I was restarting my laptop since it was moving slowly. But I wanted to screenshot something but when I pushed Command, Shift, I accidentally hit W instead of 3, so now the safari windows was closed down. Before I could reopen it and restore the previous window tabs, the laptop restarted. After the laptop is restarted, I reopen the safari and try to restore the previous window but the option is no longer there. And trying to find my previous tabs by history would not work as I had too many tabs and could not remember all the tabs. Does anyone know if there is way to access all closed window, and choose the one I accidentally closed? Thank you.
I have a MacBook Air 15' with 16gb ram. If I use Facebook, even with nothing else open, the website stops responding after about 5 or so minutes. I quit safari, start again, and it's fine -- for 5 minutes. No problems at all on any other apps even energy suckers.
(I upgraded from M1 13" with 8gb ram to fix this and there is zero difference.
I have a problem with a site that shows sports scores. The site is flashscore.com. When I click on a result a new panel should open but instead a new window opens. This didn't happen before and doesn't happen with other browsers. Does anyone know why this happens and how I can fix this problem?
EDIT: I'm referring to when Safari is in full screen mode
I installed a safari extension. To activate it I had to click on Allow Unsigned Extensions in Safari preferences. The problem is that every time I close the Safari app and reopen it, that check is no longer there, and consequently neither is the extension. I then have to reopen Safari preferences, click on Allow Unsigned Extensions and reactivate the extension. How can I keep the extension always active?
Is there any keyboard shortcut for switching active profile windows?
I'm aware of cmd + ` for multiple windows assigned to the same profile.
I have a personal, and work profile with two windows of tabs open. Sometimes I stumble upon links I want to open in the other profile and it requires manually right clicking on Safari and selecting the window assigned to the profile. Is there any keyboard shortcut out there that lets me swap windows from different profiles?
Does anyone know a Safari extension that can block ads on Twitch?
why when I play a pip video on safari it is forced to remain in one of the four corners of the screen and I can't center it as I want?
I'm using an early 2015 MBP, 8GB RAM. I noticed Safari will freeze occasionally. This doesn't happen with other browsers.
I have used Safari as my primary browser for years. Recently, it has encountered reliability problems that have impacted performance on all my devices, not just my Mac.
Compared to Chrome, Safari's recent inability to load webpages despite having a strong WiFi/cell connection has baffled me. Compared to Chrome, it could not load Apple.com even if I let it sit for five minutes.
I feel like I have been dealing with this issue for a while, but part of me thinks things may have started to go downhill after I upgraded to iCloud+ and started using Private Relay some time ago.
Has anyone else encountered these problems or know of a solution?
The feature from Arc browser that I really miss in Safari is the ability to quickly copy the website address with a simple keyboard shortcut. Maybe I just don't know how to do it? Or is such a feature unavailable?
Does Safari convert 7 to 11 digit numbers to links? And is it a setting I can adjust/turn off somewhere?
So since web apps in Safari on Sonoma have a limited set of options available, I am wondering if there is some kind of command line hack or similar, because I am using the "add to dock" feature to have a separate app for my email web interface. however, since "Show status bar" is available in safari, but not in web apps, I cannot quickly hover any link in an email for possible scam scenarios, but have to copy link and then paste it somewhere, which is kind of a hassle.
This started just a few days ago, on Safari on all devices. I’m not aware of anything I’m doing differently and have never had a problem with CNN before.
I found a little solution with the extension that is called "Enhancements for Youtube", but you should disable your adblocker for Youtube, which sucks. But it removes video ads and does its job. Do any of you guys have a better solution for it?
I'm not even sure what the problem is called. One example I just experienced was while reporting a video on YouTube. When you click on report a smaller box opens up with various options to select for the reason, an explanation and a time stamp. I input that info but couldn't report because the report button was off screen at the bottom of the page and I couldn't scroll down to hit it. Tried it in Chrome and everyting fit the screen properly and scrolling wasn't even necessary. This type of thing has happened on numerous other sites. How do I fix this and how is Chrome working better on a Macbook Air than Safari? Thanks.
I’ve been hearing all the time that Safari is faster than Google.
In my case, with a lot of Google extensions, and enabled flags, google is still way faster than Safari (clean safari, no extensions, nothing).
Are there like Safari settings i can turn on that will magically make it faster than Chrome?
Safari cannot even compete with my Google’s speed lol.
How is it like for you guys? In terms of speed, which browser gives you the best results? (I don’t rly care about privacy or anything else, just speed)

Hey there! I'm testing out safari to see if I can move away from chromium based browsers to it.
first thing first, because of my job I had to work with Google marketing platforms a lot, but I don't know why I have a problem loading them?
I searched a lot, but couldn't find anything on net.
I'm searching for a safari extension that allows me to search through the content of my bookmarks. Not just the title but the actual content. Similar to x-search for Chrome. Any suggestions?
My web game behaves weird in Safari on my iPad. Once every, maybe 5 minutes, the webpage reloads, seemingly without reason. It's not because it uses too much memory, because my webpage uses less memory than a lot of sites I visit, and the reload doesn't happen there. My page's memory usage is around 30-35 MB.
So, why does Safari/iOS/iPad behave like this? Chrome and Firefox on all other operating systems and devices never do this.
I finally updated from ios15 to ios17 on iPhone and now I have this monstrosity of a tab group bar on the bottom of my safari page. Is there a way to get rid of it? I never had it before the update. I don’t want all my tab groups visible nor do I want a large bar when I’m looking at a group’s tabs. I don’t see anything in settings that can fix this for me.
When I come across a form field, auto fill suggest my work email account first. How can I change that to my personal account? I have switched the order in my contacts card but that doesn’t seem to make a difference
Hello! I recently updated Safari to version 17, and since then performance has been so much worse: webpages hang still, CSS animations are slower than intended, it freezes when I click on links... So, I wanted to revert back to Safari 16.
I tried to download Safari 16's .pkg file from the official Apple links that are available on the Internet, but I always get the "403 Forbidden" error.
Would anyone be so kind as to provide me with a functional link to download Safari 16's .pkg? Thank you very much!
I use macOS Monterey, on a 2020 MacBook Air, M1, 16GB
I was trying this link: https://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/36/42/042-27537-A_K9ARYCOF67/70jgynnydk2rzerf000p08o9toi3syfeud/Safari16.6.1MontereyAuto.pkg

Anyone already encountered Safari extension to share open URL (mainly web pages) with Mozilla Firefox installed on same Mac - to open that web page in Firefox?
My phone has had this weird thing where it’ll randomly close all my tabs, it’s been doing this every once in a while for years. Today it closed all my tabs and when I reopened the app, I saw tabs from 4 years ago. I can tell they’re from that time because it’s got links to my university application from the time and shows that I was watching back then. Really creeped out. This is all on private browsing btw. does this mean safari is somehow storing my private browsing history?
Hi after latest update I noticed safari has become much faster, now I am just exited if can open more websites, because lately I noticed lots of websites can't be opened with safari. But for now it seems promising. Let me here what you guys experience is ?
