one of my open Safari windows is filled with an intrusion, (as shown in the image I'll try and insert below).

    Switching between tabs in the window makes no difference: the intruder remains in place. I can only scroll left and right in the part of the window not occupied by the intruder.

    However, other open Safari windows are not affected.

    • Does anyone have an idea what has happened?
    • Is it a malfunction of Safari?
    • Is it likely to be something to do with malware?

    That is the Safari Reading List pane. do shift-command-L (all three keys at once) and it will hide.

    You mean the "reading list" pane? Click the eyeglass icon to make it hide and to make it visible again.

    Thanks, that's a relief! I've not used the reading list and wasn't aware that anything was in it!
