Need Help With Safari


While trying to customize the toolbar and setting preferences like setting auto fill, adding Develop or any other preference everything looks fine, I shut down Safari and re-open and everything I changed has been lost.  I've tried removing the P-Lists, re-installing Mountian Lion 10.8.4 and several other things to fix this problem.


One other thing that happens is, I try to add a new folder to the favorites bar and all it does is loop. once the looping startes I have to force quite.  The only way to add a new folder is on my iPhone or iPad.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    Go to Safari > Preferences > Security


    Deselect:    Allow all other plug-ins


    Quit and relaunch Safari to test.


    If that made a difference, follow the instructions for troubleshooting plugins here.


    If it's not a plug ins issue, select the Extensions tab from the Safari > Preferences.


    If there are any installed, turn that OFF, quit and relaunch Safari to test. If that helped, uninstall one extension at a time then test.


    If nothing above helped, quit Safari then open the Finder. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder


    Type or copy paste the following:




    Click Go then move the Cache.db file to the Trash.


    Relaunch Safari.

    Triple-click the line below to select it:


    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select
    Services Show Info
    from the contextual menu.* An Info dialog should open.
    • Does the dialog show "You can read and write" in the Sharing & Permissions section?
    • In the General section, is the box labeled Locked checked?
    • What is the Modified date?
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C). Open a TextEdit window and paste into it (command-V). Select the line you just pasted and continue as above.
