    I have been using Safari for Windows for more than a year & I actually like it. I have been using it as my main browser for that time as well for Home & work. I started using Safari so when i switched to Mac the learning curve wouldn't be so bad. My question is when I go to MacRumors on my new MacBook Pro the webpage looks different & is missing various side items. I have resetted Safari twice. I have the latest OS X updates, Flash as well. I am stumped. I will try to attach a screen shot (print screen what I call in Windows). I hope I can as this will be my first screen shot in mac.

    Look at any ad-blockers, extensions or add-ons.

    I have Intego Virus Barrier. I'll look into that & many thanks for the fast reply.

    I just looked at Intego Virus Barrier & the Ad Blocker is not on. I don't know where else to look. I don't have any extensions added to Safari.

    GGJstudios many thanks. I went into Safari & I had an extension for MacRumors minimal. Duhh. Every day you learn something new. I disabled it & everything is good as new. :D

    What about Plug-ins? Make sure they're all the same version.
    Safari > Help > Installed Plug-ins

    Edit: Glad you found it.

    have you installed any extensions lately that would affect the appearance?

    Yes I found it after GGStudios gave me that direction. It is an extension called "MacRumors mininal" from the Apple Safari Extension gallery. I disabled it. Thanks we are good now. :D
