I've been browsing here for a while to try to solve my increasingly frustrating problems with Safari 5.0.6, which reached the point yesterday where I got so mad I deleted every file on my computer with the word "safari" in its name and downloaded a fresh copy, and all it would do was hang. It couldn't get to first base (the Safari/welcome page). In between, I also tried restoring an old copy from Time Machine but of course that failed too.
I was about to post a question in direct relation to all that, but decided to first create a new user, because my other browsers haven't been behaving too well either (including TenFourFox, which copes with almost everything but cannot be on Amazon more than five minutes without crashing).
I've never created a new user before. When I logged in to it, I looked down at the Dock with its giant icons, and there was Safari's, so I clicked and zoom! here I am.
I'm thinking this new user might solve a lot of problems for my poor old Power Mac G5, suffering from my hoarding tendencies which extend into the digital realm. Never-throw-anything-out-itis. True? If so I'm happy to build a new me to run this machine for a few more months until I am finally able to buy a Mini or whatever and relieve this one from Internet duty. (Of course I will NEVER throw the G5 out, LOL. I got a stack of G3 and two 7600s over here… and none of them has earned the love that the G5 has.)
Anybody got a quick tip or a handy link with instructions for selectively copying/moving/whatever applications and documents from an old user to a new one? I remember having to do this several times at my old office, and we migrated everything to the new user, and it took forever.
