when exit out of safari on my iMac it opens back the page i was on before how can i always make sure it opens a new page all the time.

    Simple close the page prior to quitting Safari and set Safari's preference to always open new pages with a blank page.  You will find that in Safari - Preferences - General.

    OK, Safari - Reset Safari and see if that helps. If it doesn't then choose a home page and set it on the same preference page as I originally suggested. As an example here is what mine looks like:

    Hold down the shift key when launching any app or the option key when quitting to "discard" previous windows.

    The problem is not a problem, but a feature Apple added in 10.7. To remove it, follow the steps below.


    Click the Apple Icon in the top left corner of the screen
    Click System Preferences
    Click General under the Personal heading
    Uncheck Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps

    no not personal headin. just go to the preferences for your overall computer. i just bought my new macbook pro today and had the exact problem!

    but this guy right here ^^ fixed it. just go to the apple in the corner, with no apps open if u wish, and go to preferences. and "general"   u should be able to pick 2 color options... 3 scroll options.... and then "recent items" options. IN that recent items section there is a checkbox. just unclick it and ur done. it says "restore windows..."


    good luck!1 i just fixed mine seconds ago
