Safari not filling in web addresses automatically like it used to

Used to be able to type in something like 'earthlink' into the url address and Safari would automatically fill it in as '' but now it is not doing this. Not aware of any changes to preferences, etc. Any ideas?

Hi Douglas,
It sounds as if, in a way you are being highjacked, do you use Earthlink as your ISP?
Here are Earthlink's Opt out DNS #s, that are not included in the page, on Portforward if you live east of the Mississippi if you live west of the Mississippi
Go to System Preferences -> Network-> Show Airport: or Ethernet:
On the TCP/IP tab , enter the numbers in list form, in optional "DNS Servers" box that's probably blank.
See this link on an,Earthlink blog & this topic thread for more info.
These Verizon DNS #'s also work well for many users. See the portford link for more Dns server #'s for other ISP.
You may also consider using Open DNS
Hope this helps some.

    I have ipad with IOS 7,  Some apps doesn' t work, safari not open some web site. What can I do?

    Try this and see if it helps.
    Settings>Safari>Clear cookies and data.
    Now close Safari completely. Double tap the home button and you will see apps lined up going left to right across the screen. Swipe to get to the app that you want to close and then "swipe up" or "drag up" on the app preview thumbnail to close it.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.

  • I deleted adobe and now files won't open with preview automatically like they use to. How do I fix this?

    I deleted adobe and now files won't open with preview automatically like they use to. How do I fix this?

    I think you solved my problem! Upon following your advice, I first got a message that I had not allowed a connection to the Tax dept computers, which would prevent the file I need to fill out from being e-filed. I proceeded to then open the file at the top of which was a security banner at which I chose the site as safe. I then filled in the first line of the form which autofilled other lines telling me I was connected with the tax site. In a few days when I have the data I need, I will actually attempt to file the return. If there is a problem, I will send another message. Thanks so much for your assistance!

  • Safari not displaying some web pages properly why?

    I have been finding of late that safari does not display certain web pages properly. i.e.: text overlaps other text  and is not formatted properly. This seems to have become more common lately. Even Apple's own apple info page does not display properly. Could this be a setting in safari that I have messed up somehow?

    Go step by step and test.
    1. Delete Cookies
        Safari > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies and other website data:
        Click the “Details” button.
        Remove all cookies except from Apple, your internet service provider and banks.
    2. Safari > Preferences > Extensions
        Turn off Extensions if any and launch Safari again to test.
        Turn on those one by one and test.
    3. Delete Caches.db
        Close all windows and quit all applications.
        Hold "option" key down and click "Go" menu in the Finder menu bar.
        Select "Library" from the dropdown.
        Library > Caches > > Caches.db
        Right click the Caches.db file and select "Move To Trash.
        Close windows and relaunch Safari.
    4. Empty Caches
        Safari > Preference > Advanced
        Checkmark the box for "Show Develop menu in menu bar".
        Develop menu will appear in the Safari menu bar.
        Click Develop and select "Empty Caches" from the dropdown.
    5. Temporarily  turn off  Safari iCloud sync and test.
         System Preferences > iCloud
         Uncheck the box beside “Safari” and test.

  • Safari not recognizing my email address

    Safari is rejecting my email address and says it is not a valid address. I type in the same address running Firefox and I don't have a problem. Does anyone have a solution for me to get Safari to recognize my .mac email address?

    Quit Safari
    Open Keychain Access. (Applications/Utilities) Find the "Safari AutoFill" item. Delete it.
    Relaunch Safari. Next time it asks for authorization, click "Always Allow".

  • Safari not loading some web pages

    Got a problem with Safari where it won't load certain web pages. This happens when I try to click on the buy button on certain web sites (such as Amazon), but not on all web sites. Safari tries to load the page but stops before any content is downloaded. I've tried re-installing the software, re-setting Safari, emptying the cache, cookies are enabled, and proxies are unchecked. If I run Internet Explorer I can access the pages that Safari won't download. Anyone got any suggestions????

    Do you have Little Snitch installed? If so, check the Little Snitch preference panel (under System Preferences) to make sure that there are not any Little Snitch rules denying Safari access to any ports. If only HTTPS sites are being effected, specifically check the rule for Port 443, as Safari needs Little Snitch to allow connections to that.
    I am not sure, but I think the update changed these rules around, at least on my computer.

  • RSBBS Web Address jump to iView using same window.

    I’m trying to use a RSBBS Web Address (Report-Report Interface RRI, Jump to Target, Report Goto link) to jump to a portal iView. This works fine except that it opens the iView (with portal header and detailed navigation) in a new window. This is not what we need. We wish to jump to the target iView within the same browser window while retaining the portal header and detailed navigation (updated to the place where the iView is located in the Navigation).
    I’ve tried coding the jump to using Javascript command SAPBWSetOpenerUrl. This opens the target iView in the same browser window but unfortunately also opens a duplicate Header and Detailed Navigation in the Content Area. This means that the Header and Detailed navigation is repeated (duplicated) every time a jump is called. This is not what we would like.
    How is it possible to setup a Jump to Web Address and open the iView in the same browser window without being contained within the content area? Is there a way to “break out” of the Content Area Frame and update the entire page?
    Any help on this is very much appreciated.

    With JavaScript function EPCM.doNavigate, it is possible to code in the sending report
    web template an additional link in the context menu pointing to a portal iView.
    This runs the target web template and query.
    So far, I've only managed to successfully pass one characteristic into the target report.
    Here follows example code:
    <SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
    var dim = "0COMP_CODE";
    SAPBWAddToMenu("Portal Navigation with Parameter","myMenuProcessor","1","
    function myMenuProcessor(parameter,cell_type,filter,parameter1,parameter2,item,dataprovider,x,y)
    { switch (parameter) {
    case "1":
    DynamicParameter=FILTER_IOBJNM%3D' + dim + '%26FILTER_VALUE%3D' + parameter1);
    The characteristic being passed is this example is OCOMP_CODE.
    The string "ROLES://portal_content/"
    is the full path to the
    target iView as found in the portal role containing the report.
    DynamicParameter contains the characteristic object name and filter value being
    passed into the target report.
    Hope this explains it for you.
    If you can get the function to send more than one characteristic then please let me
    know because I would like to do this as well.
    best regards, Matthew

  • I've gotten the message Sorry, your browser/program is not supported by Web Dynpro! I'm using Windows 9

    I attempted to open up a program, it seemed to open fine until I tried to click on the tabs to view specific information & that is when I received the message that my browser/program is not supported by Web Dynpro. I checked the website for Web Dynpro but their downloads only cover Windows 8.

    There is no Windows 9 as Windows 8 is still in Beta testing and not out until 2012.
    There is Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) browser and you appear to be using Windows 7.
    Perhaps the 8 is for the IE8 browser.
    Perhaps the unnamed download you are referring to from Web Dynpro is only for IE.


    My selected Safari site is, however, I keep getting - that I do not want. No matter what I do, I cannot permanently select the address. WHAT IS GOING ON, AND HOW CAN I CHANGE THE ADDRESS TO WHAT I WANT, THANKS.

    Okay, then if Yahoo! is not set as your home page, try this:
    Quit Safari if it's running.
    Go to Home/Library/Cookies and delete the Cookies.plist file.
    Go to Home/Library/Safari and delete History.plist and LastSession.plist.
    Restart Safari and see if the problem continues.
