I just got an iPad (the 3rd gen/newest one, if it matters). In Safari, when I hit the back button from a MeFi post to the main page, I am always taken to the top of the page, instead of where I was last reading. Am I doing something wrong? I don't have this problem on my iPhone.

Try to access Metafilter through Safari: success!! Try to access Metafilter through Chrome: routed to Mediaplex.com. Other websites are fine, this is only happening with Metafilter. Wassup with that. A problem on my end only or is this something happening to others, as well?

With Safari 5 supporting extensions that are very similar to greasemonkey scripts, I'm wondering if any existing MeFi-related scripts have been/are being ported over.

Safari 4 does not seem to be correctly displaying the number of new posts in a thread and I think it's the Top Sites feature of Safari 4 that is causing this problem. [more inside]

Can't seem to see the moving yellow line as the song's playin'.
Song plays and pauses fine but no progress bar.

Has anybody updated Safari today and noticed that the shortcuts to italicize, bold and link text are missing below the comment box? I'm logged in, I think java is working and I'm stumped.

I can't log in with Firefox, Safari's working just fine. Following Jessamyn's suggestions I deleted cookies & disabled greasemonkey, but just get directed back to MeFi homepage as not logged in. Anyone else having trouble? Anyone solved it? [more inside]

Just an FYI...Due to changes made over at GoogleMaps, the map on MeFiJobs now crashes older versions of Safari. [more inside]

I was digging through my "Activity" and discovered that, in Safari, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" opened the next page in a new window. Clicking "Older" or "Newer" in that
window opens yet another new window. And so on...
Weirdly, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" in Firefox opens the pages in new tabs. Repeatedly.

Enabling the italics and bold buttons beneath the comments box for Safari users?

I can't stay logged in! I log in, click on comments and am suddenly logged out. Or I'll log in and click from, say, Metafilter to Metatalk and I'm logged out again. Am using Safari 2.0.3, have logged out then deleted cookies and have reset Safari too. Same thing keeps happening. What can I do?

I suppose this must come up from time to time, but I couldnt' find it searching... I was just viewing AskMe through Safari and when I went to add a comment, the little toolbar for bolding/italcizing/linkifying text wasn't there. I see this is the same on the other pages as well. What up with that?

Tag feeds (like this one
) in Ask MeFi don't work in NetNewsWire though they work in Safari. Can anyone duplicate this or offer me a solution?

The titles of the Ask posts are appearing at the top of the posts in GIANT fonts for me. Safari.

Clicking on "add tag" within an existing post using Safari redirects to the front page before any tags can be added. (Forgive me, if this has been pointed out before... I did several searches but couldn't find the magic search terms to narrow it down to anything specific)

Something is causing my Safari 2.0.2 on Mac OS X 10.4.3 to crash after I've typed three or four characters into the "post comment" textarea on any MeFi site.
It doesn't happen with the "Post a thread" textarea, as evidenced by this post...

I am unable to add tags to my latest post. I click on "add tags", and I am redirected to the Front Page. Safari, OSX.

For all of you OS X users who have lost a sparkling opus in the comment window, this tip
from Mac OS X Hints
might help you recover what would have otherwise been lost to civilisation when your browser crashed...

i opened ask metafilter and metatalk in two tabs in Safari 2.0, closed the AskMeFi tab, and (i think) clicked a link in MeTa, and the top frame is still AskMeFi green. here's a link.
looks like a caching issue obviously but i've refreshed and it's still there.

In Safari 1.3 the background of the top nav panel on AskMe is in MeTa grey rather than green.

I’m a rookie Mac user and pretty new around this site. I’ve noticed while computer hopping that when I use a PC there is a small toolbar in the lower-right corner of the message windows on this site. It’s the one with the Bold, Italic and Link buttons. When I use this site on my iMac, there is no such tool bar. Is this a settings thing or just a “feature” of using a Mac? Also, is this an appropriate use of MetaTalk or should I post things like this in Ask MetaFilter?

I'm a big fan of Safari. Any chance of Matt, or any other programmers here, creating a MeFi sidebar for this browser?

Has anyone noticed a problem with MF and Safari >=0.67? These are the builds with tabs; 0.73, the first public release, went into open beta today. I often find that the MF home page will hang Safari until it's done (spinning cursor, can't scroll, can't leave the page early, no interaction at all.) This doesn't seem to happen with the lofi page (or anywhere else).
