CompExpert :

hi,
try to go to update your osx software by click on the apple icon ---->> software up, make sure to install all available update.

reboot your computer and try your two blogs again.

if that doesn't work please go to www.firefox.com, download and installed firefox browser and used it for your blogs.

depends on the website some work better with different browser so give firefox browser a try if safari doesn't update your blogs.


Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you.

Customer :

I am trying to use Safari, and I'm not interested in using other browsers.

This is a recent problem, and apparently intermittent. I am up to date on my OSX and Safari. These are not obscure websites, and they have worked well for years.

I already mentioned that I rebooted.

I'm looking for something to clear or an error report on Safari or the blogging software of those sites.

CompExpert :


try to reset your safari preferences file?

1. closed safari browser


2. open finder, click on the home folder
3. open library folder
4. open preferences
5. find file com.apple.safari.plist and trash it
6. after that reboot your computer and try your blogs website again

CompExpert :



let me know if you still running into problem

Customer :

That did not work. Fortunately, I just changed the name of the plist and was able to restore it after observing that a new plist didn't solve the problem.

CompExpert :

you should trash it since a new will create after open safari.

did you said it work before just suddenly stop working?

CompExpert :


also, I just checked both websites bogs.

crookedtimber.org is only up to 8/21
freethoughtblogs.com is only up to 9/1

CompExpert :

so I think there is nothing wrong with your browser or internet

CompExpert :

I also tested on my other two pc's computer with 3 different browsers

CompExpert :

I think the problem is the website having update it yet thats why you didnt see it

CompExpert :

all of them shown up the same dates

CompExpert :

so basically 8/21 and 9/1 is the most updated for now
