I just bought a new iPad 4 in Japan (along with a logitech keyboard case), and I frikkin love it! It unfortunately, however, tends to crash at the most inopportune times - I do not want this to turn into a dealbreaker. [more inside]

In Safari 6, I have a folder of bookmarks on the Bookmarks Bar that I visit each day by right-clicking and choosing "Open in Tabs". I'd like one of those bookmarks to open to a specific vertical scroll position on the page in question. Is that do-able? [more inside]

What's the detail, exactly, with Safari's "...can’t open the page. Too many redirects occurred trying to open..." message?
I'm getting a spate of them this week on the BBC News site. A post by Apple blames it on the site but doesn't go into specifics. (If the site has a problem, why don't other browsers refuse to open it? What's Safari doing differently?)
Lots of stuff generally unhelpful elsewhere on the net. Kinda surprising since this has been in Safari for years.

Can I drag & drop Safari from one hard drive to another? I accidentally deleted the application:-( I don't have the original install DVD with me right now, but I do have a backup on an external drive that's about two weeks old. So, I dragged the Safari.app that was on that to the Applications folder on my Powerbook. Everything seems to be functioning okay.....or am I inadvertently running a browser with a bunch of loopholes & missing parts? [more inside]

I typically use Safari, and have my preferences set to store all of my passwords and user names in my Keychain.app. However when it starts acting up and giving me the spinning beach ball, I use Camino (v. 1.0.3.) When I try to log in to a website, it asks me for my user name and password - do I really have to fill in ALL those passwords and user names all over again? In other words, is there any way I can get Camino to access the passwords I saved using Safari? [more inside]

I'm trying to find a (stable) OSX web browser that...
A) allows you to select text and right-click to search for that text in Google,
B) displays bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar as favicons (not just plain text buttons). [more inside]

My computer is driving me insane. Please help. My 1.8gz Macintosh g5 has developed several annoying quirks, the cumulative effect of which is to make browsing the internet an exercise in frustration.
Sometimes I want to pull my hair out. Here are the three things that I believe, individually and/or in combination, are causing the slow-downs. I have no idea how to fix any of them: [more inside]

I'm having a strange problem with Safari and Google: if I run a google search and command-click on a result (to open it in a new tab) about 90% of the time it will open in the main tab, thus only allowing me to click through to one result at a time. This makes me very unhappy, as I loved using tabs to quickly sort through search results. I haven't had any problems using command-click on other sites. [more inside]

SafariFilter or AppleScriptFilter: I very often collect bookmarks of pages I'd like to look at in Safari, through the double magic of NetNewsWire and Saft. The problem is that I end up having one folder with 180+ bookmarks in it. I often then manually split them into chunks of 20 using cut and paste, but it strikes me that there's got to be an easier way to do that automatically via AppleScript. However, my google-fu
fails me in that respect.
Anyone know of a link to an AppleScript that takes one bookmark folder and splits it into folders with x
number of bookmarks each in them? Or any AppleScript master and MeFi resident out here savvy enough to whip one up for me?
I'll send you a cute picture of my cat sunning himself in a sunbeam, if you want. :)

Can a non-Apple and non-Mozilla partisan tell me if, and the degree to which, Firefox is better than Safari?

I upgraded my mac to 10.3.5, and my Safari, Mail, and Help won't open now. I followed the instructions on the apple support site
and did what they said, but they still won't work. Itunes works, and all other apps. I switched to eudora and netscape for now, but would rather stay with Mail and Safari. Any ideas?

Apropos of Matt checking out FCKEditor
, and the typical Mac experience of non-functionality, are there any decent WYSIWYG web editors out there that work with Safari? I'm talking about true formatting a CEO can deal with, not a button that subs in the HTML tags for you. [more inside]

Apple/Safari question: I am at wits end with a strange problem. Every time I download certain files from my webserver (gzip'd tar'd gpg'd backup files), safari renames them. The files are named in the following format: filename
.tar.gz.gpg. Safari renames them on the fly to filename
.tar.gz.gz, which it then tries to unzip to predictable results since they haven't been unencrypted yet. Each file needs to be renamed after being d/loaded, which is kind of annoying. I turn to you Ask-metafilter; any ideas?
