Question about Apple safari

1 Answer

Jumbled text Safari has jumbled text. I have already tried the text encoding in the View menu with no luck. I've also dumping my cache & cookies & re-set and re-started Safari AND went through my font manager to clean up any bad fonts.  Still can't read a thing. What's up?

You need to clean your Font Caches whenever and wherever you get garbled text ... I use a free utility called MainMenu which does this (a restart is required afterward) and many other maintenance tasks. 
Have you changed your Text Encoding settings, by chance, in either the View menu or Safari preferences?

Why cant i find enable cookies on my ipad


The iPad's Safari browser allows you to enable or disable cookies. Most people will want to keep cookies enables. Websites use cookies to keep track of who you and various settings. Some websites will not work properly without cookies. However, if you are worried about websites keeping a piece of information on your iPad, you can easily disable cookies. Apple keeps all of custom options for most of the default apps (Safari, Notes, Photos, Music, etc.) in the iPad settings, which is where you need to go to enable or disable cookies.
First, go to the iPad settings by tapping the settings icon. (Get help getting into the iPad's settings.)
Next, scroll down the left-side window until you locate Safari. When you tap Safari, the safari's settings will show up in the main window.
To enable/disable cookies, simply locate the Privacy block and change the Block Cookies option. Your choices are "Never", "Always" and "From third parties and advertisers". The "From third parties" choice is the best for enabling cookies while keeping a moderate level of security by ensuring you have actually visited the website associated with the cookie. If you want the most secure experience, choosing "Never" will turn off cookies completely. Remember: Many websites are designed to work with cookies and may not work correctly with cookies turned off.

Where is safari debug menu


It's called the "Develop" menu and it allows you to make Safari look like another kind of browser (user-agent), open a page in another browser, disable caches, etc. You can turn it on in Safari's Preferences (from the Safari menu): Click the Advanced tab, and the last item on that tab is a checkbox labeled "Show Develop menu in menu bar". Check that box.

How to get gmail to accept cookies


When you visit a website, the server may place a cookie on your hard drive. These very small files (which got their nickname from the trail of cookie crumbs you might leave behind you) contain information unique to you, which the web server will "read" to recognize you when you revisit the site. Cookies must be enabled on your computer to view certain websites. Follow these steps to enable cookies on the browser version you are using.

Internet Explorer 6.0 Click "Internet Options" on the Tools menu. Select the "Privacy" tab. Make sure the privacy level is no higher than "Medium High." Click the "OK" button. b> FireFox 1.5 b> Select "Options" on the Tools menu. Click on the "Cookies" tab. Make sure the box to "Allow sites to accept Cookies" is checked. Click "OK." b> Netscape versions 6 and 7.1 b> Select "Preferences" on the Edit menu. Click the "Privacy & Security" tab. Then click "Cookies." Click on the box to "Enable All Cookies." Click "OK."
Enable Cookies in Browser b> Web browsers store cookies from websites you visit on your computer. Cookies can store a website's preferences, your login state on the site or track your browsing activity across a website. Many websites, particularly ones that require you log in, need cookies enabled in your browser before you can log in.

Most websites should work properly without the "Accept Third Party Cookies" check box checked. Click "OK." b> Google Chrome b> Click the wrench icon at the top right corner of the Google Chrome window and select "Options." Click the "Under the Hood" tab at the left side of the options page. Click the "Content Settings" button to the right of Privacy.
