Tue, May 02, 2017 11:18 pm wants to use confidential information in your keychain

When I sat down at my MacBook Pro laptop running OS X El Capitan today, I saw the message below (image):

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.

Safari extensions not appearing

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 webpages, though I had installed Evernote previously.

Evernote save button

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.

Viewing cookies stored by a web page in Safari

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 menu 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 Website Data.

Safari Privacy menu

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.

Safari Can't Install Evernote Extension

After downloading the Evernote Web Clipper extension from Evernote's website at GET 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 Evernote.6.8.1.safariextz file.

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.

Safari CPU and Memory Usage on OS X

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.

Viewing the source code for a webpage under Safari and changing the user agent

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.

Safari - Certificate has an invalid issuer

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 "".

The certificate for this website is invalid. You might be connecting to a website that is pretending to be "", which could put your confidential information at risk. Would you like to connect to the website anyway?

[ 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.

A .p7b extension is used for X.509 certificates. X.509 is a public key infrastructure (PKI) standard which specifies standard formats for public key certificates, certificate revocation lists, authorization certifcates, and a certification path validation algorithm.

Recovering the prior Safari session on a Microsoft Windows system

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".
