Refresh Corrupted Top Sites
Authored by: gabester on Mar 08, '11 07:48:05AM

Something interesting that I have noted about Top Sites is that, while I have ClickToFlash installed and I've recently noticed that in my Top Sites wall that the thumbnails of the pages contain the static images from the flash content that was running on those sites at the last refresh. In other words, it looks like Safari captures top site thumbnails in a way that circumvents the ClickToFlash plugin.

I hadn't realized that the top sites page could simply be refreshed to fix all the "site unavailable" and other error messages experienced during connectivity issues, so this is a modestly useful hint (although I've found those sites often refresh their Top Sites thumbnails as I visit them - so I've never really had the need to refresh all of them at once.)
