The font in Safari's bookmarks bar and tabs bar has suddenly changed

The font in Safari's bookmarks bar and tabs bar has suddenly changed to a lighter font.  How do I change the font back?  I'm not speaking of the font size/type in the web browser in viewing web pages, but the font in the application itself has changed. It's rather annoying and would like to be able to change it back!  I'm running Safari v5.1.7

OK, Margie, here's what to do . . .
First Quit Safari.
Then Find your User's (Home) folder library. 
It's hidden, but here's how you find the Home Library:
Click on the desktop to get the Finder menu.  Then go up to  "Go" in the menu bar, while holding down the option key.
You'll now see the User Library in the drop down list. Open it, then look for the Fonts folder.
Take the fonts folder to the desktop.
Restart Safari.
Any better?
(Warning:  This is only for the Users/Home > Library > Fonts folder.  Under no circumstances, should this be done with the SYSTEM > Library > Fonts folder.)

  • Is it possible to remove the delimiting line between Bookmarks bar and Tab bar?

    I place the Tab bar between the Bookmarks bar and the page content area, as the attached image shows.
    Is it possible to remove the delimiting line between Bookmarks bar and Tab bar? I feel that line is redundant.

    Your Tab bar doesn't look standard.
    Did you check the code with the default theme if you currently use a custom theme?
    ''(note that you can still use the code with a smaller font size if you like the monospace font; I do prefer this to make it easier to click the mouse)''

  • How to merge title bar and tab bar on Gnome desktop?

    Not exactly a Firefox issue, but if it works fine on Windows it should work on Gnome too...
    How can I merge title bar and tabs bar?
    In Windows if we hide the menu bar Firefox puts in a single line Firefox button, tabs and minimize, maximize and close buttons. But in Gnome it keeps the separated title bar (with the minimize, maximize and close buttons).
    Is there any way to really implement it on Gnome Desktop?

    I want to back up what was said here. Chrome and Chromium have done this for as long as I can remember and the Linux distribution is entirely irrelevant in this case (as in most cases). There is an option to use the "system title bar and borders" in Chrome. If applied Chrome will have that blocky, chunky effect of not having the tabs overlapping into the title bar that firefox has. By default chrome does not use the system-provided title bar and borders. They wrote their own. The result is it looks nice. I prefer firefox by miles over Chrome, but have to admit it is chunky and ugly around the edges by comparison.
    The problem is not that it is "not possible in Linux." As a dedicated Linux user, hearing that oft-repeated phrase gets really old. There is nothing about Linux that makes things not possible when it comes to coding features. What is going on is the shortcuts available to make the coding quick and easy may not already exist. Fewer people use Linux, fewer people develop for Linux, and there is often less existing code base already written for Linux to make a coding job quick and easy. Also, there is less incentive to write original code to make something work for Linux because we are relatively few; the countless minions using Windows are all complaining about other things and much more loudly so.
    There is no doubt the task could be accomplished--which I would love to see--but the developers have to prioritize. I get that. Just wish they'd be honest rather than use the lazy answer of "It can't be done on your system."

  • Scroll bar and tab bar turn to images, images on a page repeat themselves

    I don't know exactly how to explain my problem so I'll just give some examples.
    - On youtube, video thumbnails copy themselves on top of the other video thumbnails, and sometimes I can see 2 or 3 same thumbnail, but when I hover the cursor above them they return to normal. The names or video links are unaffected, just the thumbnail.
    - On facebook and some other forums, same problem exists. One thing I noticed, it doesn't affect huge files, as in it doesn't replace huge images but copies something like 200x200 image to some other place.
    - Some of the tabs in tab bar and scroll bar sometimes turn into diagonal patterns, and scroll bar sometimes has the same problem I gave as example above. The grey default layer turns into an image. But hovering the cursor above it returns it to normal again.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi, thanks a lot for the support. I've found the solution!
    I've checked all of the installed programs on my system. All programs are from verified publishers.
    Actual problem was with graphic drivers. My laptop is Sony Vaio and therefore I had the recommended latest drivers (for my graphic card) available from Sony website installed. The graphic card is from NVIDIA GeForce. So, don't know why but I uninstalled all graphic drivers from the system and downloaded the latest drivers available for my graphic card hardware from NVIDIA website. Now the new latest drivers from NVIDIA solved the problem !!! Firefox is working perfect. No problem on any website.
    May be the same can work for other Firefox users also having this problem. No need to disable "hardware acceleration when available" in Firefox.
    Happy !!!! :D :D

  • Firefox 35 won't hide address and tab bar in full screen on OS X 10.10

    Hi, when I put firefox full screen, I expect the address bar and tab bar to auto-hide. From google searching it seems like this was expected behavior some time ago. A pic -> 1000 words.

    I also tried disabling all add-ons and nothing changed.

