Hi folks,

 

I'm a develper and I have a big problem with Safari since few days. It happens ONLY on mine user on my macBookPro. If I change user or enter with guest user the problem is not there anymore so I think it's a Safari bug and I need to reinstall it.

 

Anyway here is the problem:

 

1) Some colors are dispplaying in wrong way, completely different from the other Safaris I'v seen and of course different from Firefox and Chrome. I mean the for exemple a 161616 grey color on the guest user Safari is more dark then the one on my profile.

 

2) Safari sometimes do not loads some Css from a web site and it's not emptyin the Cache (I'v tryied all the methods). Simply I need to for exemple Shift click the reload button 5 times or 3 and it'll load the new version of the web site. After i reboot it back to show up the old version again.

 

I'm stucked on this 5 days, I want to erease it and reinstall, how to do that please?

    ONLY on mine user on my macBookPro. If I change user or enter with guest user the problem is not there anymore so I think it's a Safari bug and I need to reinstall it.

     

    If it's a Safari bug, the problem would manifest itself in all user accounts, not just yours.

     

    To empty the cache. From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Reset Safari.

     

    Select:  Clear History  (also empties the cache)

     

    Now back to the menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Privacy tab.

     

    Click:  Remove All Website Data

     

    Back to the menu bar, Safari > Preferences then select the Advanced tab.

     

    Select:  None Selected where you see Style sheet.

     

    Quit and relaunch Safari.

     

    If that didn't help, open the Finder. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder

     

    Type or copy/paste:   ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari

     

    Click Go then move the Cache.db file from the com.apple.Safari folder to the Trash.

     

    Try Safari.

     

    If that didn't help, check Safari > Preferences > Extensions. If there are any installed, turn that off, quit and relaunch Safari to test.

    Hi, thanks for the answer but it's not solving the problem. The color are still not correct as on other safaris or browsers and the style is sometimes wrong.

    im reinstalling lion hoping it solves the situation.

     

    ITs absurd that its not possible to reinstall just safari in the way to clean up the system from it.

    I reinstalled Lion but I have still the css and the colors problem and still, if I change user, all is fine...no css problems, no color issues.

     

    Tryeid again what Carolyn suggested but do not helped. Anyone from the Apple team can Help please?
