Does it add anything outside security? Like stability, fan noise fixing, boot time acceleration, and of course Snappiness?

I'm downloading it right now, will report back when I restarted.

Downloaded and installed. No problems on a SP 1.8 G5. I was hoping (with no actual basis) that it would fixed the problem with certain https sites in Safari not displaying autofill info, but no dice.

The cleaning up after the install took a while...

Anyways, if you're wondering what this update does to your boot time, let me tell you: It's back to normal! Like before 10.3.2. Wonderful.

Arg. On one hand I am happy that Apple releases security updates and what not because.. you know.. they are security updates. But I swear if one more security update or .x update or one more thing breaks my PHP and requires me to restart my computer I am going to be really really [insert dirty word of choice here]

Same here. I'm not going to install it just yet because I can't afford to have php broken (again). I know it's an easy thing to fix but do they have to change the httpd.conf file EVERYtime?

Really I know its just a matter of renaming a file to fix it.. But it gets quite annoying after a while. Restarting is bad enough. I never restart this beast.

I usually don't even install security updates anymore. Or even .x upgrades until I figure its about time to do some catching up and then I`ll let it update

The php is not broken for me. I just had to trash the load of index.html files that it installs taking precedent over the index.php. Though I expect if you changed the order in the config file, even that wouldn't be a problem. It appears to be using the previous httpd.conf file because my other changes are still in effect.

Cool... what's your IP again?

These updates are the only time I reboot, but I always make sure I install them soon after release. (Let others take the first bullet, but get in there quickly enough.)

Meh, I am behind a router - and encrypt important files, I also back up my important stuff on CDs. Anyone who hacked into my computer would be very disappointed.

Huh. I had no idea! Good to know: now I can stop hoping my AutoFill will come back with each update.

Bootcache is not fixed. Boot time is as slow as ever. I am going to do the manual fix now. I avoided it hoping the developers would get their act straight in the next patch.

I installed the security update as suggested on my 12" PB. When I restarted, all my added programs had disappeared! The basic programs that come with the PB were there, but not any that I had added. I restarted the PB again, and, to my relief, all my programs were back. That kind of scare I don't need. Fortuinately all is now well. I haven't noticed any change in speed. I am using OS X 10.3.2.

So did they or did they not fix the slow boot problem? I never used anything before 10.3.2 and it already boots faster than any Jaguar build so I don't care that much, just curious.

It did the trick for me, but not for some others.
post #23 of 36
Well I'm going to install it, if it hasn't caused trouble for anyone. Are there any known issues or anyone having problems with it?

Thats interesting. I disabled autofill and it still does it.

I installed it and all I know is that my iMac is running very well. Even AOL hasnt crashed on me once while it had been doing so at least 2 times a day. It may be a coincidence but everything is actually running very well for me right now. Im almost getting used to all of OSX' quirks and getting more comfortable with it.

Odd, but the distinction here is that websites can disable it *themselves*, and Safari will respect that, unlike some browsers. So you can have Autofill enabled, but it *will not work* with some sites because *the site* has requested it be turned off.

I would prefer to turn it of completely but it wont let me. I hate autofill, I find it annoying.

Anyhoo, have you noticed hat when you click once in the space to enter a web address in most browsers the whole space will be highlighted? In Safari it does not do this. I do a lot of copy and pasting and its much faster to highlight the space with a click, then to have to drag across it.

Yes, the URL field is a text field, so it acts like every other text field across MacOS X... consistency is good.

Single-click sets the cursor, double-click selects a word, triple-click selects the line. Just like everywhere else.

I *HATE* trying to select a section of a URL to edit it in, say, IE. It's freakin' tedious.

As Kickaha says: this is standard behaviour.

But perhaps you should save yourself some mousework and hit ?-L, which highlights all the URL text?

edit: blast, that ? was an apple when I entered it...

As the above two said, this is standard behavior for Mac OS X text fields.

Also, you should note that Safari's behavior is the same across most Mac web browsers, contrary to what you said. Camino and OmniWeb both exhibit the same behavior as Safari. Mozilla is the only one of the bunch that breaks the rule, but I suppose that can be forgiven since its UI is mostly all platform-independent code anyway.

So, to sum up:

To select the entire URL entry field you can:

1) Triple-click in the field

2) Single-click on the favicon (nice catch there, hadn't noticed this one )

3) Hit Cmd-L

All three seem simple enough to me.

You guys rock my world. Thanks again.

But wait, did you think I didnt have another issue?
When I open a new window in Safari the page is off center. I move it back into place but i dont see a remember placement option and this happens everytime I use the browser. Any ideas?

Why not try cmd-T, and then your new page will open up in a brand new tab in safari.

By having each new page open up in the center, the one behind it would be hid. I beleive that is why they are staggered.

But i much prefer tabbed browsing (cmd-T).

Edit:
One more thing i really like...
When someone has put a non-hyperlinked web address in their message like:
.ww.blahblahblah... (edit: of course AI won't let me put in a non-linked web address)

All you need to do is double click the address (the entire address gets highlighted) then cmd-c, cmd-t, cmd-v, ENTER.

Super-Speedy the link is loading in the new window, and my hands never have to leave the keyboard.

You could make a local html file be your homepage, and put some javascript in it that always tells it where to go. I wouldn't know how you would do it, but I know it's possible.

I tried it with tabs enabled and disabled and it did it even when I opened only one window. Ill check it again. One thing I noticed about Safari is that it is unstable. One day it works great, the next day it refuses to load any web sites.

Another thing I noticed-I copy and pasted some weblinks into textedit and they showed up as clickable links. I changed it to plain text that one time and now I cant get it to come up as web links anymore and I see no way to make it do so. Wierd, whacky stuff.
