I wouldn't get involved with an install disc just yet, Rita; for starters, I'd just re-run the Safari 4.1.3 (the latest version of Safari for Tiger) updater...only a 29.46Mb d/l, so your bandwidth cap won't be strained.

As for your bookmarks (~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist, presumably), simply move them back from your desktop to ~/Library/Safari after you've re-updated Safari. (Edit: Elect to replace the existing file if you're asked.)

Also, and please excuse the repeat if this has come up before, in view of your bandwidth cap I suggest that you save the Safari updater and all other d/l's against future need and bandwidth limitations.

You mean even though I have Safari 4.1.3, re-download it to my browser again without doing anything else, or should I delete Safari first? No, then I couldn't update it, duh! Do I need to corral everything in Safari first (somehow) to not get them mixed up? Rita

You shouldn't run into any "mix-up" issues, Rita; the Safari updater will simply "refresh" Safari and leave its ancillary files untouched.

If it will make you more comfortable, though, navigate to /Users/your short name/Library/Safari, select it, and hit command-D to create a duplicate that the updater won't even find, let alone touch.

Hello Rita:

I've followed this thread and others that you've begun and wonder if you wouldn't benefit from a "Tiger Edition" of David Pogue's "Mac OSX The Missing Manual". It's 850 pages of well written and illustrated, easy to understand information.

I have a copy from when I was OS 10.4 and it's now collecting dust. If you'd like like to have it, I'll be quite happy to send it along. Just send a private email to me at this address "dpi (at) shaw (dot) ca" with the mailing details. You'll be doing me a favour too...I need the shelf space but hate to throw books away.

Hi Ryck:

OK, now I'm embarrassed! I have had that book ever since I've had my iBook. I've gotten out of the habit of using it because it never seemed to answer my questions. Thanks for reminding me of it, though. I will search there first before I ask questions from now on.

Please don't toss your book. Maybe offer it on Freecycle or give it to a second hand store. I can't bear to toss books, either. I always give them away.

P.S. I really do appreciate the reminder about that book. Duh!! blush

Rita

Hi Rita:

No need to be embarrassed. You're probably like me in that FTM is often a preferable solution source due to the social aspect and the way FTM folks can make things more comprehensible by relating to their identical or similar experiences.

Not to worry....the local newspaper has an annual book drive where they sell used books with the proceeds going to charity. And, as I look at bookshelves around the house, I can see a number of other good candidates.

Be well.
