Is there a way to remove safari from a mac?

I ham having some serious problums with the Safari on my mac and i wanted to know if theres any way to remove it so i can reinstall it?

You can reinstall from here >  Safari 5.1 if you are running v10.6.8.
(I'm going by your profile).
What's happening with Safari exactly? Maybe if you explain what the problem is we can help.
You don't have to start another topic!

  • I have hidden unwanted books from the purchased area of the iBooks store, but they're are still appearing on the front page of iOS as cloud downloads, is there a way to remove these from iBooks without using the hide iCloud books button?

    I have hidden unwanted books from the purchased area of the iBooks store, but they're are still appearing on the front page of iOS as cloud downloads, is there a way to remove these from iBooks without using the hide iCloud books button?
    Let me explain a little more. I had downloaded a lot of free books in the past as a trial when iBooks was first released and since then I have decided I no longer want them, because of this I hid them from the purchased section of the iBooks store. The 5 books left are ones I decided to keep as seen in the following picture.
    This is how it appears in iBooks on my mac. There are 4 books downloaded and 1 book that I have decided not to download at this time. I would still like to keep this book available in the cloud incase I want to download it again in the future. You’ll notice that hide iCloud books is not selected, if I wanted to hide the book that I have chosen to keep in the cloud, but have not downloaded yet I could.
    This is exactly how I think this feature should work. If you have hidden a book from your purchases it should not show up in the mac Ibooks app. (I am aware you can never actually delete a purchase, just hide them and that hidden purchases can be restored to your account from within the account management section of the iBooks store).
    The iOS app is working differently for me. Here is a picture of the purchased tab on the iBooks store in iOS Ibooks. Again notice that pictures of Lilly is still yet to be downloaded. This is how I expected it to look.
    If we visit the front page of iOS iBooks the view is very different from what I expected. Here we can see the 4 books I wanted to keep on my device and have downloaded. We can also see the 1 book I wanted to keep, but did not want to store locally on the device and left in iCloud (Pictures of Lilly). However we can also see all the books I had hidden from the purchased section of my iTunes account and which I believe should no-longer be visible, Dracula, frankenstein etc…
    I am aware of the hide iCloud books button within the iOS app, but I did not need to use this to hide the books I had removed from the my purchased section of the iBooks store on the mac, why are they still appearing in iOS?
    I’m still not sure if this is a software glitch or not. This article suggests to me that books can be hidden, but I had already completed these steps.

    A browse of google also suggests people may have been able to hide past purchases from the front page of iBooks on iOS in the past.
    In case there was an issue with syncing I tried logging in and out of my iTunes account via settings in iOS. Force closing the app, disabling automatic downloads and removing my device from iTunes in the cloud. Syncing with iTunes on the mac did not correct the issue either.
    Interestingly I have the same issue on my iPhone 6 running iOS 8.3 as I do on my iPad mini suggesting that this might be an issue either with my account or with iOS iBooks software in general.
    If there is a way to remove the already hidden iBooks in your account from the front page of iBooks on iOS without using the hide iCloud downloads button? Please help community!

  • The videos I purchased on iTunes are taking up all the storage on my IPad. Is there a way to remove them from my iPad to free up some storage, but store them in the cloud to access in the future?

    The videos I purchased on iTunes are taking up all the storage on my IPad. Is there a way to remove them from my iPad to free up some storage, but store them in the cloud to access in the future?

    Thx - the videos are on my Ipad - that is the problem - they are taking up all the storage and there is no room for anything else. Is there any place I can store them so that I can access them from time to time, but not have they use up all the space on the IPad? Sounds like the cloud is out...

  • My macbook pro is infected with VBS.Lys.M.  Unfortunately, bitdefender can only quarantine it and it keeps reappearing.  Is there any way to remove it from my computer?

    My macbook pro is infected with VBS.Lys.M.  Unfortunately, bitdefender can only quarantine it and it keeps reappearing.  Is there any way to remove it from my computer?

    That's Windows malware, so it cannot be infecting your Mac. It probably is on your computer as an email attachment. To remove it, see:
    http://www.thesafemac.com/how-to-remove-infected-files/
    Also, note that BitDefender is pretty bad at detecting Mac malware. I would recommend removing it. See my Mac Malware Guide for more information about protecting yourself from malware:

  • Is there some way to keep Safari from opening a new tab when clicking on a link?

    When one clicks on a link on a page in Safari a new tab is opened. This is fine if the link is to a different site. However, it is annoying when navigating through the pages of a single site such as is required, for example, in on-line banking. Firefox seems to be smarter in this regard, opening a tew tab in the former case but not in the latter. Is there some way to keep Safari from opening a new tab each time?

