By the way you are stating your issue, I am not sure if you are referring to Safari loading to an incorrect URL and that it is not launching. So to make sure I cover all bases I will provide advice for both.

If Safari is loading to a URL when you first launch it, assuming you are referring to the URL of the Home page you need to see, all you have to do there is launch Safari, click on the Safari name in the menu, select Preferences.
* Then under General> "Home page:", make sure the home URL is set to the web address you want to see as your home page.

If Safari is not launching on the other hand, here is what you need to do in order to resolve that issue:

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} • From your desktop,
•Click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.

• From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Home from the
drop-down menu. This will take you to your Home folder.
• Locate and open the Library folder
• Within Library folder look for the Preferences folder and open it.

• Locate and remove to the Trash, these files:
com.apple.Safari.com
com.apple.Safari.RSS.com.
Now click the back button in the Finder window to go back to the Library view.
* Locate and remove to the Trash, the folder entitled "Caches"

* Once you have done that, close all windows and other applications, click on the Apple menu icon and select from the drop down menu Logout<username>.
This will take you to the main login window
* simply log back in to the same user account.

Don't attempt to launch Safari, just yet. Instead run this last procedure to repair file/folder permission on your Mac OS X volume (including Safari)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} -RUN DISK UTILITY FIRST-

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed
this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair permissions until completion
- This is not often a necessary step, but in the many of the hands-on software and Mac OS X troubleshooting

* Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary (if there are errors listed in red, re-run DU to see if those error will clear- if they don't reply back to this post right away and let me know what the exact error message is), quit Disk Utility.

• Now relaunch Safari and let's see if it launches ok for you.

If this is still not resolving the issue you are having with Safari, just let me know.

Regards,

-Mactechtrainer

Slotomania will not open - error 404 nginx/1.0.8


A 404 error is an HTTP status code that means that the page you were trying to reach on a website couldn't be found on their server.

Technically, an Error 404 is a client-side error, implying that the error is your mistake, either because you typed the URL in wrong or the page has been moved or removed from the website and you should have known.

No matter the reason for the 404 error, there is plenty you can do to try to get to that page you were after:

How To Fix the 404 Not Found Error

Retry the web page by clicking the refresh/reload button or trying the URL from the address bar again. The 404 Not Found error has been known to appear on occasion even if there is no real issue so a simple refresh will often load the page you were looking for.

Check for errors in the URL. Often times the 404 Not Found error appears because the URL was typed wrong or the link that was clicked on points to the wrong URL.

Move up one directory level at a time in the URL until you find something. For example, if www.w.com/a/b/c.htm gave you the 404 Not Found error, move up to www.w.com/a/b/. If you get nothing here, move up to www.w.com/a/. This should lead you toward what you're looking for or at least confirm that it's no longer available.

When I open Safari, it always immediately defaults to Apple. How to stopthis?


Click on Safari in your Safari menu, located at the top of your screen. When the drop-down menu appears, choose Preferences.
Select General from the Preferences menu, once General is selected, you will notice a section labeled Home Page in the main window of the Preferences dialog. Directly to the right of the "Home Page" label is an edit field containing your current home page URL. To modify this address, simply erase the contents of the edit field and replace it with the desired web address.
