Safari - Troubleshooting09 Oct 2018
- can’t access ~/Library/Safari/
- history entry can’t be deleted
- Safari doesn’t load the page after entering URL
can’t access ~/Library/Safari/
I can neither cd to this directory nor list its files even though I am the owner
and permissions seem to be okay (755) - I keep on getting
Operation not permitted error even when using
for some strange reason this directory can be accessed with Finder app only.
history entry can’t be deleted
when I press
Del button, the next history entry is selected without deleting
current one. clicking
Delete menu item in context menu has no effect as well.
this happened right after I imported history from Google Chrome so the first tip is to avoid importing history (bookmarks were imported without a hitch).
if you already have the problem, it might help to delete History.db* files in ~/Library/Safari/ directory and restart the browser (or even OS) - maybe they got corrupted while importing history.
also you might try to remove ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/ directory.
Safari doesn’t load the page after entering URL
see the previous issue - symptoms and solution are the same.
