I noticed recently that page anchors on MeFi were no longer working on iOS if opened in a new tab. Any links to specific comments just don’t work - the page loads, but I’m placed at the top, not the comment itself. It appears to be a known quirk with a usable solution. Can this be fixed?

Is there anything that can be done about being locked out of editing a draft post after changing tabs or exiting the editing box on iOS Safari? [more inside]
When I am under the fold and then swipe to the right to go back to the main page, it snaps back to the top of the page instead of where I left off. So I need to scroll down to find where I was. It doesn’t happen with other MeFi pages or other pages in general, just AskMeFi. I use Safari. It’s so annoying I often just give up! Please help. [more inside]
When I load this page, regardless of settings, it jumps back and forth between two apparently presentations and is totally unusable — you can’t read or click anything. Is this just me, or is it a broader problem? My iPad is new and up to date.
Hi friends, Remember when yourcelf made GraphFi and it was great? Well, it still is great, only now it is also available as a chrome extension that I threw together. I've also added another thing that I've always wanted to make threads easier to follow - user tagging! Yay! Enjoy it (or hate it), and let me know what you think! Previous safari extension by nicwolff.
I am too lazy to select a bookmark every time I want to use yourcelf's excellent GraphFi bookmarklet, but apparently not too lazy to write a wee Safari extension to add a little ➡️ button to each post page that runs it.
I have noticed a change in behavior in the new Retina iPad mini running iOS 7 (from the original iPad mini running iOS 6). [more inside]
Due to a couple of recent MetaFilter user requests to return it to working status, I have updated the popular (6K+ downloads on userscripts, more elsewhere) HowlsOfOutrage Greasemonkey script. The script displays a popup window of all users favoriting a particular MetaFilter post or comment on mouse hover over the favorites text. In addition, I've updated the Chrome extension, and added a new Safari extension. Testing was successful, but not exhaustive. All completely free as always, natch. [more inside]
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?

Curious about MeFi/AskMe in relation to Safari 5.0's Reader function. [more inside]
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 5 (on Mac) breaks the post comment box formatting options? [more inside]
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.
Running Safari 4 (beta i know) the blue will load everything except the page content. Loads banner, side bar. but no page content. If i hit reload it loads up. Anyone else having this problem? [more inside]

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?
Text fields are rendering oddly in Safari for me...
I have a small problem sorting the front page of MetaFilter. [more inside]
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.
Something's odd with my question thread. Here's what the bottom of the page looks like in Safari and Firefox. I reset Safari and I'm still getting the same thing.
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).
