What exactly does disabling cookies on Safari do? 

by on December 15, 2010

Q: If someone could give me a definitive answer to a simple question for computer person but for me a little too complicated.

By disabling the cookies acceptance on Safari, does that mean that websites are unable to see who you are and cannot access your computer?

 
 

How do I view my Safari browsing history as a list instead of images? 

by on November 1, 2010

Q: When I click on “Show All History” I want my Safari browsing history to show up as a list, not a visual of mini-web pages for me to flip through. That way I can clear individual sites I don’t want in my history, without clearing the entire history. For example, I can clear today and leave the other days intact. Or I can just delete some sites from a given day’s history. For some reason it’s no longer showing as a list. Is there any way I can choose the format it appears in.

I am aware of the Private Browsing option. But I’m in a situation where I can’t always use that. Or sometimes I might forget it.

I found the list the perfect way to manage browsing history. I hope there’s still a way for me to view my history like that. I’m not sure if I changed a setting without knowing it or if it’s just the way Safari is now. Any suggestions? Btw, I’m on a Mac in case it makes any difference.

“A connection problem has occurred. This may be caused by a network configuration problem on your computer. Please check your settings and try again. Error Code: 102 10″

Where does Safari on Windows 7 download files to? 

by on January 27, 2010

Q: I had downloaded the trial version of iWork from Apple using my Safari web browser but had not noticed the small print that explained that it was for Macs only. It was a big file and wouldn’t setup. I can’t find the file to delete and am wondering where it is? I am using Windows 7 ultimate.

How come when I upload my web files to my server I cannot see them? 

by on May 9, 2009

Q: I am trying to upload a site and am having problems. I used Dreamweaver to put the files up to the ftp address and when I type in the URL it says “test index file”. The index file is at the site root.

My other problem is that I compressed the filesize of the site by converting images to .pngs but when I test it on Safari I see nothing.
