Question about Apple eMac G4 Desktop
The Safari browser on my old EMAC is apparently corrupted. It either refuses to load or freezes up after a while. My other browser (Firefox) works fine. What is the best way to replace the Safari? If I download a new version will it automatically replace the corrupted one, or do I need to remove the corrupted one from my computer first? Also, how can I go about this and still transfer my bookmarks to the new version?
Thanks for your help.
The first thing I'd try would be to delete its .plist settings file.
1. Click on Finder (the smiley Mac guy).
2. Click the "Go" menu at the top of the screen.
3. Click "Home". This will open a window showing your Home folder.
4. Double-click the "Library" folder.
5. Double-click the "Preferences" folder.
6 Look for the file called-> com.apple.safari.plist and drag it to the trash (or click once on it and press Command-delete).
7. Now run Safari and see if it works.
You can also probably (depending on the version of Safari):
1. Reset Safari from the Safari menu at the top of the screen *when you're running Safari*.'
If your operating system is Mac OS X 10.3 or earlier, upgrading to 10.4 will (in addition to lots of improvements) allow you to use a newer version of Safari.
Good luck and please let us know how well this works. Please rate me if this solved your problem. If not, please repost and we'll give further help.
