Why Can't Safari do what Internet Explorer does in Windows

Why can't Safari developers fix Safari and the mac os to run Sirius Satellite stream the way in which Internet Explorer runs it. I had to download Firefox and run Sirius from it because Safari and Snow Leopard won't run Sirius. If Apple wants to be the operating system of choice then it has to offer what IE offers with Windows.

Hello Arthur:
Is there a question there, or are you just pontificating? Anyone who suggests that IE is superior to Safari should migrate back to the "PC" world.
The problem you pose is a Sirius problem, not a Safari issue.

  • After downloading last update itunes and safari will not connect but mozilla and internet explorer does running windows vista

    Itunes and safari will not connect after installing the last update, but mozilla and internet explorer does.

    Close your iTunes,
    Go to command Prompt -
    (Win 7/Vista) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES, right mouse click "Command Prompt", choose "Run as Administrator".
    (Win XP SP2 & above) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES/Command Prompt
    In the "Command Prompt" screen, type in
    netsh winsock reset
    Hit "ENTER" key
    Restart your computer.
    If you do get a prompt after restart windows to remap LSP, just click NO.
    Now launch your iTunes, and see if it is working now.
    If you are still having these type of problems after trying the winsock reset, refer to this article to identify which software in your system is inserting LSP:

  • Lumia 710. why can't I just close internet explore...

    I've bought a lumia 710 a month a go, and i'm pretty happy with it, but i have a question: why there is no way to close the internet Explorer app with a single touch? The only way to close de app is by pushing the back button, but this is really anoying if you have went trough a lot of pages... If there is another way please tell me, and if there isn't... Well i think it should be!

    You may try using the tabs when you go to IE > (...) as I think it's more convenient.

  • Why Can I NOT Keep My Internet Explorer "DELETE HISTORY ON EXIT" Set

    Ok I have been fighting this every since Windows 8.0 and NO success.  Its like Microsoft coded I.E. to still hold onto all of my history and cache even though I have selected "Delete on exit".  Also the Advance setting where it caches
    sites files etc, NEVER deletes.   I can perform the procedure, then close out.  Turn off my computer and when I am back into IE.  I get the "previous browser session closed yada yada.... do you wish to restore"..        
    Sure enough, when I 'restore' everything I 'deleted' still there.
    and no, I didn't "cold-shut down' the computer where programs were still running (unless it is intentional that i.e. is still running even after ive closed and deleted history MANUALLY over and again)
    Is there a better "3rd" party browser to use ?

    I always get an error message "Cannot update iOS software" or something to that effect everytime I try. I've tried plugging my iPad to my laptop computer and then my computer directly to internet connection (we have a router that allows WiFi access, so I thought I'd try to bypass the router instead), but this did not work.  I've tried restoring my iPad via connected to my computer through iTunes, that worked for a short time and was able to update the apps I wanted, but soon after one of the apps stopped working properly, and then the apps I wanted to get from the App Store just wouldn't install or load...Instead they would be having "Waiting..." for the longest time until I give up and delete them. I've tried restarting my iPad, no luck either.  I've also gone through the Reset process of "Erase All Content and Settings" i.e., Restore, and like mentioned above, it worked for a little while then it went back to square one, as I mentioned a sentence or two previously.
    I've no idea what is going on, why it's not working, or anything.  I just wonder if it's got anything to do with a slow internet connection (we don't have high-speed internet access), or something else I haven't found that may be just under my nose.
    I would love some help and input into my situation, all and any ways which allow me to keep my current iPad (which is the New Generation one), not having to trash it and replace it with a new one.
    Have you tried to restore as a new device? Maybe a glitch exists on the restored backup, try this:

  • Why can't Safari connect to free wifi when other browsers can?

    When  trying to use free WIFI in hotels, the connection requires opening browser  and then the hotel log in screen pops up for me to log in (room number or sometimes just to say "agree")
    Safari does not work!
    I set my network connection to Automatic
    The WIFI address I want shows up so I  can select and the button turns green,next to "Wifi" in Network Preference
    But when I then launch Safari, nothing  ... I cannot log into the hotel's network
    Yet if i launch Chrome or FireFox, immediately the hotel's window pops up  and then I am fully on the Internet (and can use Safari
    I have no firewall or such , so why can't Safari do what other browsers can?

  • Flash Player works in Safari but not Internet Explorer 9

    I've installed Flash Player 10.3 and it works in Safari but not Internet Explorer 9. When I look in Manage Add-Ins I see Flash Shockwave but not Flash Player. My operating system is Windows Vista Ultimate (32bit). Safari is 5.0.5 and IE 9 is 9.0.8112.16421. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing Flash Player and uninstalling Norton 360. Nothing has worked so far. Can you help?

    Thank you for your reply. Shockwave is loaded and enabled.
    The files in flash directory are: a folder called FlashPlayerTrust: file, flash10q.ocx: file, FlashInstall.log; file, FlashUtil10q_ActiveX.dll; file, FlashUtil10q_ActiveX.exe, file, install.log.
    There is no file: NPSWF32.dll.
    When I test the browsers I get no spinning logo in either Safari or IE9. Safari says: missing plug-in, where I think the logo should be. IE-9 says nothing at the same location.
    Thanks.

