I'm trying to create a Pandora widget using Safari's "Open in Dashboard..." but every time it creates a widget it turns out as a plain white box and can't do anything but be deleted. Anyone know why this awesome OSX feature isn't working for me? thanks

Actually it worked for me after I left it alone for a minute, but only played while the Dashboard was open. I did some more Googling and found more specific instructions on how to get it working more appropriately, and it now loads immediately and plays with the Dashboard closed.

I actually already read that, but thanks! I left the widget open for about an hour and it was still a white box. I made a simple one off of the main apple website and it was also a white box...I don't understand why this feature isn't working for me

**SOLVED**

Ok, thanks to Anonymous at MacWorld via this link I found that the default style of Safari was messing it up. Go to Safari->Preferences->Advanced->Style Sheet and make sure "None selected" is selected. That worked for me!