    Safari Preferences > Tabs (in Safari 7)
    There is an option there for specifying how new pages open

  • Is there a way to transfer bookmarks from one Mac to another

    Is there a way to transfer Safari bookmarks from from my desktop 10.41 to my laptop Leopard 10.6
    thanks Len

    On the old computer, choose Go to Folder from the Finder’s Go menu, provide ~/Library/Safari/ as the path, and move the Bookmarks file to the corresponding location on the new one.

  • Is there a way to transfer files from a mac-book to another computer?

    I need to get files off of my damaged Macbook and I'm not sure how to do it. Is there a way to transfer files from my macbook to another computer? The damage is to the screen of my macbook and it is severe- you can only see the top left of screen, the rest is cracked/blacked out. Is there anything I can do?

    If the MacBook has a FireWire port, hook it and the other computer up with a FireWire cable, start up the MacBook with the T key held down, and copy the files off.

  • Is there a way to stop Safari from jumping from tab to tab?

    I have a folder on my Bookmark Bar with 6 bookmarks that open up as tabs. These tabs contain all my banking websites, i.e. banks, credit cards, savings accounts and so on.
    I click on the folder and six tabs open up. Everything is cool, however some days some websites load faster than others so I click on the first tab that has loaded and I attempt to login. This tab maybe the 5th tab from the left for example.
    I start typing in my account and password and the first tab from the left then completes its loading and halfway into my password I jump to that tab. Royal pain in the rear.
    Also when I create a new tab type in the URL hit return, then jump back to the original tab while the new tab loads, I want to stay on the tab I am on until I am done. I don't want to jump back to new tab once its loads.
    Question: Is there anyway, any preference, any setting that I set to keep Safari from jumping around? Any way to submit this preference to Apple as an option or upgrade?
    Thanks for your replies (BTW, I am just annoyed at this but I will reward the best answer!)

    I guess you are using "Auto Click" right? Hence all tabs open at one go. I use the same thing but have never come across this even though I have "Select tabs and windows as they are created" turned on from preferences>tabs. Strange.
    I'm using Safari v3.2.1

  • Is there any way to remove artwork from all songs on iPod?

    I need to clear all the artwork from my iPod so I can put them back on, as right now they are all mixed up for some reason. Any way to remove all the artwork? I unchecked the display artwork button under my iPod preferences in iTunes preferences, but even after updating the album artwork is still there...

    If you are in Windows, you can try this...
    Close iTunes.
    Go to the folder that contains your music. Select TOOLS then FOLDER OPTIONS from the menu at the top. Pick the VIEW tab. Change the appropriate opttion to "SHOW HIDDEN FILES". Click apply and close...
    Now scroll down through your music and you should see files named "Album Art.....". Drag all of them to the trash or some other folder. If you are not sure about all this, just don't empty the trash.
    When you run iTunes again, it should not be able to find the artwork. I'm not sure what you would do next but this gives you a start!
    Proceed at your own risk. Good luck!

  • When you down load a free app to see if you like it and then decide you don't want it is there a way to remove it from your cloud, for example a game downloaded onto a child's device to trial it but decide that it is age in appropriate and want it removed

    When you download an app and it isn't age appropriate how can you remove it from the cloud so the child doesn't replace it on their device?

    You can hide, but it will stay in your cloud forever.  Here's how to hide an app:

  • When i go to sycn my ipod, it says that it cannot sync due to a missing file. Is there a way to remove itunes from my computer and redownload it without losing all of my stuff?

    Can I remove Itunes from my computer totallty abnd reinstall it without losing my media?

    Do a backup of your iTunes library files first to a external hardisk. (ie all your music files)
    Go to this Apple download for iTunes 9.2.1,
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1056
    You just need to download and re-install.
    If your iTunes is earlier than 9 series, the library folder location need to be changed.
    or let me know your iTunes version and I sent you the website
    I wouldn't recommend the Latest iTunes 10.5.2, if you are not using iPod Classic 160GB late 2009 version.

  • Is there a way to access ibookstore from the mac without starting iTunes?

    I was wondering if there is a way to search ibookstore from safari or something other than itunes. I really find itunes search chaotic since it returns results for movies, apps, music, podcast and tvshows when I am simply trying to find a book.
    Any advice would be greatly appriciated! (as a side question is there any way to stop itunes for returning results for every possible type of media? When I am trying to find a movie I am in no way interested in an app by the same name)
    Thanks!

    I liked your fix, but after an input of:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari.com.apple.Safari.ContentPageGroupIdentifier.WebKit2BackspaceKe yNavigationEnabled -bool YES
    ...the cursor in Terminal went back to a prompt (not familar with Terminal I don't know if that's good or bad), yet, still nothing on the backspace. The backspace has become such a habit and now a clunky break in my workflow, I'd sure like to figure out what the fix might be.
    I'm on Safari 6.0 (7536.25), using a MBPro, OS X 10.7.4
    Thanks!
