Safari wants to use your confidential information stored in
"A49A5BE4-6FB4-4399-9EB3-3DBA06717BEF" in your keychain.
Do you want to allow access to this item?
The "A49A5BE4-6FB4-4399-9EB3-3DBA06717BEF" wasn't an identifier I
recognized. If you see such a message, you can search for the identifier
in the message using the Keychain Access application, which is located
in the Applications/Utilities folder. After opening the
program, click on Edit and then select Find. In the upper,
right-hand corner of the window, you will see a field to the right of a
magnifying glass icon where you can type the text for which you wish to
search. I could type just part of the string, e.g. "A49A5" to locate
the relevant entry.
After reopening the last session when I reopened Safari 9.1.1 (10601.6.17)
on a MacBook Pro laptop running OS X Yosemite (10.10.5), I found that, though
the icon for Evernote was appearing the the left of the address bar, clicking
on it did not bring up the Evernote window that would allow me to save
I had installed Evernote
I had closed and reopened Safari after it stopped responding to any
keyboard entries or mouse movement.
When I clicked on Safari from Safari's menu bar and chose
Preferences and then clicked on Extensions, no extensions
were shown. I noticed that the Develop option was not appearing
in the Safari menu bar, though I had
enabled the Develop menu.
So I re-enabled the Develop menu by clicking on Safari from
the Safari menu bar, selecting Preferences, then clicking on
Advanced and then checking the check box next to
"Show Develop menu in menu bar". I then clicked on Develop from
the menu bar when that option reappeared. I then selected
Disable Extensions. I then clicked on Develop again and
again selected Disable Extensions, which this time removed the check
mark next to that option.
I wanted to check on the cookies stored when I visited a site using
Safari 9.1.1 (10601.6.17) on a MacBook Pro laptop running OS X
Yosemite (10.10.5). When I clicked on Safari on the Safari
bar and then selected Preferences, then Privacy,
I saw a "Cookies and website data" section, but no means to view
the cookies, only a way to delete them by clicking on Remove All
However, you can configure Safari to show details on cookies that are
placed on the system when you visit a webpage by taking the following steps
within the Safari browser.
After downloading the Evernote Web Clipper extension
from Evernote's website at
WEB CLIPPER FOR SAFARI, I tried to install it for Safari 9.1.1
(10601.6.17) on a MacBook Pro laptop running OS X Yosemite (10.10.5), but I
encountered the error message below when I double-clicked on the downloaded
Safari can't install this extension
An error occurred while installing the extension "Evernote Web Clipper".
I tried several times with the same results. I redownloaded the file
from Evernote's website twice more just to eliminate the possibility of
file corruption during the download process, but the results remained the
same each time. I then tried clicking on Safari from Safari's
menu and selecting Preferences, then Extensions, which
showed that there were no extensions installed.
As with many other browsers, if you leave the Safari web browser open for
an extended period of time with many tabs open, you may find that the
overall system performance on a Mac OS X system decreases dramatically
and you may have to suffer with the "spinning beachball" when trying to
do even simple tasks, such as scrolling down a web page. The problem may
be due to Safari consuming a lot of CPU cycles or most of the available
memory. With some browsers, such as Firefox, where I've frequently
encountered peformance issues if it is left running for a couple of days
with many tabs open, it is difficult to determine which tab may be the
culprit. With a browser such as Chrome, where tabs are run as separate
processes, it is much easier. With Safari, you can use Debug
menu options to obtain per tab memory and CPU utilization information
by viewing the consumption of those resources by processes associated with
those individual tabs.
The Safari web browser from Apple doesn't by default provide a menu option
that will allow you to view the underlying HTML code on a web page. But
the browser does provide that capability, you merely need to enable the
"Show Develop menu in menu bar" option.
Safari does provide a capability to change the user agent string it sends
to websites, which sites use to identify the browser a visitor is using.
Some sites may even limit access to material on the site to specific browsers.
By changing the user agent the browser reports, you may be able to still view
the content in such cases.
When I put in the HTTPS URL for a website in Safari, I saw the message below:
Safari can't verify the identity of the website "example.com".
The certificate for this website is invalid. You might be connecting to a
website that is pretending to be "example.com", which could put your
confidential information at risk. Would you like to connect to the website
[ Show Certificate ] [ Cancel ] [ Continue ]
When I clicked on Show Certificate, I saw "This certificate has
an invalid ussuer.
Since this was a trusted work site, I downloaded a
.p7b file containing the
issuer certificate. I then opened the Keychain Access app,
which is in Applications/Utilities, then clicked on File,
then Import Items, then selected the .p7b file I downloaded.
I then no longer saw the certificate warning message in Safari. I
didn't have to restart Safari to have it recognize the website's
certifcate as valid.
If you are using Apple's Safari web browser on a Microsoft Windows system
and need to recover a prior browsing session, if Safari crashes or you
have to kill the application through the Task Manager, because it
is no longer responding, you can recover all the open windows and tabs
from the prior browsing session for Safari 5.1.7 once you restart Safari by
using the Alt-i key combination to have the History menu appear, then
selecting "Reopen all Windows from Last Session".
If you would like to have Safari automatically reopen all the prior tabs
and windows when you restart Safari, click on the gear icon at the top
right-hand corner of the browser window, then select Preferences,
then select "All windows from last session" instead of "A new window" for the
value for "Safari opens with".
The Evernote Web Clipper is available
for Safari on a Microsoft Windows system from
here. Once you've installed it, you will see the Evernote elephant head
icon at the top left of the Safari browser window, slightly to the right
of the buttons that allow you to move forward and backward in the tab history.
To login to Evernote, click on that icon and hold the button down until the
login window appears.
Once you've logged in, you can click on the button again to save
web pages as an article, simplified article, full page, bookmark, or
