Where is Safari menu bar ???


iPad 2, iOS 4.3.2

    At the top is the search box and url box, but no menu bar exists.

     

    There are a few buttons for specific functions.

     

    What are you trying to do?

    You don't get a menu bar as such, just :

    • back and forward arrows
    • an icon indicating how many pages/tabs you have open
    • bookmarks icon
    • an icon that allows you to add bookmark, add to homescreen, mail link, print
    • URL
    • search box

    Hi Red,  Comcast is my regular home page.  They have instruction by going to Safari menu bar to make Comcast my home page.  Maybe there is another way.  Ralph

    You can not set a homepage with the Safari browser. You can download other browsers that let you set a homepage such as the Mercury browser. Look in the app store for alternative browsers that fit your needs.

    In order to achieve something close to what you want to do with Safari, go to the Comcast homepage, tap on the curved arrow icon at the top of Safari - next to the address area - select Add to Home Screen. This will put a link on your home screen that you can tap on and it will open to the Comcast homepage.

    The safari menu bar is at the very top of your screen, up by the apple logo.

     

    Safari>Preferences>General.

     

    The home page preferences are midway down and you can manually enter the address you prefer, or if you are actively viewing the page you can click the "Set to current page" button.

    That's the case for the Mac, but not for the iPad. There is no menu bar and no way to set a homepage on the Safari on the iPad.

    Oh snap!

     

    I completely missed the fact that this was posted in the iPad forum, I'm sorry.

     

    You are absolutely correct my steps are for the Mac OS, and the iOS does not allow for a home page to be set.

    Here we go Steelers.. here we go! (if we can settle the lockout) ... and going from my terrible memory based on what I remember from the old profile I'm guessing Dolphins or Bucs????

    I prefer college to pro football. I'm a Florida State fan. I root for the Jaguars for pro, though.
