Safari Solution

As a safari user, 

I have run into a problem a few months ago where I was no longer able to post comments on other Blogger user's contributions.  All works well if I use Chrome, but that seems a PITA to shift from one browser to another.  Though both browsers have there merits, I prefer Safari when I am on my Mac.

There has been some chatter here, but no solutions other than to change browsers.  Since I tend to obsess on things and am tenacious enough to keep going until I die, essentially, I think I may have come upon a solution.

While in Safari hit the command and , keys together to open preferences.  Choose the Privacy tab and then uncheck the Prevent cross-site tracking box.    You will be able to post in Blogger comments.




Not only am I obsessive, but I am a bit of a paranoid too, so when I finish my business in Blogger, I reverse the process and recheck the box.

...and now for something completely different...

Because I am a mature adult, I like to read the comics in the morning.  One that I enjoy is 9 Chickweed Lane.  This entry shows a recurrent them through out the strip.  Note how the advice columnist replies to his correspondents.  Seem familiar?

Cheers,
-Mike

  1. I'm also able to post to Blogger from Safari by using the private browsing tab. Bit of a nuisance as I first have to copy the blog URL.

  2. I gave up on Apple when they switched to Intel chips. I could go on and on about even their most recent. Instead I'll stick to one of my typewriters while I run Linux on any old regular PC when I need to do something that requires a PC.
