Whenever I enter text, then close the window, I get the message, "if you close the window, your changes will be lost. Do you want to close the window anyway?"

Yes, I do want to close the window, and I want to get rid of this message from popping up. Can't find it anywhere in Safari. Please help me out. Please, how do you configure Safari so this message will not pop up?

    HI David,



    From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset. Relaunch Safari. If you still see that dialog...


    Go to the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Preferences. Make note of all the preferences under each tab. Quit Safari. Now go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file com.apple.safari.plist to the Desktop.

    Relaunch Safari and see if that makes a difference. If not, move the .plist file back to the Preferences folder. If Safari functions as it should, move that .plist file to the Trash.

    Hi David

    See if this still works for Safari 5 :

    Quit Safari, Open the Terminal app & copy/paste the following, exactly

    defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugConfirmTossingUnsubmittedFormText 0


    then press enter

    this works per user account, and will be lost if you toss the com.apple.safari.plist file for any reason.
    Change 0 to 1 to bring the warning back again.

    Hi Andy, Hi Caroyn,

    Thanks for the suggestions. I just tried Andy's, and that worked. You both rock.
