a. First Press Command + Option + Escape simultaneously. This will open the Force Quit Applications window.
b. Select Safari
c. Click the button that says Force Quit. This will forcefully end your browser program.
d. Then while holding the shift key, open Safari by clicking on it’s icon from the dock, and when it opens up reset it completely by clicking Safari -> Reset Safari

Let me know the results

Thank you

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