  • Spry menu works in Firefox and Safari, but not Internet Explorer

    I designed my school website in CS4 and  CS5.  The left spry menu bar appears correctly in Firefox and Safari, but in Internet Explorer the gray background and buttons do not appear.  You can only see the text and when you scroll over the text, it disappears even though when you click on it, the link does appear.  The website is http://ml.chinookschools.org.  I created the site on a mac and I am hosting it on a mac mini server on my network at school.  I am a beginner with Dreamweaver and I'm not sure if someone can help me with this, but I would sure be appreciative for any help offered. Here is the source code for the main template page:

    You are not using the latest Spry files
    The latest version of the Adobe Spry Framework is 1.6.1, this is the same version that ships with Dreamweaver CS4. If you use Dreamweaver CS3 (uses Spry 1.4), its wise to upgrade your files to the latest version. This can easily be done using the Spry Updater that can be found here.
    Then, if you have a look near the bottom of SpryMenuBarVertical.css you will see that the white background colour has been specified for IE as in
    @media screen, projection
        ul.MenuBarVertical li.MenuBarItemIE
        display: inline;
        f\loat: left;
        background: #FFF;
    Change the value to #CCC and it will have fixed that part of the problem.
    When you upgrade to the later version of Spry, make sure to keep a copy of the CSS file as a reference to modifying the new CSS file.

  • Why can one mac access the internet and not the other?

    Hi I have just installed a 2nd generation Airport Express base station. I have setup a network and I can connect to it to access the web. Here's the rub, only my Macbook Pro can connect. My Macbook Air cannot connect? A weird error message says (translated from Swedish): Airport has the selfapplied/selfselected IP adress 169.254.67.130 and will not be able to connect to the internet.
    Why can one mac access the internet and not the other? Is there something simple that I can do to get more macs to be able to use my Airport Express to access the internet?
    Tech details:
    Airport Express 2nd generation (just purchased) model 1392
    Macbook Pro running 10.8.2
    MacBook Air running 10.6.8

    It seems the Airbook assigns a dummy IP address so somehow it doesn't reach and receive an IP from the Express. I deleted the previous Express setting restarted the Air connected again, restarted the modem, restarted the Express nothing....
    I spoke to the internet provider and the cable modem does not require any username or pw. from the modem to the cable it's one public ip, pure internet is flowing from the modem to the Express but the express doesn't seem to assign any IP address apart from the one assigned to the Macbook Pro.
    Do you need a screendump of the settings on the functioning Mac or the faulty one? What settings are you interested in i.e. which tab should it shot?

  • Why can't Safari be like the others?

    Why oh why can't Safari be like Firefox who allows you to organize or view your bookmarks by name or jazz up your toolbar? These are such little things in the grand scheme of browser design. Don't they know that Mac users are colorful and creative and would really really really like a little help getting organized? Why should I be forced to use another browser simply because I want these simple features? Come on Apple, meet the competition - I'm feeling punished for my loyalty!

    Hi Again Emlanie.
    I'm suspecting that maybe you were hoping for that really cool import bookmarks feature that FF has. I Iike that myself. 'POOF' it's done! But I don't like it enough to use FF as my main browser. Mulder was right... it really depends on what you want out of it. And as I told you before, I like it clean and simple.
    BUT, if you want bookmarks in Safari, it's really no big deal. Trust me, I set these up my first week of ever using any computer... so I'm pretty sure you can do it.
    My suggestion for setting up Bookmarks would be:
    1.) Decide how you want to categorize your bookmark 'headers' in the bookmarks bar. I do mine by subject: Restaurants, Tickets, Banking and so on. This makes it easier when you add a bookmark, and is more conducive to looking for one later, if you have alot of them as I do.
    2.) Go to Bookmarks in the Safari menu bar and click on 'Show All Bookmarks'. Proceed to make the folders you'll need with your header titles on them by using the '+ add folder' button at the bottom of the left hand column. Make them all.
    3.) Once your done, proceed to drag each folder to the column on the right, starting at the top, and in the order you want them on your Bookmarks Bar. The top will show as the left side of your BM bar and so on to the right. I do mine alphabetically. You may choose to do it by favorites or most frequently visited, whatever. As you drag each folder to the right column in the order you want, it is automatically placed on your BM bar. Now all you have to do is add bookmarks.
    I've checked FF and there is no export feature to Safari (only import, nice trick :o) So, you can add your bookmarks by just visiting your sites and then 'add bookmark' then all you have to do is choose which (already waiting) folder to place it in. Really easy. And I've got loads of bookmarks!
    So.... if you decide you want to try Safari for a bit and see if you like it, I hope this helps a little.
    Good Luck and Have Fun!
    MWN :o)

    I have an apple id but ı can not use it for sign in to itunes connect account while publishing my ibook document. Why ı can not login? What can ı do to figure out this problem?

    As note already on the iBA forum [ AppleID for ibooks publishing ], you need two IDs. You can't use your developer ID.
    If you already signed up for books with that ID, you need to talk to Apple to straighten things out.
