Currently Being ModeratedDec 28, 2008 6:54 AM (in response to Punykots)I asked because I've seen posts where similar behavior was caused by corrupt mobileme sync data.
Try [resetting the sync data|http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1497] (or turning it off).
Then delete the file homedirectory/library/preferences/com.apple.dock.plist and enter the following command in terminal
This will reset your dock to the defaults.Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Mac Pro 2.66GHz, powerbook G4 1.5GHz
Thanks, tried your instructions, but the icon disappeared from the dock as soon as I quit Safari. The icon jumped from its position (after Terminal - killall Dock instructions) next to the email icon in the dock to just before the divider in the dock and as I said as soon as I quit safari, it disappeared. Is there something else I could try?Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

When you put the icon into the dock,
are you selecting it, and then clicking on "Keep in Dock???"MBP, 2G; iMac Intel2, 1GB; G4 iLamp; PB G4; Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.5.5), Cable I'net; LaCie Ext. HD
Currently Being ModeratedJan 1, 2009 2:12 PM (in response to Punykots)sorry, no other suggestions. I'm fairly certain mobileme is to blame.
did you turn off mobileme syncing before deleting the preference file?Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Mac Pro 2.66GHz, powerbook G4 1.5GHz
Currently Being ModeratedJan 3, 2009 8:28 AM (in response to Punykots)My safari icon has disappeared from my ipod touch--and yes, I'm using mobileme. any tips on how to reinstate it? (I've checked apple's documentation and as far as I can tell, it is not possible to remove pre-installed apps. go figure.)
many thanks!ipod touch (Gen 1), Mac OS X (10.4.5)
