Safari no longer reads RSS!?  Screenshot below.  Now we have to have a 3rd party RSS Reader instead of Safari reading RSS by default?  BTW, this RSS Feed was this support forum's own RSS feed...



Also, PDF files no longer display under Safari as well.  When trying to open a URL with a PDF File in Safari - it's just a dark grey screen instead of displaying the PDF file - even with the tick under Safari preferences (under the General Preferences_ checked or even unchecked with "Open "safe" files after downloading - "Safe" files include movies, pictures, sounds, PDF and text documents, and archives."


Any ideas!?

    Back up all data.


    Quit Safari. In the Finder, select Go Go to Folder... from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-G. Copy the line of text below into the box that opens, and press return:


    /Library/Internet Plug-ins


    From the folder that opens, remove any items that have the letters “PDF” in the name. You may be prompted for your login password. Then launch Safari and test.


    If you still have the issue, repeat with this line:


    ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins


    If you don’t like the results of this procedure, restore the items from the backup you made before you started. Relaunch Safari again.

    Thank you for the help with the PDF issue Linc Davis!  At least the PDF's are now downloading and opening with Reader, instead of just going to a dark grey Safari screen.  So thank you for that! Can't believe I didn't look in there myself and try that! 


    Anyhow, still wondering WHY would they take out the RSS feed reading funtion out of Safari!?  It really helped with web development and making sure that the feed(s) you were working on were working, the right ones, and much more...  A very backwards move if you ask me!


    At any rate, thanks for the help with the PDF issue!
