Hello,

I've started using the latest beta (3.0.4) and it seems much more stable than the previous one. However the pop-up blocker seems to have stopped working and although I have Confirm When Closing Multiple Pages unchecked in the Tabs preferences, it still asks me to confirm.

Anyone know how to fix these issues?

Thanks

Ian

Perhaps a corrupt preference. Sometimes a new version it is best to create a new profile and set of prefs. PITA but works better and fewer of these "side effects" from updates (use to and still happens when Firefox goes through a transition too).

    Hi Hatter

    Thanks for your reply.

    I'm familiar with .plist files in OS X but how and where are preferences and profiles stored for Safari in Windows?

    Can I simply delete the equivalent of a .plist file like one normally does in OS X?

    Thanks

    Thanks to hatter, I found the plist files and edited the text to turn off the closing multiple pages option. This seems to have fixed it but the prefs panel still doesn't seem to work.

    The pop up blocker is a menu item though and I couldn't find a key for it in any of the plist files. Anyone know where this is stored so that I can stop these?

    Thanks

    I removed Safari from Windows and reinstalled from a fresh download. These problems then went away although curiously it remembered all my bookmarks.

    I suspect something must have gone wrong with the update via Software Update.
