Stop SafariStand from breaking Safari 3 Web Browsers
When I first tried Safari 3, it was unusable. Every time it loaded a page, it would fail to render and the previous page (or blank window) would remain. Only reloading would cause pages to render properly.

I tracked the problem down to SafariStand -- in particular, its site alteration feature (which was high on my list of suspects from the beginning). So if you want to use SafariStand with Safari 3, you'll have to switch the site alteration feature off.

... and some input managers can even stop Safari 3 from launching at all.
I had this problem with SafariPlus.

Thank you!! That bug was driving me crazy, and I just assumed everyone using Safari 3 was experiencing it.

Taking a hint from this, I resolved my problem that Safari3 would not go to addresses typed in the address field (I eventually discovered that I had to hit the reload button): I was using Sogudi. If you have Sogudi, just disable it from its entry in the Safari menu.

SafariStand caused a different problem for me. I was having trouble with links that usually opened in a new window (for example, posts in my bloglines roll). I had to right-click and manually tell Safari to open in a new window or tab. I poked in SafariStand and turned off the setting for "Open '_blank' in a New Tab" and it seems to have fixed the problem.

Safari 3 and SafariStand Sidebar
Authored by: donquichote on Jun 15, '07 11:42:50AM

Safari 3 makes my SafariStand Sidebar useless - which I can't miss anymore. Does anyone see a solution for this?

Great hint, thanks. It also finally allows normal start of nightly WebKit, without moving SafariStand and other SIMBL plugins from InputManagers folder.

Whats broken with SafariStand in Safari 3:

- Site Alteration (causes pages to load as blank)
- Open "_blank" in a New Tab (links stop working)
- HTML Source Window (Safari 3 has a new source window so this just doesn't work at all)
so turn them off

Whats obsolete:

- The (annoying) popup window letting you know what windows/tabs were open previously
Safari 3 has History -> Reopen ...

About the only Feature (at least for me until the 'Open "_blank" in New Tab' is fixed) that really still works for me, is the "Tidy by Date for File Downloads" SafariStand setting.

So I guess we are all waiting for SafariStand to be updated.

I had a problem where I couldn't use Safari 3 because every time I tried to type in a text box Safari 3 just started doing some search that was showing up in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. I still have not worked it out. I hope that someone here has a clue. I of course removed every safari plugin that I could find. Thanks.

Every time Apple updates Safari you have to check your third party plugins and input managers. This same thing happened for me with the last update with the iGetter plugin.

This time around Safari 3 was crashing when I tried to view a PDF, which was because of the Adobe Acrobat Viewer plugin. When I updated to Acrobat 8 (or the free Adobe Reader 8) that fixed the crash.

This is the same situation with Firefox and some add ons. Thery break too with updates.

This time the only issue I had was with the PDF viewer. :) But I always check input managers and plug ins first.

Yes, thank you for this. I had already discovered his incompatibility around the time this was posted, but it's good to let others know. I had assumed Safari 3 was just buggy when I first ran into this issue. It is a beta after all.

It's good that there's an easy fix. I don't even remember why I ever tuned on site alteration in SafariStand anyway, so I don't think I'll miss whatever it was doing.

Does anyone know how I get the source edit thing back? If not does anyone know of any other dodads for safari that have the ability to edit the source within the window?

The last version from SafariStand it's working ok, my only problem is that I can't use the option to download flv files.
