Updating imac g5 from safari
I had Pith Helmet working just fine with Safari 3.1.x under Tiger (10.4.11), but I cannot get it to work with my account (the only administrator account on the i Mac) now -- despite reinstalling version 2.8.4, then deleting every reference I could find of "SIMBL" and "Pith Helmet" and reinstalling yet again, it simply does not show up under my account.But what is *really* odd about this situation is that it not only shows up but functions just fine under my wife's account (standard) and both of my kids' (managed)!Mavericks is compatible with:● i Mac (Mid 2007 or newer)● Mac Book (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)● Mac Book Pro (Mid 2007 or newer)● Mac Book Air (Late 2008 or newer)● Mac Mini (Early 2009 or newer)● Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)● Xserve (Early 2009)You can check your version of OS X by select About from the Apple menu at the top left of your screen.Step One To check if an update is available for your operating system. from the Apple menu at the top left of your screen.Step Three A popup will appear warning you that you will need to restart after the download is complete.Make sure you've saved all your work in any open applications and click the Download & Restart button.For the life of me I cannot figure out why Safari on my (admin) account only blithely ignores the existence of Pith Helmet. I should note that I performed an "update" on the i Mac (rather than, say, "archive and install") and that I unfortunately forgot to uninstall Pith Helmet *before* the update -- despite my intentions of doing so -- but have uninstalled it since, without subsequent success.(And, yes, I know there are other ad blockers available for Safari 3.2.1 -- having investigated several of them, Pith Helmet is my tool of choice.) item.91672 William Staman Using the latest non-beta version of Safari on both my Mac Book Intel and G5, when I mouse over a link, a box pops up containing a wealth of useless characters / information instead of the usual information I used to get.
