    Tab Bar Disappearing in Safari
    Hi,

    I am running Snow Leopard, and I have had this problem happen to me a couple times now, where the tab bar in safari disappeared, even though I still had several tabs open. If I tried to close the window it even warned me several tabs were still open even though I could not see the tab bar, though I could still navigate through the different tabs somewhat by clicking Window-Select Next Tab on safari.

    I tried clicking on View-Show Tab Bar, but when I tried that the only option I had was to hide the tab bar, but even that was unclickable, you know where the color of the font is grey instead of black showing you can't click on that option. If I close safari and then reopen it, the tabs work again, but I lose all the tabs I had open by doing that.

    Anybody have any ideas to fix this if it happens to me again?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Forum. In that scene the first thing i would do is download and run this and if that did not do the trick then start dragging .plist files to desktop until i found the Safari one that was corrupt.

    Like, how many do you have? I only find these in OS 10.5.8 Safari 4.0.5
    HD/Users/MyUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.RSS.plist
    HD/Users/MyUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist

    Actually it was more a figure of speech than an finite number - as i had not looked to see what was in prefs folder, but knew there would be some.