    You would normally see the context menu with Hide Toolbars and Exit Full Screen mode if you right-click a toolbar in full screen mode.
    Do you have any code in Stylish that could be causing issues like that?

    Nope, zero styles in Stylish currently, this is a new install. As well I've tried going full-screen with all addons disabled and I get the exact same result.

  • How to Make Fonts Bigger in Safari Menu Bar and Tabs

    Hello,
    I just set up a new IMAC 27" for my mom and she cannot read the menu bars and tabs in Safari. I know how to make the text of the webpage itself bigger, but is there any way to make the text in the menu bars and tabs bigger.  Someone sugggested Opera browser. Would that be a better option?
    Thanks
    John

    Welcome!
    I had the same issue with my 27-inch--here's how I fixed it:
    1) Go to System Preferences > Displays and select the "Displays" tab
    2) For "Resolution" there are two buttons: "Best for Display" and "Scaled." Select "Scaled."
    3) Now you should see a list of resolutions. The default is probably 2560x1440. Change it to 1920x1080.
    I don't have great eyes but this setting makes it easy for me to see. It makes all menu bars including Safari about 3/10ths inch wide and the menu lettering close to 1/4-inch tall.

  • Address bar and menu bar hidden unless I expand page and use the pointer

    I am a new user of imac.  Can you please help me - the menu bar and address bar and search bar does not show when I open Safari.  I can get it if I expand the page and use the pointer to point at the top of the screen.  This is the only way I can use it now.  I hope you can help I am not too savvy yet on this lovely machine.

    If you are using Lion OSX, they have implemented a full page feature for many programs.  If you are running it full screen (like it sounds like you are) then you just move your mouse up to the top of the page for those items to appear.  If you don't like full page, there is a button in the top right corner (it has 2 arrows pointing at each other) and you can click that and bring it back to the normal mode.
    Hope that helps.

  • How can I change color on bookmark bar and tabs?

  • Larger fonts in Menu bar and title bars?

    I recently purchased an Intel Mac Mini for my mother. She does not have the greatest eyesight and I would like to increase the size of the font used in the menu bar, window title bar, etc.. In Windows there is a "large font" theme that does this very nicely.
    Is this possible?
    The only thing I found that might help is the "Zoom" mode and thats not going to work. She has enough trouble using the mouse as it is and this will only be more difficult...
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,
    Welcome to Apple Discussions!
    You can use Universal Access, it's in Control panels
    to 'display fonts no smaller than' a specific size,
    this is probably what you're looking for
    regards,
    Peter.
    OK, Let us try this again.
    If I bring up "System Preferences" and then click on the "Universal Access" doohickey I get a control panel applet that has 4 tabs. The first tab labeled "Seeing" does not contain any option to set a minimum font size. It only contains the "VoiceOver", "Zoom", and "Display" options. None of these options allow me to set the minimum font size. The other tabs in the universal access applet are "Hearing", "Keyboard", "Mouse and Trackball" -- none of these contain anything to do with setting font size.
    Perhaps you can provide more detailed instructions to find this mysterious font size setting?
    I just searched again in this forum and found this recent discussion which seems to say it is not possible to somehow enable larger fonts in the menu bar and title bar and such. This is ridiculous. Since you can now get LCD displays that have very high pixel density the physical size of these fonts is quite small. Changing the display resolution is not a valid solution since everything gets blurry when you use an LCD at non-native resolution.
    Here is URL to recent discussion.
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=3308141
    Please tell me that it is possible to increase the size of the font in the menu bar... If I cannot do this I have spent $700 on a computer my mother cannot use.

  • How do I view the Horizontal Scrolling bar and status bar at the bottom of the screen. I can only see the top menus, toolbars and vertical scroll bar?

    Before the most recent upgrade, the bottom horizontal scrolling bar and status bar appeared on my screen. Now since upgrading, I cannot see the. Anyone ideas how to restore them?

    If you haven't already, you could force-quit Quicktime by using the menu option from the desktop (finder) and choose Quicktime.
    Not sure what you have frozen on the screen, be it a failed movie, or some unusual screen shot. If you can find by date (created) you may be able to look for .mov or quicktime suffix name or other video file content to delete it.
    And you may have to restart your computer and perhaps run repair disk permissions from Disk Utility's first aid on the hard disk drive in your computer.
    Not sure if all that would help now, but it is something a few days late...!
    Good luck & happy computing!

  • How can I combine the nav bar and menu bar on the same line to save space?

    Firefox v29 seems to be a huge step backward in customization. I need to save space for content so previously I turned off tabs and combined the menu bar and nav bar on the same line. The url space is way too long anyway. Now with v29 all my customization is gone and I cannot get it back. I can no longer move items on the nav bar to combine it with the menu bar. Why was this done? It only limits my ability to customize my browser? I am very frustrated that you took a great browser and ruined it.

    I get it that Firefox has changed, but the change is for the worse. It makes it impossible to customize menus as I had before v.29.
