Facebook won't load in Safari, but loads fine in other browsers... ???

When I try to go to any Facebook page inside Safari 6.0.3 (running on OSX 10.8.3) I get this error message: Safari can't open the page "https://www.facebook.com/" because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server "www.facebook.com". [more inside]

Setting my default search engine to Duck Duck Go

Opening files in an application, like Firefox, only not Firefox

I am on a mac, and reluctantly use Firefox right now for some of my work. Firefox on the mac has become so slow and boggy, it is painful to work on. However, I download a lot of jpegs from webpages, and in Firefox, you can have the file automatically open with one click in Photoshop (or any other software), without having to download, go to the finder, and so forth. Is that feature available in either Chrome or Safari? I have done some googling, but can't seem to find anything.

Using Safari on iPad Air with Chrome on Mac

I've been using Chrome on my Mac and Safari on my iPad Air. Trying to get them both to sync with each other is a challenge. I used a Safari on Mac for a short while recently to keep the two perfectly in sync but I've since switched back to a Chrome on my Mac as it is just a quicker and nicer to use browser. On my iPad Air I've installed Chrome but nothing beats Safari on the iPad as it's smoother and uses a faster rendering engine. Chrome on iOS is a bit sluggish and doesn't feel comfortable to use. Is there a way that I can sync my Chrome bookmarks and settings on my Mac with Safari on my iPad?

iPad browser controls stupidly opposite of those on iPhone; fixable?

I want the forward/back controls in my browser on iPad to be at the bottom of the screen, same as they are on my iPhone. I don't see any way to do this in Safari or Chrome. My thumb insists on doing it the iPhone way (and quite logically because that's where my thumb already is while holding the device). It is driving me crazy. Please tell me there's a way.

How to download videos in Safari 7.0 like could be done on Snow Leopard?

I'm all ready to upgrade to Mavericks (OSX 10.9) except for one thing. On Snow Leopard (10.6.8), I am able to open Safari's "Activity window" and see most video files as they're loading there (however, not certain sites like Hulu). From that window, it's an easy Option-Click to download said video file. Safari 7.0 doesn't have this ability. Is there a Safari 7.0 add-on or something that will bring this ability back to Safari?

iPod/iTunes Weirdness, Instapaper AWOL, and Safari Reading List Options

A few days ago syncing my iPod Touch with iTunes deleted all but its original apps (My fault for not noticing that the list of apps in iTunes had, for some reason, reverted to the factory defaults). While slowly restoring my purchased apps via the App Store App>Updates>Purchased, I noticed that ad-supported Instapaper was no longer listed. Googling 'Instapaper Free' told me that the ad-supported version was removed from iTunes and support discontinued sometime in April of this year. This has led me to several questions: [more inside]

Note-taking Firefox extension?

What's The Deal With Safari's 'Too Many Redirects' Message?

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.
