Hi, I found at this thread that I can type in the following command in terminal to completely stop webpage previews being generated:


defaults write DebugSnapshotsUpdatePolicy -int 2


I think everyone on that thread is running 10.6 and, being a Terminal noob (in both senses of the term), I'm hoping this line will also work for users on 10.5.8 and running Safari 5.0.4?



MacBook Pro 17, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 2.4 GHz 2GB
