Enable the Debug menu in Safari 4
Authored by: dksp on Jul 02, '09 07:50:28AM

Since the official Safari 4 I have an entry in Safari's preferences to enable the debug menu. It's in the "Advanced" tab.

No: what you have in the "Advanced" tab is an option to show the *Develop* menu, not the Debug one.

Enable the Debug menu in Safari 4

In Safari 4 there is a debug menu and a develop menu, the develop menu is enabled using the advanced preferences but the debug menu is enabled using the defaults command or secrets.

The 2 together are roughly the same as the debug menu in Safari 3.

How do you do the same thing to Safari for Windows? Thanks.

Yes. It can be enabled in Windows, but requires editing the file: c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Apple Computer\Preferences\com.apple.safari.plist

Unfortunately, the file is encoded and needs to be edited on a Mac using the Developers Tool "Property List Editor". If you send the file to a Mac user and have them add the boolean item "IncludeInternalDebugMenu" set to "True" and replace it in the above location the debug menu will be enabled.
